I've installed Ubuntu Studio 19.10 Beta on my primary system.
System is a Supermicro X7DAE motherboard, 20GB RAM, 3ware 9750 SATA
controller with two Seagate 1.3 TB drives in RAID 0 for boot, a single
Seagate 4 TB drive as backup/archive. Video is a AMD/ATI 5000 PCI-E
card with two 25" flat panel monitors. Sound, which has not yet been
tested with 19.10, is a M-Audio PCI card. As far as I know all hardware
as properly detected at installation and seems to be working normally
(except the untested audio, of course).
The only difference between the 19.10 Beta install and my usual Xubuntu
system is the replacement of the two Seagate 2 TB drives with the two
Seagate 1.3 TB drives.
Performance seems much better on this hardware than Ubuntu Studio 18,
which ran so slowly as to be unusable (I did find that Ubuntu 18 plus
the backports PPA worked OK, by the way. No idea why).
I will have some benchmarks later once I've done some migration of my
primary system onto this new version.
Installation was uneventful, except for a weird desktop that briefly
appeared which seemed to be a concatenation of several desktops
appearing during the boot process running the live version, and once
after a restart of 19.10 after updates. This seems to be debris from
the creation of the DVD and has no effect on performance, but might be
scary to some users. If this is something that I should track down I
will try to catch it once on video.
Updates from Ubuntu proceeded without problems.
I haven't had any problems with the applications but "Software" failed
to complete the install of UnixBench from the Ubuntu server(s). This is
not a real problem since the current version does not run on this system
and needs to be recompiled, and I have the recompiled version already
available. I will try this again once I've migrated my directories to
the test system.
