Nice to hear Grant, thanks. I have a 8.10 server which I've held off upgrading as it's too critical to have to troubleshoot any problems (don't fix what isn't broken). I have a 9.04 install in the wild based on exactly the same kit.Hi all, I was brave. Yesterday I figured I'd upgrade my Ubuntu 8.04.2 laptop to 9.04. To do this the Ubuntu way, however, I had to first upgrade to 8.10. I have to say that with only 1 hiccup it seems to have gone fairly smoothly! On the upgrade from 8.04.2 to 8.10, the newest 8.10-supported kernel was installed, and this caused problems. However, the previous 8.10-supported kernel was also installed, and booting to this seemed to be fine. Upgrading from 8.10 to 9.04 was a breeze and happened without any hiccups. I'm still thinking that I'll re-Debianise it soon, but I was impressed with the upgrade process. Grant.
Perhaps I should be a little braver and just bite the bullet. Martin -- The Mailing List for the Devon & Cornwall LUG http://mailman.dclug.org.uk/listinfo/list FAQ: http://www.dcglug.org.uk/linux_adm/list-faq.html
