no updates for LMDE for so long

Postby hamburger on Thu Jul 26, 2012 6:32 am

hmm...never thought i would register the forum...anyway, just did it because i really need to ask this question out.

it seems to me that there isn't a single update for LMDE for quite some time. is this normal? at the meantime, my ubuntu desktop has got a lot of patches (just saying, i know LMDE is totally different from ubuntu).

by the way, i've read the thread in application & software section about why software isn't the latest in mint. however, i still think this 'no update' thing is a bit abnormal... :?: :?: :?:

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Look at zerozero's comprehensive FAQ for LMDE here, viewtopic.php?f=197&t=91405

In particular, read section 1.3 re: Update Packs.

Basically there are no updates in LMDE between UP releases. Searching "Update Pack" on the forum will also yield many similar questions/discussions.

This might be a stupid question, but if wheezy receives updates from sid regularly, why don't we get them here? Is this down to the upstream change freeze (i.e. wheezy isn't getting updates from sid any more)
