Hi guys, thank you very much for another great release.

I couldn't find any mention of the upstream issues with AMD/ATI and the 16.04 LTS... Does this version of LL still have those?

Thanks very much!

ATTENTION ALL WHO UPGRADED:

There was a bug in Lite Upgrade. This is now fixed. Please run:

I know this is pain for some to run this again, but if I don't fix this properly now, we will have this bug every upgrade.

... There was a bug in Lite Upgrade. ...

That answers my question I was about to ask because I did it before reading this. No problem, just had to set the LL widget to autostart and reposition it with Conky manager.

Thanks for the info. Just did the update and upgrade without a problem.

Thank you very much for your answer!!
Yeah, I'm going to try it regardless of the AMD CPU.
I'm so glad I'm back to LL!
Cheers!

Quote from: Release Notes for 16.04

Canonical will not be supporting the fglrx/Catalyst Linux driver in their archive beginning with Ubuntu 16.04 Xenial Xerus. There's nothing stopping anyone from downloading the latest release from AMD.com and installing the driver directly or generating the Debian packages from that -- assuming upstream Linux kernel and xorg-server compatibility -- but it's not being supported by upstream Ubuntu.

For most users, the open-source Radeon graphics stack is "good enough" particularly if you just care about desktop use-cases, video playback, and light gaming. However, currently the open-source Radeon Linux graphics stack only supports OpenGL 4.1 rather than OpenGL 4.5, the open-source OpenCL compute stack leaves a lot to be desired, and there are other current open-source AMD driver limitations that for some users will make switching to the open-source driver a regression in experience and performance.

Well, I understood "For most users, the open-source Radeon graphics stack is "good enough" particularly if you just care about desktop use-cases, video playback, and light gaming." I am clueless about that open stack stuff.  ::)

Hopefully, that will not be a problem using Linux Lite.

Excellent job for LL3.2, Jerry & all the devs.

One thing I'm intrigued about with LL3.2. Most of the time I use an ESET antivirus for Linux though apparently it is not supported by SystemD - I found that out when I tried to install it on Lubuntu 16.04 for my son - needless to say it wasn't compatible.  However, with LL 3.0 and 3.2, ESET works out of the box ... well done for that.

The upgrading from LL3.0 to 3.2 went smoothly.  However, it had the unintended consequence of upgrading an older version of Supertuxkart (0.8.1-2) to the current 0.9 version, which I didn't want as the graphics card in the PC is too old to run 0.9.  How can I prevent LL doing this in future series upgrades?

Many thanks for any advice on the above and keep up the great work that you and all the devs do

Regards
Mike

Linux user since 2014. Below: 64bit OS installed in Legacy mode on MBR (msdos/ext4) formatted SSDs, except the pi which uses a micro SDHC card:
2017 - Raspberry pi 3B (4cores) ~ Arm710@1.2GHz - LibreElec, used for upgrading our Samsung TV (excellent for the task)  
2012 - Lenovo G580 2689 (2cores; 4threads] ~ i3-3110M - LL3.8/Win8.1 dual-boot (LL working smoothly)
2011 - Samsung NP-N145 Plus (1core; 2threads) ~ Intel Atom N455@1.66GHz - Manjaro (tried LL3 series but lagged)
2008 - Asus X71Q (2cores) ~ Intel T3200@2.0GHz - LL4.4/Win8.1 dual-boot (LL working beautifully)
2007 - Dell Latitude D630 (2cores) ~ Intel T7100@1.8GHz - LL3.8/Win8.1 dual-boot (LL really zippy!) - my daily driver  :-)
