Re: Share with the community your Intrepid Ibex install/upgrade experience
Having confidently and easily upgrady to Hardlyon release date, I lept into Intrepid without too much of a worry BUT o'biy was this a different experience.
Unlike others on the forum my upgrade process itself went OK, took about 90minutes including package download, but no major errors.
UNTIL I actually booted it. Sure she booted OK, although I reackon at 3 minutes from power up to login screen is a much longer than in hardy. However, although my discovered errors are small in number they are fundemental to operations.
Let's start with Nautilus. If I go to my bookmarks, I am totally unable to use these to navigate around the filesystem. The first time I try any of the bookmarked shortcuts VLC opens and starts playing Harry Connick Jr!?!?! After that the book marks just stop working.
The second problem I have, is to do with OOo. In hardy I was running OpenOffice 3.0, this got totally fouled up by the upgrade process and would not run so I removed all componants of OOo and downloaded and re-installed Ooo3.0. Now I can get openoffice to run , but when started there is no text on the menu bars, I cannot type anything and the application won't open files I have already saved.
So far those are the major issues I have found, but I am sure there are more. There are a whole host of minor problems and glitches I have found so far, but to numerous to list here.
Right now, just for productivity purposes I would rather just downgrade if it were an easy thing to do. I guess I might have to dig out the Hardy Cd if I can't fix these things tonight.
