View Full Version : [ubuntu] Unattended upgrade from 8.10 to 9.04

June 9th, 2009, 09:52 AM
Hello all,

I have 8.10 installed at work and I would like to let the system upgrade to 9.04 once I get going home - so I want it to be unattended (without asking me any questions or waiting for my input).

What's the best way to achieve this?

Also, I would like to throttle the download speed. I know how to do it using trickle, but is there a built in way to do it?

Thanks in advance,

So, this is what I did:
I let 9.04 alternate CD download while I was away. Then, this morning I did a regular upgrade using that ISO. The whole process took about 1 hour (I first upgraded to CD, then network upgraded latest updates), but the computer was usable for the most part.
