KDE Neon Goes Bionic

This is for testing only, ***likely to break your system***

Now open for testing.

Initial bug reports indicate issues with encrypted home requiring installation of ecryptfs-utils, and possible confusion due to Xenial repositories, though disabled, still being listed in Discover.

I'd do it if I could be bothered to make a disk image... but I can't.

:lol:

I may give this a spin later. Now, which machine should I choose? Maybe the ancient Dell OptiPlex 350, if the extra RAM I've got fits, for a laugh. Oh, bugger. It's a 32-bit CPU. One of the Atom netbooks then. In a VM for good measure. :mrgreen:

Just downloaded the stable version dated today. Been running Kubuntu 18.04, but have been wanting to try out the Neon as it runs the most up-to-date version of Plasma on the stable 18.04 lts base.

Will be curious to see how you guys like this. I'm content with KDE Debian 9 and Kubuntu at this point, but more options for Plasma is nice.

I'm about to make a backup and install it.

You must install the 16.04 Neon base then use the upgrade process to get to the 18.04 base. It's strange that the Neon devs didn't create an 18.04 base .iso.

If this upgrade works, I'll restore from my backup and redo it. Only a few minutes left in the upgrade process...
