Alan.

Ive always used sudo update-manager -d

the d switch has update-manager look for new distributions. their are
other ways to do this, see here http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/upgrading

PS. 8.04 can go directly to 10.04. Im not aware of an 8.05. unless
maybe you meant 8.04.5?

At the cli and if you were going from 9.10 to 10.04:
$ sudo aptitude update
$ sudo aptitude full-upgrade
$ sudo do-release-upgrade -m desktop
but I think that "do-release-upgrade" (and its GUI equivalent) will
upgrade you to the latest version not from one old (albeit an LTS one)
to another old version.

You should be able to upgrade from 8.04 to 10.04 with the above
though. I would not feel comfortable doing so on a desktop though; on
a server, possibly, although I have spent the weekend upgrading some
servers from 8.04 and 9.04 to 10.04 by rebuilding the OS from scratch.

You could upgrade from 8.04 to 8.10 with aptitude too but it is not a
one-step process.

For the who-knows-what-time, "-d" upgrades you to the latest
development release!

pat,

you fill be fine. xubuntu, lubuntu, kubuntu, ubuntu are all the same
distro. it will recognize the packages u have installed and upgrade
everything. I've had all installed at the same time before, in fact.

the difference is just what is loaded by default. all the ubuntus
co-exist without problems.

?Hi,
New to Ubuntu.. I have upgraded to 10.04 from 9.10 hoping that my USB wifi adapter will work 100%.. I can see all available Access Pts in my area and when I attempt to connect to my one I enter the password but it will not accept it after a min or so.. WPA2 on the router. When I remove the password encryption from the router it will connect fine so I know it works.. is it an encryption password thing? My adapter is a Canyon CNP-WF518N2. The canyon website offer a linux driver but it was tested on Fedora and i can't get it to work. Anyone out there that can help would be great.

Alan.

I would certainly hope that if you have xubuntu-desktop for 8.04 that
you will end up with xubuntu-desktop for 10.04!

You might want to skip the "--devel-release" part of the command...

Can you try a different encryption system?

It's also worth checking to see if you have more than one different
encryption method enabled, and if so, disable all but one, ideally,
leaving the latest and most secure. I've seen this confuse Linux boxes
before.

By pre-Karmic, I meant grub2 pre-Karmic (the Karmic alphas and betas)
not grub1. Sorry about the lack of precision in the expression!

When I run dpkg-reconfigure grub-pc", I have the options to install
grub to /dev/sda and /dev/sda1. I do not have a test install on which
to try it but, if I choose /dev/sda1, will it fail or will I just get
a warning that it is a bad thing before it is executed?

Line 34! I am not sure whether rootdelay is meant for such a case but maybe...

The root in /root/dev, etc is not the final /root.

When the initrd "boots" it mounts /dev, etc and before passing control
to the kernel, these mounts are moved to something like (I would have
to unpack my initrd to check the exact variable) ${root}/dev, etc or
${rootmount}/dev, etc so the /root/dev, etc errors seem somewhat
inaccurate but the reason is clear, ${root} or ${rootmount} (or
whatever the correct invocation is) is not available so /dev, etc
cannot be moved over.

The /sbin/init message is also puzzling because AFAIK init is at /init
not /sbin/init in the initrd unless it is referring to the actual
init...
