Upgrading from openSUSE11.1 to openSUSE11.2

Posted 12-07-2009 at 01:58 PM by clvic

I'm starting my first (significant) post on this blog, reporting my experience on openSUSE upgrade, from 11.1 to 11.2.
I started from this useful post:
http://lizards.opensuse.org/2009/10/...-11-1-to-11-2/
that basically shows how to do this task by using the command line tool "zypper".

I made some variation to this procedure: I did not want to burn a DVD and I did not want to perform a network install.
That's simple!...

Upgrade Ubuntu from Jaunty to Karmic

Posted 10-31-2009 at 11:55 PM by Sonneteer

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 09:17 AM by uinseann

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 03:27 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 04:53 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...
