Upgrading to Ubuntu 14.04

Every time when starting up Ubuntu I get this popup window. I think it is time to upgrade to Ubuntu 14.04. Before starting the upgrade we make a backup of the complete virtual image, just in case something would happen.

Let's click the Upgrade button and see what happens.

When we hit the Upgrade button the installation starts by fetching all the files from the Ubuntu download server.

The the download has finished the following window appears.

Clicking the Start Upgrade button will start the installation which will take 2-3 hours. When finished we have to restart the system.

We are running Ubuntu 14.04 LTS.


Both Vivado 2014.2 and SDK 2014.2 run perfectly fine in Ubuntu 14.04. Wake up Xilinx, time to support Ubuntu.
