2. I installed it a couple days ago and waited until this morning to update and all went well
Edited on Fri Dec-10-10 08:30 AM by madokie
updated to kernel 2.6.37-8.21. Theres still many issues but the basic OS is working fine. Firefox 4 is definitely faster but it seems my whole computer is running faster. When I click on the main menu, now, it's right there, really fast loading especially the system/preferences and administration, sub menus where with all the different versions of ubuntu/mint I've used it was rather slow there.

I'm using the main menu in the top panel rather than the menu bar as I like that better.

I got an email from ubuntu saying to wait until they had kernel 2.6.37-8 ready before updating as there were bugs in 2.6.37-7 . The first couple times I tried updating, still using 2.6.37-7, after loading Natty I wound up with a broken system but not this time.

I love playing with these new versions as they're being built/created.
