Will LMDE ISO Ever Be Updated?

Postby Scorpio_Snake on Tue Dec 04, 2012 10:00 am

I am wanting to give LMDE a try on my new laptop. However the ISO seems to be rather old, from the beginning of the year, which is older than my laptop. It appears that my laptop requires a newer graphics driver than is in the ISO as when I run the live DVD I am getting weird graphics issues making it almost impossible to see what is going on.

Is there any plans to update the ISO any time soon? I believe it was said when the UP5 was released that it would be updated in weeks or months and that amount of time has passed by now.

  • The following releases are planned for December 2012: Linux Mint 14 Xfce, Linux Mint 14 KDE, LMDE UP6.
  • Improvements in live-installer and a new tool called DDM which simplifies the installation of 3rd party drivers are also planned for LMDE. Depending on how fast they progress, new LMDE ISOs based on UP6 might be released in December or in January.

Waiting for new "iso" too. Tried to install on ASUS Q400A (with BIOS/EFI and Secure Boot "off"), it was freezing in a few minutes after installation started. I have tried three times, with installation frozen in a different moment every time and processor loaded much in a same moments (fan sound). The laptop has a Win8 64bit, but installation of other OS, via Secure Boot - off, is possible.

Hope they fix that epic bug with no English locale on first start... because now LMDE is totally unusable for fresh users, 'cause they just can't log in :D
Facepalm, I must say )

Any idea when we can expect an ISO?
I'm staring anticipatively at the community section's ISO testing page, waiting for something to pop up.

It's mentioned in the blog entry about UP6:

Will LMDE get new ISO images with Update Pack 6?

Yes, we’re planning to release LMDE Update Pack 6 for the following editions in January 2013:
  • Cinnamon
  • MATE


I am also looking forward to it, since it takes a while to build a similar setup from a Debian ISO (and there are still quirks, e.g., I can't get the notification panel applet to show me my wireless network status).

The sooner the better, downloading and installing 1400+ packages takes a long time for each new install I do.

Any update on when the new ISO's will be released?

EDIT - Sorry, just saw the answer in another post. Looks like they are in QA, and are moving through the process.

If you read it carefully you should have seen that they were rejected, this means we are not testing them any further. We don't know yet when the new iso's will be uploaded for testing. :)
