Hi

I have a 10 year old pc which ran 8.10 fine but having upgraded to 9.04 today seems to be much more sluggish when playing YouTube videos.

Any ideas?

I have found it to be the other way around. Intrepid seems more sluggish.

Did you do a clean install or go via the upgrade manager route? I recommend a clean install.

No, I just upgraded my 8.10.

OK, Ill try a clean install then. Thank

Baring in mind I am still a newbie, but what is your Video Card? Older ATI cards are no longer supported by Restricted or Proprietory drivers compible with 9.04. For those of us wanting to use 9.04 on our older machines we have to wait for the open source drivers to catch up or go back to an earlier version and use the 9.3 Catalyst drivers. :|
