Re: WINE seems to be outdated

Sid is basically testing right now, so it really wouldn't have much newer packages. Experimental is where the newest stuff is going, and I'm surprised to hear that's not up to date.

When using wine I tend to just use their Debian repo. Instructions are here: http://www.winehq.org/download/deblenny

Re: How to make each package upgrade to save it first

And I bet KDE4.x is for some time in Stable repo, correct? If you're still on KDE 3.5 you definitely should avoid rolling, testing. Try debian stable or centos. that the patch is not that hard -- because storing is already there. So such option would only prevent deleting. All it takes is -- adding...

Re: How to make each package upgrade to save it first

Thank you. I think better approach would be to patch apt-get -- add an option which guarantees no package is removed during install, even if there is no space on disk (in such case download & install fails, but the old packages are intact). Since apt-get is open-source I think amount of coding is c...

Re: How to make each package upgrade to save it first

Thank you very much for the link. This approach however relies on fact, that somebody still keeps previous version in the repo. So you have to have some good luck, and be online -- which kills the purpose of rollback (how you rollback some net package, which establishes net connection). > Alternati...

Alternatively, I believe some filesystems have the ability to snapshot and rollback. You might research that, but I suspect its not a common practice yet.

Try running it from a terminal and see if anything useful is spit out when you reproduce the bad behaviour.

Re: Why "testing" to "squeeze" now

I'm running Sid and it's going to break when Squeeze is released. It's stability right now is because of the Squeeze freeze. When the unfreeze happens the Sid will hit the fan. For the first 10 days after Squeeze is released there won't be much if any updates to Testing, while Sid will see a huge i...

Re: Questions before Squeeze is released...

Just a clarification: LMDE follows testing. When Squeeze released as Stable, LMDE will follows the new testing (now sid) which will have the code name wheezy. So eventually squeeze will become past for us. Just a clarification of your clarification Debian OldSable [Current codename is Etch, Next wi...

Re: Why "testing" to "squeeze" now

I have been running the sid unstable repos with out a hitch so when these packages migrate down into the testing branch it should be a smooth transition. Believe me the debian devs are going to do their best to make sure all is well ... why worry, for the sake of worrying? people are giving their o...

Re: Lots of additional packages during update

Two questions in regard to removing "gnome-core" meta-package: 1. If any new dependencies are added to gnome-core, will APT notify me of these additional packages? 2. How about the transition from Gnome 2.x to Gnome 3 later on? 1. Not if gnome-core isn't installed no. If it is, then when you type "...

A couple other solutions are posted that are preferable to this one. Avoiding updating isn't really solving the problem as much as avoiding.

My computer is actually booting, running, and opening apps slower than it does with windows 7 starter. 5400 is a pretty slow hard-drive.

Re: Changing the gdm3 login theme

It's probably the reason Mint dev's run the mintsystem script. Installing desktop-base would've set gdm to the new Spacefun theme. If you'd said yes and let it switch, on next reboot the mint init script would've restored it to default Mint.

Hey, nice job. Now we know where Mint users have to make their changes if they want them to persist. You moved the file out of there, which is ok, but probably not the best idea. I only say that, because I have to assume the Mint devs had *some* reason for overwriting a bunch of config files at ever...
