If you, like me, think the new Ubuntu is horribly b0rkd and imprecise, welcome! This post is for you! I’ll teach in few easy steps how to rollback to the previous release. It should work for any Ubuntu rollback. First of all, go to the Terminal.
- sudo sed -i ‘s/precise/oneiric/g’ /etc/apt/sources.list
- sudo vim /etc/apt/preferences and add the following lines:
- sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
Pin: release v=11.10
That’s it. You may need to sudo apt-get -f dist upgrade and I don’t guarantee your system will be wonderful after a rollback (you know how these things are…). I hope that helped!
Update: It took me 3hours to recover my Ubuntu 11.10. I should have started from scratch…
