Linux Mint (Debian) 201109 Tests

Filed under
Linux

I have written about Linux Mint enough times, and recently enough, that I don't think it is necessary to re-hash all of the advantages again here. I will only say that Linux Mint is in my opinon one of the absolute top two or three Linux distributions in terms of quality, content, support and continued development.

I have installed the new release from scratch on pretty much everything that I own right now - including my trusted old friend the HP 2133 Mini-Note. The details of those installations might be of interest to others, so I will include them here. But before doing so, let me say very clearly one more time, so there can be no misunderstanding, the "problems" that I mention below are nothing more than a fly in the ointment. With the exception of the "ClickPad" on the HP Pavilion dm1, every one of them could be fixed in a minute or less, and I consider the ClickPad to be an HP (Synaptics) problem, not a Linux problem.

Rest here

LibreELEC (Krypton) v8.1.2 BETA

This is the third beta for our 8.2 release. It addresses minor findings related to the Samba bump: we now detect and avoid invalid Samba v3 configurations, old samba.conf.sample templates are overwritten with the new v4 template, and remote SMB shares are mounted using SMB2 or where possible SMB3. The release also adds support for the Raspberry Pi IQAudIO Digi+ board and a Xiaomi BT remote, and includes security fixes for the Blueborne Linux/BlueZ vulnerability. This is hopefully the final 8.1.x beta release; next will be 8.2.0. Read more
