Last week, my laptop started acting funny. Not that unusual since I run Ubuntu
on my laptop
. It's not one of the super computers
all my buddies
have, but it does let me get the job done
So last week when things finally got to a tipping point, I decided to try an upgrade to the latest Ubuntu release. Needless to say, it didn't go as planned. With a planned trip coming up, I needed to get things back in order quickly. I made sure I had a current backup of my /home directory, and did a brand new install. Things went mostly well (remember this is a laptop) and within a day I was back up and going.
For my own reference later, these are the things I had to do to get Ubuntu working on my Averatec.
