UP7, Questions about installs

Postby pjc123 on Mon Oct 28, 2013 3:42 pm

Well, it looks like the Update Pack 7 update went well on both a modern Pentium 4, 64 bit, quad processor computer and an older Pentium 4, 32 bit, single processor computer. The only pre-update thing that I did was to kill the screensaver per the update instructions. The only issue on the older one is that the graphics has some anomalies when I move the mouse around. I have a Nvidia card on the older computer, whereas the other one has an ATI card. I have two questions regarding the install:

QUESTION #1) On the older computer the following message came up during the install. Do I need to do anything, and if so, what is the correct entry that I need to make:

"This system is currently running Linux 3.2.0-4-486 and you are installing Linux 3.10-2-486. In the new version some of the drivers used on this system may require additional firmware files:

snd_emu10k1: emu/emu1010_notebook.fw, emu/emu0404.fw, emu/micro_dock.fw, emu/emu1010b.fw, emu/audio_dock.fw, emu/hana.fw

Most firmware files are not included in the system because they do not conform to the Debian Free Software Guidelines. You may need to reconfigure the package manager to include the contrib and non-free sections of the package archive before you can install these firmware files."

QUESTION #2) On both computers I let the install overwrite the following files (The installation asked what to do with them). Was that OK to overwrite the old information, and do any programs rely on this information being correct? As you can see I saved the old information just in case I do need to revert. Here are the before and after contents of each file that was changed:

a. FILE = /etc/issue

-LMDE Cinnamon Edition \n \l

+Debian GNU/Linux jessie/sid \n \l

b. FILE = /etc/issue.net

-LMDE Cinnamon Edition
\ No newline at end of file

+Debian GNU/Linux jessie/sid

c. FILE = /etc/os-release

-NAME="Linux Mint LMDE"
\ No newline at end of file

+PRETTY_NAME="Debian GNU/Linux jessie/sid"
+NAME="Debian GNU/Linux"
