Clear message

What do you think of Kubuntu 8.04 (Hardy Heron)? Keep comments brief, we usually can not respond to comments because there are so many but we do read every one.

  • Just curious, was it a goal in Ubuntu 8.04 to make my system completely unusable with an issue known since beginning of april? https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/188226 (fix is not in release) - tom

  • Adept Manager's "Version upgrade" wizard crashed on the first or second page, first time I ran it. The second time it worked. --gandy
  • I still cannot control the sound volume on my Thinkpad T61p. --gandy
  • Resuming after suspending to RAM on my Thinkpad T61p used to work with Gutsy, but upgrading to Hardy broke it. (Some changes were necessary in a bunch of config files.) Resuming after hibernating never worked. --gandy
  • Synergy is unusable due to kernel shedueler changes: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/188226 --gandy

  • My desktop (KDE3) looks sharper than before --gandy
  • Battery management is awesome (with power consumption). Plus now the brightness adjustment keys work (Fn+F6 key combination). i've noticed some performance improvements as well, which is rather impressive! On the down side ... well the printer system isn't working on one computer and on both systems so far firefox3 has been performing very sluggishly, including crashes, hangs, slow rendering, ... but ok. Upgrading was a breeze though in general - CONGRATULATIONS and THANK YOU! now that the upgrade wizard works flawlessly how about "pimping it up" a bit? (artistically) . If you like I could help Smile :-) -- ANDREA

  • Thanks for all your work. I've got a pretty serious regression -- kernel panics with my Zydas USB wifi device -- https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/220013. LukePlant
