    I had few problems save for the kernel - 2.6.22 refuses to mount several filesystems at boot time, which were previously mounted by UUID. this worked fine in 2.6.20-16, which I'm using now.

    I can mount them manually after booting into single user, but that isn't a solution, and the console is constantly flooded with message about dm-mapper unable to find devices (the messages are gone now or I'd paste it in)

    I've never had a problem like this in my life ...



    UPDATE: purging the 'evms' package solved the problem

    Upgrade worked flawlessly. Started it last night before I crashed and burned, finished this morning.

    My upgrade went well, only things that does not work is:

    - VMWare server
    - Soundcard not detected anymore (intel ICH7 chipset), it used to work in Fiesty

    Apart from that Gutsy looks great

    Upgraded to 7.10 from 7.04. Everything but Visual Effects works (but, I am using onboard Intel 950 graphics). MadWifi via Restricted Drivers, and I haven't tried to sort out if NetworkManager will connect, as I use a hidden ESSID. WiCD works well, though. Seems to be faster overall, but I haven't gotten into loading extra stuff just yet.

    Gigabyte GA-945GM-S2 motherboard
    Pentium D, 915
    2X512MB Kingston DDR2/533 for 1GB RAM
    Western Digital SATA 80GB HD
    LG Electronics Flatron Widescreen, 19"

    I did like the fact I didn't have to upgrade the driver for the graphics, and was able to select 1440X900 resolution without any tweaking.

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

    I had some trouble upgrading due to dependency problems. However the terminal gave me advice to run dpkg --configure -a, that worked so I was able to boot up and I'm still setting up/fixing up this old box.


    I now have full printer support for My Canon MP600 which is cool, that was what I was one thing that I was hoping that the upgrade would handle.

    I had a problem with a program called EVMS, it was causing my processor to max out at 100% although the puter still ran fine. So I removed rebooted and now everything seems fine

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

    I installed gutsy on 2 machines:

    1. Dell Inspiron 8600
    Nearly everything worked flwlessly out of the box, which was a nice surprise, as the feisty install wasn't so easy.
    + no problems with 1920x1200 resolution, worked at once without tweaking,
    + the restricted driver for the wireless card installed itself without problems (after asking for my consent of course) and connected to an access point secured with WPA - very impressive, no manual tweaking with ndiswrapper, wpa-supplicant, etc.
    - suspend doesn't work out of the box, maybe it will after some tweaking, we'll see,
    - I see no improvement concerning battery life over fiesty - it's still much shorter than under XP.

    2. A desktop PC with AMD64 4200+ in a CrossFire configuration with 2 Radeons 1900 XT
    It was a disaster. Desktop install didn't boot, even in safe graphics mode. Alternate install did finish in the text mode, but after reboot X could not start - hung after the "Running local boot scripts (/etc/rc.local)" message.
    Eventually I managed to start X in some kind of safe mode after some tweaking of xorg.conf and running things like "sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg -plow" a few times with various parameters (vesa, ati).
    Then after installing the ATI restricted driver X started as expected in 1920x1200 resolution.

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

    I had no problems with the upgrade. I upgraded to the RC several days ago and downloaded all the updates during that install. Everything is working fine.

    I had hoped that the new tool for setting your screen resolution would help me manage my use of an external monitor at work, but I still have to switch out my xorg.conf files when I switch between my work setup and my home. As this was the case with feisty, I don't count this as an upgrade issue.

    It worked flawlessly. I have an older Dell Dimension 4550 two ide hard drives Windows installed on the second drive and Ubuntu on the first. I used the update manager and waited my 8 hours for the download to complete. Only real complaint was all the dialog boxes during the install waiting for confirmation. I always chose the default and wished there had been a timeout on them so the install would have completed by this morning.

    The upgrade worked but not flawlessly.

    The system would not complete apt-get update. I had to changes my sources from us to ca to get it to work.

    I was stuck at bulletproof X. I would not set my monitor correctly or install the restricted Nvidia driver properly. I fixed it by

    After I did that my system allowed me to install the restricted driver and turn on desktop effects.

    everything else updated perfectly
