I just installed a fresh Linux Lite 2.6 (from the ISOs) on two machines one 32bit one 64bit, I noticed that the Firewall Configuration GUI (gufw) was not installed by default on the 64bit version. Was this left out of the 64bit version on purpose, or was it just an oversight?

I'm glad I found this forum to finally, and this Linux Lite 2.6 is running like a dream of this five-year-old Fujitsu E8420 laptop. Good work has been done.

My fedora laptop died, but to repay me for fixxing two computers, I was given a desktop computer. It doesn't have enough RAM for Gnome. So I installed Linux lite 2.6, and it has been doing good so far.

I have a question that doesn't appear to have been addressed in these forums.  I'm still on ver. 2.4 and my list of "packages have been kept back" just keeps growing longer.

Before I upgrade to 2.6, should I run "sudo apt-get dist-upgrade" (as shown below) and then reply with "Y" (when prompted as to whether I want to continue) in order to upgrade the packages that have been kept back?  Or should I perform the upgrade to 2.6 first and see which, if any packages are still "kept back" afterwards? Thanks.

Code: [Select]
:~$ sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

To jbecker,

As seen on page one of this thread, all you have to do is the following:

Quote
Upgrading:

For those on Linux Lite 2.4 do the following:

1) Menu, Favorites, Install Updates.
2) Menu, Settings, Lite Upgrade.
3) Follow the onscreen instructions, reboot when finished.

I do dist-upgrade on LL all the time, because Lite Updater won't let me update kernel and some packages from PPAs (like graphics drivers)... No problems so far.

Just keep in mind folks that we recommend against dist-upgrade, and this is stated in the Help Manual. Because we have clearly stated this, we will not give Support if you bork your system, especially when you have gone against what we recommend. This wastes Support time. OFC if someone wants to give you support even after running this command, it's a free world :) We view running dist-upgrade as playing russian-roulette in LL.

Just upgraded from Linux Lite 2.4 to 2.6 with no problem at all. Took about 10 minutes. Great job on a great system. I have been a user of Linux Lite for about a year now. Of all the distros I have tried, I really like LL! Thanks again for such an awesome system.  Stephen  :) :) :)
