Upgrading to Ubuntu Karmic

Upgraded to Ubuntu Karmic pre-release today on my Thinkpad X200s. Had two issues:

  1. machine wouldn't prompt for the key to unencrypt the hard disk so it didn't boot. This seems to be Launchpad bug 446591. I followed this fix.
  2. forgot that I had downgraded my Intel graphics driver to v2.4, causing my consoles to break, suspend to RAM to break and only support a broken version of EXA. apt-get install xserver-xorg-video-intel fixed this.

Things seem much better now than the mess I had this morning.
