I have two questions regarding upgrading from 22.214.171.124 to 8.10. First of all I got an email from getdeb saying:
Why is this so? It's kinda strange i think to remove software because you have to upgrade the system. I remember I did an upgrade from Gutsy to Hardy on two machines. It all went smooth without removing any .debs. Anyway, of course I'll do it. It just seems very strange to remove --> upgrade --> then reinstall the apps again.It is with great pleasure that we inform you that a new Ubuntu Linux version will be available tomorrow. Ubuntu 8.10 brings hardware support improvements, new features and problem fixes.
Please note that upgrading your system with getdeb packages installed is not supported by Ubuntu and is strongly discouraged by the GetDeb team.
In order to perform a smooth upgrade please make sure you remove all getdeb packages BEFORE starting the upgrade, you can use the following procedure:

Second: can anyone tell me how ATI are doing on Intrepid Ibex? And what will happen to my current ATI driver version 8.9 (downloaded from AMD) if I upgrade to Intrepid?
