It's difficult to tell what is being asked here. This question is ambiguous, vague, incomplete, overly broad, or rhetorical and cannot be reasonably answered in its current form. For help clarifying this question so that it can be reopened, visit the help center.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

They're going to mark this as "closed", I don't need to be magician to guess it. But I agree with you. I stopped using 11.10 64Bit and will wait for the next release in order to perform a new clean install. Even the Upgrade fails. – Geppettvs D'Constanzo Nov 18 '11 at 18:23
Welcome to Ask Ubuntu! Your questions can be better addressed if you post them separately. Thanks! – Christopher Kyle Horton Nov 18 '11 at 18:32
Did you upgraded or did a clean install? – Engels Peralta Nov 18 '11 at 18:37
@GeppettvsD'Constanzo many of us would like to see a real question, in the form which can be addressed. Making statements is not the same as asking a question. – Marco Ceppi Nov 18 '11 at 19:05
@GeppettvsD'Constanzo it is a highly subjective question. I have never had issues with Ubuntu in terms of stability, outside of the times I've used the development version (and that is almost required to be unstable!) – James Nov 18 '11 at 19:10

I don't really understand the question, but no, Ubuntu is usually very stable. Ubuntu has just been through a massive upgrade of platforms, though, so the previous version and this one is naturally not as stable as 10.04, for instance, which is based on a ten year old platform. Bugs are fixed all the time, of course, so if you report one, chances are the problem will be fixed. But it is important that you provide as much detail as you possibly can. And this is not the place for it. Bugs are reported on

Pretending not to understand the question may be easier than saying: "yes, you must change your definition of 'stable' to: fix everything on each release". But I can see clearly that the question remains and many of us would love to have a "new release" that does not forces us to fix all the things that we fixed in the previous release. Anyway, thanks for the answer. I am not the owner of the question but he should accept this as "the best answer" because of it is gaining upvotes. Yeah! That's the Ubuntu way! – Geppettvs D'Constanzo Nov 18 '11 at 18:41
@GeppettvsD'Constanzo The problem is that this question is asking for too many unrelated things and does not provide enough details about the current setup. Questions like these can cause major headaches once split. Also, we try to keep questions separate so others looking for answers to specific problems don't have to wade through a lot of other irrelevant information to try and find the solutions they need. – Christopher Kyle Horton Nov 18 '11 at 19:07
If you can translate this for me? why doesn't ICEAuthority recognize me? '" " chromium or audit configuration open anymore? I have no idea what is being asked. – Jo-Erlend Schinstad Nov 18 '11 at 19:26

I had the same problem once and was a bad upgrade then I format my drive and did a clean install now problem solved.
