All the repos are for koala.

I'm not in a position to upgrade to koala right now for various reasons and was just wondering if I could upgrade from 4.3.2.

Thanks.

it won't work, you could "i think" upgrade to 4.3, that was known to break a desktop.

in fact i broke my desktop in karmic upgrading to 4.4

btw if your using jaunty i would suggest a clean install going to karmic or lucid, the file system has changed starting with karmic.ext3 to ext4..........

Ya, that's one of the reasons I'm waiting for lucid. Thanks for the reply!
