    Regarding 12.10 Release Candidate

    where would you find the isos for it when they are posted? (link please)...

    also, basically, what is the difference between the r/c and the final release next week?

    when final is release, is an upgrade needed and offered through the update manager or does it just become the final on the basis of doing your daily updates?

    if you install the daily you will have the final come the 18th, as long as you install the update via the update manager

    I'm pretty sure there's no release candidate scheduled.

    The difference between the beta and the final is pretty much some bug fixes.

    You should get the final result just by doing daily updates.

    Is it true that there will be no RC? If that is true I'll just go ahead and run the daily of 12.10.

    Re: Regarding 12.10 Release Candidate

    The schedule below suggests that anyone running the Beta is now effectively running the Release Candidate; the Release Candidate is to be completed by today. However, there is no Release Candidate release listed in the final ("Notes") column, as there is for other releases. So, it looks like while we're technically at the RC, there will be no RC ISO or RC "new version available" in update-manager.

    According to Quality Assurance the milestone ISO being tested now is the Final ISO image. No Release Candidate up for testing.

    The same thing happened with Precise did it not?

    The daily CD's are at the cdimage site; you may be able to find nearby mirrors if you hunt for them.

    If you are doing repeated testing of the ISO's, you may want to use zsync to update your existing ISO; that will typically download a lot less than a fresh new ISO. E.g.
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install zsync
    zsync -i old.iso http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/daily-live/20121011/quantal-desktop-amd64.iso.zsync
    Change that to match the date & version you are playing with; I usually cut&paste the URL part from a browser window, like anyone would.

    If you are just playing around with the post-beta2 status of things, simply keep running update-manager or sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get upgrade or synaptic or whatever your favorite tool for syncing with the repositories is. With occasional glitches when you try an update during a repository refresh or stumble over a buggy version of a package, it will eventually and more or less smoothly take you to the release version and beyond.

    Upgrading to newer package versions within a given release is done with just update-manager. This is true from the first alpha all the way through the final release and beyond until end-of-life. One of the things we like about debian style package management; over in enterprise redhat land you can't reliably go from a beta to a release, there you have to reinstall completely.

    Upgrading in place from a current release to a test (alpha, beta, release candidate, daily) version of the next release is done with update-manager --devel-release.

    Upgrading in place from a current production release to the next version (or if LTS, the +4 next LTS verson) is done by update-manager --check-dist-upgrades

    Thanks for your interest in helping test Ubuntu!
