    There are a number of success stories in this forum. And there are many frustrations - which is why the forum exists in the first place.

    Have you tried running the live-cd? Take the live-cd and...

    [ubuntu] Re: Hardy Fresh Install Trouble

    Try booting the live-cd with ACPI off.

    At the boot prompt, press ESC and type:

    acpi=off

    Or

    noapic
  3. [xubuntu] Re: How to fix wireless problem - or how to roll back?

    I have the same broadcom chipset on my Dell Latitude 620. Like you I had a work-around for getting wireless and the nvidia card working in Gutsy. For the wireless card, I had to blacklist the bcm43xx...

    [ubuntu] Re: hardy heron gnome problem

    Looks like you're able to get to a gdm login window which probably means that X is running fine.

    Which probably means that it's the window manager that's failing. If it's gnome, it's probably...

    [ubuntu] Re: Hardy liveCD Hangs After Loading Kernel

    You might be having problems with ACPI. There are boot options that you can try when the live-cd gives you the boot prompt.

    Press ESC.

    One you can try is acpi=off

    Or noapic

    I believe you...

    [ubuntu] Re: 8.4... worth it?

    I think that 8.04 is great (so far, after only 1 day). I've been using 7.10 since it came out and my laptop was very stable. I've been using Ubuntu since 5.04 and every upgrade has been great.

    [ubuntu] Re: Problem installing Nvidia driver.

    I have an NVIDIA 7300. I did a clean install of Hardy yesterday and I had to enable my nVidia driver manually. When I had Gutsy (version 7.10) I used envy to install the driver. However, Hardy seems...
  8. [ubuntu] Re: Upgrade from 7.10 -> 8.04 hangs as soon as it begins

    A lot of people have been having this problem. It's HUGE with this upgrade. I had the same problem all day Friday (April 25th). Most people thought it was due to servers being too busy, but I checked...

    At any point did the live-cd work for you? Were you able to get X/KDE working?

    Here's a long post that might point you in the right direction. Please read carefully and don't do anything that you might find suspicious. It looks really well written though.

  11. [ubuntu] Re: how do you upgade from gutsy to hardy with cd

    I would agree with Belak. I think the Desktop CD is for a new install. I haven't seen an option for upgrading when you boot from the CD.

    You need the "alternate" CD in order to upgrade an...

    This doesn't seem to have solved my problem. I removed the NVidia restricted driver and still couldn't get past the "Distribution Upgrade" dialog where it's setting up the new software channels. Just...

    [ubuntu] Re: No Hardy for me?!

    I tried this but I still get the same hanging problem. Removing nearly all Third Party repositories doesn't help. I've attached an image of the frozen dialog window.

    [ubuntu] Re: No Hardy for me?!

    I think I tried that, but by using "System" -> "Administration" -> "Software Sources"

    I'll try doing that manually in /etc/apt/sources.list and see if it helps.

    Thanks for the tip.

    [ubuntu] Re: No Hardy for me?!

    I had the same problem for most of yesterday (April 24th) but it eventually showed up. I don't know if that's because I'm using Canadian mirrors and they didn't update till later that afternoon.

    [ubuntu] Re: Problems upgrading Gutsy to Hardy

    Apparently it's possible to upgrade using the "alternative" CD. Does anyone know if that upgrade is comparable to a network upgrade?

    I do agree that the servers are crazy busy right now but with...
