What's better - Update Mint RC1 or Final Release ?

Postby svgt on Sun May 24, 2009 5:12 pm


For some days I am using Mint 7 Gloria RC1. When there will appear the final release of Gloria, could I reach the same level by updating the RC1 version? Or should I do a fresh installation of the final release?

You should be able to get the RC on par with the final. Clem listed the bugs that were fixed and how they were fixed in the blog. I followed what was in the blog to have my install the same as the final. I worked around the Intel bug myself and did not want to have to do that over with the final. Clem generally provides upgrade instructions when the final is released.
