    How well do the Nvidia drivers and compiz work?. Do the restricted drivers prompt give you the new Nvidia 180 drivers?.

    Working ok for me. I was offered a choice between the 173 or the 180 driver (picked the 180 of course). I haven't run any tests for framerates or enabled any of special effects, just the default Desktop Effects, but all seems good so far. I'm using a 8600GT 512MB card.

    yes, of course it works if I follow those instructions.

    The point is that the official way to install Flash Plugin is via ubufox integrated installer and it is BROKEN.

    Too bad they haven't got the Intel graphics card problems resolved. Looks like I'll be sticking with Hardy on my old desktop machine...but Jaunty is amazing and have been using it on my laptop since Alpha 3 with no problems!

    Very impressed so far. Seem a lot snappier.

    Removed the fglrx proprietary drivers and switched to the open sourced ones automatically and all still works fine (including the compiz fusion effects). VGA is x700 Radeon.

    Still can't work out why the boot-up usplash stops around half way through boot-up and reverts to text mode but that was an issue in Intrepid too.

    Very good job

    Have a look at the recent phoronix tests. The state of Intel graphics card is broken with any combination now. Even upgrading to X server 1.7 wouldn't fix everything. Probably with an SRU some kernel fixes (from 2.6.30) will be backported that will iron out some performance drops. But for now the kernel is in deep freeze.

    I would give it a try with the live CD 3 weeks after the official Jaunty release. Maybe then some fixes will have crept into a kernel updade.

    Here the Phoronix results: http://global.phoronix-test-suite.co...74-10432-20657 "EXA" is what you get now by default, "Linux 2.6.30 EXA" is what you might get after the backports, video-intel 2.4 is what you got with Intrepid. Note that these results are valid for the Intel Mobile 945GME only.

    Firefox! Probably not the king of some strange benchmark but still the king of the hill. Even with a bookmarks-sidebar

    See
    https://wiki.ubuntu.com/JauntyJackal...otes#Upgrading

    For possible errors.
    Well mine what it does is, it boots up just fine, it gets to the "choose name" screen, so i put my name and pw and then i does the usual, it goes black as if it's going to load the desktop, the cursor shows up (not the "it's thinking" circle) the actual cursor, but then it just stays black. I can move the cursor around, and if i leave it for 10 min, it stays black for 10min or as long as i leave the box on. The only thing i see that fails when i boot up with spalsh disable is AppArmor.

    Thanks for the link but i couldn't find anything on there that could help me.
