Upgrading from Feisty --> Mint 3.0

Postby Arv3n » 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.

Thanks,
Arv3n

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.

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.
