Ubuntu Feisty Fawn

January 27, 2007 By: webmaster Category: Technology, Ubuntu

So you want to be a hero. Well, at least you want to be able to run the latest and greatest Ubuntu version. Perhaps you're a Gentoo convert like me, who miss being able to update your system at least four times a day. Just to get that fix. It's like going 10 minutes without getting an email, you send one to yourself just to see if the system is working...

Ubuntu Feisty Fawn 

Aaaanyway, there is really nothing to it. Edit your /etc/apt/sources.list and change all references to edgy to feisty. I.e. replace edgy with feisty throughout the file. Then run apt-get update and  update-manager -c, both as root. You may have to say yes to one or two "are you sure you're willing to destroy your system"-questions, but what the hey. After that, you'll be the proud owner of a bleeding Ubuntu system and you'll be able to do an apt-get update as often as you wish and more or less be guaranteed to get an update every time. Upgrade bliss.
