Ubuntu Linux 8.10 release candidate beta version has been released and available for download from mirrors. The final stable version will be released on October 30th, 2008. But, if you would like to test latest version try out Intrepid Ibex RC beta version.

Upgrading from Ubuntu 8.04 To 8.10 beta

To upgrade from Ubuntu 8.04, press Alt+F2 and type in "update-manager -d" (without the quotes) into the command box. Update Manager should open up and tell you: New distribution release '8.10' is available.

Doesn’t work for me… If I do it this way it can’t find that program. And starting update manager from the menu doesn’t find the upgrade. :-(

Brian,

Try again, there is a small bug and you need to run update-manager -d twice.

It’s terrible for me after upgrading from 8.04.

FireFox stops working, apache and subversion does not work. I could not log-in normal Gnome session, it accepts FailSafe.

Sounds like the file owners/permissions got changed. You’ll need to log in using the emergency shell and fix this.
