Should I upgrade Ubuntu before I update FOG to 1.0.1

  • I have FOG .32 running on Ubnunt 10.04. I would like to upgrade Ubuntu to 12.04 should I do that before or after I do the fog upgrade?

    If you’re wanting a newer OS that still runs smoothly and lacks bloat then I’ll toss in another shout out to using Debian 7.5 . But yes, with any system its best to get major OS work out of the way before trying to set up software that you want to be stable. Dependencies change, folder locations change, kernels change… it can be a mess for software to go through OS upgrades.

    i would recommend a fresh install, if you can. if not, then upgrade the server first, then fog.
    i run 12.04 lts with no issue. 14.04 is new enough that we’re still working out some of the quirks with it.

    I would upgrade the OS before I upgrade the Software.

    Personally I wouldn’t Update the OS, I think that 10.04 runs better than ANY of the latest revisions, however, 13.04 or 13.10 would be a good upgrade if you plan to run 1.0.1.

    10.04 will support 1.0.1.
