So, is there a Lite Upgrade path to go from 4.8 to 5.0?  Will there be a notification of the new release that appears or do you just periodically check?

Thanks, Artim.

"Within a series" means you can upgrade from 3.6 to 3.8, but not from 3.x to 4.x (x being whatever point release).  The first number is the Series.

Newbie question. Is it always possible to use the Lite Upgrade tool to upgrade to a new LL release?

I noticed during install that it stated, "Lite Upgrade can upgrade within the Series".  Not sure if that means Lite Upgrade is safe to use as log as you don't skip a release in the sequential order or if it means that sometimes you need to do a fresh install?

Linux Lite Software Development / Re: Linux Lite Kernel
« Last post by Jerry on March 31, 2020, 10:04:21 PM »
5.6 Linux Lite Kernel is now available for 32 & 64bit machines.

'If it ain't broke...' If you don't need this kernel for a specific reason, don't install it!

These kernels are built for:

- Series 4.x (diamond/bionic 64bit only)
- Series 3.x (citrine/xenial)
- Series 2.x (beryl/trusty) - NB: No more kernels for this Series.

See here for an overview of what's new -

Open a terminal and do:

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install linux-headers-linuxlite-5.6.0 linux-image-linuxlite-5.6.0 -y
If you prefer the point-and-click option, go to Menu, System, Lite Tweaks and select Kernel Installer.

NOTE: If you use proprietary drivers, this kernel may break functionality with those drivers. If you have proprietary drivers installed and you still decide to go ahead with this kernel install, you should be competent in repairing your drivers. If you aren't, DO NOT install this kernel.

IMPORTANT: Only install this kernel if you need it or if you are adept at getting out of trouble from a TTY.
Installing Linux Lite / Re: Install LL 4.8 over old LL 3.8
« Last post by firenice03 on March 31, 2020, 07:39:59 PM »

@JohnD You can 'install' LL4.x to that same partition - yes but you want to format it.
If your /home resides on another partition you 'can' leave it in place -** Although there will be some existing files that could interfere.

^^ so if sda1 is where root (/) resides and say sda2 is /home, you can format sda1 and install LL4.x
*If /home and root are both on the same partition - it cannot be done in this manner and you will loose data*

I don't think you can just install over top without formatting (and if you could -- I WOULD NOT)
There are difference between LL3.x and LL4.x that could cause issues (even with /home)
You could maybe clean up any 'user' files just keeping the data and hoping...

What may be an option in this scenario - if both are on separate partitions.. You could format root and install LL4.x, when creating a user create a different user than in LL3x.   If you had John in LL3.x make it JohnD in LL4.x  then you could move all the 'data' files from John to JohnD (old to new).
Then clean up/delete the remaining old profile (directory).

Regardless - I would suggest backing up the data you dont want to loose - should you inadvertently click something or what have you... Its easier to loose data than get it back...

Simple answer is yes but by upgrading series. Then if you do not know your way around things will be extremely hard to do as things will be broke and some serious know-how will need to be used. If you are going to copy 4.8 over 3.8 then just copy that backup of your home directory and use your existing partitions when installing. It would actually probably be faster to do a clean install than the time it takes to download, upgrade then fix a whole host of things and loose some of the stuff you had since it will write over settings. There are choices and I am sure googling will show you how but be warned there are a lot of things that will need to be fixed. I did it and I am saying this from experience.

Instread of the way Jan has gone in "Re-Installing Linux Lite", I would like to re-install LL without re-formatting the used partitions. This means I would like to copy LL 4.8 over LL 3.8, after having created a backup of my old home data.

There is a way to do this. Now the reasons why normal users shouldn't. There are a lot of programs that get uninstalled, different ways to execute a root program like going from the 3 series to the 4 series. You have all sorts of little things that normal users who are not familiar on how to fix things that are broken should not be messing around with. Just look at the forum post on update errors where they post basically the answer to their own problem yet the posts still occur without googling for an answer or searching the forums. It is easier to rebuild the system rather than take all of the time trying to fix something that went wrong with the update. I do know the steps as I have taken and released a base 3.4 all the way up to the 20.04 daily's and the steps involved are simple but the fixes are not. I know I am probably out of place to say this but I know from experience or at least mine that this is why.
