Hey, great news! I&#39;ve talked to one of my friends at the Cultural Foundation, and he said that we might be able to give some sort of lecture about Ubuntu, or perhaps Linux in general. But one of you has to write a neat formatted request for a lecture hall. Can you do that?<br>

Hey thanks for that brad. My local server here has been running on 6.06<br>
LTS and I was waiting on hearing some upgrade reports before I go down<br>
that road myself.<br>
<br>
I did a clean install for my laptop running 7.10 and that&#39;s been working<br>
just dandy. Seperate home partition there so just went with the clean<br>
install. For the server, I&#39;m basically worried about gallery2 and<br>
wordpress running on it. Guess, I&#39;m just going to have to get over my<br>
lazyness and actually backup all those pics and videos before I attempt<br>
the upgrade.<br>

&gt; &gt; Phew, finally. I am proud to announce that, after three days of<br>
&gt; &gt; struggling, I have a working Ubuntu 8.04 Hardy Heron LTS copy installed<br>
&gt; &gt; on my system. Yay me!<br>
&gt; &gt; Have any of you upgraded? What do you think? As for me, I think that<br>
&gt; &gt; it&#39;s mostly a stabler, more eye-candiesh version of Gutsy. They added a<br>
&gt; &gt; few features, in different programs, here and there; but most of the<br>
&gt; &gt; menus and stuff are the same. It&#39;s a better experience than Gutsy,<br>
&gt; though.<br>
&gt;<br>
&gt; I&#39;ve been running hardy since early beta on a test laptop, and I<br>
&gt; upgraded my desktop mac-mini from<br>
&gt; Gutsy to Hardy with zero hitches (but it&#39;s a plain vanilla machine<br>
&gt; with no tweaks).<br>
&gt;<br>
&gt; My laptop has been running Dapper since it was late beta, but I&#39;ve<br>
&gt; upgraded bits of it with very<br>
&gt; recent kde, hal, parts of gnome, latest firefox and thunderbird, and<br>
&gt; very hacked custom kernels with<br>
&gt; all sorts of jiggery-pokery..<br>
&gt;<br>
&gt; It was with *much* trepidation that I decided to try a basic &quot;as per<br>
&gt; the instructions&quot; upgrade from<br>
&gt; 6.06 to 8.04. Except for an issue with initramfs-tools (had to work<br>
&gt; around the installed kernel<br>
&gt; having a &#39;-&#39; local prefix) and some issues with the dpkg-divert&#39;s I<br>
&gt; used for firefox and thunderbird<br>
&gt; it was as smooth as a babys bottom. I&#39;m super impressed.. No really!<br>
&gt;<br>
&gt; I&#39;ve got issues with a load of kde programs being installed and not<br>
&gt; having icons in the menus, but<br>
&gt; then I built kde 3.5 from experimental deb source ages ago to upgrade<br>
&gt; kpilot, so I&#39;m not really<br>
&gt; surprised. It all works and I&#39;ve lost no functionality. On the other<br>
&gt; hand it&#39;s freaking HUGE!!!!!<br>
&gt;<br>
&gt; My old dapper install breezed into a 5G / partition with plenty (and I<br>
&gt; mean over a gig) of room to<br>
&gt; spare. This beast sucks space like a Black hole!<br>
&gt;<br>
&gt; Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on<br>
&gt; /dev/sda5 4.6G 4.3G 85M 99% /<br>
&gt;<br>
&gt; I&#39;ve _got_ to figure out where I can trim some fat as I&#39;m not willing<br>
&gt; to compromise on my 5G / and<br>
&gt; 5G /home scheme (makes it far to easy to back up onto DVD as I never<br>
&gt; used to exceed 4.2G on either.<br>
&gt;<br>
&gt; Like I said, I&#39;ve been playing with it for a while on my test laptop,<br>
&gt; so I don&#39;t expect any<br>
&gt; surprises, but I&#39;m very impressed with the way the upgrade went.. very..<br>
&gt;<br>
&gt; I&#39;ve cc&#39;d this to Dubai-lug.. maybe we&#39;ll see some more people try out<br>
&gt; Ubuntu :)<br>
&gt;<br>
&gt; (Oh, forgot. The upgrade took 2 hrs + time to download 1G of .debs on<br>
&gt; a 1.2Ghz Pentium-M _slow_<br>
&gt; machine). Not too shabby. Took me another hour to work the bugs out<br>
&gt; (but they were caused due to my<br>
&gt; custom hacks and non-ubuntu way of doing some stuff)<br>
