Title: Snapshot
Post by: RayBe on December 05, 2010, 02:08:51 pm
Hi all,

maybe a bit of a stupid question but here it comes anyway :) :

in the wiki (http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/LinuxMCE-0810_beta) i saw that there is a new Update,
but when i look here at http://linuxmce.iptp.org/snapshots/ i saw that the snapshot is only 2.2G big.
question:
when i do sudo apt-get update and sudo apt-get upgrade will i be getting all of the updates from Update 2010-12-05 23479?
and will everything be installed the way it is supposed to be or will there be issues?

br,
Raymond

Raybe, as far as i understand the snapshots have the latest and greatest in them. when you do an update upgrade you get all the "committed" changes as you can see on the changelog.

So short answer for you is.... yes

If you do have issues, I would recommend the use of the latest 3.8 GB one (i.e. snapshot 23388).

Cheers,
Matt.

If you do have issues, I would recommend the use of trac to document the issues that happen with the latest snapshots :)

And yes, what ever is on the beta page and is not filed under upcoming should be in the repo (if I haven't forgotten a package)

Sorry, I had been avoiding the latest snapshots because the smaller file size frightened me. Obviously this is pure ignorance; I will use them from now on.

purps, ConfirmDependencies will deal with any missing packages by downloading them from the net. Do not worry. LinuxMCE for its faults, does have some very smart spots. ;)

do NOT run ConfirmDependencies manually.

i will say it again.

DO NOT RUN ConfirmDependencies manually.

It is run when it needs to be run, automatically. This system is an appliance.

yesterday evening i did a sudo apt-get update and sudo apt-get upgrade, no problem at all :)

if i can remember correctly (but don't know for sure) i only got a few minor messages about rights and some files it couldn't find and at the end about some double repo entry,
but i think its supposed to work this way, Lmce only lets you know this stuff, i think these messages are not error-messages by default.

I now have a working Core and among other great improvements, can tag media using the TVDB and IMDB :)

thanks all for making the update process a bit clearer.

and YES LinuxMCE is much more intelligence than it shows at first glance ;)

br,
Raymond

Raymond,

Can you recall how much of data was downloaded during apt-get upgrade?
I've got limited bandwith just want to know before I download the latest snapshot.
