" I can't see Chemist ever admitting any problems with his installs."
Of course I had problems - in the early days compiling kernels, graphics adapters always had some sort of issue or other. I'm sure if I needed some exotic hardware now I might well have problems.
But I do a little research, don't install new distros immediately they come out and sometimes need to be patient. (for example when I got a then new Canon 550D, Dave Craw's RAW converter dcraw wouldn't handle it, a week or two later it did). On the other hand some hardware has been easier to install like my 3G dongle, where plenty of people have complained about Windows installation.
BTW "Well, it works fine for me" are usually avoiding the issue"
Which 'issue' - if people are having problems that can be one or more of LOTS of issues - we are not going to be able to sort that out here. All individuals can do in most circumstances is report their experiences - you have mine.
Thanks for being AC by the way it really boosts your credibility !
