[SOLVED] Problems with wifi after upgrade from Ubuntu 12.04 to 12.10
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 2, 2012
My wifi was working perfectly on Ubuntu 12.04, but after a Web upgrade to Ubuntu 12.10 the wifi to my Windows network takes ages to connect and after a while disconnects and requires a reboot to get it going again.
Is there a simple solution to this?
Upgrade from Ubuntu 8.04 to Lubuntu 10.04 ?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 14, 2011
I want to upgrade an old machine with 350 MB RAM running Ubuntu 8.04. My first attempt was to upgrade to Ubuntu 10.04 LTS. Initially it seemed fine, but then it hang at the splash screen.
Then I reinstalled 8.04, and tried to upgrade using "sudo add-apt-repository" but 8.04 doesn't know that yet.
Next attempt was to boot into the LiveCD of Lubuntu 10.04 and it hangs at a message about unknown UID.
Can somebody please tell me what I may be doing wrong?
“Reboot Failure” after upgrade from Ubuntu 8.04 LTS to 10.04 LTS
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 6, 2011
I upgraded from Ubuntu 8.04 LTS to 10.04 LTS on my 6 year old desktop PC. Following the upgrade the PC would not reboot: it displayed “Starting Up” twice and then the screen went blank. Attempting, via GRUB, to boot the older of the two available versions of Linux (2.6.24-29) resulted in a host of error messages, the foremost being the hard drive could not be found.
After many days experimenting with GRUB parameters (acpi=off, etc) with no success, I changed the monitor configuration from VGA to DVI. Presto, there was the Ubuntu login screen. It was there all along, I just couldn't see it! I'm guessing Ubuntu 8 supports VGA and Ubuntu 10 does not. Nevertheless, I love Ubuntu 10!
I'm posting this in case someone else has the same issue.

Upgrade from Ubuntu 12.04 to 12.10

I've been a contented Ubuntu user since installing Ubuntu 8.04 several years ago. I've regularly upgraded each time a distribution upgrade has become available. I've never had serious issues in the past. It's always been fairly straight-forward--until now. I recently upgraded from Ubuntu 12.04 to 12.10. Everything seemed to go fairly smoothly. As one of those troglodytic "classical" desktop users, my first move was to switch to the classic gnome desktop. The issues noted:
1) When I try to arrange the workspaces in a single row in the bottom right tray, both top and bottom trays are eliminated on workspaces 2, 3, and 4. Obviously without a tray, there is no workspace indicator after one arrives on workspace 2. One has to unplug power in order to shut down.
2) I've been unable to find anything resembling an "Update Manager" in Ubuntu 12.10. Don't know if its disappearance is one of the improvements or enhancements, but it makes me a bit nervous that I can'
I want to upgrade from Ubuntu 8.04 to 12.04

From what I've read, I think I need to upgrade from Ubuntu 8.04 to 10.04 and then to 12.04. The suggestion in Ubuntu User Magazine about upgrading from 8.04 to 10.04 is NOT
to use the accompanying DVD, rather to do the Upgrades via the Website. What will happen if I try that at this point? Will I be able to stop at 10.04 and from there use the 12.04 DVD to go from 10.04 to 12.04?
