How do I Upgrade Kubuntu 7.04?

Hi, all.

As many of you probably know, Kubuntu 7.10 is coming VERY soon, and I have worked very hard on my system to make it what it is. I do not want to have to format my disk and start all over again. I know about the "Full Upgrade" button in Adept. Will that do the trick for upgrading to Gutsy, or is there something else that I don't know about?

The full upgrade button did the trick for me when going from Edgy to Feisty in Xubuntu. Kept all my settings and files with no problems.

Having said that, before committing to the upgrade, check around here or on the Ubuntu forums for problems others may have had.

It *should* go fine with the Full Upgrade option. I personally don't do upgrades, the one time I did one(Dapper to Edgy), it felt like my machine was going through water and was slower than when using Dapper. So I did a clean install of Edgy, and it ran perfectly. Since then, clean installs for me. I keep a pretty current backup of all my files, etc, along with a .txt file that has odd settings for all of my programs, in case I have trouble remembering how I had set a particular program. I can remove Linux, reinstall, and have all of my files transferred back and all my preferred software installed and setup, in about 90min.

Just to be safe though, make sure you have a current backup of all important files, etc. Will something go wrong? Probably not. Could something go wrong? Definitely.
