I have ubuntu server 12.04 installed on vmware vsphere 5.1 latest build. I just went to upgrade 12.04 to 12.10 and it served up a graphics card limitation warning before allowing install. How do I manage this issue in vsphere 5.1?
do-release-upgrade warns me:
Your graphics hardware may not be fully supported in Ubuntu 12.10. Running the 'unity' desktop environment is not fully supported by your graphics hardware. You will maybe end up in a very slow environment after the upgrade. Our advice is to keep the LTS version for now. For more information see wiki.ubuntu.com/X/Bugs/UpdateManagerWarningForUnity3D Do you still want to continue with the upgrade? Continue [yN]
The wiki link states
Outdated hardware not providing required level of OpenGL support, Too new hardware without driver support yet, Obscure hardware without 3d support, Virtual machines, Binary drivers required but not installed
This is definitely virtual machine issue in my case which needs resolution.
