I upgraded to Ubuntu 9.10 and every time I log in, it freezes.  I'm currently uninstalling it and reinstalling 9.04.  *cries*

It would be interesting to see if there is something strange in your startup to cause a freeze... although moot if you're reinstalling now.

I've stayed on 9.04 just because I'm too slack to upgrade this time round, particularly with 10.04 LTS on the horizon.




Best regards,

I just love Ubuntu, Xubuntu on an old machine and ubuntu 9.10 on our main one alongside XP. Can't beat this OS, and damn it man its free with plenty of free software to download. Hard to find a good reason to go Win7 where 7's Ultimate edition is $560 when it was first released.

I've installed Wine today and will see how the gaming side works.

Long live ubuntu

I find that I tend to get better results when I do a fresh install rather than an upgrade. Since you are currently in the process of re-installing the OS (9.04) anyway, maybe give 9.10 one more try, but this time as a fresh install? If that still does not work then you can always do the fresh 9.04 install.


Because a fresh OS install is so straight forward with a properly set up Linux/Unix system (/home on a different partition), I often do an install rather than upgrade when a new Ubuntu version comes out.
