Upgrading to Mint Felicia

Postby Infrasound » Wed Nov 12, 2008 6:07 am

Can i burn the iso of Felicia onto a disc, then pop the disc in and upgrade it from there?

Is it possible to do that?

I once tried putting xubuntu disc on ubuntu.
It told me that there are some packages available and i can install it and stuff.

Is it the same with this?

Thanks

I did not understand this post until I looked at the subject line
No you can't use the ISO to upgrade an earlier version
From now we will have an upgrade tool. It is not ready yet :) but it will be available in a few weeks time

Will it be planted to the cd...or are you saying that this is going to be a feature on the next version of linux mint?

In other words...Will the cd be recognised immediately after i pop it in and start upgrading immediately? (upgrading from elyssa)
or is it going to be an added feature on felicia?

Thanks in advance....

BTW, linux mint should never had released the RC1 and should release it in BETA instead.
Since I don't even know that it doesn't even have automated upgrading.
And it ain't user friendly.

you want user friendliness? try the mint kde version of mint.

theyll planning to release felicia in 2 weeks time they released felicia rc1 so before they make the final release they can sort out bugs and adding some things user might want.

well my 2 cents

Yes, if it ain't ready, release it in BETA...so people knows that it's not polished yet.

Where can I download this distro ugrader? Is there a command to upgrade mint like in ubuntu? These system are almost the same. I have tried doing dist-upgrade but it is not working. I want to upgrade. Do I need to download cd image?

Please do not quote the previous posts all the time - it makes the topic harder to read and uses up disk space
Use the dist-upgrade option with care and only when you have the correct repositories for your version of Mint enabled
There will be a tool you can use in Elyssa to upgrade to Felicia. You will be able to install it from the Software manager/Portal and then use it to upgrade
