keeping test systm updated with Alpha2 weekly builds
« on: April 20, 2009, 10:58:18 am »
I have a test system with Alpha 2 from march and want to be able to get latest weekly build without doing a fresh Kubuntu install.

Thanks. I assumed that only did the Kububtu part.

Hi gadget,

If you're running a core/hybrid and you've built the repository list correctly then you just have to go to the KDE desktop and let it run the update/upgrade mechanism.

Cheers.

Hi Pigdog,

I had thought I was getting updates when doing it, but only the KUBUNTU updates were being processed.
I have a 64bit system and noticed that all athe updates are only i386.
How can I get the 64bit updates.

pigdog, the apt-get commands above are the command line equivalent of using the gui update tool in kde. much quicker and easier for us cli types ;)
gadget, there is no 64 bit version ready for testing yet. you installed the 32 bit version and should continue getting 32 bit updates.

For some reason the 64bit builds were abandoned after alpha-2.5.

Hi merkur2k,

Just commenting that the gui tool for some people is easier.

For "us cli types" (who started uploading instructions using punch tape on 110/300 baud terminals) and tl1 types (old telco guys) gui's are nice and pretty but executing one command at the prompt beats migrating through a bunch of layers any day.

Cheers.

Thanks Zaerc for explaining how i had a 64bit system running, but not getting any recent updates.
Will downgrade it to 32bit to continue getting updates.

Thanks.
