Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Just like Eugenia yesterday, I also upgraded my laptop's Ubuntu Feisty installation to Gutsy a few days ago. The upgrade process went completely awry, though, so I was forced to do a fresh install. Not a bad thing, as it gave me the opportunity to take a look at Ubuntu's soon-to-be-released Gutsy Gibbon with GNOME 2.20

The one time I tried a dist-upgrade, I corruped my system so massively (like ls and pwd wouldn't find all the files I could see in nautilus) that I was forced to wipe the drive and install Xubuntu 6.06 from scratch.

IIRC Ubuntu actually reccomended that people not do the dist upgrade to get from 6.06 to 6.11, there were so many corrupted installs.

That you should follow the recommended procedure of using update-manager instead of dist-upgrade? lol
