64Studio 3.0 Beta 3 Updating

Hello: Long time listener, first time caller..... I just finished installing 3.0 beta 3. Should I leave the repositories in Synaptic alone when I update my system, or should I disable all but the 64Studio ones? I guess what I'm asking is, what sources should be enabled for updating? I appologize if this has already been answered - I looked around here for a long time and never really found a concrete answer. Beautiful distro! Many thanks! zendrum

Helo, I have now 64studio3b3 on my laptop and working fine with my 2.6.31.12-rt21 kernel. It was not easy. But now, i have 847 updates in waiting. ! I know i can't apply. But i don't understand differences between etch, ardy, lenny packages. This is debian, what will happen if i apply ? Hereunder, my repos : deb http://apt.64studio.com/64studio/stable/ 64studio main deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian/ etch main contrib non-free deb http://security.debian.org/ etch/updates main deb ftp://ftp.uk.debian.org/debian/ stable main That's good ? what is the better ? Thank a lot Sylvain

The recommended way is to keep the 64 Studio hardy backports, and ubuntu hardy active. Security updates you can apply, wiht no ill effects (so far) but I do not recommend doing this before an important gig. As long as you keep with the hardy repositories, it is not at all likely to break a 64 Studio package, because these will be the latest packages. Hope that answers your question. Quentin

Hello Quentin- Many thanks for the response! OK, I am gonna bug you just one more time.... Is my updating scenario above the way to go? Which repos do you enable to keep 3.0B3 up to date? My main concern is breaking one of the 64Studio packages with something from Ubuntu. Thanks! Zendrum

Pulse

Pulse audio will be excluded, as it does not gell with studio use (yet) The nice thing about "Remixing" distributions is that you can change the way packages are implemented as well. If you look at 3.0B3 currently, it looks and feels like debian, even though it is built on Ubuntu package sources. The only thing that sticks is the sudo policies, which can be changed as well (as you might have noticed ;-) ) PDK is the distro builder, and will not be accessible to the normal user. I doubt we will move away from Synaptic and apt as the package managers, and will be back ported from debian if needs be. Glad you enjoy it as much as I do at the moment! Cheers, Quentin

Hello Quentin- I'd like to follow up on my question above, after more reading and studying around the 64Studio site. I see that one of the design intents for PDK is to handle this type of updating. When the final Studio64 3.0 is released, PDK will be the update tool. Also, seeing how 3.0 is changing from Debian to Ubuntu, and how Canonical say they are working on an "integrated" package manager, you guys probably have your hands rather full. Therefore, if I have all of that right, I won't bug you any more about this. For now, it seems the best way to keep 3.0B3 up to date is to perform all of the updates from the default 64Studio repo after install, and then to "cherry pick" the Ubuntu updates as needed. I am curious how you guys are going to handle Pulse Audio in 3.0, as it seems to be an integral part of Ubuntu. It looks like the latest versions of qjackctl automatically disable Pulse when Jack starts. Is this correct? Again, thanks for a great distro, and all of your work. zendrum
