I feel like I have been around and around in circles since LM21 "stable" was released.
to summarise, using the update manager was problematic....maybe it was just me?!....perhaps I was not holding my tongue in the right position?....who knows!?....I guess it really comes down to who cares !
I had problems with a usb stick in the middle of it all....I ended up running fsck on the nvme drive which lm21 was installed on and a multitude of errors presented themselves.Scrubbed that install....threw the usb stick across the room.
Fresh Install. Using a freshly burned iso on a fresh usb stick.
Install went flawlessly. Just like @charlie.corder
's ....swift and to the point.
Then of course the various apps and stuff that I use every day has to be reinstalled from Software Manager. I had written a list.
A4 sheet of paper...fairly full. I did not observe line spacing so it maybe consumed half of the page.
Installing & setting up the various apps that I use took a long time....too long....enough to tick me off.
What am I talking about ?
brief, not all encompassing list
Set up twin monitors....panels, icons on panels, (not for the faint hearted) set up update manager/software sources,
Take care of little inconveniences like my sdd filling up from errant logs....kernlog and syslog in particular.......Also repair the fact that brave now wants me to "log in/forgotten gnome keyring password" each and every time I open it.
All good fun
Runs like the wind.
Totally stable. (Having said that, I still have a full Disc Image of LM20.3 on an external hard drive.....and a full Timeshift snapshot of same....just in case things go south. I do not really think they will....but ....I have been bitten....hence the double surety)
I can't think of anything else to inform about.
