    I would suggest trying a fresh install of the Ubuntu 9.04 final, and definitely report bugs.

    I think this might be the issue. I didn't use any previous beta releases and somewhere along the line with RC I got freeze. When I rolled back my Intel driver to v2.4 everything work.

    What graphic chip do you have?

    1. You can restore that. Do a search, I saw the procedure a couple of days ago.

    2. You can restore that too, check release notes

    3. Intrepid was the same way. I put them back using a 3rd party repo. I'll try to locate that for you this weekend. Since the thread will be closed by the I'll send you PM if you don't mind.

    It's too soon to tell if it will be the worst, best, or average. Up to now, Hardy was the best, Intrepid 50/50, Jaunty - Not released yet, but testing version has been great except for crappy video support.

    You also have to consider that changing options mean it is not supported.

    It's Nvidia.

    People with all kind of graphiccards have experienced freezes and all of us can make a freeze happen with the command strace gedit
