isomarigreetings, just want to confirm that if I keep updating/upgrading my disco installation everyday as I've been doing, will it become the stable versionwhen it's released or will I have to do additional steps?11:14
isomariAfter my last update/upgrade I received this error after the kernel was updated: https://pastebin.com/1k1Sc4iB11:30
isomariHow do I correct this?11:31
lotuspsychje!info linux-image-generic11:39
ubottulinux-image-generic (source: linux-meta): Generic Linux kernel image. In component main, is optional. Version (disco), package size 2 kB, installed size 15 kB11:39
lotuspsychjesounds like the wrong kernel your on isomari 11:39
lotuspsychje!uptodate | isomari 11:40
ubottuisomari: To ensure you have all the latest known patches and security updates for your ubuntu installation, please update with the following command: `sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade`. See also !upgrades and !security; you may also need to run `apt full-upgrade`.11:40
tomreynisomari: your kernel image is failing to be removed due to a syntax error in /etc/default/grub11:56
tomreynyou're welcome to paste the file to a pastebin.11:56
tomreynabout your first question, your installation will continue to get updates and be on par with a proper release in the end. it may, however, have some leftover files in the end you would not have on a fresh installation. and a fresh installation is always the better approach compared to running pre-release software (or upgrading from a pre-release installation).12:00
tomreyni'm not a developer saying this, this is just my experience as a user.12:00
isomarisorry, was away for a bit. Thanks for the responses.12:26
isomariI found the bad line in my grub file. No more errors. Thanks guys.12:28
isomaribtw, I have been updating with sudo apt update and sudo apt upgrade.12:29
isomariapt full-upgrade does nothing. Everything is up to date.12:30
isomaritomreyn: I really would not want to eventually do a clean install. It would involve too many reinstallations of existing packages.12:31
isomariwon't there be a way of cleaning up any residual unwanted packages after the final stable upgrade?12:32
ubottuFor upgrading, see the instructions at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UpgradeNotes - see also http://www.ubuntu.com/desktop/get-ubuntu/upgrade12:35
tomreynisomari: how would "It would involve too many reinstallations of existing packages" be an issue?13:23
tomreynyou can just store the list of installed packages to a file, then restore it to your new installation.13:23
isomaritomreyn: Sorry I was away. I've been using Linux since 2000. Each time I have to clean install many days getting everything just right. It has never been as easy as you make it seem. However, since I starting upgrading, I've had no down time trying to reconfigure my system.17:31
isomarialso, not all packages are install throught apt.17:32
lotuspsychjeisomari: you updated from 18.10?17:32
isomarigetting all my developement environment back is another hassle.17:33
isomariyes I updated17:33
lotuspsychjeisomari: its reccomended before final, you help us testing with clean daily's17:34
isomariAs fate wold have it, I plan on getting a new laptop so I may not have any choice.17:35
lotuspsychjeisomari: alot of the volunteers on 19.04 help test on a VM too17:36
lotuspsychjeits a quick way to help test bugs out17:36
lordcirth__By the way, Hashicorp's Packer is really great at taking you from an ISO to a VM image automatically.17:37
isomariI've nbeen using disco for some time now and I've had no issues whatsoever. Except my network but that issue was before I upgrades.17:37
isomariI use my system for everything including my development for work. No Issues.17:38
isomariI update/upgrade everyday at least once.17:38
lotuspsychjeisomari: you can do what you like with your systems mate, just saying we try to avoid having the developers get 'extra' unneeded work for example fishing out upgrade bugs17:38
isomariBut usig it everyday I am testing. That's whay I'm telling you that I personally have had no issues.17:39
isomaribTW, when is stable due for release?17:58
lordcirth__isomari, the 18th https://ubottu.com/y/dd18:00
isomarilordcirth__: thabks18:22
tomreynisomari: Sorry I was away. Are you familiar with OS deployment solutions / frameworks then? I could imagine someone like you who wants to make sure they get exactly their preferred well defined state again to love it.20:02
tomreynThis said, with a 20y linux experience i'm sure you'll be finde with the early disco installation.20:03
