Is it safe to update to Debian 12.6 ?

Presume someone has already taken a shot at it.

Absolutely, it's strongly recommended for Q4OS users to follow Debian upgrades within a Debian edition.

Good to know!

Just double-checking.

Any chance on there being a release date for the next edition of Q4OS?  The last release was in November 2023.

It's now July 2024.  I'd like to see about possibly using Q4OS, but I need a newer kernel for it to work on my hardware.

Thanks.

Should do the trick.

You can also use the Liquorix kernel - https://liquorix.net/ that'll make a difference!!!

Apologies.  I was only going by what I saw on the website before posting.  Thanks, though.

Incidentally, I just saw your announcement that Q4OS 5.5 is actually out, so that's great.

I'm downloading the ISO as I type this.  Hope it works well on my PC hardware.  We'll see ...

Re: Is it safe to update to Debian 12.6 ?

Update:

Tried the live image of Q4OS.  Unfortunately, the 6.1 kernel does not work with my USB WiFi adapter.

On Linux Mint "Edge" edition (Cinnamon), the 6.5 kernel works flawlessly with it.  No problems.  Fast.

I do have another WiFi adapter (Panda Wireless) that should work with Q4OS.  I'll find time to test it later.

Was kinda hoping this release would work "out-of-the-box" with my PC hardware, though.  That'd help a lot.

Thanks for helping.  Very interesting, too, about the Liquorix kernel.  Never heard of it.  Huh.  How about that?

P.S.: Had to delete the links in the quote above.  The forum wouldn't allow me to post links.  (How very odd ... )
