Precise Pangolin

From: John Aldrich 
------------------------------------------------------
Ok, I give up on Pangolin. My laptop is unuseable with KUbuntu Pangolin 
installed. I'm going back to Ocelot. It worked, although it was slightly 
buggy. I didn't have to worry about manually hacking the grub.conf file to add 
"nomodeset" to the command-line for the kernel, and my desktop didn't crash 
every time I switched to a VT and it DIDN'T take 10 minutes to load 
everything. This is NOT an "old" laptop... it's got like 4 Gigs of RAM, and 
Ocelot was fine with it, so I'm going back to Ocelot.
Someone let me know when they have the bugs worked out of Pangolin and I'll 
switch. I'm guessing they'll have the bugs worked out about the time they 
release Quiescent Quetzel, so I'll just stay one release behind and be happy! 

It's not like I'm trying to use my laptop as a desktop replacement or 
anything. All I want to do is browse the web with it, but Pangolin just didn't 
like my hardware, I guess. :(

=============================================================== From: John Aldrich ------------------------------------------------------ Yeah... I got that working. But it's DOG slow! 11.10 works like a charm, but 12.04 runs so slow it's not worth trying to use. I don't know why that is, but on the same hardware, 11.10 works beautifully. I think there may be some bugs there, so I'll give it a couple months and try again. I'll just make sure to keep the reinstall CD handy for 11.10. :D

=============================================================== From: Dave Brockman ------------------------------------------------------ -----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 Yeah... I got that working. But it's DOG slow! 11.10 works like a charm, but Kinda sounds like your 11.10 install has a driver that is capable of 3D acceleration, and your current driver/install is using software to render 3D.

=============================================================== From: Mike Harrison ------------------------------------------------------ I installed 12.04 from scratch this morning, been tinkering with it as I install a lamp server and other things.. After playing a while with a Macbook Pro, I see where the 12.04 interfaces are coming from/to, and I'm going to give it a try for a while. I'm finding them frustrating, but it's more me than it. I think. I have to admin, smooth install. everything worked on install. After I both absorb the new interface paradigm and maybe make some tweaks, I may like it.
