Dist Upgrade Complete

I am now running Hardy on my production laptop. This is typical, however I started a bit late with my unstable abuse that I enjoy for one reason or the other. I installed Dapper Flight 3 on this Laptop and have dist-upgraded ever since. So that was like March of ’06? Not to shabby. I have yet to do a fresh install on this laptop, and it runs as great as it did just over a year and a half ago. Impressive Kubuntu!

So just a quick howto on how I did my latest dist-upgrade from Gutsy to Hardy:

$ sudo vi /etc/apt/sources.list    # in vim do :%s/gutsy/hardy then press enter
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
$ sudo shutdown -r now

Doesn’t get any easier! Granted many people will tell you “NOOOOOOO!” when it comes to this way, but it has yet to fail me in over a year and a half. So, while I have Hardy running, it is time to attack some bugs and get to hacking!

Yes, I used VIM in this write-up, so don’t spam the comments with nano, pico, emacs, and gEdit spam! Reason for using VIM, everyone, well everyone who just installed Gutsy from a CD, has VIM installed ๐Ÿ™‚
