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 official upgrade instructions are on http://www.ubuntu.com/testing/tribe5 namely

Upgrading from Feisty

If you upgrade from feisty, please make sure that you have update-manager 0.59.23 from feisty-updates installed. Then run "update-manager -d"

Worked fine on my PPC Powerbook, with one minor reported bug in that I had to manually remove evms package. https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/evms/+bug/115616
But that's what alphas are for finding out.

Note however there is a bug https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/update-manager/+bug/141060 which can cause problems in getting update-manager to see the new test release.

If you can't stand that sort of bug, wait until the official release. But my thanks to everyone who helps the testing!

Yes, and this why I suggested that a bug to be filed against the issue - yes, alpha/beta there to find out those bugs, but if you don't report those bugs, they won't get fixed.

I never slammed Ubuntu or the beta, I slammed those who do find bugs, whine on osnews, then wonder why those bugs aren't fixed when the 'gold master' is shipped.
