… and it struck really bad. Last night I clicked “Upgrade distro” button on the update manager to upgrade from 10.04 to 10.10. In the morning all I saw was a kernel panic. This has been my 3rd consecutive unsuccessful upgrade. Ofcourse fixing it was dead simple – re-installed the system, reused /home and things were fine. That’s it, I am not trusting an auto upgrade anymore. A clean slate is what I will trust from now on.
