Default Upgrading Ubuntu 6.06 (Dapper) to 6.10 (Edgy)

Can I upgrade an installed version of Ubuntu Dapper (6.06 LTS) to Edgy (6.10) without downloading the new CD and having to install over my current installation (and therefore deleting my files)?

Also, I've heard its possible to install Kubuntu on top of an existing Ubuntu install...how?

Applications > Accessories > Terminal > gksu “update-manager -c”

If you want to install KDE in Ubuntu you can probably just apt-get all of the packages. I've never done it before, though. You might need to add some repos or something.

ALT+F2 -> gksu update-manager -c

To install KDE just apt-get install kde.

I did an upgrade from 6.06 LTS to 6.10. It did work for the most part, but somethings acted a bit screwy. I did have a heavily customized build of Dapper though... lots of modifications. I eventually just did a fresh install of Edgy.

I wrote a file to expedite the installing of codecs an programs that are commonly used. It is an attachment to this post. I have not used it yet, but it should work.

But.. I did find a good list of repositories...
http://3v1n0.tuxfamily.org/blog/list...kubuntu-linux/
Use at your own risk...

You can use this list by install this:
http://3v1n0.tuxfamily.org/pool/edgy...edgy1_i386.deb
or by doing it manually from the website.

OR try my new super long automated command


wget http://3v1n0.tuxfamily.org/pool/edgy...edgy1_i386.deb && sudo dpkg -i 3v1n0-sources-list_0.3-3v1ubuntu0edgy1_i386.deb && sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade && sudo aptitude install rar unrar msttcorefonts gsfonts-x11 bum gnomebaker libxine-extracodecs mozilla-mplayer mplayer w32codecs libdvdread3 libdvdcss2 gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg gstreamer0.10-gl gstreamer0.10-plugins-base gstreamer0.10-plugins-good gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad-multiverse gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly-multiverse flashplugin-nonfree sun-java5-jre sun-java5-plugin nvidia-glx nvidia-kernel-common gftp && sudo /usr/share/doc/libdvdread3/install-css.sh && gconftool-2 -t str --set /apps/metacity/global_keybindings/run_command_9 "<Control><Alt>Delete" && gconftool-2 -t str --set /apps/metacity/keybinding_commands/command_9 "gnome-system-monitor" && killall gnome-panel && rm 3v1n0-sources-list_0.3-3v1ubuntu0edgy1_i386.deb && clear && echo Done. && echo Please restart your computer.

What are they for? I have the bottom one so I can apt-get Flash 9, but what is the Pengiun Liberation Front and what is the top one for? If you didn't intend to tell us what they are for, you shouldn't have included them in your instructions.
