This is a short recap of how I managed to lock myself out of the root account of an Amazon EC2 Ubuntu instance and how I gained control again.
My experiences with upgrading Ubuntu 8.10 (Intrepid Ibex) to Ubuntu 9.04.
After the upgrade to Intrepid the web developer Firefox add-on didn’t show it’s toolbar any longer.
network-manager package in Intrepid messed up my firewall
(managed by Firestarter) by connecting to the wired and wireless
network at the same time. The solution for me: Gufw.
Almost flawless upgrade from Hardy Heron (8.04) to Intrepid Ibex (8.10). Only
python-setuptools needed manual attention. Other than that: I love it!
