[SOLVED] LM16: enable upgrade only to LTS versions

Postby palimmo on Sun Jan 12, 2014 1:47 pm

Hi.
I have installed a few minutes ago LM16 on my mother laptop.

As was previously possible, I'd like to set up system upgrades only to new LTS versions (so my mother will get soon LM17 and no others for 2 years).
Where can I find now this option?

thanks!

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Linux Mint doesn't have this option. Linux Mint doesn't automatically upgrade in-place to newer releases. The officially supported way of upgrading is by installing the new version to replace the current version: http://community.linuxmint.com/tutorial/view/2. If you want you can manually upgrade in-place once the new release is available, by editing your repositories configuration.

Ah ok, so I thought it had the same option as Ubuntu.

thanks!

Why not install Mint 13? It is supported until 2017.

Because with LM16 I've had better wifi driver recognition... and because I thought about that option.

Well... as soon as they will be available, I will edit my repositories pointing to LM17.
Will be this operation "smooth" for my machine?... like a version upgrade in Ubuntu?
thanks!
