I thought you couldn't upgrade dapper to feisty directly? Did you just change te repositories and upgrade?
I realize I"m a little off topic, but tis would be useful info.
Very easy upgrade, if you think ahead.
I have the following partitions
/ on hda1 at about 8GB
swap about 2GB
/home on hda6 Rest of disk
all the client applications I install so data sits in home. Thunderbird for example.
To upgrade I stuck the 7.04 DVD in the drive booted, clicked install, reformatted hda1
Let Ubuntu do its stuff
used the same user name and password for the account
rebooted and selected the same apps I had in the old version (I could have automated but didn't)
35 Mins from start to finish I had my new OS, new versions of Apps (inc google earth), all my user data, profile date, shortcuts, email, desktop settings and just about everything setup form my old profile.
Only thing I needed to do was reinstall my printer driver as I did have to hack 6.04 (Samsung laser) oh and I did need to stop grinning as Scorched earth 3d worked in all its glory.
After that I re-added some non standard repository strings for Skype and Cinelerra video suite and bobs you're uncle.
Considering getting some of the apps I use used to take weeks of hacking under some distro's I love Ubuntu's ease of use and most of al lits clear documentation. Try googling Ubuntu howto QEMU and in 30 mins or so you can have another OS booting in its own virtual machine. All with clear step by step documentation and workrounds.
