Excellent news! Happy to see the .28 kernel. Is ext4 support compiled in? Given the drastic improvements I've seen on my desktop with the new fs, I'd be pleased to see it on the Z as well.

You should know that fresh installs are the way to go, though you probably could now if you find the repos. wink.gif

dpkg/apt is largely bullet-proof once set up right as long as the distro is fairly stable and you're not making massive changes to kernel and glib.

the only reason for a fresh install would be to get the updated kernel, but now we're all multi-boot that's not needed.

the only time it's gone a bit wrong for me was when debian changed from 2.4 to 2.6, a new gcc and glib. but then I did try to take a short-cut and I was a n00b!

I like having a clean system (it's good for freeing up disk space, too). Anyway, we all have backups of our important data and configs, so it should be just as easy, right? wink.gif

A fresh install is inevitable, since the architecture is changed from arm (used by Mojo) in armel (used by Canonical).
Keep in mind however that this is the "unstable" branch of Ubuntu. It's beta (although a good beta so far!)

I've tried to upgrade to jaunty from hasty (hardy handheld), managed to change the apt-get architecture by adding APT::Architecture "armel" to /etc/apt/apt.conf

i've found this repo: http://ports.ubuntu.com/dists/jaunty/ binary-armel available but i don't know how to make ubuntu see arm as armel to update the installed packages

I'll have to wait for the new rootfs rolleyes.gif
