Re: LMDE 201109 - Important INFO

Thing is, you will **probably** be fine having run updates on the new iso, it is just that sources.list is pointing you upstream and not to the lmde repositories, which recieve further testing before the packages get to you. Make your sources.list look like mine and updates will filter to you once /...

Re: MintUpdate-Debian - is it now safe to use?

Hmm. I am seeing a lot of posts with people saying they don't use it because they prefer apt-get or aptitude, killing X first, etc... I get that.

Re: UPDATE PACK 3 FEEDBACK THREAD

/me hopes he didn't overstep his bounds ...
:roll:

I just want to know if my thinking is correct in how testing works and if my ideas are valid. This seemed like the correct thread to post my thoughts in. Perhaps another one would have been prudent. Thanks.
