Just follow on screen instructions. Refer upgrading from Ubuntu 7.04 to 7.10 for more information.

I'm just going to open full up 2mbps pipe for my desktop so it can pull all the upgrades quickly.

I forced upgrade by passing -d option … :) also when it will be released tomorrow you may need to wait for a little more time as their server comes under load due to heavy demand.

I upgraded with the -d option about a week ago, and have been taking updates as they come out.

I have a new Dell XPS410, came pre-loaded with 7.04 and everything worked fine.

After the upgrade the 2 issues I have are that my sound card is no longer detected. I have tried the many solutions posted online to to avail.

The other thing I have noticed is a drastic drop in the response of the system. Applications are taking an extraordinary time to launch.

I may reload the pc completely after I download the official release today.

I also did -d upgrade few days back. Everything worked fine except my wireless card was dropping packets. So I blacklisted rt61pci driver and compiled and install latest driver from official site. However I’ve not noticed any a drastic drop in the response of the system (hell I’ve quad core CPU and load is always below .12).

There seems to be a bug in the update-manager.
Applying the patch worked.
