Upgrade to 0710 Linuxmce options:

Option 1. Installation using the 0710 Linuxmce DVD

Installation using the 0710 Linuxmce DVD, with keep settings option (also works if you want to switch to amd64 version) Restart the pc and insert and boot the 0710 Linuxmce DVD.

You'll be asked if you want to keep the settings from previous installation (choose "y" or "n"). After the installation is finished you'll need to remove the DVD and press enter to reboot. This type of upgrade will install 0710 packages but keeping the previous devices. This type of upgrade can be made with single layer DVD, doesn't require the Double Layer DVD. Of course, it works with Double Layer too.

Option 2. Download the upgrade helper application

Download the upgrade helper application and choose to install from web or from DVD, if you have the Double Layer 0710 Linuxmce DVD.

When deciding to go with the upgrade go to KDE Desktop, start a web browser and download this .deb file gutsy-upgrade-scripts_0.1.0-2_i386.deb.

Install the .deb file on your machine


Press enter to finish the installation


Start "Upgrade to 0710" app


Starting this app will open a console and will show 2 options:


1. install 0710 packages from Double Layer DVD

Press 1 and then enter to start the upgrade

Wait a while until you get this message:


You have to manually reboot the machine to apply the changes.

2. install 0710 packages from web

Press 2 to start the download of 0710 packages

When the process finishes you'll get a message on Orbiter to manually reboot the machine to apply the 0710 packages

Anytime you want to leave the upgrade app you can close the console. To check the status of the upgrade you can start the app again.
