December 21st, 2008, 10:26 AM
hey i have looked around for a while but all i can find is the repositories for ubuntu studio feisty and we dont have a dvd drive to install ubuntu studio from so what im asking you is how would i update ubuntu (intrepid) to ubuntu studio 8.10 or higher?

Thanks a Bunch!,

You can upgrade to ubuntu studio by opening a terminal (Applications>Accessories>Terminal)

sudo aptitude update && sudo aptitude install ubuntustudio-desktop ubuntustudio-audio ubuntustudio-audio-plugins ubuntustudio-graphics ubuntustudio-video linux-rt

Reading package lists... Done

Search and install from Synaptic Package Manager --> ubuntustudio-desktop. This will select all dependencies.

Try changing the software source if packages are not downloading in System ---> Software Sources OR by typing in terminal sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list.

Would this change the kernel to the low lateny kernel which comes with ubuntu studio? if not is it possible to change the kernel?

What should I be adding to the sources.list file? I clicked on update my system after changing from Ubuntu 8.04 to Ubuntu Studio 8.04 and once the computer rebooted it removed the real time kernel and replaced it with the generic kernel.
