Upgrading to Edgy Eft (Ubuntu 6.10)

Ubuntu LogoRight now rain my main linux machine at home is busy downloading the packages to complete the upgrade to Ubuntu 6.10 – Edgy Eft. It was pretty easy todo just dropped to the command line (well gnome-terminal) and ran ‘sudo update-manager -c -d’ typed in my root password and let it start downloading. I know this is going to take awhile, according to the little time estimate about 5 hours on my 384k ADSL line.

Upgrade to Edgy Eft So while I’m waiting for it to finish downloading I’m busy reading up about some of the cool new stuff in Edgy Eft and trying to decide what I’m going to tweak first. I think I’ll start with getting AIGLX + Compiz working, also want to see what kind of a difference upstart makes to startup times and then I think I’ll kinda wing-it and see what looks cool. Looks like I’ll be spending plenty of time on the Ubuntu Forums.

Release Notes for Ubuntu Edgy Eft, so you can see what’s new and cool.
