Is it possible to "upgrade" an existing Ubuntu installation into an
Ubuntu Studio installation utilizing a version of Ubuntu Studio that is
on a DVD (Ubuntu-Studio 8.04.1 i386) ?
I have tried.
When the DVD is loaded into the DVD drive, dvdrecorder opens a file
browser with the following folders:
ubuntu(which looks like a shortcut...there is a curved arrow coming off it)
An icon for Software Updates shows in the upper panel. When that is
clicked, there is a window which states: "Cannot install all available
updates"...Some updates require the removal of further software. Use the
function "Mark All Upgrades" of the package manager "Synaptic" or run
"sudo apt-get dist-upgrade" in a terminal to update your system completely.
Below this is a list of all the updates that will be skipped.
Closing this reveals a Software Update window: "You can install 290
updates", clicking OK brings up Downloading package files which is then
covered by an Information window that says:
"Please insert the disk labeled: Ubuntu-Studio 8.04.1_Hardy Heron_ -
Release i386 (20080701) in drive /cdrom/"
Clicking OK justs brings up another one, etc.
Placing the DVD in the cdrom drive doesn't read (afaik), and placing it
in the dvdburner is likewise.
This computer is currently not able to access the Internet so that is
why I'm trying this install via disk.
