Ubuntu alpha damages Intel network cards

Posted on Saturday, September 27 2008 @ 02:38:07 CEST by

Engadget gives one more reason why it's not smart to toy around with alpha software. The site reports an Ubuntu alpha build has a nasty habit of breaking certain Intel network cards:
Well, it looks like the good times that are the Ubuntu alpha testing process hit a bit of a snag recently, as one of the latest kernels apparently had the nasty side effect of irreparably damaging some users' hardware -- specifically, certain Intel network cards. So far, it seems that only laptops have been affected by the bug, which corrupts the NVRAM used to store data like MAC addresses, but folks don't seem to be ruling out the possibility that it could affect desktops as well.
