broadly, I'm a big fan of Ubuntu. However, I really absolutely dread their
upgrades now. It took me hours to recover my desktop after the dapper
upgrade and now it's taking me hours on Edgy.
Having overcome many hurdles with packages that didn't upgrade (to be fair
this is my fault, I used apt-get dist-upgrade and should have used aptitude
dist-upgrade or the -u switch to apt-get), I now have a kernel that boots
up starts GDM and then within about 5 seconds suspends/hibernates. I then
hit the power button and it comes back up for about 5 seconds before
hibernating again. etc. On one of the few occasions I've gotten to login,
I've found that the gnome-settings-daemon dies too.
The latter is turning out to be rather tough to fix. Does anyone know what
service it is does the suspend/hibernate, that I might disable it?
