I need people to test.

These tests are required:
- Please try running the upgrade script on Core. It should work. I have tested it several times till now ......
- Upgrade a Media Director. Has never been tested, but there should be a good change that it will work.

Please report back all issues ...

Thanks

Is there a direct link to the script that I can just wget it? without having to fire up a browser and copy/paste it?

thanks,

thx :)
Tested this on a 10.04 final VM, worked without intervention and orbiter appeared on 12.04.2. :D
When you ask about upgrading an MD - do you want the script run on the MD? or rebuild the image under webadmin of the upgraded core?

first try the upgrade script on the MD and report results.

after that see what happens using the rebuild button.

FYI: I tried it today on a clone of my 10.04 dev VM. First i apt-get update / upgrad'ed my 10.04 core and then i run the script.

It stopped somewhere complaining that it could not find the package mozilla-mplayer.

Thanks for testing! ....

coley, i'm glad it worked!
I think u need to run the script on each md as well. I was told on IRC  ???

posde, isn't a rebuild the thing we wanted to avoid?

Foxi352, mozilla-mplayer wasn't a problem to me at all, i'll try to reproduce the problem. Anything special except update/upgrade?

Upgrade of the MD not so successful, log here http://paste.ubuntu.com/5674981/
I'm left with an MD attempting to start KDE desktop and failing.

it is a test for another part of the 1204 equation.

Ok so this is strange. I had the problem twice and as i am working on a VM i just always reverted to the latest snapshot.
Because i wanted to document it for you i turned on logging in putty into a file and relaunched setup after again reverting to that same snapshot.

And for whatever reason, probably due to Murphy, it went through.

But after a reboot i am not in AVWIZARD but i have the graphical login manager. After logging in i have an error popup "Failed to load session 'ubuntu'" with only one button to choose which is labeled "Log Out". And it does exactly this. Once i click it i am back in graphical login.

One special thing is that in /etc/pluto.conf i had set AutostartMedia=0 to only start CORE but no Orbiter / MD and whatsoever since this is a dev machine on an ESXi server where i only connect via SSH for development. But my private production core for example has the same settings as it sits in a server room in the cellar, and i don't need an Orbiter.

I guess there are other peoples out there running a headless core, so this should be taken into account ?

But my system is 12.04.2 LTS now. Thanks for this.

I still have all my snapshots, so i can do another test for you at any time.

Foxi352,

i'll find a way to check if the install is headless and adjust the settings depending on that.
Thanks for testing.

Btw, howto setup a MD when Core is running on the same Machine/VM?
