[SOLVED] Mint 19.3 software versions

Post by SomeDudeInAZ » Fri Nov 22, 2019 11:36 am

Hi Folks,

Is there a list anywhere of what software versions are included in a Mint update? For instance, over the next week or so I hope to (finally :roll: ) get my raid setup working. Since I've been told mdadm versions can be tricky (especially when used with different distros) I figured I'd check before I did anything. Especially since we're so close to the release date.

Obviously I can just install a beta into a vm and look, but I was wondering if there was a less brute force method of doing it.

Thanks in advance

If you dont want updates to any software, you can right click and choose option to stop uprating. As for the 19.3 list, I don't think it's there.

Thanks deepakdeshp.

I appreciate the reminder. I suppose I should also check out the mdadm site and actually see what the current version *is* too. For all I know we're already running the latest version.

I'm just planning on running several different distros from bare metal all talking to the same drives (which may not be possible for the way I want to set it up - I'll have to experiment).

Thanks again

As a general rule whatever is set by older version of any software, should work with later versions of software. There are exception but they are just that.

Mint point-releases generally only include updates for distribution-specific features, so no mdadm-specific updates in there. For the current list for 19.3 see here: http://packages.linuxmint.com/list.php?release=Tricia but that is not final yet.
