    Upgrading Ubuntu to Intrepid Ibex from Hardy Heron

    First, before upgrading read these:

    a) run the update manager to make sure that all the updates have been applied to your system.

    b) read the release notes.

    c) Read the other stickes in this forum.

    d) Back up all your data. There is no guarantee that all will go well.

    e) Backing up with rsync - tutorial links. (see post #20)

    f) Remember that this software is still beta at this time. It is not for production machines.

    g) For more information about upgrading to Intrepid Ibex, click here.

    h) Test the Live CD for a while to make sure that your hardware will work with it. Use all the applications that you will use when you install it.

    i) Have a copy of Hardy Heron, in case the upgrade or clean install fails. That way you can reinstall it and have a working system.
    __________________________________________________ __________________________________

    Second, this upgrade only applies to Ubuntu and Xubuntu Hardy Heron, 8.04.

    - Only upgrade this way:

    To upgrade from Ubuntu 8.04, press Alt+F2 and type in "update-manager -d" (without the quotes) into the command box. Update Manager should open up and tell you: New distribution release '8.10' is available. Click Upgrade and follow the on-screen instructions.

    __________________________________________________ ___________________________________



    Fourth, this upgrade applies only to the alternate cd:




    1. Download and burn the alternate installation CD.
    2. Insert it into your CD-ROM drive.
    3. A dialog will be displayed offering you the opportunity to upgrade using that CD.
    4. Follow the on-screen instructions.

    Fifth, for a network upgrade, click here and go to network Upgrade for either Desktops or Servers.

    Just wanted to say that Intrepid Is very stable, no problems other than with Epiphany webkit.

    Sef, I should also say, Test an Intrepid LiveCD first to make sure all your hardware still works in this beta release. I'd hate to apply 3 hours of irreversible upgrades to find out that my hard drive no longer gets detected and I get stuck at a boot panic

    Re: Upgrading Ubuntu to Intrepid Ibex from Hardy Heron

    I'm ready to plunge in to Intrepid Ibex but I have a minor concern about the ethernet "corruption" issue.

    Has the kernel in the beta release been updated to fix this yet? My hardware may or may not be affected by this, but I'd like to be sure before diving in...

    Thanks in advance!

    Re: Upgrading Ubuntu to Intrepid Ibex from Hardy Heron

    In the beta, the affected driver was disabled. It will not load on systems susceptible to this problem, but that also means no wired networking. A kernel update arriving VERY SOON that you can apply to Intrepid via Update Manager will turn the driver back on, with a fix incorporated.

    Thanks for the info! I'm downloading the beta now, so I guess I'll know if I'm affected when I boot the LiveCD. If ethernet works, no problemo, if not, I wait for the new kernel.

    I'm downloading directly from the server at about 100 KB/sec and torrenting at the same time. Transmission seems to have stalled on the download after getting about 100 MB (shows "none"), but I have 12 connected peers being seeded at 48KiB/sec.

    Update: Bummer...no ethernet with the beta LiveCD. Guess I have the vulnerable chipset.

    Or maybe you have to reinstall your drivers?

    The fixed/re-enabled driver was already uploaded yesterday; should be a matter of hours before it is available as an update. Of course that doesn't help if you only have ethernet....
