|Ubuntu offers an upgrade|
|Upgrades can be a pain|
|Why Dapper? This is Feisty! Ask for the Gutsy CD, dang it!!|
Trying a dist-upgrade with apt-get gives the same results as Synaptic. Not surprising since Synaptic's smart upgrade seems to perform a dist-upgrade.
|Not the best option but... finally, somebody with some sense|
~$ sudo apt-get autoremove
~$ sudo apt-get upgrade
~$ sudo apt-get install linux-generic
For reasons unknown to me, I'm still on kernel 2.6.17 which really shouldn't be the case. This is just a guess, but I suspect the whole thing about needing the Dapper CD might be related to this. I installed the -generic kernel that we're supposed to be running, just in case.
