Ubuntu upgrade

Although the Package Manager annouces a new release called Breezy I couldn’t figure out to select it and upgrade to it.

In the end I had to edit the /etc/apt/sources.list and replace every occurance of hoary with breezy in vim.

The dist-upgrade requires 461MB to be downloaded. Holy crap that’s a lot. Lucky it’s just one machine atm at work otherwise I would have to spend time configuring some sort of apt proxy.

Every 6 months a release eh? They should make it a year.


If you like this, you might like the stateless Web kiosk software I develop. Webconverger typically replaces Windows on PCs and is deployed in public and business environments for ease of deployment and privacy. Once installed it auto-updates making it painless to maintain. Try it where you exclusively use the only viable open platform... the Web!
