RE: Wait a while...

Member since:

another reason to wait a while is that nvidia binaries are problematic right now. Nothing seems to work. Even setting xorg.conf up by hand and loading the latest binary driver manually instead of the provided one from Ubuntu you can download works. The ubuntuforums are filled with people pulling their hair out over it.

If you have an open source video card (and let's face it unless your computer is a 10 year old verge no one does) 8.04 is not ready for prime time.
