July 17th, 2011, 08:47 AM
my 10.10 installation is configured with my favourite settings. will an upgrade to 11.04 remove the softwares installed? i have also made some changes to grub file. will all these be reset after upgrade?

upgrade will not remove your third party software . you can do it . i am not sure about grub but i am sure that your installed software will not removed while upgrading .

Grub changes might get lost. Exactly what grub file did you change? I am pretty sure that grub2 in 11.04 is a higher version (1.99) than the one in 10.10 (1.ninety-eight). I had one update in 11.04 that involved updates to grub2, and it seemed to lose track of where grub2 was originally installed. (I have multiple hard drives.)

Ubuntu 11.04 comes with GRUB2(GRUB 1.99). There has been a change in the commands needed to reinstall GRUB2 from the LiveCD.
