I’m upgrading my Ubuntu box at home from Dapper Drake to Edgy Eft. The process thus far has been long and not without its hitches. The install has stopped a few times to ask me about config files and it died twice – once when a package download timed out and another time when it refused to install freebirth until I manually installed freebirth-data. At this point, I have the new lighter GNOME desktop background and I have Firefox 2.0, which seems a bit snappier to me. I also seem to have some new apps in my menu like F-Spot Photo Manager, though it errors out when I launch it (no big deal – it probably has other dependencies which are not yet installed). I’m looking forward to trying out the new system when it’s done installing and I’m hoping that this upgrade didn’t break my X11 or otherwise jack my box.
