Like so many people I spent part of the last weekend upgrading my laptop from Hardy to Intrepid. I'm not sure whether the upgrade really downloaded too much like Steve has seen since I was fortunate enough to have a fast line (thanks, Mum). I'll probably know once I upgrade the desktop which is on my 1 MBit/s home connection.

Faced some issues, in particular alsa-utils hangs during shutdown. I got around it by manually removing alsa-utils from the shutdown scripts, but will try the "shutdown network before alsa-utils" fix suggested later. Right now I don't have any sound at all, while it used to work before I rebooted Intrepid and had alsa-utils hang for the first time.

My "user base" isn't too happy with the upgrade of KDE games from 3.x to 4.x because ksnake has gone and some of the user interface improvements in kpat and lskat are considered big steps backwards.
