update-manager -c tried to update me to 17.10 and then crashed halfway
through. I had to manually change the sources.d list to bionic, then apt
dist-upgrade on the command line. I panicked a bit when their were some
broken dependencies, but I eventually managed to force the upgrade.
Also, the xbmc ppa did not have kodi 17 packages for bionic, so I had to
uninstall, then install from the main ubuntu repo.
After the upgrade it has been plain sailing. I'm on Mythtv 0.28 and Kodi
17 and quite happy.
One issue I did face was screen scaling - gnome only has full integers for
scaling factors - 100% on a 40" 1080p screen is too hard to read from
across the room, but 200% scaling is far too big. I eventually managed to
get a scaling factor I was comfortable with by messing around with a combo
of the gnome settings app and xrandr This was the xrandr command I used,
but it also required toggling back and forth on the settings app to get it
~$ xrandr --output HDMI-0 --scale 1.25x1.25
At least it retains the scaling when I turn the screen on and off. Unity
would forget every time, I think because my HDMI passes through a Yamaha
Home Theatre amplifier which cludges the EDID.
