Ubuntu 12.04 alpha 1 network flaky after update
Testing 12.04 alpha 1 64 bit on my Asus G60JX laptop.
Worked well enough with previous versions ( http://
As with previous versions of Ubuntu, the Live CD / normal desktop installer couldn't get graphics right, so used alternate install iso, and had to specify "nomodeset" on kernel commandline after installation to get any graphics.
Was able to do a complete software update, then rebooted. After that, networking seemed flakier.
When I try downloading the nvidia display driver with "Additional Drivers", the download seems
to hang after a few seconds. Rebooting and retrying doesn't help.
There were several crashes, and apport collected data for them and even uploaded one of them, but I was unable to finish the login process at launchpad. I had to reboot to 11.04 to file this report.
This is all with wired networking, as wireless doesn't work at all.
