Upgrade to 12.10- after adding bumblebee

Asked by Inderjit Singh on 2013-01-22

Mine laptop is having Nvidia Optimus graphic card. I was unable to upgrade from 12.04 to 12.10. I added bumblebee as adviced by the action centre. Now when I am trying to upgrade I receive the message 'some third party entries in your source.list were disabled. You can re-enable them after the upgrade with the 'Software Properties' tools or your package manager'. Also please inform me how much data pack I need for upgrade and how much time it will take. Thanks.

It depends purely on install size. If you have added tonnes of applications then these will be upgraded and add to the time and data needed to upgrade. I use a very minimal Ubuntu and have fewer packages installed, my upgrades (should I choose to, I always clean install for fewer issues) will be less than most

Depends on Internet connection speed to retrieve the packets , and depends on how much programs you have installed and how much external repositories you have added.

Approximately the upgrade procedure lasts loner than a new installation (with updates included).
An Installation procedure with updated it will last usually 20-30 minutes , but my last attempt to upgrade from 12.04 to 12.10 took over 2:30 hours.

So consider to backup you personal data (documents , music , movies .. etc) and Install Ubuntu from scratch.

Thanks

I may not be able to install at one strech, i.e. there may be internet failure in between.Whether that will create any problem or I can upgrade bit by bit. Please inform .Thanks.

If Internet failure occurs , the the upgrade procedure will corrupt and I don't know if you can resume ...

I suggest a new installation from a live media of Ubuntu (DVD/USB) .. then you must run update-manager once , to updated all the packages..

Thanks
