How to upgrade Linux Mint 14 to Linux Mint 15

I’m upgrading my Linux Mint 14 Nadia box to Linux Mint 15 Olivia, here is how i did

Change the repositories, replace all “precise” with “quantal” and “maya” with “nadia”

sudo sed -i 's/quantal/raring/' /etc/apt/sources.list
sudo sed -i 's/nadia/olivia/' /etc/apt/sources.list

Update the system

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
sudo apt-get upgrade

The installing process will ask you if you want new configuration files, you should choose “Y” to accept the new files. The old configuration files will be stored in the same directory as the new ones. If you are not happy with the new settings, you can restore back to your old configuration files.

Restart the system

sudo shutdown -r now
