View Full Version : [ubuntu] Jaunty sources.list edit proceedure

I installed Jaunty and then, instead of building the sources.list one source at a time (referring to adding sources for extra packages not included in release download such as packages installed in the multimedia How-To), I intend to just use my Intrepid sources.list and edit all of the "intrepid" to "jaunty".

Is this a legit method or will this result in many errors?

O, what the heck. Here is my Intrepid sources.list which I intend to use after editing it, if you all say it is OK.

hi,

i don't really understand what you are doing : if you want to replace Intrepid with jaunty, it's called a dist-upgrade,

so use: sudo update manager -d -c in the console and your sources.list is automatically update, or go to system administration softwares source and choose highiest distro

Instead, the other solution is , like your idea, to modify your sources.list by changing every intrepid by jaunty (don't forget some lines because the system be confused)

it's up to you :P:P

I think he's referring to changing any repositories he's added himself to Jaunty ones.

This thread had some good information on how to go about this.
