    Re: how to change repos to Saucy

    Major kernel version upgrades or ABI increases are installed automatically when a new linux-meta package is uploaded to the repos. i.e. the upgrade of that pulls in the new kernel version as a dependency on a dist-upgrade.

    Until a new matching linux-meta version is uploaded, you will have to manually select and install the newer kernel versions.

    There is no new linux-meta package matching the 3.9 kernel yet, so manual upgrade/install is it.

    Thanks for the clarification.

    OK, I suspected that. Thanks for the confirmation.

    I'm not sure about that. I had already installed 3.9 from mainline. When I saw 3.9 available in the repos, I removed 3.9 (that I'd installed), but it didn't offer to install it, so I went ahead and installed it manually. All seems to be functioning nominally...
    Unless I am mistaken, When 3.9.0.1 is available for Automatic Installation, it should still come on through even if you have the 3.9 RC8 Mainline Kernel installed. If you press a certain keyboard key at Startup, you will then be able to Boot to the Regular Kernel instead of the Mainline Kernel.

    Yep. The mainline kernels from http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/ are fine to be installed in parallel with the ubuntu builds in the main repos. A slightly different version numbering scheme ensures that they don't interfere with the installation each other.

    Saucy cycle conundrum...

    - Are we going to update gtk to 3.8 and follow gnome upstream?
    - Or are we going to remove gtk/gnome apps(totem, eog, gnome-terminal, nautilus etc) and move to Qt/QML apps?
    - Are we going to start testing Unity Next and Mir in this cycle?

    I'm in, but don't know how to get updates via the Terminal, if I enter sudo apt-get update it just says get then a number, but never shows any updates or looks like its installing.

    not sure what I'm doing wrong?

    Can you read OP and first post, there is... [B]sudo sed -i 's/raring/saucy/g' /etc/apt/sources.list

    sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

    ... or open Synaptic and upgrade there your system...

    apt-get update refresh the package listing, which tells the system these are the latest packages.
    running apt-get upgrade, or apt-get dist-upgrade will download and install the updated packages.
    Typically, it'll show you a list of packages that have updates, and a yes/no option if you don't want to install, or not.

    There are other commands to look at in the man page
    Code:
    man apt-get

    Don't mind me, I'm only passing through.

    Your second screenshot shows that you have already upgraded the base packages to saucy, otherwise it would still say "raring".

    There may be nothing else to upgrade on your mirror as yet.
