Things broken in Ubuntu 12.04

a list of annoying things that stopped working for me after upgrade:

  • Nokia 3G stick is not recognized (Bug #992639).
  • some ACPI problems on Acer AspireOne netbooks: now shutdown or reboot hangs much more often.
  • If I set the power manager not to suspend the netbook when the lid is closed, that applies to my session only. If no-one is logged in, the netbook suspends on lid close, whatever I tried.

    With the latest kernel the bugs you have mentioned may have been fixed (I hope so)

      two of the three problems are at the user level (udev and power management configurator), so I doubt this kernel would bring something.
