  • Linux Lite: 4.2 64bit

  • CPU: Core i3-4170

  • MEMORY: 12Gb

  • VIDEO CARD: Intel HD Graphics 4400
After installing Linux Lite 4.4, the initial update list seems to be very long
 and it takes quite a while for the updates to install.

It would be very nice if there were a periodically updated snapshot .iso file
 (perhaps once a month) that would include all the updates.

If you're just installing on your own personal computer, no big deal, but
if you're installing Lite on numerous other computers from time to time,
it would sure be a time saver.

  • MEMORY: 16Gb

  • VIDEO CARD: nVidia GeForce GTX 960


... but
if you're installing Lite on numerous other computers from time to time,
it would sure be a time saver.

In that scenario, just clone the first pc, and copy the clone image to each successive pc. We don't have the resources to do monthly snapshots. Tell half the people visiting our website to stop using frickin ad blockers then we can do things like this :)

It's easy to clone with dd (already installed to ubuntu and linux lite), but be very careful and test this with non important data before trying to clone anything important the command is
Code: [Select]
dd if=/dev/sdx of=/dev/sdy where sdx is the input drive and sdy is the output drive. You can find your drives letters from gparted
optionally you can set the bs value to an example
Code: [Select]
bs=16Mso the command should look like
Code: [Select]
dd if=/dev/sdx of=/dev/sdy bs=16MBut again placing output drive as input drive and input drive as output drive will overwrite your clean just installed system with your output drive so be very careful with this
