Default Kubuntu 8.04 updates

I run Kubuntu 10.04 on my production systems but I also have Kubuntu 8.04 on
an old desktop that I run occasionally.

I have not been allowing 8.04 updates for fear that they might disturb my KDE
3.5.10, which is a major reason for keeping 8.04. Am I all wet -- would it be
safe to allow the updates?

You will be safe *updating*, as there will not be any KDE version changes from
3.5.10. What you are missing out on are any security bugfixes, and I believe
newer Firefox versions.

As long as you don't *upgrade* you should be fine.

Just to expend on it, I had similar situation and I had no problem
updating by

sudo aptitude update
sudo aptitude safe-upgrade

Hope this helps _ Goh Lip

On Kubuntu 8.04.4, have so far been offered - and accepted - to
*update* newer Firefox versions upto my current 3.6.12.

I wish I had known some of this a month ago. I was offered the
opportunity to upgrade 8.04 and I did it. Since then nothing has been
right.

dmesg fills up with "serial8250 too much work for irq17" and it
switches to "low graphics mode," which is totally unusable.

I decided it was time to try 10.04. The live cd for 10.04 fills the
screen with "too much work for irq17"
and it goes to low graphics mode then shuts down.

I went ahead and installed it -- dmesg fills with the same old message.
(And kmail has been upgraded into oblivion.)

I installed ubuntu (with gnome, which I dislike). Same story.

A google search for "too much work for irq17" turns up many others who
have the same problem but no solutions. Many of the machines are Dell
2400s, like mine.

Sure would like to get back to kubuntu. (And maybe even the 2008
version of kmail.)
