Update LMDE disk images monthly or every other month to contain all the updates.
I installed linux mint kde almost on the day it was released, after the install I had already 300+ updates!! That's way too many.
Great idea. Promoting.
Good point RayWoods
Create so called point releases in LTS versions to ensure that the LTS version works on newer hardware and doesn't necessary have to download a huge amount of updates when freshly installed.
why was this rejected?
Slažem se potpuno.
While this would be a good idea, and convenient, the problem is the time it takes just to make the iso images, and the resources required to do so. When a new version is released, we are already a little bit behind Ubuntu, which Mint is based off of, and then we are working ideas for the next release already, and in a 6 month release cycle, there really isn't much time to work on the next release, and make new iso images for the current one.
Like the idea, Not all has a large connection, it would help those people out a loot.
Yeah, with this one, we will save a lot of time at the installation process.
Well, lets face it. We are not the only ones that have that problem. I installed SUSE in about 10 minutes then for the next hour it was downloading the updates. Crazy!
I agree it would be nice.
i agree for lts
but i think a netinstall would be better for normal releases (as the dev have enouph troble with 6 month cycle)
I think, in the case of Long Term Support versions this proposition still stands as the ISO file will be way out of date once they are mothballed. Let's face it Mint 5, from Spring 2008, has just come to the end of its life. (April 25, 2011.)
Fine idea, but I am not sure if there are resources for that. Priority should always be present/future editions.
+1 if there are volunteers who can do it, so clem's team can focus on developing
Linux Mint would need more developers to make it happen
Volunteers could do that and submit the ISOS to Clem
for quality control. Am i a volunteer? No, because i wouldn't
know how to deal with the business.
I think this is a great idea, happened with me!
(250 available updates to download! WTF!?!?!)
Das wahre sehr gut.
Excellent idea Ray! (y)
