I have recently upgraded my Lenovo R61i from 8.04 to 8.10.
I have experienced some problems:
1. My screen brightness adjustment using the special keys does not
2. Although gdm tells me: "Password or swipe finger"
it does not authenticate me anymore using the finger scanner. I can
still authenticate with my fingerprint when I log in using the

feels slower than it was.
