View Full Version : [edubuntu] Edubuntu 7.10 to Hardy Heron

June 4th, 2008, 09:09 AM

I have been using Edubuntu 7.10 for quite some time now and now is the time to upgrade it. I can not use the AptGet or Synaptic Package Manager to upgrade due to bandwidth reservations. As per the latest release announcement of Edubuntu (http://www.edubuntu.org/news/8.04-release), I need to upgrade to Ubuntu 8.04 first and then use Edubuntu Add On CD to install necessary packages. So anyway, I have to upgrade Edubuntu 7.10 to Ubuntu 8.04 to upgrade Edubuntu as a whole.

I already have Ubuntu 8.04 (Thanks to ShipIt) and I tried to upgrade the system by logging in my existing Edubuntu installation and then putting the 8.04 Ubuntu in ROM drive. The new packages were detected without any problem but I go no option to upgrade. The latest installation CD is free from defects which I have already checked.

I can not do a fresh format as that will make me loose all my present settings, which are important for me to retain.

Is there any way to upgrade Edubuntu 7.10 to Ubuntu 8.04, using the Ubuntu 8.04 Desktop Live CD that I have?

Please help me out. :(

Thank you.
