    Re: Ubuntu 13.04 Upgrade!

    Just wondering. I have the Serval Pro running 10.04LTS and wonder if I can make the upgrade to 13.04 or just stay at 12.04. I am not a big fan of the new interface in 12.04 so I switched it back to what I am comfortable with. Can this be done with 13.04 or are you stuck with the Unity interface.

    I am pretty sure you can use whatever DE you like, be it KDE, Gnome3, XFCE, etc. But I am not sure you can go from 10.04 to 13.04 directly as a distribution upgrade.

    Re: Ubuntu 13.04 Upgrade!

    I tried the upgrade on my GP7, bought wiht 12.04, and upgraded to 12.10.and it took at least two hours, and I notice a file not found message when booting. I suspect it came from the GRUB loader. I backed up my files, download an 13.04 iso, and reinstalled, along with reinstalling the filesystem, in under 30 minutes. Shoud have done that first. thanks to tonyr2k8 for posting the news on the 3.2.8 driver as it was not there Saturday when I last checked System 76. I have it installed now.

    Just a couple of notes, as always:

    • Fresh installs and online upgrades with Software Updater are good to go.
    • Don't forget to install the System76 Driver after installation! Just go to http://planet76.com and click the download link to automatically grab the latest version!


    That should be everything. The direct upgrade instructions are located at: Ubuntu 13.04 Upgrade.
    Well, that was a bummer! I ran the Ubuntu upgrade option on my Lemur, and when the system tried to reboot it came up with a "file not found" error and that's the end of the boot No further info showing (at best, I got a grub menu and choosing "ubuntu" brought the "error: file not found.hit any key to continue" message - hitting any key did not produce any visible effect). Obviously, I'll have to do a fresh install, as I don't even know how to identify what file might be missing in the first place (and I don't se how I could find that out, even by booting from a live CD/DVD). I'll do that as soon as I get an ISO of 13.04, AND I have the time, but it would be nice if there was a simple solution...

    My take home lesson here then is to probably download the 12.04 iso and upgrade from that disk onto my Serval Pro, then download the System76 driver, eh? I am not terribly interested in these in-between versions, I prefer to stick with LTS releases. I think I may go that route. Any observations?

    Well, even though I am not as put off by Unity as I was at first, I'd still much rather use KDE, Cinnamon, or LXDE, depending on the system - no need to use Unity at all: this is not Windows, you know - you can choose whatever interface works for you!

    I originally had the 3.2.6 driver installed. Did a new clean install and used the 3.2.7 package. The keys now work.

    Thank you System76

    Re: Ubuntu 13.04 Upgrade!

    When I use Software Updater I get the following window - Failed to Download Repository Information - Check your Internet Connection My connection is very good.

    I have several problems since upgrading to 13.03 three days ago and I am concerned I am missing on updates to fix them.

    OK - I have fixed the problem now

    I've moved back to 12.04 LTS as well for the time being. It (along with the latest System76 Driver) installs and works flawlessly.
