Re: ubuntu amd story: what a difference a version upgrade makes

Congratulations! Some speech is better than none.  I wasn't aware that 
gnopernicus was still being developed.  Have you tried orca yet?  

I upgraded my ubuntu this afternoonusing aptitude, and now it won't boot 
<grin>.  It 
can't find my root filesystem even though I specified root=/dev/hdb2 
on teh boot line in 
the grub menu.  

Getting the gui accessibility to work is a hit or miss proposition.  
Anyway, glad you had some success.
