Upgrade Ubuntu from Jaunty to Karmic

Posted 10-31-2009 at 10:55 PM by Sonneteer
Tags ubuntu, upgrade

My first attempt to upgrade to Karmic was met with an error about ubuntu-minimal missing. The problem being the mirror I had selected was not synced with the new distro yet. (The "Select Best Server" option probably thought it was a good mirror precisely because nobody was downloading thousands of packages from it yet) So after switching to a different mirror, the upgrade went pretty smoothly.

In addition to the improvements one can find on many another review, a few things...

Ubuntu 9.04

Posted 06-07-2009 at 08:17 AM by uinseann

Well; I aquired the Linux format DVD (from a friend), with Ubuntu 9.04 and Mandriva 2009.1 as well as quite a few applications on the DVD (all applications are in tgz format though).

I decided after a day or so, seeing as I have a disk image of my Ubuntu Intrepid Ibex, I would do an upgrade. I have nothing to lose,time on my hands, and I'm interested to see what happens, as I have quite a lot of programs on this computer.

It's a special Linux Format Magazine edition...

Ubuntu 9.04 upgrade woes

Posted 04-26-2009 at 02:27 PM by Vermind

I upgraded my Ubuntu 8.10 laptop to 9.04 a few days ago when it came out. While the release seems good, there were some undesireable side-effects caused by the upgrade, my configuration, or the new release itself.
  1. In the upgrade process itself is a serious flaw. If a package cannot be downloaded, for example because of an inadequate or too crowded network connection, or the server on the other end, the upgrade process quits, giving me no option to try again. This results in a huge amount

Upgrading VirtualBox PUEL 2.0.6 to 2.1.2 on ubuntu 8.04.1

Posted 01-26-2009 at 03:53 AM by catkin

Hello

Many people have posted on the 'net, describing VirtualBox PUEL upgrade as straightforward. My experience of several upgrades was very different with quite some breakage, repair and grief Here's the procedure I have evolved by experimentation to make it less painful, more routine. Several of the specifics (paths, virtual machine name WXP, Kaspersky, TweakUI, and my personal user name is c on ubuntu and C on WXP virtual) will be different on other systems but it should...

upgrade to Slackware 12.2

Posted 12-13-2008 at 02:00 PM by Sonneteer
Updated 12-14-2008 at 09:56 PM by Sonneteer

The upgrade from slack 12.1 to slack 12.2 went fairly well. There were only a few issues, mostly with third party packages.

On the first boot, rc.serial made a lot of output complaining of nonexistant devices. But this was only a one time occurrence.

fbpager no longer works with the new fluxbox, but there has been some recent development with fbpager so there may be a new release at some point that will solve this. Tried fluxter with no success. For now I have switched...
