Post install script for mint cd install

Postby hellfire695 on Fri Feb 10, 2012 12:41 am

here is a little script I wrote to make life easier when installing mint 12 with the cd
its a post install script
just cut n paste and called the saved file install.sh and to run

These are potential dangerous commands, so don't run them unless you know what each does!

sudo sh /PATH/install.sh

apt-get update
apt-get install apt-spy
apt-spy update
apt-get upgrade --force-yes
apt-get dist-upgrade --force-yes
apt-get install preload
apt-get install mint-meta-codecs
apt-get install mint-meta-gnome-dvd
apt-get install wine winetricks

hope everyone finds this simple script useful

The apt-get dist-upgrade also installs level 4 and 5 updates, which normally aren't installed as they may lead to an unbootable system or introduce new hardware incompatibilities that weren't evident from the live session. I've added a warning to above commands as this can leave somebody unable to use their computer (if they don't know how to boot an older kernel or resolve graphics card driver issues).

And perhaps automatically installing wine is not for everybody :wink:

Thank you for adding that warning i never thought of that, as for installing i dont see the harm in it, most people will use it atleast once.
eitherway just a little something for those willing to try it
