Re: update kernel and other app

Wrong choice. LMDE is no rolling distribution any more. If you want a rolling distribution based on Debian testing you currently have three possibilities (not counting some exotic distributions): 1. Install LMDE and change repositories to track Debian testing (see http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtop...

Re: May I directly track debian testing from its official re

Maybe it will work when LMDE officially moves to frozen Jessie. Betsy/LMDE 2 may be delayed. In August Clem mentioned November ( http://blog.linuxmint.com/?p=2671 ), now we might be looking at Spring 2015 and there won't be any UPs for LMDE 1 ( http://blog.linuxmint.com/?p=2690 ). If you are keen o...

Re: May I directly track debian testing from its official re

http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=198&t=132747 will give you some answers. If you want to track testing to get every package the day it arrives in the repository it will cost you some time (and bandwidth) as there will be frequent breakages (most of the small, others very annoying).

There is no such thing as Linux Mint 17 LMDE. Either you use Linux Mint 17 or you use LMDE.

Re: No updates for me :(

Are my repos dead ? No, but LMDE is, kind of. It has completely stopped rolling and won't start to roll again. After a long reflection and many discussions the decision was made to switch Linux Mint Debian Edition (LMDE) from its current snapshot cycle to a Debian Stable package base. The transitio...

Re: Upgrade Warnings: LMDE tracking TESTING [29-09-14]

I don't have mintupdate (tracking testing from Sparky now) but mirage and reportbug give the same errors here. They still worked with 3.16 (for a day or two). I suppose at least in my case it was the libglib2.0-packages moving from 2.40.0-5 to 2.42.0-1 that did it. It seems that some gtk-programs al...

Re: Checking LMDE

What DE is installed?
What does "seems to be running slowly" mean exactly? Is everything slower than you expect it to be? Is there a lag in response to keyboard or mouse? You should give a bit more information.
ClamAV is (or at least was) known to be slow and ressource-hungry.

Re: Current situation of LMDE concering updates?

Currently it is not advisable for LMDE-MATE-users to start tracking Testing.
You are bound to get trapped in a gridlock of dependencies to and from libcaja-extension (Mate 1.6) and libcaja-extension1 (Mate 1.8 ) which will render package management unusable halfway through the upgrade process.

Maybe the team is focused on his work and don't read the web every 10 minutes like you... I know that you can't cope with criticism, but you don't have to check every 10 minutes to find out - once a day would be quite sufficient. There would also be a more efficient way in subscribing to Debian's s...

Re: Current situation of LMDE concering updates?

Critical security updates have been made available for LMDE in a timely manner earlier (the heartbleed thing for example). I don't agree with this. LMDE-maintainers on average took much longer than other distros. If there is a specific security issue you think is critical, you could bring it to att...

LMDE 2 will improve significantly in this regard, getting security updates immediately from upstream Debian. Not very difficult to fulfill in absolute terms as LMDE 2 will become Debian stable with a few packages added. And not very difficult to fulfill in relative terms compared to LMDE 1. one cou...

That much I already knew. My aim was a different one. Currently apt has had two severe issues and it's likely there will be other packages which should be updated before the end of November. Considering the negligence of security issues in LMDE up to now I'm afraid no one cares anymore and nothing w...

Re: Power Settings

Are you sure your system is going to sleep (suspend to RAM or disk) after just 10 minutes or could this be a misunderstanding and the screensaver activates itself after 10 minutes?

I have been usin LMDE 17 Mate for the past two months already. There is no LMDE 17 Mate. Either there is Mint 17 Mate or there is LMDE Mate. Judging from your kernel version you probably use LMDE Mate. A kernel update would be coming via Update Manager if there were another update pack for LMDE. Bu...

Re: update manager or synaptic causing possible issues?

The answer is already in your posting: the ppas obviously don't exist anymore or the server was down. The former means you will have to delete them from your sources. The latter means you can try again later. ppas shouldn't be used with LMDE as LMDE is not based on Ubuntu. Better delete them from yo...

Re: setting backports on LMDE

Just looking at the packages, I have the impression that LMDE is based on wheezy. For lack of updates LMDE is closer to wheezy than to jessie right now. Considering wheezy's backports LMDE is in many cases even behind wheezy. but it is unclear to me, which backport repository I should set, if any. ...
