Ubuntu 10.04 upgrade by Scayris Ubuntu 10.04 upgrade by Scayris
Note to self... Netbook is slow and servers are full. DO A DAMN CLEAN INSTALL! >< I'm such a lazy ass. I only did a clean install on my desktop...

On a side note, the new Ubuntu is awesome! :) For anyone that's not familiar with it, go check it out! :) [link]

Also, a good way to upgrade is to open up a terminal, go into root, type in nano /etc/apt/sources.list, point the repos to whatever release you're upgrading to, pressing ctrl+X, then Y and Enter to save the changes, and while still in root, typing in aptitude update && aptitude dist-upgrade to upgrade to the next release, like you would do in Debian.

That sounds like a really clean way to do it. I'll try it out for the next release if I don't have enough time for a clean install. Thanks :)

Agreed. New is 90% of the time better......and this is one of those times.

Agreed.....although I'd like a graphical interface for AVG instead of this command line bullshit. I mean I like using the terminal but to use command lines for that much shite? Hell no.

I've actually never used AVG... I only tried out clam with a gui frontend, but I forgot what it was called...

There are a handful of people, there always are a handful of people with hardware issues. I wish we did more testing.

Ah, you spoiled it :p But yeah, I'm well aware of that... Still, that handful is getting smaller and smaller, right?

We don't know, data is rather hard to get hold of. It'd be nice if every person who had Ubuntu was compelled to perform basic testing.

Maybe if an app was made to do that automatically and send out anonymous results? On consent of course, you can't force people into it...

Btw, you work for Canonical or are just nice enough to help? :)

I'm an Ubuntu member, it means I work on various projects including ground-control and :iconubuntu-artists: I don't get paid but it's important I do the work anyway.

Wow, ground control, huh? I took a quick look at it and it seems like a great idea :) Sadly I don't have time atm, but I'll check it out more later.

And Ubuntu-artists is an awesome group, I had no idea there were so many artists using Ubuntu :)

I'd actually love to help Ubuntu move towards fixing bug #1 too, but I need to learn at least some programming first..
