View Full Version : [ubuntu] A doubt on upgrading from Ubuntu 7.10 to 8.04 LTS

I need to upgrade my Ubuntu 7.10 server to 8.04 LTS version. I read on https://help.ubuntu.com/community/HardyUpgrades the following:

Upgrade from 7.10 to 8.04 LTS

Known Problems


The upgrade will freeze on the locales package if you are using the (current) Gutsy kernel, 2.6.22-15. Reboot into 2.6.22-14 before upgrading. See the bug report on Launchpad for full details.

Since I have kernel version 2.6.22-16-server installed, my question is: do I still have to reboot into 2.6.22-14, or my version has already corrected the locales package freeze bug?

I've been reading the kernel bugs page and tells that is a locale problem with kernel, after going to 2.6.22-16 bug page don't appear any bug refering to that, but if I were you I'll do it with 2.6.22-14

I finally did it with 2.6.22-16 kernel without any problem. Thanks.
