I don't know. At the moment the dist-upgrade caused more important
building lots :(. I could sent several requests to this list ;), such
as GTK2 fonts became XXS.

>And use a totally different bootmanager:

The problem is, that I don't want to use GRUB from my Ubuntu install.
There was no bootloader installed, just the fine do-release-upgrade
enforced installing GRUB.

What ever bootloader I use, how can I prevent the Ubuntu install from
overwriting an existing bootloader next time I run do-release-upgrade?
