that would be correct. and it will always say beta1 because we only change the strings on RC an up.

So if you started with 17.1, it would change to MX-18.

But don't get too worried about it, it literally just a text string for identification at this point, and the main release is still a little ways off.

FYI: mx "test" repo is not the same thing as debian testing repo.

Thanks for the upgrade path!
Upgraded from 17.1 Nov. snapshot. Here it is:

Code: Select all

$ inxi -S
System:
  Host: mx Kernel: 4.15.0-1-amd64 x86_64 bits: 64 
  Desktop: Xfce 4.12.3 Distro: MX-18_x64 Continuum March 14  2018 
Apart from the wrong date, everything seems to be good so far. I will report back if I stumble upon any issues.

Thank you for you your hard work!
Greetings

Before this update I was having an issue with firmware for intel 8260 and I would just like to report that it is fixed with the package firmware-iwlwifi 20180825+dfsg-1. That is the correct firmware for intel 8260 wireless adapter and performance seems to be better also. Just wanted to let ya'll know there is no more dmesg errors about loading wireless firmware.I have to run solely off of wifi so it is a big deal to me when something funny is going on with wifi or anyhting like that. If anyone knows any good tweaks for wireless performance I am open to suggestions.Please someone tell me how to disable services with sysV because systemd is usual way of doing things.

If I remember correctly we decided to leave the date of original installation there this way we'll know if you installed MX-17 and updated to MX-18 or you installed MX-18 directly, it might be relevant for troubleshooting.

something like

Code: Select all

sudo service  "init-service-name" status
sudo service  "init-service-name" stop
sudo service  "init-service-name" start
sudo service  --status-all
also this comes handy to view start/stop service:

Code: Select all

sudo sysv-rc-conf 
Note runlevels 2,3,4,5 are for "normal" operating in differen modes,
in most cases they are either on or off. Normal GUI runlevel is 5.

GeForce GTX 770, Samsung SSD 850 EVO 500GB, Seagate Barracuda 4TB

Things worked fine here, but I don't use Nvidia so I cannot really report on that update.

Q: After the update should people remove or keep the dev repo enabled? I don't think we'll add stuff to dev repo, right?

EDIT, the release name shows correctly for me (maybe it needs a reboot)

Code: Select all

Distro: MX-18_x64 Continuum March 14  2018 
They can deactivate it unless they need some further Mesa and or -dev packages from it that have to match installed versions.

Thanks for the clarification, Adrian! That makes sense.
And thanks for such a great OS! It's a joy to use!

For some reason MX USB unmounter will not stop running. It keeps appearing at boot and I dont know why. I have no USB's even plugged in and it still shows up at boot. I can right click and hit quit and a few minutes later it comes back in the panel.
