View Full Version : [ubuntu] Upgrade to 11.04 erased my fstab [solved]

my $.02 on this upgrade:

I've been using Ubuntu since 7.04 and I've never had this happen.

I was at 10.04 and I downloaded the torrent iso of 11.04 and burned it to a CD and used that to upgrade. I don't know if that was the problem, but doing the upgrade that way erased my fstab. When I tried to recreate it, I was getting errors mapping to the fileshares. Turned out the upgrade uninstalled cifs/smbfs as well. In addition to uninstalling wine.

After reinstalling, everything is ok.... so far.

This was NOT the smoothest upgrade.

OK. Complaint over.

I don't think upgrading 2 versions at once is considered to be a good idea. That may be why some problems occurred.
