Being new to ubuntu, and as the release of dapper looms, I am wondering how updating will work. <br><br>If I run an update utility on 6-1-6, will it upgrade to dapper? I wouldn't really expect that, but I'm kinda unsure as to how I am supposed to upgrade.
<br><br>Will I have to download the install disk and upgrade with that?<br><br>~David<br><br><div><span class="gmail_quote">On 5/16/06, <b class="gmail_sendername">Lx Rudis</b> <<a href="mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org">

<br><br>yuck. i just had to deal with that on another machine<br>here. it's like the gift that keeps on giving. :P<br><br>><br>> > By this I mean OS updates as a fully automatic,<br>> you-never-see-it<br>> > background feature,
<br><br>you're much braver than me. :)<br><br>...but most of the time all i'm doing is saying 'yeah,<br>go ahead and install that', so i understand where<br>you're coming from, desktop computing-wise.<br><br>on the other hand, i often monkey around with weird
<br>peripherals and apps that can get finicky about<br>drivers, app conflicts, version conflicts etc. under<br>those circumstances, i really can't let my machine<br>enter an unknown state - so much can go wrong, and if<br>
i haven't left a trail of crumbs behind me i can lose<br>a lot of manhours getting back to a known state where<br>all the tools and peripherals were working correctly.<br><br><br><br>x<br><br><br><br>_______________________________________________
