Linux Mint 15 'Olivia' Released
Website / Download / What's New / Release Notes
Linux Mint 15 is the most ambitious release since the start of the project. MATE 1.6 is greatly improved and Cinnamon 1.8 offers a ton of new features, including a screensaver and a unified control center. The login screen can now be themed in HTML5 and two new tools, “Software Sources” and “Driver Manager”, make their first appearance in Linux Mint.

what do you reckon my chances of an inplace upgrade are?

apt dist-upgrade seemed to work fine after changes the sources.list
anyone needed to get vmware workstation to work there is a nice easy script here
installation - VMware 9 install not opening after extraction on 13.04 - Ask Ubuntu

driver manager looks like its for proprietary drivers only, not ones that come with the kernel

I've just done an in place upgrade and it appears to have gone without issue, even though I use Kubuntu backports (for the latest version of KDE 4), steam, playdeb, and google chrome repos.

Just used apt dist-upgrade and seems to have worked fine.

inplace upgrade worked reasonably well for me, few driver issues but nothing that wasn't easily fixed

eth0 doesn't seem to work, but i haven't put a lot of time into as i normally use wlan0
gets a connection light, just the operating system never see or reports the link is up.. weird.
might look into it next time i need eth0

has the network config been changed as in the later versions of centos for example you have to manually set the LAN to come up on boot.

ifup / ifdown doesn't work its done through NetworkManager the interface is enabled in the "control panel" for networking.

Nautilus stopped auto-starting after I upgraded. Pretty blank desktop until I figured that out.
3rd July 2013, 10:15 PM #12
and tell me what happens
sudo service networking restart

Thanks for the delayed response! Restarting networking or the whole machine didn't help, I had to check a box somewhere to make nautilus auto-start. I hate to say it, but windoze updates don't tend to stop the desktop starting up properly..!

What is it like for Steam? Quite simple and smooth gameplay out the box?
