Well, I did a both Upgrade AND an Install, but theres no choice for 'both'. http://ubuntuforums.org/images/smilies/icon_razz.gif
Initially I installed 10.04 beta2 over the top of my preexisting 9.10. It pretty much clobbered 9.10 when what I had thought too accomplish was a side by side triple boot of WinXP, 9,x & 10.x.
Should have known better.... removing conflicting system components...
I ended up nuking the OS partition (from Orbit, natch) and after some housekeeping partition management/resizing, I installed version 10.04 (beta2) from the LiveCD.
I had to add Medibuntu, Non-Free, and other repositories to get it the way I wanted it to act, but all in all it worked flawlessly.
btw, a few notable gotchas:
- I had to install GNOME ALSA Mixer to get my Creative Labs Audigy2 sound card to work (the ol' Digital/Analog JACK toggle fix)
- 27APr-29APr2010; Everybody and their brother/sister is downloading, hitting, pinging, checking, verifying, upgrading, updating, downloading from the same servers I am. Stuff is slooooow.
- ver 10.x is the 1st version to work my wifi RALink chipset card right from the get-go. (Prior to this version I couldn't both boot the LiveCD AND surf the internet, I'd have to go hardline or dualboot to Windows.)
- I think the 10.04 beta2 LiveCD maaaybe be the 1st one to allow my relatively older DVD-RW/CDR burner to actually burn media to completion from within Ubuntu (prior to this I've had to, you guessed it; dual boot into WinXP to burn CD/DVDs.)
Over all my Intel Dual Core P4 @ 3GHz running, 2Gig RAM memoring, IDE based HD spinning, Audigy2 sound card having, NVidia GForce FX 5200 video card displaying computer is OkaleyDokaley.
