Hi

This looks great and I wanted to try using it via a live USB before upgrading.  Unfortunately I'm presented with a login prompt.  What are the default credentials for this?

Thanks

Thanks for the update Jerry.

But I do however suffer from the problem of not being able to update through "Lite Upgrade". It always say that I'm already on the latest release but I do know that I'm on LL 4.0.

using "apt policy lite-upgrade-series4" fetch me this:
Quote
lite-upgrade-series4:
  Installed: 4.0-0010-linuxlite
  Candidate: 4.0-0020-linuxlite
  Version table:
     4.0-0020-linuxlite 500
        500 http://linuxlite.3load.com diamond/main amd64 Packages
        500 http://linuxlite.3load.com diamond/main i386 Packages
 *** 4.0-0010-linuxlite 100
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status




Trying to change my resources in "Lite Resources" will just end up always as "Lite Sources was unable to update the cache.
This may just be a temporary connectivity issues with the update server." And I've already tried switching to every available server listed and the issue kept persisting.

Can I perhaps upgrade through usb-stick? If I use Etcher to install to the stick and install the upgrade from there, can it be done? Sorry for my inexperience behaviour. Just recently trying out Linux since my old laptop can't survive with Windows anymore and I've been loving every aspect of the OS. Fits me perfectly fine on daily basis.  :)

I only just yesterday installed LL4.2 on my main machine - this was a fresh install as I was on 3.8 before. Jerry, it is AWESOME!!  ;D 8) Runs so smoothly, and was easy to install.

One thing that helped a lot with the install was being able to keep an existing partition where I store some of my files thanks to @firenice03 in this post: https://www.linuxliteos.com/forums/installing-linux-lite/is-it-possible-to-install-ll-keeping-an-existing-partition-(an-ext4)/ . I was able to copy back those files into my fresh "Documents" directory in the new LL much faster than I would have from external hard drive. (Don't worry, I had still backed everything up on external hard drive just to be safe!  ;) ) Anyhow I can see that this approach will help me immensely any time I do a fresh install.

I love all the customization options through the settings. Thanks for another great version of a great distro, Jerry. Donation sent. Much appreciated.

You are very welcome, and thanks for the contribution!

Replying to my own post. I have tried running head /etc/apt/sources.list.d/linuxlite.list. The result I get is deb http://repo.linuxliteos.com/linuxlite/ citrine main

I am wondering if citrine is wrong and should be diamond. Is that correct?

I still cannot update LL. It insists that I am up to date with version 3.8. I am using v 4.0 which I installed from the final version, not the beta one. I was getting some replies about this, but they have now disappeared. Although I have used computers for many years, and Linux exclusively since 1999, I still find this forum the most difficult one to use that I have ever seen. I have tried everything that I can think of, but to no avail. I think now that I have two options. I can stay with version 4.0 until version 5.0 arrives. Or I can look elsewhere for a different distro. I don't want to go for the latter since I think that LL is the best distro that I have ever used. Please, can anyone come up with any suggestions? By the way, I am stuck with lite-upgrade-series3 and I do not know how to install series 4.

Just done my first clean install of 4.2.

A very smooth install.....Nice.

Gz bro! Same here, just finished installation and made the updates. No problems at all, as usual with LL.

I have one issue though, which is not related to Linux Lite but the Linux wireless subsystem.
If you are not from the United States of America, please check what the command "iw reg get" says.
For me it always says either:
Code: [Select]
country 00 or
Code: [Select]
country US which are wrong, since I'm in Europe and
some of you are from other regions. Country 00 is always wrong.

One might think this is not an issue since the wireless network works fine. However, if we are accurate, it is a
legal issue, since every country has it's own legal radio frequencies which are available for civilians.
As I said, this is not an issue with Linux Lite, it is an issue with the Linux kernel, or better yet - the lack of it at
the moment.

I am not going into the details of this thing, since it is very simple to fix. You only need to know the abbreviation
of your country: For example, if you live in France, the abbreviation is 'FR'. It is usually just two letters.
So, assuming that you live in France, you would do the following to fix the regulatory domain:

Code: [Select]
sudo iw reg set FR
And you may then verify that the radio frequencies are correct for domain 'France' by commanding:

Code: [Select]
iw reg get
which should now begin with FR instead of '00' or 'US'


If I may help, please ask in this topic since I seem to be blocked in other areas here

Cheers!
