What type of problems are you having?
I've worked through some of the problems by manual editing files, and have it so I can boot up, but I may just re-install to fix it.
Tool, I still think it is worth the upgrade, many of the apps are improved, especially the desktop tools. Konqueror renders better and is less crash prone and Galeon is the best browser I've used on any OS.
Initially it was GRUB then switched to Lilo. I think it is the bootloader as well, the only other possibility is a new disk drive that is a couple of months old starting to go bad on me. Maybe I'll try a more thorough fsck.
>Tool, I still think it is worth the upgrade
Yeah, same here. Even if I am forced to re-install to fix it, I will go with 8.1, the problems I had initially with 8.1 were all related to installing too many packages. They don't co-exist very well, you're better to just pick the ones you need and then add some additional ones as you go. Going with the full package install guarantees problems.
<added>something I didn't mention, this isn't a new install, I'd been running 8.1 just fine for over a month</addeed>
