What problems do you think would emerge?
Has anyone attempted this?
Problems?, yes & no. I did the upgrade on my laptop. It demands that you uninstall the Mint part of the OS. This was after downloading everything, so I had to redownload after uninstalling the Mint part. It says you have to reinstall the Mint part after installation, but it did that it itself. It also said you have to reactivate the restricted drivers, but it did that itself also. The installation on the laptop worked out in the end.
When I attempted the install on the desktop it downloads the upgrade, but when it attempts to install an error message comes up & the install fails. This is the error message:
Failed to fetch http://medibuntu.sos-sts.com/r...es.gz
What does that mean?
