Upgrading from Feisty --> Mint 3.0

Postby Arv3n on Tue Jun 05, 2007 8:53 pm

I think I remember seeing a tutorial on how to upgrade from Ubuntu to Linux Mint. Well, how would I do this running Feisty? I want to upgrade to the newest Linux Mint.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

You could add the Mint repositories and install applications from them, but it will not be MInt and I suppose not all can be installed. There are also apps removed from Feisty...
If you do it right you'll end up with Feisty with some MInt applications - if you do it wrong you could end up with a bloated system.
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it

Feisty doesn't have what's required to work with the cassandra repo, so if you add the cassandra repo to feisty make sure to also add the bianca one.
