  3. Have you managed to get the IPW3945 card working in your laptop, with Edgy? If you have and could paste how you did it, that would be great, thanks.

  4. to Josh :
    I haven’t tested the IPW3945 with the regular kernel. I installed linux-generic right away. It worked right away without any problems.

    I use network-manager-gnome to connect to wireless networks (and wpasupplicant to connect to the wireless network of my university)

  5. Thanks to the upgrade procedure provided by the Wiki my Ubuntu is now useless! It starts to boot but crashes before the loginscreen.

    Hence no Superman Returns for me until I can do a fresh install!

  6. to Balle Klorin :

    You are unlucky 😦

    Edgy is a bit ‘edgy’. I advise new users to keep using Dapper LTS if they are already using it.

    I always advise people to do backups of personal data before upgrading to new release.

    Good luck,

  7. sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg fixed everything for me. Now my Ubuntu looks real edgy 😀

  8. to Balle Klorin :

    If that’s the case you probably installed some unofficial stuff like compiz. Make sure everything is installed properly :

    $sudo aptitude install ubuntu-minimal
    $sudo aptitude install ubuntu-standard
    $sudo aptitude install ubuntu-desktop
    $sudo dpkg –configure -a

    replace ubuntu-desktop by kubuntu-desktop if necessary
