Re: Lithium test iso available

^ In fact, I don't think anyone has tested the upgrade from helium to lithium in quite some time, this thread and the related ones are now a year old...

Here are the posts regarding my upgrade, which is still my primary partition. Start here and keep reading the thread...

Re: Lithium test iso available

Hi, two things - when do we expect Lithium to be a stable release?
Second - if I use test now and then want to seamlessly migrate into the stable, how much of PITA will it be?

Thanks.

PS. I'm moving back to BL... Just when I thought I was out... they pull me back in!

Edit. I am unable to download the iso. Getting chromium rn and I'll try on Windows as well. If all fails I'm going Helium and hey ho!

Edit2. Downloading, gonna slap it on my ThinkPad T470 in a bit and will commence thorough (just kidding, I'm a noob!) testing.

I don't have patience or skill to dig deep enough every time system breaks itself or when I break something because of lack of patience and skill.

The only thing you will need to do is to change repository. Eventualy investigate new usersettings for default user in /usr/share/bunsen/skel.

"PITA" what does that means?

Re: Lithium test iso available

Lithium is Debian Stable (Buster). Helium is now old-stable.

NB The default user session is now bl-session, which does not use the Openbox rc.xml and menu.xml. They are still available though,

True. But trust me, if there isn't some weird quirk going on, lithium's stable. We haven't had any major bug reports, and its first boot after installation is way faster than the boot-glich that made helium's first boot a little weird. The login to the default bl-session is smoother, the root menu is better, the themes are better (cough, YMMV), the session options are 100% improved (1+1=2, bl-openbox or close to default Debian openbox *close not cloze, English you suck. YOU'RE TWO DIFFERENT WORDS WITH DIFFERENT PRONUNCIATIONS AND MEANINGS BUT YOU'RE BOTH SPELLED CLOSE, GAAAAA!!! USE A FLIPPING Z, I MEAN ZED! GAAAAA FREAKING aMERicaNZ and bRiTZZZ. BONNET! HOOD! LIFT! ELEVATOR! LAWYER! SOLICITOR! GAAAAAAAA!!!! sorry, moving on* = 100% improvement!), the packages are newer... That's a very incomplete list, but I'd say that this ISO is objectively better than amd64-helium.

Let's call it "The most current stable LIVE-ISO (currently only amd64) release of BL, and the first based on Debian 10."

Yes, Lithium dev is in practise very nice and stable. I prefer it on productive pc.
