Upgrade to Ubuntu Wily

Filed under: Linux — Tags: — Alfred Yang @ 11:07

Ubuntu Wily is released. I have to admit that I should not upgrade so early…

The whole upgrade process is “smooth”:

  1. disable zram_tmp & zram_swap service, in case they cause something;
  2. remove 3rd party repo list; yes, the upgrade process will do it for you, but I don’t like the comments it adds;
  3. remove my /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/01ubuntu-prefer, because I also add Wily repo when I’m using Vivid, and I want to prefer Vivid packages of coz; firstly I forget, so the upgrade always crash;

So, let’s see problems:

  1. Oops, my kernel is still 3.19.0.26; see this bug;
  2. There is no default route after I connect my ppp connection with “pon myconnection”, even the config is ok under Vivid; I have to add a script in /etc/ppp/ip-up.d/ to add it.
  3. Ahhh, finally this my pain – Thinkpad T440p’s clickpad, I hate it. I’m using this patched driver to gain middle button scroll. So now there is no ppa package for Wily yet. I have to download Vivid original source, this patched driver source, and Wily’s package source, do a 3-way merge, build it by myself – take a note, use “dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot -uc -b” to build .deb files.
