Re: Debian Testing repos in LMDE MATE?

But installing from testing on LMDE certainly means serious problems, such as the one I'm experiencing with mutex even when I run mintupdate, what a shame. Having LMDE based on such an old snapshot, considering it claims itself "being based on Debian testing" is absolutely unacceptable. I'...

Re: mintupdate: Attempt to unlock mutex that was not locked

No luck, I run sudo apt-get update before starting synaptic. Which repo should I have selected? I've been told several times not to use the debian testing in LMDE... Try again! Maybe you forgot to run update before checking with synaptic. Version 2.24.25-1 is in testing for some days now, at least i...

Re: Debian Testing repos in LMDE MATE?

What will we have to do to upgrade from the current LMDE to the next one, based on Debian stable 8? What will happen with the "lots of packages that aren't available in Debian testing"? Thanks Agus LMDE uses update packs. The last update pack is from February this year (http://blog.linuxmi...

Re: [SOLVED] Dropbox in LMDE/Mate

Beyond the Dropbox issue, and to solve the mutex issue which appears in other cases: I had selected the test repo for installing a particular package. Maybe I upgraded GLib as a dependency. Which version of GLib should I have to avoid the mutex problem? I can try forcing to downgrade Glib to that ve...

Debian Testing repos in LMDE MATE?

Is it true that installing from the Debian Testing repos causes
trouble in LMDE MATE? If so, why?
http://www.linuxmint.com/download_lmde.php states
"LMDE in brief
Linux Mint Debian Edition (LMDE) is a semi-rolling distribution based on Debian Testing."

Thanks
