Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat: Are You Experiencing Problems?

Yesterday Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat was released, now that people have had time to download and install this version of Linux we thought we would get some feedback from our readers to see if they were impressed with this version, or if they were receiving errors or strange problems.

I recently checked Twitter to see if there seemed to be any major problems with the release, however so far it seems as if people are more than happy, some people are very impressed with the revamped installer, whilst others are also very complimentary of the new Unity UI.

There seems to be a slight problem affecting people who are upgrading from a previous version of Ubuntu to Maverick Meerkat, apparently if you are having problems upgrading Ubuntu you should change the upgrade server.

If you are experiencing crackling/skipping audio there is a fix you should check out here, also this link has instructions for how to fix graphical problems which may occur if you are using Virtualbox.

I have fished around for common problems and to be honest with you the release looks solid as there is a severe lack of complaints, if you are experiencing problems describe your issue(s) in the comments section below and we will do our best to point you in the direction of a fix.
