    Who's running Gutsy?

    Just curious. I have it installed and am liking it so far. Now if ATI would just release those 8.42 drivers...

    I am, on three different machines. Two are great and have all the fancy eyecandy, for the third I too am wishing ATI had better drivers, but I don't think I'll even benefit from the upcoming ones with my card.

    Otherwise, all is cool.

    What card are you running? I have a 9700 pro. I played around with the 8.41.7 drivers with good luck, but I am sticking with the open source until 8.42 is out so I can have Compiz!

    Re: Who's running Gutsy?

    I've been running gutsy since tribes 3 on a macbook c2d. Seems to be running really well. Compiz fusion is very impressive, just works without a lot of messing around with repos or managers. One thing I'd like to see is better power management. I find that my battery doesn't last very long under linux. I've tried powertop but haven't messed around with it too much. Does anyone here belong to a LUG? I'd be interested in joining one if one there was one in the "neighborhood".

    Cheers from Austin, MN!

    I'm running gutsy, somewhat. Since the nvidia drivers are causing problems with anything glx-related on my machine, I've set my Feisty partition as my default. But I have not formatted the Gutsy partition... yet.

    Its not been a pleasant experience so far. Had to do a couple tweaks to the kernel modules to get Gutsy to recognize that I only have IDE drives. And now this issue with nvidia. Still -- I haven't given up on Kubuntu altogether. Feisty still works like a charm.

    I have come across LUGs for the following areas in Minnesota so far, but with widely varying levels of current activity:
    Twin Cities
    Northfield
    Duluth-Superior
    St. Cloud
    Rochester
    Mankato

    Running on three machines on my home network. Two have Nvidia cards and the wife's Dell (dual boot) has ATI.

    All talk nicely to each other, no problems.

    A GREAT piece of software...

    Re: Who's running Gutsy?

    I am. I finally managed to update my laptop from Dapper Drake (yikes) to Gutsy, switching from Ubuntu to Xubuntu in the process as it's an older Sony Vaio with only a 5.5G hard drive. I was running into space issues during the update, and figured the switch would be a Good Thing.

    Then on my desktop I had been running Feisty with Kubuntu, and just reinstalled with Gutsy Ubuntu because I was having issues with my Kubuntu install, and we had the live cd ready and waiting.

    All in all? *really* happy with both!

    I'm helping a friend, though, who just updated to Gutsy from Feisty and she's having a (#*&( of a time with Firefox now. All of a sudden JS buttons don't work. PHP pages were prompting her to run GEdit, but we got that fixed, but refreshing her .mozilla folder. Unfortunately that fix did nothing for the former issue.

    Anyone come across this or heard of it?

    Re: Who's running Gutsy?

    I've upgraded from Feisty to Gutsy on two machines and have no complaints so far. My rusty but trusty old vaio(with the monster 15 gig hdd and 256 megs of ram) runs just fine and the desktop (a newer HP slimline that I got tired of Vi$ta on). I started playing with some other OS's on the desktop yesterday. I read good things about Solaris so I installed it for giggles to give it a whirl. It just didn't do anything for me(reminds me too much of Win2K or earlier). Then I tried SLED and it also wasn't comfortable. Finally before bed I threw on Sabyon and it's pretty and all but I'm much more comfortable with Gnome than KDE. It seems more user friendly. To cut to the quick, I'll be putting Ubuntu back on as it really is out-of-the-box user friendly and straightforward. Now if I can get the vaio to go another year....
