Busy at the moment preparing to update Trisquel v9 over rolling v8 - I have no confidence whatsoever in such matters – so scared of messing up my tool of choice, even though I have Rescatux 0.37 on a DVD disc I have no experience with that either or the text based apps even less so.
Used Transmission app to grab torrent from Spanish uni and Brasero to burn a DVD as I didn’t want to overwrite any of my USB sticks or how it would affect my external back-up drive. Worked out very well and booted up from it and took a look around v9 and can see why – impressive as is v8, stable and so easy to use; v9 is said to be more polished and is based on ubuntu 18 rather than 16.
Could I ask our experienced membership what preparations I should do other than backup? When I was running v9 live in RAM I noticed in the menu there was a menu item to install Trisquel v9.0
I have BleachBit installed in v8 should I tidy up or just let Trisquel do everything for me? This surely applies to all distro installations…? Partitions come HDD drive preparations?
I intend to keep this 13 year old HDD rather than dropping in something digital.
Thanks in anticipation…
