May I have to upgrade?

Postby lool55 » Mon Oct 01, 2007 6:33 am

My currently OS is Linux Mint Celena Beta 021 .

I'm not sure

-How to upgrade? (not big problem)
-Unneccessery for Celena beta 021?
-What's real difference between beta021 & light edition?

Thank you if you post some links I'd follow the answer easier.

lool5: You're currently running BETA021 of the Main Edition. You could upgrade to the stable Main Edition but there's no real need (only envy differs from the two and BETA021 can be considered pretty stable). The Light Edition is basically built from the Main Edition but without multimedia support and patented technologies.

lool55: you can create light edition by remove some of the packages. And when you have light edition, you can apt-get some packages to create the main edition

Has anyone had a problem with the download from yalm.eu.?.
I used this as it was the fastest download but it fails the checksum.

Hi,

I rechecked the md5sum:


h1324710:/var/www/linuxmint# md5sum LinuxMint-3.1-Light.iso
fb8f3e4d88bc31e4e0df9e764326731d LinuxMint-3.1-Light.iso
h1324710:/var/www/linuxmint#

According to the LinuxMint download page this is correct.
