Ubuntu 8.10 “Intrepid” Upgrade / Install Series

By | 2008/10/20

Ubuntu 8.10 “Intrepid” Release Candidate will be out by the end of the week, and the final by the end of the month.  I want to spend the next week outlining all the different methods of upgrading and installing.  If you’re planning on upgrading to final you’ll be able to find step-by-step instructions here.

I’ll begin tomorrow with upgrading via your update-manager.

    Wouldn’t it be nice to install any distribution from an USB stick? I guess it would be a good idea to make a tutorial for it.
    (I found it quite complicated…)

    Perhaps you could clarify something for me. I often just do a clean install instead of upgrading but I keep my /home on a separate partition so all I have to do is reinstall a few additional apps, etc. However, what happens to the hidden files on /home during a clean install? Is it possible for the new version to have problems if old settings files are reused rather than recreated? Is there a preferred way to do this other than the official upgrade?
