Couple of weeks back I was getting to the edge of upgrading my Ubuntu Desktop from Dapper Drake to Edge Eft. Upgrading has been a very easy process in Ubuntu as last time too I upgraded from Breezy Badger to Dapper Drake without any problems. With that in mind I started to upgrade it on my notebook on that day itself but didn't get a chance to make a post on how things went. In order to upgrade I ran this command.

gksu "update-manager -c -d"

It opened up the update manager with the message that Ubuntu 6.10 is available for upgrade. There was about 1GB to be downloaded so I left it to upgrade and went to sleep. By next day morning I upgraded to edgy. It was not up to the expectations but there was more problems when I realized that my wireless card has stopped working. It was working fine under Breezy and Dapper. Over the last couple of weeks I have been going through the forums and have found out lot of people have come across lot of problems trying to upgrade from Dapper to Edgy. Wireless issues have been a common thing. Currently I'm settled with my Ethernet card though have to sort out the wireless issue. I even played around with ndiswrapper but have few issues with it. I might have to install edgy freshly if I'm unable to fix it.
