Upgrading from 10.04 to 16.04
« on: July 28, 2017, 09:04:58 pm »
Hi all,

after a long time, i'm back and would like to upgrade from 10.04 to 16.04.

Is there a tool where i can preserve the configurations, like phone lines, extensions, etc, or do i need to install from scratch and configure all again?

With best regards,

Paulo

you could try upgrading to 14.04 by changing the package repositories to trusty in /etc/apt/sources.list, doing an apt-get update and apt-get dist-upgrade.

I would suggest backing up the system disk, before doing this.

16.04 is still being debugged, so it shouldn't be used, at present.

To add to what Tschak said: Phenigma had good success moving from system to the next by using the regular LinuxMCE Backup and Restore which is available from the web admin.

Thanks and based on the answer, i downloded the dvd image of 14.04.

It boots, splash screen, i choose hybrid install, and runs but does nothing.

Any hint for 14.04?

BR.

The preferred way of installing LinuxMCE these days is:

* Install regular (*)Ubuntu 1404 Desktop (32 or 64)
* Run netinstall.

Enjoy :-)

Thank you Posde. I thought only 32 bit would work. Ok, 64 bits prefered :)

Netinstall = wget mce-install.sh ?

Thanks!
