I think I may have found the fatal flaw in Ubuntu – not enough gurus! After posting to the forum and to the Launchpad bug tracker about my mysterious NetworkManager bug (my laptop has been freezing inexplicably on Pratt’s wireless network – found other people with the same problem, but no solutions ), my post and my bug have been untouched, going on 48 hours or so. The forum posts that get reponses? Mostly basic installation questions (I fried my x.org, help!) and discussion of new features.
This is not acceptable! Maybe I’m spoiled by the Gentoo forums, but you could at least get flamed for not posting the correct log file with your bug! I’m wondering now if Ubuntu’s vaunted “community” is very broad but very shallow.
