Upgrading Ubuntu 9.10 to Ubuntu Studio

Posted 01-26-2010 at 06:25 PM by jkzfixme

Recently I have found myself doing more recording and other multimedia related stuff. Even though I have long ago implemented disaster recovery and do more backups than you can shake a stick at, I still did not feel like reinstalling.
Luckily you can easily install individual aspects of Ubuntu studio ie all the audio apps.

sudo apt-get install ubuntustudio-audio

Upgrading from openSUSE11.1 to openSUSE11.2

Posted 12-07-2009 at 12:58 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".

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.
