I upgraded my netbook to 9.10 Karmic Koala the other night – nae bother.
I’m mainly using that machine as a back up at the moment but I upgraded it anyway to see if there were any issues – there weren’t. (Unlike for some it seems)
Well there was an alsa sound question which raised my blood pressure a little. Sound is a sore point in Ubuntu I would say. Anyway it all worked fine even though I chose to let it hose my custom sound settings. The only thing was skype had decided it wanted to use blue tooth for sound output! I don’t even think my AA1 has bluetooth. But I just selected the right Intel HDA thingy and everything worked like a charm – thank goodness I am sick of faffing with sound on the AA1/Ubuntu combo.
Took a good couple of hours to run through so I might have been better not triggering it after midnight – but hey ho.
I have finally got ff3.5 which doesn’t support my fave black theme. It now has OOo 3.1 where I think I was on 3.0 before, dunno if there is much difference? ( I tend to use Gnumeric). I will have to spend some time with it to see where the pros and cons are. I’ll report back when I have.
Boot up is allegedly faster, but not that I have noticed – but it turns off fast.
What is your favourite 9.10 feature?
Did you have any upgrade/install problems?
