|Synaptic fails to detect the Hardy CD despite the fact it _is_ present|
|Update Manager can't resolve something; just wish it'd give me a little more info|
Hardy Heron is the 2nd Ubuntu LTS release and is currently still supported on the server. That means the packages are still available for download despite the desktop no longer getting support.
|Online upgrade with Update Manager|
Updating online with Update Manager worked but not without it's own little niggles. It defaults to the -386 kernel instead of -generic for one. For some reason the -386 kernel just stops during boot. Manually selecting the latest installed -generic kernel works fine though.
|System Monitor looking weird. Seems to be just a display glitch though|
Just to be on the safe side, I attempt to shake off some outdated packages from terminal.
~$ sudo apt-get purge ubuntu-desktop
~$ sudo apt-get autoremove
~$ sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop
That seems to shake off a few packages, but doesn't fix System Monitor. It's still got the display bug. To be extra safe, I used Synaptic to remove all kernels except the current -generic build, and upgraded lvm2 which somehow wasn't upgraded. From the looks of things, Update Manager's cleanup step doesn't clean up nearly as thoroughly as I thought. There's a lot of obsolete packages left untouched.
