ubuntu 9.10, karmic koala

<Did the distribution upgrade on Friday. Took a while to download, as I imagine about a million others were doing the same thing. Relatively seamless, here's my notes:

1. had to change this line in /etc/fstab to get the 2nd internal drive to mount properly:
/dev/sdb1 /mnt/music ext3 rw,user,exec 1 2

2. ran this to get GDM to _not_ show list of all users (gconf doesn't work):
sudo -u gdm gconftool-2 –set –type boolean /apps/gdm/simple-greeter/disable_user_list true

3. Grip was uninstalled. Using SoundJuicer, lots to get used to.

4. Opera – no channel, but in Synaptic. Will it update?

5. Volume Control – Hardware Profile – Analog Stereo Duplex. Got it?

6. Squeezeboxserver (another new name) – uninstalled on upgrade, have to wait until it's fixed to work with MySql 5.1. Thanks Logitech. BTW, in the last year, it's changed names from slimserver to squeezecenter to squeezeboxserver.

UPDATE: Installed the testing repo and Version: 7.4.2 – r29092 @ Sat Oct 31 04:00:55 PDT 2009 has corrected the problem.
