ok, but if I am on lets say a 3.7.2 kernel and with a dist- upgrade will get a 3.9.8 kernel, is it still better to just do a dist-upgrade, and not an upgrade first, and after that do a dist-upgrade, I am talking massive upgrade with maybe 600 - 700 package upgrades, + 60 - 80 of new package installs?  and is it possible to do a sort of "safe upgrade" with apt-get, like you can do with aptitude?

If there is a massive amount of stuff when I want to do a dist-upgrade, is it then better to do an upgrade first, and the dist-upgrade after that?

^very nice jedi, and nice wall 3 or 4 posts above, and congratulations for making your post #500!

Sid is hammering hard right now...

Yeah, just like a fresh Ubuntu release  ;D

Sorry for the offtopic, but could not resist.

Decided to take the leap this morning, despite the grub bug, all seems well, the only thing is that I`ve got a waning that says ;

Code: [Select]
(gtk-update-icon-cache:19095): GdkPixbuf-WARNING **: Cannot open pixbuf loader module file '/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/gdk-pixbuf-2.0/2.10.0/loaders.cache': No such file or directory

This likely means that your installation is broken.
Try running the command
  gdk-pixbuf-query-loaders > /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/gdk-pixbuf-2.0/2.10.0/loaders.cache
to make things work again for the time being.

Googled it. but did not get much wiser, ran the suggested command, have not had any trouble, yet.

Thanks for the updated iso VastOne, downloaded it, so I have a fresh iso in storage to install if I mess things up:)

Mucho thanks jedi, commanded an upgrade, had the grub2 bug warning + it wanted to remove some libgl1 mesa stuff, yeah I chickened out this time, will retry later this weekend.
I do have some very  :'( experiences from when running Sid when Squeeze went stable, so I will try to be a little bit more cautiuos this time.

A little question, could it be an idea to have a sort of pay attention thread here, with be careful when performing update/upgrade today, so users could check/post a warning, maybe scare other Vsidoers to wait a day or two before jumping? Or does it exist? Hmmm that became two questions, oh and have done only one upgrade after the Debian "meltdown", so far so good.

Ooops, the cat sort of escaped from the bag evidently, but hey that is good `n` nice news, have in fact been fantasizing to try Vsido on an old laptop, and now it looks like it will be a reality.
So now I just hope that I will be ready whenever it is ready, too much stuff going on atm, but I am pretty sure it will great. Thanks for these fantastic news even if a bit premature;)

Some weeks later, still running the same install of Vsido, am still impressed by the solid stability so far. Saw that there were a discussion about the installer here, as I remember it was  very
fast, but I had to restart the install a couple of times before I got it right. I can not remember exactly why now.... but on the other hand I am not the smartest kid on this block so there were probably some sort of  misdoing by myself. Will gladly do some testing if you change to the LMDE installer. Installed to an Kingston ssd disk, and have the fastest boot up time ever, 21 seconds, the best I have ever had, at the least that is what the default Conky says. Yeah had been thinking of changing Conky, but it is so discreet and simple that I`ve decided to keep it as it is, yeah I am no Conky tinkerer but appreciate to look at others achievements in the field. Well enough of my mumblings for now, oh am trying out the Statler & Waldorf themes atm, how lame is that?
