Upgrading to Ubuntu 10.04 LTS

Requirements

VPS number must be higher than 999

kernel 2.6.32.x / 2.6.34 / own kernel
Disks must be on /dev/xvda*
Not a turnkey installation
If your VPS does not meet one of these requirements and you still want to upgrade, please contact us.
The following changes must be made to get Ubuntu working as a VPS in our environment. They must be done after the upgrade, but before the reboot. The instructions are based on the assumption that you are currently using an older version and want to upgrade to 10.04. You can use a number of methods to perform the upgrade, but the official method can be found at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/LucidUpgrades.

You can also change /etc/apt/sources.list and use 'apt-get update' and 'apt-get dist-upgrade'; you can do so with this Sources.list.
If you perform this procedure you do so at your own risk. Contact us if you have problems or if you want us to perform the procedure for you.
Once the following changes have been made, the VPS can be rebooted.

 

Ubuntu 9.10

Add to fstab:

 

dev             /dev            tmpfs   rw              0       0

According to Ubuntu, you first need to upgrade to 9.10, but it generally works fine this way too. Of course, this may not work in all cases.
Add to fstab:

 

dev             /dev            tmpfs   rw              0       0
Create in /etc/init/console.conf

# console - getty
#
# This service maintains a getty on console from the point the system is
# started until it is shut down again.

 

start on stopped rc RUNLEVEL=[2345]

stop on runlevel [!2345]

 

respawn

exec /sbin/getty -8 38400 console
