Hi all,

Just wondered if I need to disable the devrepo now after the upgrade from 17.1 to 18 beta. Sorry if it has been asked and answered already.

cheers

we are still pushing updates, but you can disable if you want. everything will eventually hit main.

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

Upgraded my Dell Precision M6400. Everything works so far. I will keep repository open for now for kernel update.
Did not lose anything.

Prior to migrate, made snapshot of uptodate
MX171-Horizon-x32, just in case.

Have achieved similar results with
/etc/apt/sources.list.d/devrepo.list
on Acer Aspire One, AOAZG5, netbook
with 150 GB HDD (see hardware in Sig).
Installed the Debian backport 4.9.0-8-686
kernel. Configured MX18b1x32p
for myself, then made a snapshot.

Installed snapshot onto EeePC-1005HA
(see hardware in Sig) Only slight differences
to adjust. Both working as expected.

Looking forward to MX18 release.
Thanks.

If you want to test the 4.19 kernel, it's available if you search in Synaptic for "4.19.0-1" and install the linux-image.

Thanks Stevo. I'll go look for the 4.19 kernel.

I just applied the "/etc/apt/sources.list.d/devrepo.list" migration to the T430. Made an uptodate MX171-Horizon-x64 before. :)
And now, running MX18b1-Continuum-x64 with very few tweaks required, mostly cosmetic [Notes below]:
Most things in the Notification bar were set back to defaults, dates, colors, temps, etc. Usually change them anyway. :)
Oddly enough, it feels like a new install. Seems quicker, but probably just me.

I upgraded the kernel per instructions and everything is still working. The only non-working item is Plymouth customization on boot, I expected that as it is a combination of two images.

I agree with Richard, MX18 seems a little faster to me but I have no objective measurements. Great job by the Devs. THANK YOU
