Is there a way to fully upgrade to a new release?
I have an old AL installation in 3 of my PC’s (probably a 2018 version or so) and I’ve done a pacman -Suy and everything works ok. But some new configs of the last release (like five concurrent download threads in pacman) are not there.
Can I get to update everything in my computer so that it becomes exactly like the new release?
Thanks in advance!
(PS: Is this the right subforum or should I have posted it under ‘Basic Help’?)
I’m running i3-gaps in most of my PC’s.
I was a little doubtful because I recently installed 2022.05.29 release to try it and I saw some differences (like parallel downloads or some new default wallpapers and other ones I can´t remember now) with old updated installations. I was wandering if there were other major changes that I could be missing.
I update my installations quite often, and, except for minor issues, everything is going well. For ‘minor issues’ I mean some orphan packages or missing dependencies which are solved removing unused packages.
That’s precisely why I switched to AL years ago. Other distros used to mess everything on updates. Never happened to me with AL, but I know it could happen sometime.
I know. I greatly appreciate your tips. I usually make a terrible mistake that is not reading release notes before updating . And then I spend a couple of hours wondering what’s wrong…
I used to read a lot here some time ago, but I’m a quite shy guy so I’m not posting so much. Besides, I’m not so fluent in English and I prefer to stay in shadows
But, you’re right, I like this community and feel pretty well reading in here, with people trying to sincerely help so may I need to write more often…
I’m reading right now about windowing servers and Wayland to learn the basics. And when I have a little time (or when I feel like doing it ) I’ll try to get in deep with that. For now, I’m using my sway installation pretty well without major issues. But is a desktop I use for work and didn’t use much time to fine tune it.
