    to look here first:

    I think it only bites if KDE is installed. The workaround in the second
    link worked for me, otherwise I wouldn't be able to post this...

    Frightening-- many of those errata are for extremely common things. Looks
    like disableling pulseaudio is mandatory at present. And the iwl wireless
    driver problems are not good-- intel cards used to be one of the best
    supported Linux wireless cards.

    I missed a lot of errors because I always do clean installs.

    I do not know about that. I installed skype-2.0.0.68
    and have no problem with audio. So far, I have gotten away with out
    having to use Adobe Flash. I did install the gnash-firefox-plugin.


    So far audio sounds like static when two apps
    access the audio output device at the same time.

    What is described should be called "update" not "upgrade".

    An "upgrade" is rather a clean install keeping /home as is.

    Well, the IPW driver issue could be a real problem... But as a pleased
    2008.0 I can wait until the 2009.0 or 2009.1 release before upgrading.
