Latest Updates To Mageia 6

Postby phillipchandler » May 21st, '18, 19:36

Hello

Im interested in downloading and installing ver 6, but after reading that there is 1300 + updates Im kind of put off. I have limited broadband.

Is it possible for Mageia to produce an ISO ver 6.x which includes all the 1300 updates ?

Thanks
Phillip

Welcome Philip.

That is the plan, install isos with all updates included.
It will be dubbed 6.1
My personal wild guess is it will be available in about one month.

Another take on it is to avoid downloading a large iso at all, instead use the small netinstall iso, and make a minimal installation (maybe use a small DE instead of Gnome/plasma). The installer then only downloads the new versions directly (never download old packages), and when installed and booted you install the big packages.
Mandriva since 2006, then Mageia since 2011 at home & work. Thinkpad T40 T42p T43 T60 T61 T400. Aspire 7. Fileserver. Workstation using LVM, LUKS, VirtualBox, BOINC, Dropbox, CAD, urpmi-proxy, NextCloud...

Due to a failing hard drive, and recently had the mega update, I would like to get a 6.1 installer ISO to.

Is there any word on how this task is progressing ?

Thanks
Greg

Majority of updates goes to KDE stack as it was updated so if you don't use it as DE and don't use KDE tools the number should be significantly lower.
First priority is now tray upgrade and then mga6.1 ISO.

Note that in order to minimize download you can always use Wired Network-based Installation CD. Regarding download quota you can hardly get lower with any procedure of install/reinstall/upgrade.

Thanks for the advice ...
I do use KDE, will look to the Wired Network install method if 6.1 is not available, when my new disk arrives.

I understand that the 6.1 .isos are currently undergoing QA testing (Lives and Classical .isos).
When QA deem them suitable for release, there will be an announcement, likely on the blog.
