Forcing LinuxMint Gloria to upgrade to Ubuntu Karmic

Forcing LinuxMint Gloria to upgrade to Ubuntu Karmic

"I tried the Karmic Live CD, and it made me want the new kernel from Karmic.
It solves a couple of issues I'm having with the Jaunty/Gloria kernel (particularly display driver issues)."

"I grepped /etc recursively for ""Glorial"", found the suspect in /etc/lsb-release, edited that file to say ""ubuntu"",

DISTRIB_ID=Ubuntu
DISTRIB_RELEASE=9.04
DISTRIB_CODENAME=jaunty
DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION=""Ubuntu 9.04""

and then ran the upgrade tool. Went quiet ok. It wasn't totally smooth (there were a few hiccups), but went mostly ok.

Though for some reason now, /etc/lsb-release has been edited by some 'tool' to say 'Mint' again."
