View Full Version : [ubuntu] [SOLVED] from 8.04 to 8.10 slower performance???

I recently updated from 8.04 to 8.10. It went well I thought until I opened firefox. I'm now unable to view any type of video on a web page and viewing Movies (DVDs) on my system is now impossible. I've updated all the add-ons from the various vendors but am still at a loss. Any ideas?

I think fresh install would be better.

I've always found a fresh install is better than an upgrade.

My personal experience with 8.10 (Kubuntu, not Ubuntu) is that it's faster and more stable. Neither have I had any problems with media files.

Thanks, fresh install fixed my problem.
