Im not doing very well here today at all. Since I updated to KDE 4.1
Beta2 Open Office wont work (Launchpad 237660),I cant add network
folders (Launchpad 200925) and just looking at dmesg I think Im also
suffering from "AMP is not SMP safe hardy lockup" (Launchpad 227671).
If I revert to KDE 3 same issues keep occurring. I'm just mentioning
this in case anyone is tempted to upgrade to KDE 4.1 - I think youd be
better off leaving it for a bit till things get sorted. Im going to
leave the camera for a bit till system is functioning a-ok again.
