Hi, I got the 64bit dvd lastnight, and upgraded from mga2.

The install rebooted without a hitch.

I noticed some java mga2 packages could not be updated, this affected some gnome package.

I use kde4 so it's all good.

Bit of trouble, mcc boot options gui crashes.

I am now current cauldron.

Good job people!

Cheers Glenn
