meztek wrote:In the future, should I just not upgrade packages in bulk, or is there a better way to ensure that nothing breaks?
Monsta wrote:Roll back to where?
Monsta wrote:This doesn't have anything to do with rolling releases. You would get the same result in Ubuntu.
Monsta wrote:Well, you can create a thread describing what's broken, and someone may help you fixing it.
Monsta wrote:LMDE should always be upgraded "in bulk". Breakages do happen though. If you want to be absolutely sure nothing breaks on the next update, don't use LMDE. Switch to Debian Stable or Mint 13 (LTS).
meztek wrote:Either way, what I mean is that if I had a problem with a package upgrade in, say, Mint 13, I would have the option to just re-install Mint 13 from the disk.
meztek wrote:If it is a software problem due to an upgrade, which board would be most appropriate for me to post it in? Update/Upgrade Issues, or Software & Applications?
meztek wrote:So, what is the difference between the updates in Mint 13 and the updates to LMDE that make LMDE a rolling distribution?
Monsta wrote:You can reinstall LMDE from the disk, why not?
Monsta wrote:In Mint 13, you will almost never get a newer upstream version of any package, only the minor updates/security bugfixes provided by the Ubuntu maintainers. (They have several newer kernel versions backported there, though.)
In LMDE, the whole system is updated when the new Update Pack is released and you apply the updates. You get a new kernel, new system libs, new apps, new everything. And new bugs, of course.
