SolydXK 10 update script for 32bit CE

Postby mazzinia » 22 Dec 2019 16:25

Are there plans for a similar script to update from 9 i386 to 10 i386 (when the 10 is finalized anyway) ?

Probably not. I don't think grizzler will invest time into a system that is rarely used any more. As you can see here: viewtopic.php?f=78&t=7015&p=69934. I'm wondering why he hasn't published the promised last 32bit ISO yet though ... you can download it from https://downloads.solydxk.com/ce/testing/ but I don't remember the state the ISO was in. I don't test 32bit.

Please check whether you really need 32bit - you might if your system is really ancient or Atom-based but most systems sold in the last 15 years can operate with 64bit.

If you want to upgrade your system you can always do so manually. Have a look at what the script for 64bit does. You can ignore the part where we purge packages. Since I'm never upgrading (I'm doing parallel installs instead) I'm hesitant to recommend a course of action, but maybe somebody else can.

The 'last ISO' is still in ce/testing/ because - as far as I am aware - nobody has tested it.

I'm not aware of anything 64-bit specific in the update script.

Thank you to both of you for the answers (and sorry if I didn't reply more quickly).

So, if I ever want to risk it, I could use the very same script ( good to know, will have to download it ).
@ilu , the target system is an "old" laptop ( thinkpad x31 in the rare variant made in japan ) that I'm sentimentally attached to ( if I can use this term ). With version 9 that old cpu is very snappy and usable, even manages the new youtube videos

You might be better off staying with SolydX9 if at all possible ... I can't give you a valid reason, just gut feeling. Debian9 will get support until 2022.

If you upgrade please tell me whether my gut was right or wrong!

Oh well, I don't have a strict reason to upgrade ( and risk a speed reduction, if this is your fear )
