(solved) Upgrading existing version?

PostPosted by sc954rr » Mon Apr 03, 2017 2:07 am

Since this is my first run at using openbox setup so far loving it, I was curious since this is based on Arch with all the new updates coming out will it automatically update through Pacman or will we have to download ISO and re run process?

Archlabs is based on Arch. So it is a rolling release. Just update like you normally would do.
I have here Arch SSD over 3 years old.
No need to reinstall.
We will however fix issues, change menu's and add keybindings. In that regard a reinstall will give you a fuller Archlabs experience.

Thanks Erik for information, is there plans to make archlabs a rolling release also like say kde, gnome etc that updates will show up in pamac or will it always be an ISO image to download to get all the latest fixes, keybindings etc.

Hi sc954rr, I think that erikdubois answered your question with his response. You have a rolling release with +3, just update your install as normal. All yuor packages will be updated. But if you want bug fixes, and changes, you will have to reinstall the new iso +4 when it is released. :)

We have a repo in place now so hopefully we can keep to a rolling release for the ArchLabs side of things.
