My brother Jim, frustrated by the last Windows virus that hit his EEE PC, had his son Mike wipe the hard drive and re-install. He also asked to have PCLinuxOS installed. He's seen me using my Notebook at the office and figured it was time to step up.
Anyhow, Mike instaled as a dual boot. he gave it to me to update. Do I have to update synaptic first? I recall having to do that a few weeks ago. also, I'm assuming that repos need tobe updated, as well? I'm pointing him to heanet (default)
Also, would it bea good idea to install XFCE, as well? I figure two lightweight DEs might make life easier if something happens. Besides, he can choose which one he prefers.
BTW, LXDE looks wonderful on this EEE PC! I want one!:)
EDIT -- I was referring to the aptupgrade. Hmmm.. I thougth I diditon my desktop already. Looks like it is not installed. Maybe I did it on my notebook only?Isthereanotherwayto tel?
Anyhow, i guess I should do this update before any other on my brother's netbook?
