LMDE Update Pack 3 is out!

这个Linux Mint Debian的更新包,如果你没有用这个版本,请跳过


  1. 全新的3.0内核
  2. 包括安全和多媒体库更新.


Changing your repositories

首先要修改Multimedia and Security repositories. 编辑APT源:

gksu gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
  • Replace security.debian.org with debian.linuxmint.com/latest/security
  • Replace debian-multimedia.org with debian.linuxmint.com/latest/multimedia

Your APT sources, should now look like this:

deb http://packages.linuxmint.com/ debian main upstream import
deb http://debian.linuxmint.com/latest testing main contrib non-free
deb http://debian.linuxmint.com/latest/security testing/updates main contrib non-free
deb http://debian.linuxmint.com/latest/multimedia testing main non-free

Save and close the file.


Using the Update Manager

… to update itself

首先要升级Update Manager。

If you see an update for “mintupdate-debian“, accept it and wait for the Update Manager to restart itself.

如果Update Manager可以升级,在升级列表里只会显示Update Manager。

… to check your APT sources

目前最新的mintupdate-debian 版本是1.0.4,会检查你的APT源配置是否正确

  1. 点击 “Update Pack Info” 按钮
  2. 确定 “Your system configuration” 处显示的是绿色的按钮并且没有任何警告或错误信息
  3. 如果有警告或错误信息,按照它的提示重新配置,直到没有错误信息


请仔细阅读Update Pack Info里面的信息

… 开始升级 Update Pack 3

准备好了吧 smiley  请点击 Install Updates 按钮。

升级期间会有一些提问,有一个非常重要:the new kernel will ask you where to install Grub。Answer with the location of your current Grub menu (which on most systems is “/dev/sda“).
