    Upgrade 8.04 Server to 12.04 ?

    I have a 8.04 running qmail. Is there a way to upgrade this to 12.04?

    If you are going to upgrade, you would have to bump to 10.04, then 12.04.

    I have no experience running qmail, so I do not know if you will run into any problems or not, but whenever you do an update make a full system backup beforehand.

    You can find upgrade notes here:
    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UpgradeNotes

    It looks you cannot bump directly from 10.04 to 12.04 until 12.04.1 is released.

    is my best option to do a dist-upgrade? Are there any issues going to 10.04 and then 12.04? I am running Qmail 1.03

    Follow the instructions here to update to 10.04:
    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Lu...commended.29-1

    The same procedure should let you upgrade to 12.04 because 12.04.1 was released back in august.

    I upgraded to 10.04 and everything was fine but when I reboot now something with grub has changed. /dev/disk/modules cannot be found. I tried even booting to a different kernel with no luck.

    I'm running 12.04 here, this is the output of:

    Code:
    cariboo@willy:/dev/disk$ ls -l
    total 0
    drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 720 Dec  7 11:24 by-id
    drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 320 Dec  7 11:24 by-path
    drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 200 Dec  7 11:24 by-uuid
    no modules directory to be seen.

    I did a fresh install btw, as I seem to be upgrading every time a new version comes out. I've vowed to stay with 12.04 until it eol's this time.
