Even though I never upgrade right after a release of a new distribution, I’ve decided to upgrade my existing Feisty Fawn Ubuntu system. Everything seemed well until my computer restarted. From the restart, I got a Grub error, so had to boot from a Grub Super disk and manually install a new boot loader over the corrupt Grub that installed with Ubuntu. After a restart, and boot into the new 2.6.20 kernel that is used with Gusty, nothing happened. No prompt, No log-in screen. The only way to accessed the newly installed Gusty Gibbon was through booting into an older kernel.
So I figured I must have done something wrong during the upgrade process. So I downloaded the iso image. To my surprised I have the same issue. This time the only way to accessed the system is though the rescue mode option!
Installing Gusty on my laptop was just a waste of time. I’m not going to bother upgrading my desktop.
(As of the time of this writing, I’m installing OpenSuSE 10.3 on my laptop)
