Re: [kubuntu-kde3.5-users] Re: [kubuntu-kde3.5-announce] Jaunty Jackalope 9.04 with KDE3.5 FINAL now available for download!

Let me try it the correct way and see.  I always upgrade by changing the
sources.list file to point at Jaunty and then do an apt-get dist-upgrade,
but that is not recommended at all by the (K)ubuntu folks.  I may have to
patch the upgrade tool and push that update out to the Intrepid systems
before an easy upgrade path to Jaunty is available.

I would not recommend removing KDE3.5 and then reinstalling it.  It has a
nasty habit of resetting certain things when you do that (due to the
removal of kubuntu-default-settings-kde3 while a user is logged in), such
as any Amarok playlists you might have.

I hope to have something available in the next couple of days.

Sorry about the delay!
