    Post New Updater Program Needs Testers


    <p>Michael Vogt has put in a <a href="https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/ubuntu-devel/2006-January/014700.html">call for testing</a> for the new upgrade tool for Ubuntu. The <a href="https://wiki.ubuntu.com/AutomaticUpgrade">general idea</a> is that when a new version of Ubuntu is released, that there should be an easy way to upgrade without manually editing text files. Ruben Vermeersch asked if this tool would be pushed to breezy so that existing users will be able to upgrade to Dapper when it is released; to which Michael replies:</p>
    <blockquote><p>Yes, we plan to make it available in breezy-updates for a breezy->dapper upgrade.</p></blockquote>
    <p>So if you’re planning on upgrading to Dapper during the development cycle, this is a good way to help test a feature that will no doubt make upgrading to the new hotness very easy. Michael has also posted <a href="http://people.ubuntu.com/~mvo/dist-upgrader/">screenshots</a>.</p>

    Currently doing this after some hick-ups. Back-ports are not supported and needs to be remove from the source.list or else the upgrade won't continue.

    I'm currently half-way through.

    Does this cover Zubutu and Xubuntu upgrades as well?

    Edit: Meant Kubuntu (not Zubuntu) - it was getting late!!

    ubuntu port for the IBM zseries see https://launchpad.net/distros/zubuntu

    This would be great for those testing ubuntu inside vmware install breezy then update

    Upon restarting, Xorg failed. Need to do a dkpg-reconfigure after that network failed, this I not sure how to solve. I could start it by enabling it in the network setup but it never starts proper on boot.

    EDIT: Is there any command I could type to reconfig all packages? Maybe that would help.

    Hope this helps. The email on the fridge link goes to the developers list and since I don't subscribe or plan to subscribe I'll just post it here.

    I guess, this is just for 32bit Breezy?
