Feeling a bit stupid…

I really should have read this and this before trying to upgrade my Slicehost slice to Ubuntu Karmic last night.
Wondered why the darned thing wouldn’t mount the filesystem properly. After half an hour stressing with a read-only filesystem, I finally decided to check out what Slicehost themselves have to say about upgrading Ubuntu. The real problem discovered, the fix took all of 30 seconds. It was because of incompatible kernels. Luckily I could upgrade the kernel of the slice post hoc, and reboot, and everything works again.
Now, time to go and turn on those backups…
