Hello, can I update to 5.0 from 4.8 version?

If you read the first post it clearly state that
Quote
There is no upgrade to or from RC releases. RC releases are for testing only and it is not recommended to run them as your main or secondary operating system.
So no, you can't and you shouldn't.
Without each others help there ain't no hope for us :)

Weird bug now appears after successful OEM install, /etc/apt is removed. Will keep a close eye on it.

  • Kernel: 5.x

Balena Etcher (v1.5.81 portable on Windows 7) failed to produce a bootable USB stick from the ISO :-(.  Showed "ubuntu" twice in the F12 boot menu but both items booted the existing 4.8 install.  Insult was added to the disappointment by the size of the download...


I'll try this again on my Windows 10, see if I get the same result. Last time was fine.


Rufus (v3.10 portable on Windows 7, default options) produced a USB drive that showed up as something like "USB UEFI Mass Storage" (didn't write down the exact text) in the F12 boot menu, which when selected booted up to the live environment from the USB drive (so the 32bit UEFI worked! Yay!).  Started installation and that went all the way through until a failure to grub-update the internal eMMC drive was reported.  I had selected to manually manage partitions so as not to disturb the existing partitioning arrangement (the ext4 & swap partitions were set for reformatting however reformatting the UEFI System partition was not offered as an option) so this may have contributed to the failure.  After the grub-update failure message a window was displayed indicating that a problem report would be submitted said window was closed, however that window could not be closed.  I didn't have any network connected when this happened but after plugging in a USB to ethernet adapter (TP-Link UE-300 which has worked for previous LL installs) the situation didn't improve (not that I really expected it to).  I rebooted, getting the expected message to remove the installation medium, and arrived at the minimal GRUB prompt.  I won't have time until next weekend to try again (this device at the moment is a test hack not a daily driver, so resolution not urgent).

NB: Rufus detected a version discrepancy with several SysLinux files between what it had available and what was used in the ISO and requested permission to download the matching files - when approved the download proceeded and writing the flash image commenced.


Rufus isn't officially supported so I'm going to skip over this.


Bonus outcome from this RC: this notebook's keyboard and touchpad both worked with the live environment without any fiddles = a huge advance from 4.x! :)


Nice :)


Incidentally my ISP's routing to OSDN resulted in a download speed averaging only about 100kB/s and it failed to complete several times :( - fortunately Firefox (Win7) was able to resume the download each time and the final ISO passed the hash check.  This is worse than other recent OSDN downloads I've had which averaged 200-250kB/s (still not great, but at least those downloads - of similar size - succeeded).

See my earlier screenshot.

If you are on Windows 10 and on Wi-Fi, there is a problem with some 1903 / 1909 installations related to RSC. Google it if related.
I will not post procedure here but Wi-Fi can slow down / cut. A physical reboot of the computer can resolve this temporarily sometimes.
I did not see the problem on Linux Lite ;)

I'll have to try this out later this week on a couple of my machines at my one man computer repair shop.

Trying to get more and more people hooked on linux.

MSI Laptop - Intel 9300h and Nvidia 1650, or 1660, forget which gpu.
Alienware Laptop - Inte 7300hq and Nvidia 1050ti

And some VM stuffs of course.

Trying to decide what to use at work, KVM, XCP-NG, or VMWare?

Fun fact. 69 of the approx. 130 LL 5.x computers uploaded to the Hardware Database to date display UEFI. So, just over half.

Once LL 5.x is released I will be testing and using the OEM install on several newer machines, and setting them up to UEFI dual boot with Windows 10. These are welcome features to me and many users friends/clients that I steer into Linux. I will order a couple of DVDs soon as well and do a few network installs as well. Over time I will write some tutorials on those processes. I'm very excited about the new release.

I've put a lot of hours into the OEM side of things because it can really help us grow. I've written clear tutorials for both company and customer and even hacked the Ubuntu code to fix some of their issues and made it 100% LL branding. You're gonna love it TC.

Burn to USB via dd worked fine. Install alongside 4.8 and Win10 was flawless. I have been using it daily for a week now and the only issue I have found is on the lock screen. The buttons for Switch User and Cancel are whited out. Picture archive attached.

on my Asus "Linux Only" 64bit desktop PC, i looked over my bios settings, i see UEFI, found  secure boot, its enabled, but dont show how to disable it, only shows two choices  "windows or Other" , not going to disable this right now, but might when 5.0 "final" comes out , so the question i have is , do i set it to "other"  ?, as a way to disable it ?.

Have you installed Linux on your mac before? What year and model is it?
