Rc1 is release but testing?

so, shouldn’t this:

say something about changing I don’t know; the template and dom0 to “testing” ? ;

I am seeing no : sudo qubes-dom0-update -y qubes-dist-upgrade
I presume it is only in -testing, after engaging testing 1st , the doing dom0 update?

in general how long would this 4.1 likely be till it is “stable” version ?

To answer your second question, the scheduled date to determine whether 4.1.0-rc2 should become the current stable release is 2021-11-29. You can consider that the scheduled release date.

RC1 = Release Candidate 1.

In other words:
Not commercially-supported - but feedback is very very much appreciated :wink:

guess I’d need to know, how to get sudo qubes-dom0-update -y qubes-dist-upgrade ?

maybe its obvious, but be nice to hear it ; it will be upgrade from what I think I have being 4.0.4, never quite sure of that either :slight_smile:

4.1b was sudo qubes-dom0-update --enablerepo=qubes-dom0-current-testing qubes-dist-upgrade

so from this which qubes would you say I am “on”?

.fc25 in the names of packages suggest Qubes 4.0.

so not 4.0.4 ?

if not what do I need to do ?

sudo qubes-dist-upgrade --all

seems my sys-net-disp, is causing it to fail, trending towards a broken system ; though its more my test machine thinkpad T530 legacy install

step 1 for fedora-33, is saying failed to return clean data so ERROR, otherwise OK
…so it exits and doesn’t go to step 2

wondering if I’m going to be able to do step 5 setup efi-grub, since I’ve 2 SSDs one with qubes, one with debian ; not using grub to multiboot?


well after removing templates that failed, and retrying finally sys-net won’t start qrexec-daemon startup failed, so looks like will have to burn a USB installer and reinstall, sigh

not a surprise, reinstall is faster, on the T530, I did choose to make network use USB or so, so now I’ve no sys-usb, so is sys-net what controls USB devices then,

nice to see the sys-net-disp is a config creation choice, can see it as a -dvm though in qvm-pci just says sys-net

not yet a fan of the 3d qube icons, find it visually confusing, maybe I’ll adapt,

thanks qubes team
