Adept-notifier showed me new kernel updates, and I installed these, only to find that I was greeted by a whole bunch of problems.
During the upgrade process, Adept seemed to have hung at 100%, (yes 100%). It showed dpkg-run finished in the terminal. I had to close the window, but just to be on the safe side, I opened a terminal, and ran sudo apt-get upgrade again. There was an unmet dependency, and I sorted this out. All seemed to be OK, and I rebooted the machine.
I had played with my partitions a bit, and all the /dev/sda* entries in the partitions wouldn't be mounted. Also, a new partition that I had created showed some superblock error. I just rebooted the machine, using the old kernel, and none of these problems showed up.
As usual I checked on UbuntuForums, and it seems the new kernel has a whole load of issues:
Lets wait and see if the issues are sorted out. It seems all /dev/sda* has been made into /dev/hda* again
