So the release date is only a matter of hours away and now, having
been reprimanded for having a beta version and moaning it wasn't
working, I am planning to hopefully get Jaunty working again over the

The symptoms are that it gets to the login prompt on X and then just
hangs entirely.  I also haven't managed to get it to boot into
recovery mode either to look at logs etc., so I think there's
something a bit fundamental gone wrong.

Is there any way, do you think, that I could "upgrade" from an ISO
without losing all my custom configuration, or is the best thing to
back up the /home structure and wipe?

Thoughts very gratefully accepted,
