how to update to 201807 ? How to confirm that ?

Postby harishkumar » 03 Jul 2018 06:33

Hi,
I am using solydx9 in VBox for a very long time.
All these days, I only use package updater and do the updates regularly, mostly once a week I do the update.
Will it take care of updating to 201807 ?
How to confirm that I have the latest changes included in 201807 build.

thanks,
harish pathangay

The ISOs were built on 1 July. So, when you upgrade now, you will have the same system as you would have with a clean install.

the relatively easiest way, you can check your kernel version and compare with the one on the repo. you can also use other packages as indicator. the command would be,

Code: Select all

apt-cache policy <package name>
simply replace <package name> with the one you use as indicator. you can also use "aptitude -s dist-upgrade" command to simulate your system.

Apparmor setup included? - Probably not.

Arjen, do you have a writeup how you did it? So we could implement it too without reinstall?

Ah, forgot about that...

I just installed these:

Code: Select all

apt install apparmor apparmor-profiles apparmor-profiles-extra apparmor-utils

Hi,
Three Words.

Awesome, Love and Thanks.

I kindly request you not to change the orange -ness of the theme. I love the orange theme so much !!!! Even if new looks comes eventually, please keep the orange theme inside.

I am not that much into secure software hardening and all. So will just skip that.

One the best Rolling Distros ever i have used.

Here are some output. Do Not mistake me for asking simple help. Usually I reinstall OS, since it is rolling I am new to it.

solidex@solidex-vbox:~$ uname -a
Linux solidex-vbox 4.9.0-6-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 4.9.88-1+deb9u1 (2018-05-07) x86_64 GNU/Linux
solidex@solidex-vbox:~$ sudo apt-cache policy thunar
thunar:
Installed: 1.6.11-1
Candidate: 1.6.11-1
Version table:
*** 1.6.11-1 500
500 http://deb.debian.org/debian stretch/main amd64 Packages
100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

solidex@solidex-vbox:~$ sudo apt -s dist-upgrade
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
Calculating upgrade... Done
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.

So is that Fine ?. AppArmor is not mandatory for me. I am not that advanced unix user.
Just needed a confirmation from a helpful group.

thanks and cheers and regards
