    I couldn't use the Live-CD to install Dapper Drake. While navigating through the installatin screen the install always got frozen. So I downloaded the Text-CD I was always used and installed Drapper Drake. But since Dapper Drake I have this issue turning my portable off. At the end it keeps saying 'unregister_netdevice' and keeps repeating that message. So I have to shutdown manually. But I didn't searched for a solution to fix this problem. For me, it's just a minor bug / problem.

    I tried to dist-upgrade but I had so big problems that I had to install from the live-CD... anyway I would rather have preferred a non-graphical installation.

    I tried to reinstall Kubuntu Dapper Drake and it froze at 64% when it copied the files. In fact, everytime I have used the graphical installer, whether I burnt the CD myself or if I used the ship it CD, it has frozen before it could finish. As a result, now I can not even boot into Windows or Kubuntu because GRUB is screwed up.

    Re: poll : Did you upgrade to Dapper or reinstall ? Did you encounter problems?

    After dual booting with Windows XP (for work purposes) since Warty days, I recently finally was able to remove XP completely (I run XP on another pc in the office). Therefore I decided to reformat my hard disk and reinstall dapper only. Had only one problem, it took me ages to recover my data from my backup - I seem to have tons of the stuff!!!!

    Until my recent reformat I had just continuously upgraded from Warty, Hoary, Breezy and then Dapper.

    Mine also is freezing at like 69%, weird. Whats the difference between the Text-CD and using the live-cd?

    I installed it on my other PC with no issues at all.
