    on a side note, what exactly does an upgrade from 9.10 do to my installation? im still kind of new to linux but have really only messed with ubuntu for less than a year. im trying to understand what an upgrade really is and what a kernel does. does the kernel upgrade as well when you upgrade?

    It'll upgrade all the packages/drivers/apps on your system. And yes, you will get a newer kernel and the 9.10 kernel doesn't have the uber hibernate patches that the LinuxICE2 kernel does. Generally, I update to get working drivers for certain things. For example, the wifi driver on my ION board was broken in the LinuxICE2 kernel, but fixed in the 9.10. Or I upgrade to take advantage of a new package or package version introduced in the new release.

    Oh, also to note is the 9.10 totally screws with obd-ii and gps serial drivers. Its pretty bad so I wouldn't stay on 9.10. If it weren't for the need to use the nouveau nvidia driver in 10.04, i'd be on stock LinuxICE. Plus 10.04 has the right Qt version and other deps for MeeGo stuff...

    so 9.10 seems to be the best bet right now for distro's. i updated to 10.04 to see if my equalizer would start working, it didn't. navit crashes, touchscreen loves the upper-left hand corner (lilliput 7") and wifi has gone mad. i am going to do a re-install and leave it at 9.10 and try to work out my issues there. I really only wanted an eq to work, everything was great!

    Figured out what wrong with navit...

    https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...it/+bug/590424

    There's even a solution stated there. However, there are dependencies for nghost listed when trying to remove navit.

    Is there a way to remove navit without touching nghost? I know rpm has "no-deps", is there something similar for apt-get?

    IIRC, i was able to remove navit without any issues. it'll probably take "linuxice" with it, but that's just a metapackage. Just don't use aptitude and you'll be fine (aptitude auto removes orphaned packages). You can also 'tag' nghost/icepanel as manually installed options by issuing an apt-get install nghost icepanel before you remove navit.

    hope that helps.
