I just booted the RC1 of Kernel 3.0 and got no crash at all very good. Only the virtualbox Module reports a crash though.
Touchpad is still recognized as a stupid little generic mouse.
At least the crash issue is gone...
I've been using natty on my Timeline X 3820T for quite awhile now and most thinks work OK.
One annoying thing is that when I don't move my mouse cursor for 20 seconds or more and then try to move it, the cursor on the screen moves in a halting/stuttering way for 2-3 seconds and then starts moving smoothly again.
This machine has the crappy ALPS touchpad so Ubuntu has never quite been able to configure it properly. But I didn't notice this problem until I installed natty.
Has anyone else noticed this problem and found a solution for it?
I notice the same issue if my notebook runs on battery.
On normal AC-power everything works fine.
So I assume its related to power saving mechanisms.
If you don't use your touch pad its suspended to conserve energy.
Unfortunately the wake up time is quite long
so this "stuttering" occurs.
May be you do a little research on that...
I also experience this issue when running on battery...
I did a little more research
and have to correct my previous post.
It's not the track pad waking up from suspension
it's the graphics chip.
If you have compiz (Gnome 3 or whatever) active
you will note the same stuttering
while switching between desktops (on wake up)
which runs usually smoothly.
So its a good thing though...
