Upgrading from Cassandra

Postby flammenwurfer on Tue Dec 04, 2007 6:34 pm

Will it be possible and or a pain in the butt to upgrade from Cassandra KDE to Daryna KDE when it's done?

I currently have Sidux on my laptop, but can't get everything to work on it. KDE Cassandra is the one distro that has worked the best on my laptop. I would like to be able to put it back on there for now since KDE Daryna isn't done yet, and we don't have any idea when it will be done. But I want to be able to easily upgrade to it when it's done (if the issue with media controls from the beta is fixed).

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Daryna KDE will be out very soon.
It will not be an easy upgrade from Cassandra to Daryna, and I would not recommend it.
Make sure you create a /home partition so when you reinstall you do not lose your important stuff.

Excellent! That's what I wanted to hear. I'll just hold off on installing til Daryna is out then.

Out of curiosity. Did you get a chance to look into the issues with the media controls that quit working between Cassandra and the Daryna betas?

No I forgot about those media controls...
I don't know if a patch fixes it either since I am now assuming most patches break stuff, epically security ones.

Dangit! That's one of the biggest complaints I've had with other distros, and Mint KDE Cassandra has been the only one that they've worked with.

Do you know what package or settings are responsible for those working? Maybe I could figure it out on my own.
