Someone mentioned yesterday that only the people with problems are posting which tends to skew the impression that the upgrade isn't working properly. Just wanted to add that I used the regular system upgrade to upgrade from Ibex (8.10) to Jackalope (9.04) and it ran perfectly. NO issues no problems other than the servers were slammed and very busy and slow. But it all went without problems and the new install is working perfectly.

Good job to the Devs.

Really great to hear feedback like this. I installed fresh and everything's working great. Boots super quick, and things look pretty.

This information about issues is true. I've made 3 migrations yesterday, and one of them was resulted in a raid0 partition that wasn't mounted at the first time.

When I investigated, I discovered that in the upgrade process, the raid device /dev/md0 was renamed to /dev/md_d0 and because of this Samba did not work after the reboot.

To fix this, I issued the following commands:

mdadm --assemble /dev/md_d0 /dev/sdb1 /dev/sdc1 /dev/sdd1

and, edited my /etc/fstab to reflect the new name of raid device.

This took about 20 minutes to discover and fix... Them, there is no way to blame the ubuntu team or any other person because I never imagined that is possible to upgrade AN ENTIRE SYSTEM with a single command line.

I speak it because I'm a MCSE in a new company/job with a mission to upgrade about 32 servers runnig various linux flavors to Ubuntu Server.

In 1998 I worked with Linux, and in that time I was obliged to implement and use Microsoft products.... And now I have the opportunity to use my Microsoft knowledge to integrate these both operating systems in a mixed environment.

And to speak the truth... I'm loving it! The Linux world was evolved in some way that I never imagined... Great, great job guys!

Let me know if there is any additional info that I can share with the community to help with the future upgrade process.

Regards,

Marcelo Santos.

Correct. If help is not being asked, then the thread will be moved to Testimonials and Experiences, if Ubuntu is being posted about.

I did the upgrade automatically and it worked fine. However, boot time is about 1 min (from when I push the power button until I have firefox open).

I may need a fresh install for a quicker boot time.

Great Job development team!

My neubiness always managed to complicate things until I found a quick and easy way to fix it. Almost fool proof, yet superiorly advanced and sharp-looking.

You guys (dev guys) are the great shepherds.
Thank you.

Update: I did a fresh install (took 20 mins). Boot time improved a bit. It takes 40-45 seconds now (depending on how fast i type my user name and pass)

my upgrade went fine, apart of some xorg config changes I had to do (wacom tablet support, which was noted in the release notes)
