In Topic: Upgrade procedure when new Ubuntu LTS comes out?

01 July 2017 - 07:05 PM

Maybe you are also new to the concept of NOT upgrading? 


But Jeff has done all this hard work!  Seriously, though, one reason to upgrade is that it appears (based on admittedly limited research) that older versions don't up updates to the latest application versions (e.g., LibreOffice). So the compelling feature for upgrading might be that.

thank you so much for bringing those posts back to light. i had vaguely seen some info on this, but lost it in my list of "must bookmark everything!" :)


Yeah, bookmarking only gets you so far. I make a lot of use of web forums' capabilities to reconnect me to my previous posts.


OTOH I wrote a comment to something on FB I'd love to have kept a copy of but all my attempts to re-locate it have gone for naught!

Welcome, calinb, hope you find Bodhi to your liking.  My one pre-installation recommendation would be to read Jeff's and Charles' material on setting up a separate data partition. It was pretty easy to do and seems likely to be a long-term time saver.


You can find the relevant links in this post of mine.  http://forums.bodhil...w-installation/


Have fun.

In Topic: Difference running Bodhi in VB and actual install

20 June 2017 - 11:29 AM

As birdmun said, the hardware the VM presents looks different than the actual hardware and will be much more generic. My semi-informed speculation would be that you mostly like either have a kernel issue or a driver issue. I'm nowhere near wizard enough to really help diagnose, but the first thing I'd check would be the kernel versions between the Mint that works OK and Bodhi that's glitchy. If they're the same, then it's almost certainly something to do with hardware drivers.

Meanwhile, I recently learned about Manjaro Linux, which is a rolling release distribution based on Arch. I'd left an empty partition to let me dual boot Bodhi with another distro, and I think I've finally found one I'd like to play with.  I'd been thinking of CentOS because there's lots of RHEL in the work environment, but I just couldn't get too excited about it. This is my play machine, after all.   :D
