[myHD News] Ubuntu 18.04 will come soon

Postby father.mande » Fri Apr 12, 2019 1:12 am


Just to inform you :

After some battle :roll: :lol: (certainly due to my poor expertise :oops: ) I have started a first beta of myHD running an Ubuntu 18.04
... even for the user point of view it's not a big change, the interest is :
... ... have updated library (for ex. Video Acceleration is now v. 2.x ... so with better performance)
... ... updated libraries, updated tools
... ... some applications can't run in 16.04 (due to dev. choice) ... with 18.04 all run as expected (ex. stremio can run only as an AppImage (or extracted ... I provide squashfs kernel module) in 16.04 WITH a none updated version ... BUT can be installed (so easily update) in Ubuntu 18.04

I will run some test before proposing a Beta ... especially due to the kernel level of Asustor NAS.

For USERS ... 18.04 can be installed in parallel (separate) with 16.04 ... so testing or using it (one at a time) permit with a zero delay command to switch from one to the other
... I will start writing, how you can transfer settings from 16.04 to 18.04 ... to retrieve your own environment.

stay tuned.
