Will You update/rebuild beta cd/dvd images once fix is released?
Sorry for negative opinion but it's ridiculous that many people who have such ethernet cards can't use this beta because of not functional network card and even can't get fixed packages by update without other Internet connection.
It should be at least mentioned as warning in release anouncement.
In my opinion any release should have been delayed because of such bugs.
I really like Kubuntu and Ubuntu distributions but it's release cycles
should be more flexible to make the best product as it can be. For
example I can't even boot Ubuntu Hardy Heron (LTS) shipped CDs on about
80% PCs around on which Gutsy Gibbon worked without problems and I still
can't use my DVD+/-RW drive at home with latest Hardy kernel updates - I
need to use Gutsy kernel.
And once more sorry for a little OT.
Keep up good work.
