Upgrading Ubuntu to 8.04 (Hardy Heron). Ugh.

Some minor problems:

  • /etc/default/locale has been deleted (wtf?). Needed to be recreated.
  • Both /etc/timezone and /etc/localtime have been deleted. Needed to recreate the links.
  • /etc/updatedb.conf has been deleted. Needed to be copied from another machine.

and one major one:

  • klogd now takes 5 minutes to start, which means I have to wait 5 minutes after each reboot to use the machine. Adding -x switch in the init.d script solved the problem. What was the root cause? No idea. There are only hints.

Apparently there is some reasoning behind not upgrading your linux policy.
