After The Fact?
All of my computers are now on Ubuntu 8.10 (Intrepid Ibex). That’s a Dell D820, a Precision 650, the GQ computer that I picked up at Fry’s a couple years ago, and even the One. I’m usually cautious about moving from a LTS edition to a newer version, but for some reason I decided to pull the trigger on upgrading each of my systems instead of performing complete reloads. All four machines upgraded without catastrophic failures. I did have to reload the kernel modules for my sound card on the Aspire, but it’s not a big deal. On the Precision, some lunkhead sysadmin (who is reamining nameless) forgot to move /home to the second drive last time. All I needed were these instructions and I was back in business: http://ubuntu.wordpress.com/2006/01/29/move-home-to-its-own-partition/
