Upgrade Script Netrunner 17 -> Ubuntu Xenial (16.04 LTS) base

Posted on Posted in Horizon, Updates

These instructions upgrade Netrunner 17 to the Ubuntu Xenial 16.04 LTS base.

Please use at your own risk and make sure to make a backup of your personal data first before attempting the upgrade.
On a btrfs partition it is highly recommend to create a snapshot of your current filesystem state. You can do so with the command

    sudo btrfs subvolume snapshot / /@_snapshot

To perform the upgrade, open a terminal (yakuake or konsole) and type the following commands:

      wget http://pub.netrunner-os.com/upgrade-17_to_xenial.sh

      chmod a+xr upgrade-17_to_xenial.sh

      sudo ./upgrade-17_to_xenial.sh 2>&1 | tee upgrade.log

During the upgrade, you’ll see a lot of information appear in the terminal and you might see a few warnings/errors. As long as they don’t halt the upgrade, you can ignore them.
If you get asked about restarting services accept it.

The upgrade may take a while (up to 1:30 hours, depending on your machine and you Internet connection), so be prepared for that.

After that you will have a Netrunner 17 running on the Ubuntu Xenial LTS base. Be aware that some packages from Maui 1 will be pulled so the name might appear in some locations.
