View Full Version : [ubuntu] Will upgrading mess up my drivers?

May 28th, 2010, 09:11 PM
I'm running 9.04 on my desktop right now. If I update to 10.04, will it mess up my printer drivers and my system settings? I have had a lot of custom settings put in, like auto shut down, and setting printer drivers was a painful experience. I'd hate to have to do it all again.

You can't upgrade directly from 9.04, only from 9.10 and 8.04.

You would have to do two sequential upgrades, so it leaves a lot of space something to go wrong.

I suggest you start planning for a clean install of 10.04. You don't have to do it right now, 9.04 is supported for another 6 months. Just start planning it, and how to transfer your settings and data with least effort.
