The title says it all... It would be nice if we could have a ubuntu/kubuntu section in the your distro forums. Also, An "Other" might be helpfull too. Thanks....

    This has been suggested for other distros, and I seem to remember Jason saying he actually *couldn't* add any new sections yet because of a limitation in the forum software... that may have changed since the last time this was asked though.

    As for an "other" section, there are already non-distro-specific sections such as the Installation, Hardware, and Multimedia sections. You're welcome to post questions relating to those topics regardless of what distro is giving you problems.

    Or you can post in Debian, since Ubuntu is heavily rooted in Debian....

    To clarify: no more distro specific forum sections are being added at this time, pending the release of phpBB3 (and our subsequent upgrade). phpBB3 has proper sub-forums support which will allow us to have lots more sections without each section using up a relativly large chunk of the page.

    If I had added every distro requested to date, the forum index would be a massively long page by now.

    This does not mean we dont support or welcome questions for those distributions that are not listed..
    we welcome support questions for all distributions of GNU/Linux, you are welcome to ask them in the general forums, newbie, hardware, installation etc, and for Ubuntu you can post questions in the Debian section if you wish.

    Cheers,

    Jason

    When PHP5 becomes more common they will have to since IIRC phpBB wont work with PHP5.
