We’re pleased to announce the immediate availability of Ubuntu 10.04 LTS (Lucid Lynx). This LTS version is slated to receive security updates until April 2015. As with all our distributions, you may deploy either the 32-bit (recommended for most uses) or 64-bit version.
If upgrading from a prior version of Ubuntu, you need to make sure you’re running the “Latest Paravirt” kernel (220.127.116.11-linode25 or 18.104.22.168-x86_64-linode12). You’ll also need to edit your /etc/fstab file and add the following line:
dev /dev devtmpfs rw 0 0
We’ve also been hard at work updating our Linode Library documentation to support Ubuntu 10.04, and will frequently release new VPS guides for this version. There’s also a Lucid upgrade article which explains the full upgrade process.
