LMDE Adventure - Update Pack 3

I have 2-step verification on all my Google accounts. So, when I sign on to a new machine and want to add content to blogger I have to get my Blackberry and get a verification code.  Painful? Yes but I know my accounts are secured from "mugged in London" attacks.

My advice to anyone not using 2-step verification is JFDI. (Just fkken do it)


As part of my testing for LMDE, which by the way is going rather well, I want install all the latest and greatest updates to see if it all hangs together. I tried to install Kernel 3.3.x this morning but the header is marked as bad. I usually use KernelCheck for a custom kernel but it has not bee updated so does not know about 3.x.x yet. Pity.

I then used Update Manager to update all files and all worked OK. One of the features of LMDE is a rolling release using Update packs. The latest is Version 3 and that is being installed as I type. To ensure you are on the latest versions update sources and do an update.
sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list &
Here is my current sources.list

deb http://packages.linuxmint.com/ debian main upstream import backport
deb http://debian.linuxmint.com/incoming testing main contrib non-free
deb http://debian.linuxmint.com/incoming/security testing/updates main contrib non-free
deb http://debian.linuxmint.com/incoming/multimedia testing main non-free


# deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian experimental main
# deb-src http://ftp.debian.org/debian experimental main


# deb http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/debian lenny contrib non-free 


1328 files are coming down and several packages have been removed. The restart will be very interesting.
