Upgrading Ubuntu 9.04 To Ubuntu 9.10 Beta…
As we know the Ubuntu 9.10 Beta has been released on 1st Oct,2009. Now time to upgrade from Ubuntu 9.04 to Ubuntu 9.10 Beta. So, i have spent my last Sunday. Update was very smooth. Here is step by step procedure for smooth update.
Note: Before starting upgrade to Ubuntu 9.10 Beta please turn of all your compiz effect. Because it may happen that it can break your existing system. Ubuntu 9.10 Beta contains the new Intel video driver architecture for testing. My system contains Nividia graphics card. I don’t want to take any risk. Also i would advise to take the backup from your existing system to be at safer side. Also Ubuntu beta contains Upstart so please make sure that you have Ubuntu 9.10 LiveCD. Here is complete information about Ubuntu 9.10 Beta Release
Step – 1:
Before starting upgrade process, please make sure that your machine is connected with very well internet connectivity. Also make sure that your system is up-to-date with latest Ubuntu 9.04 updates. If you have not done, please do that.
Step – 2
Now, time to start upgrade process.
Step – 3:
So, now time for Distribution Upgrade Process.
If everything goes fine, your system will boot in newly upgraded Ubuntu 9.10 Beta with newly introduced Ubuntu xsplash base boot screen. I got the success. But I have found some problem in compiz (My compiz effect was running during upgrade process). My system was performing slowly. I have Nvidia GeForce Go 7400. I have simply remove the compiz using
sudo apt-get remove compiz*
You may not see the new Desktop look of 9.10 beta, i would suggest to create new Desktop User and then login with that user to experience new look
Latest update of 9.10 (Beta) has solved my compiz problem with Nvidia card as i have written earlier. Before update i had:
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 41192 2009-10-05 20:35 compiz_1%3a0.8.3+git20091005-0ubuntu5_all.deb compiz_1%3a0.8.3+git20091005-0ubuntu5_all.deb
In today’s update:
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 41418 2009-10-16 18:34 compiz_1%3a0.8.4-0ubuntu1_all.deb
Now compiz + Nvidia (Version 185) + Ubuntu 9.10 Beta (Upate on 2009-10-16) Rocks
One good news that new Reliance Netconnect Broadband+ entry has been included in Ubuntu NetworkMangaer 3G list. I will post more review in next blog, till then bye…
