Upgrading to BETA?

Postby RooieHoed on Wed Oct 28, 2009 4:24 am

Hello,

Can I update/upgrade Mint to the Beta release? In Ubuntu 9.04 I have sound issues. The issues i have is fixxed in 9.10. Now Ubuntu 9.10 releases tomorrow but I want to use Mint. Can I allready update to the beta of MInt8/9.10 ?

If not: When does the new version of Mint comes out?

Greetings.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

In Ubuntu 9.04 I have sound issues
And do you have sound issues in Linux mint 7 (gloria) main edition (Mint's Gnome desktop)

When it is ready, and definitely not at the same time as Ubuntu releases their next version
--Mint does customize the Gnome look a fair bit, and it seems to me it looks better

In other words, I'd wait for Mint
If it is not listed in news or in the repositories, it's not ready/there yet..
Unless you think this is a deal breaker: a term I see popping up on the forums somewhat often, but usually from windows users who are just cruising on Linux Mint

I have a studio 15 laptop from Dell. It has an Realtek HD soundcard. The problem is something with the jackplugs and ALSA.
I modified ALSA in a way I have sound. But the sound is extremely low, the mic doesnt work. All known things in 9.04. 9.10 has an updated ALSA as far as I know wich fixxed it.

I had Ubuntu 9.10 installed and it worked properly. (Sound).

Seems to me, that all the people that are trying to "hack" LinuxMint-8 ... are only going to "bork" their system.
And then come crying and whining to the Mint Dev Team about it, when they do.

Patience ..
