Tell me more about the new release.
« on: December 22, 2018, 03:00:21 am »
The 21 december release is named respin, so I search the forum and read about orginal spin too.
Since you just can download  this new respin release I suppose this is the one you should have.

What are the difference between the orginal and respin and why can I just download the respin?

I want to upgrade and search forum and find this
https://forum.peppermintos.com/index.php/topic,6320.0.html

Can I use the same guide now or will it break something?

Hi neggard,

https://forum.peppermintos.com/index.php/topic,7843.0.html

That tells you all you need to know about the Respin.

If you are happy with the current version you have, then there is no need to change, unless you have a burning need for an item on the list change list.

I would not use the guide you mentioned as it is very specific to Peppermint 8 to the Pep 8 Respin.

By the very nature in which Peppermint is built, it can be problematic in trying to upgrade. We have always advocated for a new install.  That said, PCNetSpec - May, I repeat May, issue instructions on how to upgrade.

However, Christmas is rapidly approaching and PCNetSpec deserves a well earned break after his endeavors to get the Respin out  :D

A HUGE Thank You to him for that too.

I hope this helps clarify

Hi neggard,

I can give you an answer to one of your questions.  The link below lists the changes Peppermint 9 Respin has made to Peppermint 9.  Read the changes and see if they're important to you:

https://peppermintos.com/2018/12/peppermint-9-respin-released/

neggard, I did a clean installation of Peppermint 9 Respin.  That's why I can't comment about dist-upgrading Peppermint 9.

Anyway, check out the link above.  And, remember, you can always try Peppermint 9 Respin live from a flash drive.  That way you check Peppermint 9 Respin out before deciding whether or not you want to install it.  If you try Peppermint 9 Respin, neggard, I hope you enjoy it.  ;)

P.S.

neggard, here's a YouTube link from English Bob.  EB does an excellent job of explaining and demonstrating the recent changes to Peppermint 9 in its respin,  Kudos to English Bob:  it's a terrific video!

He did and it's for a good cause!  That's one of the many reasons why I love open source. :)

After the holidays I'll post instructions for manually changing PM9 into the PM9 Respin .. anyone currently running PM9 should probably wait for those, in my opinion there is not enough in the respin to warrant a fresh install if you're already running PM9.

Happy holidays everyone :)

Thanks for all the help.
I wait until the guide is out.

Have a nice x-mas.
