Is there a way to upgrade from Hardy Heron to Intrepid Ibex using
the dell repositories? The update manager and apt-get shows no normal
release in the offering. I would like to upgrade to see how Intrepid
performs on the mini. I have tried doing a fresh install with a live
CD and also the one from Dell Linux desktops, but they had some
problems. Hardy Heron from Dell Linux desktops actually behaved much
better than the factory version, but it had no sound, which is something I need on the mini in order to use it for my intended purposes.
know there is a problem with the update manager on my machine. I tried
reinstalling with the factory recovery DVD, but the problem with it
still persisted. At least, though, I was able to upgrade to 8.04.2 in
I really do like the mini-9, it is a good little
computer, very portable and easy to use. Using Hardy on it forever is
still far better than windows. I have been using Ubuntu for two years.
