    My install of Ubuntu Gutsy 7.10 LTS has been pretty good, considering i used Wubi, because partitioning was starting to become something i couldn't do. (I spent 12 hours of my Sunday trying to figure it out =])
    But other than that, It has been great.
    I'll try the new Ubuntu once the full release comes out.

    Gutsy 7.10 is not a LTS release. Gutsy has an 18 month support cycle.

    Hardy 8.04 is going to be the LTS release with suuport on the desktop for 3 years.

    I installed 8.04 Yesterday over XP and it is great.
    I still have some things to install, but then I have great forms (this one) to get instructions and help from.

    No problems upgrading my destop to Hardy RC from Gutsy.

    I have noticed though that it now seems to take a lot longer to shut down. It doesn't display the shutdown splash screen immediately - hangs on black screen for several seconds.

    Anyone else?

    Waiting for full release before upgrading my laptop.

    Unhappy Re: Share with the community your gutsy install/upgrade experience

    I've tried to install 64bit 8.04 on another HD. I have been using 7.10 on one drive, XP Pro on one (Blushing shamefully) and a third drive for experimental use.
    The 3rd drive is where I tried to install 8.04.

    The rig is an Intell E6550
    GA-P35-DS3L/S3L MB with 2 gig 8oomhz RAM
    3 HD's (as stated above)
    Nvidia 8600GT

    The live CD runs just fine! I like the looks and feel of it..
    Installation runs until partition....
    The GPated starts up, then stops and says cannot partition drive...
    The drive is a mess (not a real problem since it is for experimentation) however I wonder if the partition script fails. I do not have the log (not in the mood to repeat this line of failure again) I will wipe the drive and try again with the official release (not the RC1).

    Hope it turns out differently. This is not a show stopper for me, but is definitely a disappointment.

    Install Xubuntu vers 7.10
    install flawless
    very frustrating experience during fine tuning the system since software installation from the repositories didn't work

    Question Re: Share with the community your gutsy install/upgrade experience

    Language.

    I have tried various times to get a minimal install in Norwegian.
    Last time i tried to really do it carefully, installed command line system made sure it was all in norwegian in the CLI, removed all traces of english lang packs, references to english in locale settings, etc/environment.
    And the first time I ran the desktop (windowmaker, fluxbox) it was in norwegian, but after a reboot all apps were in English.

    That SUCKS to high heaven, makes ubuntu useless to me.

    one time i tried to install xubuntu desktop. ditto

    Is there any solution to this?

    You can select the language to use before your login in session options. I guess your config was still pointing to english as default, i think you have to choose your language once to get this saved as default.

    Re: Share with the community your gutsy install/upgrade experience

    Well, I prefer not to run gdm..

    If you have to run gnome in order to get internationalization: exit ubuntu.

    I tried 7.04 -7.10 -8.04 today, including gnome, starting with a commandline install from a feisty cd. Of course 8.04 is not quite finished yet.

    Also the latest kernels print weird errors about my disks: two ordinary IDE disks in good shape. this slows boot

    Back to Etch until the newer stuff has been sorted out properly.

    I have tried many times to set language both in the selector and gdm. It works perhaps once then reverts to english outside gnome. I have purged all english lang packs and gone over all locale settings. No way Norway ;=)
