And That Is Why You Have Backups

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.
