Last week Ubuntu 8.10, aka The Intrepid Ibex, was released.

Time to updgrade :-) First in my laptop.

I will be the using the 64 bit alternate cd to upgrade. This means that the upgrade will have a cd image as his source, and not the Internet. This way it’s much faster.

Before you start

In the Terminal, go to the cd mount point (example: /media/cdrom) and type:

gksu "sh /cdrom/cdromupgrade"

And now we wait…

During the upgrade there may be some questions about replacing some configuration files. I replaced them all with the new versions.

After restarting and reactivating my Software Sources there were more updates to do. This is because Ubuntu deactivates other software sources and because I made the upgrade from the alternate cd.
