No. In the present case there is a (known) regression, period.
Which present case? This one?
Motherboard: Asus p5q-deluxe
CPU: Intel core 2 duo e8500
Video: Asus Radeon Hd4850
Power supply: Corsair 620 HX
RAM: G.skill 2X2gb
or this one?
Add me to the list of people with notebooks that won't suspend or hibernate. If someone could post newbie level instructions on how to upgrade the Kernel I'd be grateful.
Maybe you should stop the Ubuntu fanboy worship and see and accept the reality.
Which ubuntu fanboy? Me? Ahahaha, ok, no need to be too sarcastic about it, so I won't comment further...
Progressions? Hahahaha... Even in 8.10 some so-called "progressions" are unnecessary, unneeded "improvements" while others are waiting or are rejected for stupid reasons or bugs are not or even are never fixed etc
Yes, progressions, it was 8.04 or more specifically the kernel associated with it that made linux possible in the first place on my weird piece of hardware.. No idea about which progressions in 8.10 you are talking about, and I honestly couldn't care less about a significant part of them, however new gnome and especially nautilus would be highly appreciated... Things need to get fixed and ubuntu are probably not exactly doing enough in that respect so they need to get their fair share of blame. But then why are we talking about ubuntu in this thread anyway..? With the direction things are going, this may soon become irrelevant anyway..
Oh it's very simple. Try the PPA kernel fix as proposed by Beranger!
Oh is it?! Behold for the holly messiah has bestowed upon us a mighty universal solution to fix this broken universe! Well.. not really, not in my case, not in many others.. unless you have the specific hardware associated with it, which strangely enough is not necessarily the case..
Point is, people lucky enough to have the hardware for which the fix works, hit the respective repository, people not so lucky.. well you're out of luck
