Yet Another ERROR from Mint Update

Postby malligt » Thu Dec 02, 2010 10:43 am

It's quite frustrating to have all these <errors> via mint update....Does somebody/anybody on the Mint Dev Team proof these updates (especially the #1 priority ones) before the go out to the server for the general public?

The track record of LMDE update "errors" since its release to users is less than spectacular.

LMDE as whole is very nice.... just the updating process and its errors, and on occasions they've even bricked my system.....

Today-- December 2--a notification of a #1 priority update errors out and won't install....geesh.

I'm having the same problem, in my case, the one not installing is MINTDESKTOP I keep getting the error "There's no script in the new version of the package - giving up", the package is mintdesktop_3.2.2_all.deb

It looks like it refers to gdm instead of gdm3...

I think you are all being too harsh on the developers. At the very outset you were told that LMDE is an experimental version and there were no guarantees that it would be suitable for everyday use.

I have been using it since it came out. Yes, there have been some minor issues. Even though I am not really technically minded, I have managed to solve most of them. Any others have been quickly resolved by members of the forum.

+1 to that,

LMDE works great,

one or two minor hick-ups so far and always the solution right here on the board!
