1308383

After workarounding bug #1308338 the upgrade started and succeeded without errors. Bug #1300760 about the untranslated title string was annoying.

I did have some prompts for config files, but I believe those were all modified by me or by some software I have
/etc/init.d/sendsigs # custom debug
/etc/fuse.conf # user_allow_other
/etc/gnome/defaults.conf # probably Spotify modified it at least
/etc/pulse/daemon.conf # fixed sample rate to fix SPDIF
and some others.

As described in bug #1308378, I did not have network (or DNS to be exact) after a reboot.

Finally, Compiz crashed during the upgrade - bug #1308383 - while I tried to switch to the Firefox window that was already open. Since I had terminal open and focused I started metacity to be able to switch windows. The upgrade process itself continued meanwhile.

The crash report about compiz was the only one encountered after booting to the upgraded system.
