Upgrading to Ubuntu Breezy

I resisted for as long as possible, but I finally upgraded to Ubuntu Breezy.
It was quite easy in the end. The upgrade notes and this page were of some help of course.
Be warned, that if you have GNUcash installed on Hoary, you should uninstall it. I didn’t and ran into these problems with libofx2. How to fix? Uninstall gnucash with the following command:

dpkg -r gnucash
dpkg -r gnucash-common

Now, run apt-get -f install and finally apt-get dist-upgrade again!

I can’t run GNUcash yet, I hope they get this fixed soon! (In an ironic twist, launchpad.net is down for maintenance, it’ll be back later!)

Later! I discovered how to fix the problem with libofx2! You need to remove libofx0c102 first!

  1. I just upgraded to Breezy myself. Fantastic, apart from the kindof odd default environment. I’m still getting used to it. I noticed your earlier posts about looking for a firewall scripting environment. I was myself looking to get Firewall Builder installed into my Breezy setup, but to no avail. Even compiling from source it wouldn’t run, complaining of missing libfwbuilder.so.6, despite it being in the right place, in the path, and generally ok.

    I like Ubuntu enough to keep it, but want to tinker with my ‘walls.


  2. thanks for the post! =) I’ve procrastinated WAY too long to upgrade my ubuntu… no I’m on the hoary->breezy->dapper path. Caught the same problem and removing gnucash got me going again… then I read a couple lines futher about removing “libofx0c102″ so will try that too!
