Ubuntu to Linux Mint.

Postby Chuckie on Tue May 12, 2009 9:05 pm

I have Ubuntu 9.04 installed on my HD at the moment, i have used Linux Mint before and to be honest it is my distro of choice.

My question is while i have Ubuntu installed can i upgrade from Ubuntu to Linux Mint, what i mean is i don't want to uninstall Ubuntu, i want to upgrade from Ubuntu to Linux Mint 7, is that possible or would i have to fresh install Linux Mint on a formatted partition.

Thanks.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

I know it is not complete Helena. I would like your suggestions on this one.
