You'd most likely lose all the Mint-specific stuff as only the parts which are in common with Ubuntu would be upgraded. Also, Mint and Ubuntu already have some differences. The upgrade maybe wouldn't finish cleanly and leave you with a crippled system. Even if it worked cleanly ... Mint would be gone, you'd most likely have a 100% Ubuntu "Gutsy" system afterwards. I personally wouldn't recommend this.paullinux wrote:since Mint 3.0 is based on ubuntu Feisty I wonder what would happen if I upgrade to ubuntu gutsy, starting with Mint 3.0.
exploder wrote:paullinux, scorp123 is absolutely right about this. Gutsy is extremely buggy right now, just have a look on the Ubuntu forum. Just wait for the next release of Linux Mint. There is not that much to gain anyways and gnome 2.20.0 only has a few cosmetic improvements.
Can't guess meta-package
Your system does not contain a ubuntu-desktop, kubuntu-desktop, xubuntu-desktop or edubuntu-desktop package and it was not possible to detect which version of Ubuntu you are running. Please install one of the packages above first using synaptic or apt-get before proceeding.
Says who??? It's buggy like hell. I spent the whole night (now *that* should tell you something ...) trying to figure things out ... Things that worked tip top in 7.04 but they now broke in 7.10 ... Thanks but no thanks. I suggest we wait a few weeks until the first patches start coming out .... !lucho115 wrote: OK, now gutsy is stable

What problems do you think would emerge?
Has anyone attempted this?
