Mintupdate-Debian 1.0.2

Postby rdonnelly » Sat Aug 27, 2011 4:38 pm

I recently installed the LMDE re-spin on my laptop. I notice the update manger was different. It has helpful update pack info, that tells you what might hose your system. I did my latest update with this manager instead of the command line with no problems. I have been out of the loop for a while, and I am wondering what repos I should be using?
Using Mint since 2008
*Mint 18.2 KDE
*ASUS 970 PRO GAMING/AURA AM3+ AMD 970 + SB 950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1
*AMD FX-8370 with AMD Wraith cooler Vishera 8-Core 4.0 GHz (4.3 GHz Turbo)
*G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB DDR3 SDRAM
*nVIDIA GEFORCE GT 610 2GB

hi,
it depends how stable you want your system to be http://blog.linuxmint.com/?p=1781

the 201108 respin comes pointing latest, the repo we assume is the more stable and tested, the call is yours if you decide to risk more.
