Why would you do that if everything works to your satisfaction?  
Tinkering for it's own sake?  I say if it works, then do something 
useful with it and only upgrade when needed . . .

Of course, that's just me:

Installing WIcd Using Ubuntu CD After NM Quit

Just installed karmic on an old Dell Dimensions XPS T450.  Everything OK
until I upgraded and installed kubuntu-desktop.  Called for a reboot and
after rebooting completed NM wifi connection quit working. Tried to
reconfigure NM again but no luck. Attempted to install wicd but that
didn't work without a network. Ticked to use the cd/dvd to install in
software sources and reloaded but only get failure to connect on the
Ubuntu main mirror. Tried installing wicd from the Karmic CD recovery
mode using a root shell on the installed partition and even on the CD
environment or whatever it's called but no luck.  Aptitude command not
recognized maybe should have used dpkg or gdebi but didn't think of it
at the time. The crick in my neck says I've been fighting to get wicd
installed for about 3 hours.  Would someone please tell me how to
install a package using the Karmic alt CD of from a booted up Karmic
using the alt CD with SS ticked to use the CD. Maybe need both for the
benefit of new users and old ones like me who still has a lot to
learn-:o) Many thanks,

problem with setting up Xen networking

Hi peeps,

I've been trying to set up bridged networking with Xen, and I've been 
working so many hours on it that I need a frash pair of eyes. It's 
probably a minor detail... but I can't find it.
The problem is that I have no network connection between Dom0 and DomU, 
for example I can't ping between them. No iptables are used. It's 
probably something with the bridge.

In Dom0:

/etc/modules:
loop
dummy

/etc/network/interfaces:
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

allow-hotplug eth0
iface eth0 inet dhcp

auto dummy0
iface dummy0 inet static
         address 192.168.2.1
         broadcast 192.168.2.255
         netmask 255.255.255.0

/etc/xen/xend-config.sxp:
(network-script network-bridge)

It most certainly does not. There is no reason why it would.

Use the laptops ethernet port to get online, then install applications?
Can you pull an ip via the ethernet port at all?

this is an educated guess.... ive never had to install from the cdrom 
other than the first install........it appears you may still have the 
sources ticked for "download from the internet" above the cdrom option. 
  if thats true, try unchecking those sources and anything that has to 
do with the net first before trying to use the cdrom source.  post back 
with your findings.

It's not a laptop but a desktop with wifi so I don't have to string
cable. Tried NM setup several times before it was removed by trying to
install wicd and couldn't get it to connect again at all.
