I can't speak for version 3.0, but I can tell you that 2.8 runs very well on this old netbook, it runs an intel atom n270 processor @ 1.6ghz and only has 1GB of ram. Your specs are better, so I don't think you would have any trouble running a newer version. I would not expect the developers to radically change the minimum system requirements. Just my opinion. :)

Just updated.  I don't see much difference between 2.8 and 2.6 but I'm not a hardcore user.  Update went smoothly and I didn't have any issues before so it's all good.

Thanks Jerry and team!

@Cooastie,
What would be helpful would be a terminal command or program that would list all my programs that I could print.

I'm sure I asked for something similar for future release.
"Software I have installed, Rather than is installed"

You can install another app/package, APTIK
There is an option for Backup & Restore Software Selections list.
it excludes default distro package, so you back just your own list, and restore that list.(NOT the actual packages)

It would be nice to have such a feature like that in Lite Control Centre / Software

Definitely would be a great feature to have !

Thanks a lot avj, good to know. I will most certainly install LL 3.0 when it's released :)

Thank you so much :)
I have a question, when LL 3.0 does release would this version be too much for a netbook?
Right now I'm using v1.0.6 and it's perfect and fast but I really want to try out v3.0 when it comes out.
My netbook is a Toshiba N245 1.66ghz intel atom CPU.  / 2GB RAM / 360GB SSD


Thank you.

That is difficult to predict, June is still a while off. Download the image and try it live, then you'll know for sure.

Hello!

I just tried to upgrade to 2.8 by installing the upgrade script via terminal ("Lite Upgrade"). If I execute the "Lite Upgrade" I get a "Upgrade Cancelled" window. How can I upgrade?

Thanks!


Sorry, my fault. I have 1.0.6 on my laptop.  ::) What's the easiest way to upgrade from 1.x to 2.x without losing settings, files and stuff?

Hi MadMax

I believe this answer to your question is you cannot upgrade from 1.0.6 to the LL 2.x series.

Here's the part of the 2.8 release anouncement (the first post in this thread) that I'm referring to:

Upgrading:

For those on Linux Lite 2.4, 2.6 do the following:

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

For those on versions of Linux Lite 2.0, 2.2 only, do the following:

Open a terminal and do:

Code: [Select]

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install lite-upgrade-series2 -y


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

You cannot upgrade from Linux Lite 1.0.0, 1.0.2, 1.0.4, 1.0.6, 1.0.8

To be safe:

Backup your important personal files onto either a separate partition or a USB stick (Note: this is not needed if you set up your system with a separate soft-linked DATA partition as an update should not touch this).

To keep your program settings: backup your hidden files from your home directory to a separate partition or a USB stick. Be aware, however, that newer versions of some programs might have changed their settings options and your old settings might not work with the newer versions!!

For things like custom fonts, themes, icons, etc: you need to back them up as well to be on the safe side.

As far as your "stuff" goes -- that's your choice.  ;D

Have fun,

I already posted an introduction but I just wanted to add my thanks here.

I've been trying LL off and on over the last few releases and I really wanted to stick with it because it's been one of my favorite distros.  With 2.8 I think I'm ready to settle down.  I appreciate the work that Jerry and others have done to make such a light, fast and yet fully featured OS.  The choices you made in this distro are the same one's I'd choose if I was building it myself.  I even open Gimp and find it's already in Single Window Mode.  Just perfect.  Love the Control Center and the Lite Software app.

Looking forward to what's to come.

My config:
Intel NUC i5
HD Graphics 6000
8 GB RAM

The update on my Presario V2000 went swimmingly. Now just trying to work on the Aspire One Netbook.
