    Question Will there be a 6.06.2 release?

    Hi,

    The title says it all really. I was just wondering if there were any plans for this.

    Tony.

    I would say its almost a certainty given that 6.06 is a LTS (long term support release) and will be officially supported for 3 years on the desktop and 5 years on the server. It's only been out 5 months and we already have 6.06.1. Over the next few years I think we'll see 6.06.2 ,.3, .4 ...

    I think that the main reason 6.06.1 was released was because of several flaws in the installer...

    Who knows though

    I think you're right. There was a bug in the installer (for me, it always added a blank proxy to apt, and would never work until I went in and blanked apt.conf). This is gone in 6.06.1.

    Do you know it there will be another LTS version after Dapper Drake? I like the idea of an stable OS (Edgy was to buggy for me).

    Yes, there's going to be another LTS, but I don't believe it's Fiesty.

    I'm apparently behind. What was the bug in the installer?

    Even still, it would be nice for Canonical to release another point release of Dapper once or twice a year so that if someone does a fresh install, they won't have several months or even a few years worth of updates to install.

    There was some MAJOR partitioning problems... not that there still isn't... as i found out at a LUG install day...

    There will be another LTS when it is most suited.

    The next LTS will be Feisty+2

    And apparently there was, but that's the past now isn't it? Said bug has been long since squashed.

    along with some others. the 6.06.0 release's default i386 kernel did not play well with PCMCIA buses on some hardware, leaving me with no networking on one install. Breezy's kernel did, as did a subsequent Dapper, so I ended up installing Breezy and dist-upgrading to dapper instantly.

    No big deal for me, as it was a secondary system, but these are the sorts of things that point releases for LTS distros are supposed to fix. They fixed them, the point release is out there. I am satisfied.
