• Upgrade


    How often does Antergos rolling upgrade usually occur or am I always
    up to date with software updates?

  • rolling release > https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rolling_release
    If a package/software have an update upstream, it will be rolled out as an update as soon as possible.

    Antergos uses ArchLinux Repo + little Repo from Antergos itself with some packages (mostly packages from PKGBUILDS (AUR) ) and stuff for configurate and update Antergos .

    [antergos]
    and this from Archlinux itself:
    [core]
    [extra]
    [community]
    [multilib]

    So if there is a new Kernel you will get it when it is ready and so on with all packages…

  • I believe you will always be up to date by applying the software updates. As long as you upgrade those at least once a week, you should be good:slight_smile:.

    Keep trying, never give up. In the end, you will find that it was all worth it

  • Yes but need for take care a bit also, if you install stuff from AUR you need update this also:
    yaourt -Syua ones a week will do this job ;)
    If you are on KDE/Plasma may you do not get update info, or on other DE i am not shure about…
    If you use pamac, you may change configuration to also update stuff from AUR then too.

    Yep! If you go into Pamac and click Preferences, turn AUR on, and then enable Check for updates from AUR, you will be good to go! From now on, you will only have to update normally once a week without even using the command line:grinning:.

    Hope this helps!

  • Very informative, I have not yet checked the AUR option, because I note
    here in one of the replies that if I us KDE plasma, it may not apply. I have
    Gnome installed and Budgie but 99% of the time I use the KDE plasma
    DE. I have had zero problems with Antergos and wish to keep it that way.
    Thanks for the replies!!

    If you are on KDE/Plasma may you do not get update info,

    @rosswmcgee , because pamac is a GTK app it doesn t co-operate well in plasma. You have to check its indicator in your start up applications to make it show inside your taskbar. Again, it is not fully functional. It only changes color to show new updates/upgrades. But clicking on the indicator does nothing. If you want it to function as it should, there s the pamac-tray-appindicatorin the AUR. Install it and then go to start up applications to add it and you re Ok.
    Two good tips:

    1. Have the lts kernel installed as a backup in case something breaks in the current kernel.
    2. Check with Arch Linux news to see if anything buggy has been reported.
      Cheers

    @developers this should be installed by default if you choose KDE on the LiveIso or not?

  • And what happens if I install Octopi and remove Pamac?

    You ll get octopi, instead. :angel:

    @joekamprad said

    The common practice is that Qt-based DEs come with octopi & GTK-based ones with pamac. I personally prefer pamac. It s got more features and has a more modern UI. On the other hand, octopi has got the old-school synaptics package manager look and lacks some features.
    Here, you can see a direct comparison and make your own choice.

    yeah :laughing: but, I mean… Octopi brings an update notification? Will I have to install it as it does with pamac?

  • After looking at all the replies it seems I would be advised to do nothing.
    How do I know who’s response is the correct one?

  • @rosswmcgee said in Upgrade:

    hehehe… It depends on whether you are using Gnome or Plasma. If Gnome, then my directions. If Plasma, then @joekamprad and @anarch’s directions.

    I dont see anyone having advised you to do nothing. Your original question was “how often to upgrade”. The answer is, “once a week at least to be safe against breakages”.
    What I myself do? I update/ugrade as soon as I get notified of new stuff. Once, twice, 3 times, even more, depends on the number of notifications I get. Not something hard to do, is it?

    @rosswmcgee said

    You re really lucky, here, because all responses are correct! All in one single place. All you have to do is choose the one that suits your situation best.
    Should you have any more questions, don t hesitate to ask.
    Cheers

    Absolutely yes!. Please check out my previous comment again and also watch the video. If interested, check it out in youtube too, becuse the one I have is not the latest versions and things will have changed

    That s why I said “common practice”. Antergos is not common, is it?:angel:

    *** I guess it takes some effort on behalf of the user to dig deeper. Antergos comes as a nice base. When switched to the Arch architecture I started studying Arch. Then, it was time to study gnome. On the proccess, I found out that there were certain parts of it that I didn t like.Now I m studying Plasma. I still am because it s got tones of things to learn and discover. A good game when I have some free time to spare.
