Is there a way to upgrade directly from 8.10 to 9.10, skipping Jaunty? Other than doing a new install?
Update Manager offers to let me go to 9.04, but I'd rather skip Jaunty to avoid all the Intel video issues reported. Karmic supposedly has these fixed, and testing the Karmic Live CD shows impressive performance improvements.
Tried just installing the 2.6.31 kernel, but it won't boot. Have also seen suggestions to change my repositories to point to the Karmic files, and then do updates, but there don't seem to be any reports if this actually works.
So is there a way to skip Jaunty?
