    Is there a way to upgrade using a CD? The machine running 6.10 server is behind a dialup connection so upgrading through apt is not an option – however at work I can easily download a 7.04 server torrent and create a CD.

    I tried to do just that, and managed to completely hose my machine. What I tried was to download the 7.04 alternate CD, then apt-cdrom, and run the update from there. Things seemed to work fine for a while, but ultimately the system completely froze. I had to wipe the drive and re-install (maybe there was a better solution?).
    I should state that the 6.10 system I started with had both Ubuntu and KUbuntu on it (I was using superkaramba). So it’s very possible that a straight Ubuntu install might have upgraded easier.

    I have different experience compared to Cybertoast’s. Just upgraded two servers, everything went as expected.

    This screwed up my ubuntu install too. After 1 1/2 years of no reboot I thought I better upgrade, followed this tutorial and it never loaded again 🙁 (yes I did a reboot before the upgrade)
