View Full Version : [ubuntu] New Hardware Detection On Upgrade?

October 2nd, 2008, 06:47 PM
Hi guys, I'm making a quick wonder. I'm contemplating upgrading from 7.04 to 8.04, and I figured that this might be a good time to install the vidcap board (Hauppauge Win2000) that's been laying around since my partner upgraded her board.

My wonder: Would the 8.04 CD upgrade see the new board, or would I do better backing up my data and doing a clean install? I don't have much of a problem with the latter, but the former would obviously be easier(?) and faster.

Thanks bunches,
