Does mint upgrade to the next release version like ubuntu does (8.10 to 9.04) ?
 
Hi,

I need to get something installed today. A new installation of Mint or ubuntu. If Mint will upgrade from one release to the next without hiccups I will install it. If not, vanilla ubuntu, which has upgraded perfectly from Intrepid to Jaunty for me on three different boxes, will be my OS.

Do you know if Mint does this as well ?

Thanks,

B

It should.

Check in the menu under "System/Admin/software sources"

and see under "updates"
it should be on normal

you can change it around

NOTE:
If you want a Nice Ubuntu
try Ultimate-Edition 2.2 (9.04)
it rocks

It would be nice if the person that answers a question had knowledge about it
Mint does not use "Software sources" - in fact you have to do some tricks to get it to work on Mint
The intention is to have an upgrade option in mintUpdate in Helena (Mint 8) and backport that mintUpdate to Gloria so an automatic upgrade can be performed (or possibly have it ready for Gloria earlier)

Check out the blog, I still recommend installing a fresh system, when I did this it was kinda broken.

You mean Ultimate 2.3 ( 9.04) & yes - it does rock.

Try the 64bit - if you can - that's even better .

A question for Husse:

The New Ubuntu 9.10 is due to be released later this year. Around the end of October.
How long after that do you expect the release of LinuxMint-8 (Helena) ??

Husse 07-31-2009 04:00 AM

Main is normally released some two weeks after the Ubuntu release
