Re: [EmiratesLoCo] Ref:Ubuntu 12.10

Regarding upgrades, I also have a question. How do they actually work? If they simply upgrade the packages and dependencies of the existing systems, how is the infrastructure changes done like those in low-level areas (low-level as in kernel, drivers, libraries, etc that the users do not directly interact with)? And simply upgrading the packages will result in ubuntu-desktop metapackage bringing back the default apps which the user may have removed.

Also, what happens to deprecated software, like the Unity 2D?

Please link me if there is any existing documentation on the subject.

+1 one to what Zulfiqar said.
 
What I do is to have /home in a seperate partition and then I rather do fresh installs than upgrades.  I have however heard a lot of success stories upgrading and it is the easiest way to continue using your system as you don't have to reconfigure everything :)
 
 
BTW, from which version are up upgrading?

HI,

The downloaded files are all located under /var/cache/apt/archives. If the process is aborted, the process will only download the remaining files.

The easiest way to overcome this would be to download the ISO burn it on a DVD and run the installation. Choose the option to upgrade and make sure you use the same username.

Hi 
Glad to know that Ubuntu 12.10 is working fine.fortunately or unfortunately,I tried the upgrade last week,but due to my network problems,the upgrade got aborted.Maybe i will try it after a while.

The message showed that 'the program is aborted due to the network problems'.It also mentioned that the downloaded files during the upgrade process will be there,but that was  not the case.the second time i had put it for the upgrade option,the whole process started all over again.

My question:
If all the downloaded files are there ,where will it b located.
OR
once the process is aborted ,will all that is downloaded will also b aborted?


Thanks

Plessy
