View Full Version : [ubuntu] Upgrading To Ubuntu 10.10 from 10.04

June 24th, 2010, 05:47 PM
I am upgrading to Ubuntu 10.10 Alpha 1. This is on my gaming machine so I can test it and if it screws my system up, I can reinstall.

I have not seen any issues so far. I think there might be a thread already open for talking about 10.10 but I am creating this thread anyways.

The upgrade is going faster than when i first did the upgrade earlier this month.

I am testing Ubuntu 10.10 on a computer with a 1.6Ghz AMD 64 processor.
It has 3 GB ram and a 500GB hard drive.

128 MB video ram.

Note: This is The emachines EL 1200-06w

I am using a Belkin wireless card which is only able to be used with the help of Windows Wireless Drivers (ndiswrapper).

I plan to report bugs in launchpad.

Last time, Ubuntu could not start after an update. Now, I am risking down time by using the Alpha version again.

I am installing by going to: Applications -> Accessories -> Terminal
In Terminal, I enter in
sudo update-manager -d
and then it asks for a password to open update manager. Then it shows the upgrade is available. I am still at the process of upgrading the computer.
I am running Ubunut 10.04 32 bit at the moment.

UPDATE: I didn't need ndiswrapper, and I am able to now use Natty, where it works as it should.

Uh-oh... I just was showed an error message saying it could not install a part of ndiswrapper so I might restart and have some down time :(
