  • Quick Update Guide from Ubuntu 8.04 LTS to 10.04 LTS

    Finally got an Update of my OX installation from 8.04 to 10.04 Ubuntu working.
    While on the progress and the weather outside sucks anyway, I also updated to newest OX 6.18

    1a. If apt-get complains about missing keys read

    apt-get install update-manager-core
    do-release-upgrade --proposed

    7. reboot your ubuntu and log into OX, if you run into a ajax 404 error, look here:
