Edgy Eft Ubuntu

Previously I have posted upgrade instructions each time a new release of Ubuntu comes out.

This time due to the problems in the Dapper -> Edgy upgrade I would recommend a clean install.

Over the next few days I will be posting some of the extra configuration details that I needed to get my Linux server back to life. This will include details of mounting a hard drive and configuring Samba to share it with the windows network.

Ubuntu 6.06 : Upgrade instructions

Ubuntu 6.06 (Dapper Drake)   is out on 1st June 2006.

Here are the simplified instructions for upgrading from 5.10 (Breezy Badger) 


The instructions for this are not very clear to the uninitiated so here is a simple version:

  • Open a console as root.
  • cd /etc/apt
  • chmod +wr sources.list
  • emacs sources.list
  • replace all references to breezy with dapper
  • If you want non-official packages uncomment the universe lines (remove the # characters)
  • save and close emacs
  • sudo apt-get update
  • sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Wait and then you have a Dapper Drake system.
