View Full Version : [ubuntu] 9.10 Going from Beta to Stable

October 24th, 2009, 09:37 AM
Dear all,

I need to make a fresh install of Ubuntu on a machine this weekend. I am thinking of getting the Beta of 9.10 to have the most recent version. Do you know if it is possible to easily upgrade then to the stable version next week via update manager? Otherwise I would just stick to 9.04.

set release upgrade in software sources- updates to normal should do the trick

The beta version will update to the standard version as you normally update your system. To the user it will just seem like regular software updates. I did this a few versions back and I remember there were relatively few changes from the night before the release and the day of.

Yes, it is easy

When you install the latest Release Candidate this close to release, there will typically be few updates to the final version.
