Updated installation version of mint 13

Postby rfnreynders » Sat Nov 03, 2012 5:50 am

Hello to all,

I have the following question.

Is it possible that the Mint team periodically releases an updated installation version of mint 13.
With this i mean, with all updates that have been released since mint 13 came out.


I install mint on alot of systems, all different systems.
Friends, family etc.

But some don't have fast internet and so it takes forever to update a system now, after install due to all the updates that came out.
Further more, all the updates use up a bunch of space (which i can later clear). But all in all it is a lot of extra work.

Also, i am almost always installing mint 13 with mate. But mate is still in version 1.2.1
I'd like to see the installer contain version 1.4 of mate or up.

Updating to mate 1.4 is "crap" . somehow the links are all broken.

So my question, please make an updated installation version of mint 13 with mate and if possible do this periodically. It will save alot of people (including admins) alot of time and effort... And ofcourse mint 13 will be stabler and safer right out of the box !

Thx in advance,

Rene Reijnders :D


I love Linux Mint :D

Given that mint 13 has a 5 year lifespan, I think it's quite likely there will be an official .iso refresh at some point.
[Edit] your original post and add [SOLVED] once your question is resolved.
