    Stay away from 9.10 !!!!!!!

    I have just upgraded from 9.04 to 9.10 and nothing seems to work any-more. Programs start and then crash immediately, sound has gone haywire and my computer has become so slow that using it is unpleasant. Fortunately, I still have another laptop that I have just seamlessly upgraded from XP to Windows 7.

    If you are still using Ubuntu 9.04 DON'T UPGRADE to 9.10 !!!

    Clean install > Upgrade. That's all.

    /me sits back to watch the show

    If someone asks you to sudo rm -rf anything don't do it.

    I just finished upgrading... almost...

    Using Upgrade Manager in Ibis, I upgraded to Koala... but xulrunner would not install. Everything else appears to be installed. I was informed that I did not have a complete installation, and that my system may not boot properly. I was asked to report the problem, and clicked on the icon to do so... a minute later, I was informed that my download was not a genuine Ubuntu installation and therefore could not be reported.

    The system did, after some fancy keywork, reboot. But without Firefox, so I couldn't get online to report it (fortunately I also have a Windoze machine). I attempted to upgrade my installation, and was told that I did not have a complete installation and so could only do a partial install. While doing that, I booted my WIndoze machine and am using it to type this message.
    Every time I hear the word "Progress" my fur bristles!

    Sadly, I have to agree. This.is.a.disaster.

    Problems I have run into so far:

    No sound. It just does not work. Worked fine before.

    Nautilus keeps crashing. (!) I mean really, come on.

    npviewer.bin keeps crashing. (flash?)

    Slloowwww bootup. Twice as long as Jaunty, and lots of flicker.

    2 hangs on shutdown so far.

    I can't believe this is supposed to be production quality. It hurts me to say this, but win7 + cygwin is looking better and better.

    You are OBVIOUSLY a very canny Scot because you yourself have stayed away from the 9.10 upgrade. You must have more experience of these problems than I ?
    Meanwhile Windows delivers.
