Gutsy Gibbon to Hardy Heron the easy way…

April 27, 2008

This is how I just upgraded from Ubuntu Gutsy Gibbon 7.10 to Hardy Heron 8.04

This is great if you are doing more than 1 Ubuntu install, to save bandwidth.
The other alternative would be to do a clean install, but this I did not want this time….

It was a breeze with everything working 100%.

Upgrading using the alternate CD/DVD

Use this method if the system being upgraded is not connected to the Internet.

1.

Download and burn the alternate installation CD.
2.

Insert it into your CD-ROM drive.
3.

A dialog will be displayed offering you the opportunity to upgrade using that CD.
4.

Follow the on-screen instructions.

If the upgrade dialogue is not displayed for any reason, you may also run the following command using Alt+F2:

gksu “sh /cdrom/cdromupgrade”

Or in Kubuntu run the following command using Alt+F2:

kdesu “sh /cdrom/cdromupgrade”
