Question apt-get upgrade


Hello everyone , just a quick question about apt-get upgrade,
i upgraded last night (well i think i did) but if i look at
$ cat /etc/debian_version it shows that its 3.0 , should this be
3.0r1 ?


Regards

AXO



Edit: I think i found the answer to be NO , /etc/debian_version
will only show 3.0 ..

Hi,

try to run an 'apt-get dist-upgrade' and check the version again, if it's still 3.0 and not 3.0r1 then they don't change it

Hi,

i asked a few ppl around there on some irc-chans and they told me that there won't be any change at least for some compatibility reasons ...
