[maemo-developers] [maemo-developers] Maemo and Ubuntu Edgy: Is it safe?

I have been using Ubuntu Edgy quite some time and I have been also using
Maemo version of the scratchbox and rootstraps (I don't use our internal
version anylonger). 
I have had no problems with that. However, with the flasher program
there is some 
library/kernel module version problem, it doesn't
recognize the device connected to the USB (USB works perfectly in
Dapper, the flasher program would just need a recompile). Might work if
you use older (Dapper) kernel but I am 
not sure, with current absense of Edgy-flasher (as far as I know, not
currently publicly available), 
might be safer to currently have some computer  still running dapper for
this flashing purpose 
and use the Edgy machine for everything else. For me Edgy works
perfectly except for one thing (which is
quite severe for me):
I had got the Dell Latitude D600 working with my 23" Apple Cinema
Display (connected with DVI) with using the
fglrx driver on Dapper but now the fglrx driver works (with same
settings) as badly as the 
ati or radeon drivers (which result a blank screen, the Cinema Display
don't wake up, it don't even
try and it is hard to debug because it wakes up only in perfectly
suitable 1920x1200 mode 
and text mode is totally blank, I think it might have something to do
with power management but
tweaking settings have been so far no go).

So it works very well, if you don't attempt to use the
(dapper-dependent) flasher and if you don't have a 
Dell && 23" Apple display. I have had no other problems than that (the
problems always tend to be concentrated to xorg.conf).

Best Wishes,
