Dapper Blunder

Thursday, May 11, 2006

Long story short... I used the Espresso from the Dapper Beta LiveCD. I was impressed by how easy it was. However, it did not overwrite my existing Grub file, so I couldn't boot into the new install. I was too lazy (and sleepy) to fiddle around with it. I refreshed the old one and am now going the "sudo apt-get dist-upgrade" route. Almost three excruciating hours more to go.



I need more sleep. Sleep deprivation is affecting my decision-making abilities. I think I'll doze off while this thing's churning...

Did you actually get the first Beta? Ubuntu had to release Beta 2 because of the bug with the LiveCD installer[1]. We are now in Flight 7, which came out after Beta 2.

Oh, and it's no longer Espresso but Ubiquity I think :-)

Darn! I thought I had the latest. I used Beta 2. Maybe that's why 'dist-upgrade' took hours. Would it go from Beta 2 to Flight 7 if I used 'dist-upgrade'?

Yep it would

Awesome! I guess I have Flight 7 now.
