Bug Description

Installed Karmic Koala beta (AMD64) on a new Dell Latitude 6400. I did not get the standard (or any) "restricted drivers available" desktop notification so I spent a long time trying to figure out how to get the broadcom b4322 card to work (was showing up in lspci so it was very confusing). Also needed to enable NVidia 185 driver once I found I needed to go to system->administration->hardware drivers.

  * New upstream bug fix release:
    - Make Control-C work properly. Thanks Adys! (LP: #479548)
    - Read system vendor/product from sysfs, not from hal
    - OSLib: Add new method has_repositories(), as a foundation for fixing
    -, new_used_available(): Skip check if no package repositories
      are available, to avoid writing an empty cache file and thus never
      showing Jockey notifications again once they become available.
      (LP: #442776)
    - Shutdown D-BUS backend on UI shutdown, to not start the next UI with
      potentially outdated information.
    - Expose has_repositories() and update_repository_indexes() to
    - Download/update package indexes if they are missing.
