    Re: Stay away from 9.10 !!!!!!!

    When I upgraded from 8.10 to 9.04 quite a lot was strange at the first boot. Sound wasn't working and the notification system was messed up, but after a few reboots everything was fine. To avoid similar troubles this time I just reinstalled from scratch, which worked without any issues (although it didn't recognize my wifi card at first).

    Doesn't say anything about "LiveCD" it just says "Upgrade Now"!

    Woah there! I can see things didn't go too well with your upgrade and it sounds like it really got to you, but let's try to keep things in perspective here.

    It's open source and it's brand new. Of course it's going to have bugs! I've just spent my one fee day this week tying in vain to get Karmic to connect to my wireless network. No joy yet, but I'm trying to keep focused on the sense of satisfaction I'll get once I crack it!

    That my friend is the joy of linux...

    Somebody had better tell Ubuntu! They are the ones who tell us to "Upgrade now".

    I'm not getting into M$ baiting, coz the mods don't like it, but .... SP2 in XP killed a lot of computers, as did Vista. Both taxed my patience to the nth degree as I tried to get computers in business working again. -- The difference ? A call number, on hold, to someone reading from a script that they have been given, to read out ---> Here ? the people who have issues get personal responses to their problems.

    Anyone who has not
    A) booted in LiveCD Mode
    B) Not backed up

    Should be denied ANY support, but we do not - someone on the forums takes time to help them, no matter what they've done - including re-partioning their hard drive and wanting the data back !!

    Just my tuppence.

    Phill.



    KOALA & HAPPY

    The problems with Snow Leopard and Windows 7 upgrades recently are a prime example of that.

    IMO the best option is to shove /home on a separate partition, then re-installing (if need be) is a lot less painful.

    Personally I gave up on upgrades after Hardy -> Intrepid broke everything.

    I have been using 9.10 for about 1 week now with no major problems. I upgraded from 9.04 to 9.10rc then just made sure i got all the updates.

    I tried windows 7 for 6 months , it seemed way to focused on appearance, it did not load my lan (xp did ) , it did not find the sound blaster sound card (xp did ).

    Windows 7 would have required me to purchase about $ 1800.00 in software and computer upgrades ( not counting Windows 7 itself ) to keep running it.

    I am very satisfied with Ubuntu 9.04 and 9.10. They both function very well.

    But they are not perfect nor is Windows 7 or Winxp perfect.

    So i would recommend you look at your logs and see if you can figure out where the problem is ?
