    Update Manager users: How'd it work out for you?

    I'm not planning to upgrade to Hardy Heron by downloading an ISO and burning it, but it seems like a lot of the discussion has been dominated by people who did just that. I intend to use the Upgrade Manager and I'm feeling a little disenfranchised here.

    For those of you who installed Hardy via the Update Manager, how are things working out? Did you get a good installation? Small problems? Or did you get fragged like the Covenant after the Master Chief gets through?

    I used the Update-manager on Sunday to upgrade to the rc, then let the updates take care of the rest. The whole process was utterly flawless.
    This was for Xubuntu 64 bit.
    I laughed, I cried, I jumped with joy. I was here before Killroy. 8)

    I tried the update manager today. It was extreeeeemely slooooow.
    So I stopped that. Instead I used bit-torents. The steps are listed in here.

    I used update manager, it took around 3 hours to d/l around 1GB of updates (on a 8mb connection), so yeah it's pretty damn slow. I would d/l the alternate CD as a torrent and run the upgrade from there.

    As for for a smooth upgrade, well I had a few problems as mentioned here:

    But apart from that, hardy heron is all present and correct from this desktop.
    We are building the future, and the future is called Ubuntu
