Businesses, here's how to schedule the upcoming Major Update for automatic installation at a time you don't need Feren OS Machines.
[Help Wanted] Calling for anyone with NVIDIA Hardware to test out the Major Updater on a non-daily-driver
UPDATE 3: Fixed it, or at least worked around it.
So, here's good news, and also a mandatory "please help me test stuff" message, regarding the Feren OS Major Update Utility, which is coming (hopefully) very soon to facilitate the upgrade to Ubuntu 18.04/Mint 19 for current Feren OS Users.
So, the good news is that throughout all my testing, I can confirm that the utility can now successfully be booted directly into in its own graphical step of the boot process, to make sure that the least amount of damage can be done to Feren OS during the base update, as well as successfully update to 18.04 while keeping all the Feren OS and Mint goodness in the OS, on the following hardware:
- Virtual Machine (Tested in VirtualBox)
- Intel (HP Pavilion dv6 Tested)
- AMD (Lenovo Yoga 510 Tested)
However, here comes the mandatory "please help me test stuff" message: NVIDIA. You might have already noticed that there's a mention of all the common hardwares that Feren OS is known to install on, BUT NVIDIA. This is because of unfortunately I have, as of right now, got NO machines to test which have NVIDIA Hardware on them, and so can't test the Major Updater / Update Process on NVIDIA Hardware, which is where you people come in.
It's great making something for the community that might become quite big and remain for a very long time to continue serving the community and helping Linux as a result.
