Going Gutsy

I upgraded to Gutsy Gibson 7.10-pre version of Ubuntu last night on my main laptop. Upgrade started at 2 AM and finished at 4:30 AM (I am still sleepy). I wish there was a cleaner way to upgrade to newer versions of Ubuntu. You have to edit files and after a dist-upgrade you still have to do a manual kernel upgrade to 2.6.22. Other than that, Gutsy has a few bugs fixed, and so far I found 3 new ones (bug reports filed).

BTW, this one is a really nice utility, written by an Ubuntu developer: a mono Bluetooth headset connection utility. Too bad that there is a bug in the Gnome’s sound prefs panel and no Bluetooth audio devices are shown there and so they can’t be selected… When (and if) this bug is fixed, A2DP support is added to the utility, and Rhythmbox/Banshee add AVRCP support, my Bluetooth life under Linux will be complete.

Yes, it was insufficient. It would not upgrade to Gutsy.

Just curious, why not just do an “update-manager -c -d”? Insufficient?

As I said, there were some manual updates that needed to be done, reboots etc.

Very interesting, I must say I can’t wait for Gutsy. I’ll wait until they start getting Xorg 7.3 in there.
