what ATI chipset are you running? Did the Open source drivers work?I'm having issues with x-fi sound card. There is no Linux support whatsoever. But that's my fault because I got the card before I got into Linux. Also having issues with ATI video card drivers that actually corrupted the whole OS on many occasions.
No I have had no problems with Ubuntu boot times. I had it booting in the same time as xp, about 30 seconds on my old machine (and it was pretty slow, so that was a pretty good boot time).I've been using ubuntu for a while now. One problem that seems to be present in all releases (including hardy) is that the boot time is poor. I use windows xp and freeBSD aswel and they both beat ubuntu when it comes to boot time. Anyone have any ideas?
