Is LMDE up to date?

Post by jonotime » Mon Dec 12, 2011 2:44 pm

I am a little confused about LMDE. I am using it now, and it gives me Gnome 3.0.x.

I want Gnome 3.2 and noticed that Linux Mint 12 has that. So why does the release have it but the rolling release not? I would think the rolling release would have all packages be at least as up to date as the periodic release Mint. Is this not so?

No, afraid not. The most up-to-date Debian is Sid. Testing is a bit behind that, and Squeeze is way behind both, but solid as a rock.

The LinuxMint Devs have stated that they are waiting for Gnome-3.2 to hit the Debian 'testing' repros - before releasing a new LMDE image.

This is what I dont understand. How did Gnome 3.2 make it into Mint 12 without getting into the testing repos? This is where I presume LMDE would have picked it up.

I assumed LMDE was always ahead of all official releases like Mint 12.

LMDE is based on Debian Testing. Mint 12 is based in Ubuntu.

Oh yeah. That explains it. Forgot about that. Thanks.
