    Hardy screwed my HP desktop up so bad I had to restore my Gutsy backup. Sudo didn't work, gksudo worked after clicking it a second time and then quit completely. It borked my wireless, I got it working intermittently but it finally quit as well. Then the system shutdown button quit working and with no sudo I was had to use the power button to shutdown. Pretty much the worse install of any version of Ubuntu ever and I started with hoary! Sad.

    I'm getting some kind of initramfs problem when trying to install or launch the live-cd. It should be solved by adding irqpoll noirqdebug but it doesn't work anymore. :/

    I upgraded using torrents and was very quick. I have listed the steps I followed here: http://ptcbus.blogspot.com/2008/04/u...sy-gibbon.html

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

    I performed an upgrade from 7.10, and it went very well. I found it less painful than all previous upgrades.

    I've always enjoyed upgrading Ubuntu, even when there were life-threatening complications (threatening the computer, of course)

    There are 4 main issues I've experienced... Perhaps others will benefit from this:

    1. Browsing Windows shares is broken in Nautilus/gvfs (not sure which is responsible). This can be a show-stopper for many noobs.

    2. My Compiz-Fusion settings were wiped out; not just the active settings, but the exported settings too! My Emerald settings survived. Backup your settings beforehand! (always recommended)

    3. After returning from Hibernate or Suspend events, I have to open a terminal, and enter:

    sudo ifdown ath0
    ..and..
    sudo ifup ath0

    to be able to access the network again. I know there's a fix, just haven't had time to implement it yet.

    4. I couldn't get 'sudo' to work. It would return an error something to the tune of "can't find host". Edit /etc/hosts and make sure lines 1 and 2 read:

    127.0.0.1 localhost <hostname>
    127.0.1.1 <hostname>

    Replace <hostname> with the hostname as entered in the network-admin program, minus the '<' '>'. Mine initially had a bunch of other text added.

    Don't forget to sudo! eg: sudo gedit /etc/hosts

    IMHO, the release should have been delayed until #1 was fixed, as it's a high-priority bug, and has given lots of people grief.

    (ps: feel free to correct any mistakes I made - I'm still getting the hang of Linux)

    (pps: I haven't had this much fun with an OS since the Commodore Amiga)

    So far, it looks like the install went very well -- took an awfully long time, though, and my Desktop Effects (compiz) appears to be disabled at the moment. I'm pretty sure it'll be easy to fix, as it's been working for quite some time now flawlessly.

    I am a home user with a simple set up so little to go wrong.
    Apart from the long download of the new packages everything went flawlessly.
    First glances are good. The new firefox works very well, and was glad to see that it now has similar functionality to Epiphany i.e. type your bookmark straight into the location bar.
    All my music, videos and photos work well with no need for any tweaking. This was a first for me.

    Everything went fine on my personal desktop, I had to reinstall Guild Wars under Wine for some reason, but that's not part of Ubuntu so I put upgrade - worked flawlessly. The webserver at work upgraded just fine. Since they generally wouldn't like playing Guild Wars at work I don't have Wine installed on that one.

    Upgrade went flawlessly. The only thing that doesn't work is my zen Ubuntu recognizes it through lsusb, but that's about it.
