full-upgrade is the same as dist-upgrade
Thanks, good to know. I was afraid l have been doing it wrongly all along.
I thought it's apt's equivalent "apt full-upgrade " to apt-get's "apt-get dist-upgrade"

I originally assumed that the newer "apt" was set up to recognise both dist-upgrade and full-upgrade, while the older "apt-get" would only recognise "dist-upgrade"

But I just tested "sudo apt dist-upgrade apt-get full-upgrade" in MX17/18 and it works as well.

Yes. "apt dist-upgrade" works too.

Snap @asqwerth. :happy:

How about sudo apt-get full-upgrade ...

Correction to my earlier post: I tested

sudo apt-get full-upgrade

and it works as well.

Or "aptitude full-upgrade" ;-)

Quite a few alternatives to upgrade the system then via command line. So all the lines below are equivalent (?):

Code: Select all

apt full-upgrade
apt-get dist-upgrade
apt-get full-upgrade
and the one mentioned above by @nomad:

Code: Select all

aptitude full-upgrade

Can´t install in EFI even that it is boot in UEFI.

In installation no partition is under /boot when you choose were things vill be installed.

Works fine in both Slackware and Arch Linux, but not in MX Linux.

I must apologise I'd thought that the dist part had been discontinued several years ago.

The latest joke of a review:
Version: 18
Rating: 2

I tried a little. I don't like the panel design. I've had trouble with the RTL8187 wifi device. There is a problem connecting to wireless networks. I install legacy-304 driver and restart system, but can't reach to X server. System speed is not bad, but performance is good in Xfce versions of almost all distros. This is not a special case of MX Linux. I do not recommend to a new Linux user. It's just the Xfce version. Not suitable for those who care about appearance. The MX Linux repos is less than the Ubuntu repository. Also, disadvantage of not being able to use PPA repositories.
-> "he tried a little"
-> he didn't have a clue, neither read the manual, not knew that there is a testrepo (which is safer than PPA)
-> nor bothered to find out that MX is based on Debian and definitely has more apps in repos than Ubuntu
- >As for his not liking the panel it's a hit of ridi"cluelessness", few clicks away to have it wherever he wanted, even across his own competent forehead, with or without a logo

!! As for the driver, it's the only point may be of substance, while would be good to know where he got that legacy driver, wouldn't wonder if from Ubuntu PPA
😥

Giving here a 2 after such a "little try" is a nice present...

P.S. Probably could post a review just above his where the issues are addressed concisely
