upgrade zorin 5.2 from Natty to Oneiric

upgrade zorin 5.2 from Natty to Oneiric

Postby NewZorinUser » Sun Apr 08, 2012 10:39 am

zorin 5.2 is based on ubuntu natty, and it's very easy to upgrade to ubuntu oneiric.
the benefits are that oneiric gives support until april 2013.

upgrading is very easy and self explaning, however, bear in mind that the downloads are about 1Gb in size, and the upgrade will take more than 1 hour

this is what i have done so far:
- backup all your important data
- create a oneiric sources.list from here: http://repogen.simplylinux.ch/ , copy the output to a file and save it on a safe place.
maybe you have to replace the sources.list in /etc/apt into this one after the upgrade
perform the following actions:

Upgrade from 11.04 to 11.10

Network Upgrade for Ubuntu Desktops (Recommended)

You can easily upgrade over the network with the following procedure.

Open the Update Manager application from the System → Administration menu.

In Update Manager, click the Settings... button, and enter your password to start the Software Sources application.

Select the sub menu Updates from the Software Sources application.

Check the "Release upgrade - Show new distribution releases" drop down to make sure "Normal releases" is selected, and change it if otherwise.
Close the Software Sources application and return to Update Manager.

In Update Manager, click the Check button to check for new updates.

If there are any updates to install, use the Install Updates button to install them, and press Check again after that is complete.
A message will appear informing you of the availability of the new release.

Click Upgrade.
Follow the on-screen instructions.

Thank you for the above. I just have 2 questions.

i)After the upgrade do you still have zorin or all has changed to ubuntu 11.10?

ii)Why not wait for Zorin 6 which will be based on ubuntu 12.04 ???
Zorin 9 - Ultimate Edition 64bit
Intel Core2 Duo CPU T5550 1.83GHz ‖ RAM 3008 MiB ‖ Acer Aspire 5920G
Mobility Radeon HD 3470 [1002:95c4] {radeon}
Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG [Golan] Network Connection [8086:4222] (rev 02)

2- yes, i can wait, but i like to experiment.

nevertheless , this upgrade is very easy and safe

Hi,

as nice as it sounds, you are forgetting one major point in this excercise, Oneric is based on Gnome 3 and Zorin 5 on Gnome 2, they are not compatible with one another in more than one way!!.

I do not recommend this to other forum members, please wait for the next version of Zorin which is based on Gnome 3.

Hi,

you said you had no issues but your post above tells us otherwise!!.

I would not recommend updating using the method you stated as it may break the system entirely!!. I hope you suffer no problems!!.
