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

    HP zd7000 series laptop (zd7102us) with NVidia GeforceGO video and Broadcom 4306 Wireless.

    Install went fine. Compiz works pretty well, aside from a few graphical glitches on some transitions (which disappear after the effect ends).

    Wireless did not appear to work right out of the box, so I tried a few things and finally managed to see that the LED doesn't light up when the device is recognized - it only lights when the device is transmitting/receiving. So, it may have worked earlier, I don't know. I used the easy-script for BCM43xx wireless (a sticky in the wireless section) and after activating it, it's working properly, even through a reboot.

    I'm too "scared" to re-enable the default Ubuntu restricted driver, since this is all working right now. Maybe I'll try it later.

    So, everything looks to be good now!

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

    My upgrade from Feisty went generally well, with one (and only one) issue (which I haven't solved yet).

    I was using the proprietary Nvidia driver (nvidia-glx from the repos) in Feisty, it worked great. IIRC all I had to do was install the package and update my xorg.conf.

    I have a Geforce 4 Ti 4800 (AGP).

    Having less luck so far in Gutsy with this. If I enable the driver from the restricted drivers manager, x just shows me a blank black screen (which I can kill just fine).

    I tried commenting out the extra options, but it still wouldn't go, so I switched back to the nv driver. I also tried using the config section from my old (Feisty) xorg.conf, which I had backed up. No go.

    I tried using nvidia-glx-new instead, but the restricted driver manager still wants to install nvidia-glx (which I believe is appropriate for the Geforce 4 series; the notes for the nvidia-glx-new driver say that you might need to use nvidia-glx for that particular line of cards).

    Not sure what the issue is yet; I haven't put much work into it. It's kind of a bummer, since it worked so flawlessly in Feisty.

    That's my only issue, though. Everything else worked just fine. Pidgin even grabbed the account settings and such from the GAIM 2 Beta I had been using in Feisty.

    Fresh Install. The OS works "flawlessly" with some minor issues that don't really affect functionality. My only real gripe is the increased boot time for the OS (it takes like 2 whole minutes to get to the log in screen while Feisty always took less than 40sec.).

    My graphics are really pale now (like wayyyy to much gamma - though that is not the problem) using the ati driver. I'm using vesa now which sucks.

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

    Wouldn't boot after upgrade from Feisty. Got through Ubuntu splash screen and progress bar, and then hung with monitor going into standby and floppy drive activity light on continuously. Rebooted in recovery mode and it hung with indication "/dsdt.aml not found in initramfs." Running Asus P4C800 Deluxe (i875P chipset), 1gB RAM, P4 2.8C cpu, ATI AIW 9700 Pro, Samsung 1280x1024 LCD monitor. Was using Beryl with Feisty. Restored Feisty image and gave up on Gusty for now.

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

    I installed Gutsy on HP DC7800 and faced no problem during installation. However, the sound card (as always for HP computers) did not work initially. After disabling "Enable software sound mixing (ESD)" from Sound Preferences, I got sound from the front earphone jack. Could not get sound from the internal speeker, yet. Still, it is enough for me at the moment.

    Other than that, no real problem, graphic card works without problem.
    I really liked gutsy, especially "Scale" plugin of compiz rocks.

    The upgrade process was fine, it takes about 5 hours. The first thing I notice in the upgrade process was the notification window what shows the packages that will be uninstalled: My nvidia-glx-new package will be removed (in certain way i was not very surprised, because I install it using Envy). After that I get surprised when realize that Gutsy includes the new version of TVTime (hurray!) and other very nice packages like Audacious. After restarting the system I proceed to activate my compiz-fusion (that was running fine in Feisty), but oh-surprise! It doesn't work! (damn it!). My first step was to install the nvidia drivers using Envy, but I realize that my Envy version will not run in 7.10, so I proceed to visit Alberto Millone's site to download the last version of Envy (thanks Alberto!) It's good to know that we have the community's support when there are troubles and the quick response they provide.
    Once Nvidia's drivers was working, the next step it's to fire up Compiz, but still no luck, so I decide to purge all compiz related packages and (this is very important) the config files in ~/.config/compiz* and ~/.compiz. In addition, the Nvidia cards owners must setup the xorg.conf file correctly in order to get compiz working. You have to check that your xorg.conf file contains this:
    Code:
    Section "Device"
    Identifier "nVidia Corporation GeForce 6200 A-LE"
    Driver "nvidia"
    Option "RenderAccel" "true"
    Option "Allow GLXWithCompostite"
    Option "AddARGBGLXVisuals" "True"
    EndSection
    Well, after that and restarting the computer, everything was running fine, and really worth it! I realize that even Compiz in KDE, the system have a very good response. I recommend upgrade to 7.10, it runs smoother than 7.04.
    Keep the good work guys!

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

    I upgraded from Feisty Dawn and once in a while some package or other wouldn't install or wouldn't configure, the end result is, after the upgrade, "Gutsy" will not boot - AT ALL!! Multiple error messages and the boot process just stops.

    If this had happened to Windoze I would know what to do, but since I am a total Linux noob, I am lost. Fortunately, my emails are backed up to a Windows NTFS partition, as is my pictures and music, etc. I could just delete the partitions and start over again with a clean install, but I would really hate to do this!

    Short of this drastic step, is there anything I can do?
