Hi, I've Gutsy installed on my computer. I want to move to Linux Mint, but without the need to reinstall ALL the applications.
Since, Daryna is based on Gutsy repositories with some extra repositories of its own, I have a hunch that, if I update my sources.lst file and add the Daryna and Medibuntu repos in it, I will be able to migrate my system to Daryna. I think this should work, because the kernel and most of the applications will remain the same, except those from the upstream repo and the other Linux Mint repos. All I'll have to then is to update these packages from the Daryna repo and install the special Linux Mint packages like Mint Menu, Control Center, artwork, etc.
Anybody thought about it? Am I thinking in the right direction? Will it work or not; and if it will work what are all the Linux Mint special packages that should be installed and which packages of ubuntu should be removed to avoid duplication of functionality?
I think many Ubuntu users like myself will be thinking of migrating to Linux Mint but not ready to take the headache of install and setting up a system from scratch.
