Whilst I do not have a portable computer running Ubuntu (actually, this is a lie because I do have one but Ubuntu is running as a guest OS on Mac OS X hehehe), I do understand the frustrations of having yourrendered useless after upgrading to the latest and greatest version of your favorite distribution. If you are like me who prefers Ubuntu, then I reckon that you are one of those who had issues after upgrading from Edgy to Feisty. Don't fret, I found just the solution for the problem (if you have not found it yet!).
