Fiesty never posed any problems on my desktop. Gutsy though seems to be a bit unstable for my hardware config. 🙂 It freezes at times forcing me to restart the Gnome. Believe it’s got to do with the HAL/DBUS utility,Realized that when the login freezed today morning after a failed Synaptic upgrad and threw up a ‘Failed to initialize HAL’ error.
This was a bug, quite a few people were hit with in their Fiesty systems. or sometime after an upgrade from Fiesty to Gutsy. A modification of the hal in /etc/rc2.d/ sorts out this issue.
Fortunately the same works for Gutsy too! 🙂
