View Full Version : [ubuntu] Wait for 11.10

May 12th, 2011, 06:43 PM
I've been an Ununtu user since 6.10. Recently upgraded from 10.10 to 11.04.

I really wish I had waited until 11.10. Lenovo Z565 laptop (Which is listed as widely supported by Ubuntu), crashes, reboots, kernel panics. Boot-up is also slower by at least 10 sec. Broadcom wireless adapter may be partially at fault - however it was working flawlessly in 10.10 with the proprietary module. Seemed to get a little better when I disabled the proprietary in 11.04 - but today we're back to crashing, kernel panic, reboot.

What the heck? It's so unstable, I'm having to write this post from my Windows 7 partition.

Can anyone advise on howto make U11.04 more stable?

I don't know what to tell you 11.04 runs great for me and so did 10.10 . There were similar complaints about 10.10 when it was released , Some said 10.10 was slow and unstable and the comment " I'm going back to Lucid " was common. Now people are having the same experience with 11.04. Without knowing what the hardware differences between a good or bad experience it's hard to suggest anything.

My 11:04 worked, only crash 6 times, a week, I just couldn't stand the inability to open several windows, I just hated 11.04 so I went back to 10.04, I like 9,04 Better, come to think of it I got 8.??
So tell me is 11.10 spozed to actually work????

I did like the way 11.04 let me install Google Earth so easy, and I was able to download You Tube videos easier, it was great for fun, but I NEED it for a work computer and it just won't multi-task worth a hoot.
