Upgrade Ubuntu 8.04 to 8.10
When upgrading to Ubuntu 8.10 from 8.04 apart from the usual considerations I stumbled across these things:
/etc/update-manager/release-upgrades. This allows the update-amanger to consider the next "normal" 8.10 release after the 8.04 long term support release.
- Set dash as default shell. Point
apt-get install dash; dpkg-reconfigure dash. Some package installation scripts rely on
/bin/shbeing dash and not bash.
- Openvpn now has a mandatory argument
script-security. Without a proper setting externals cripts will not be executed and your private tunnels may not come up.
do-release-upgrade went very smooth afterwards.
