Hardy Upgrade

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

I found sometime to upgrade to Hardy on my home laptop yesterday. I had two different partitions of 4GB each running two versions of Ubuntu and I wanted to do away with it since, over a period of time I run out of space on the root partition. So I moved /home to the end of the disk, deleted all other partitions and created a 7GB one for root. The whole process took almost 4 hours thanks to 250MB odd updates.

Steps done after upgrading to Hardy:

  • Fix /home partition.
    rm -rf /home/balajin
    sudo vol_id -u /dev/sda5

    Add to /etc/fstab
    # /dev/sda5
    UUID=deb73237-6b76-4bb3-ab1a-cf335e034315 /home reiserfs defaults 0 1

  • Add user narayanant and add to corresponding groups.

  • Run Update manager to sync with latest packages

  • Install courier-imap, fetchmail, procmail, msmtp, postfix.

  • Restore configurations for postfix, courier-imap and crontab.

  • Install vlc, mplayer, mozilla-mplayer, codecs, vim, emacs, thunderbird, xchat
