Post Downloaded ISO before updates
Hi,



Today I saw the following message at the Mepis home page:


"mepisguy: Recently Debian updated several packages in Squeeze, also I updated to Firefox 9. It's all available in SimplyMEPIS 11.0.12, uploaded today."


I think I downloaded the ISO before this message as its only today I saw this message. Should I download the ISO again or use the one I downloaded and after installation it the OS would get updated? Kindly confirm. :happy:

That message has been there for a while, the SimplyMEPIS 11.0.12 isos were released 29 Jan 2012.

If you grabbed the most recent iso when you installed (which looks to be within the last month or so from your posting history) you probably have the 11.0.12 release. Even if you don't, just doing normal system updates with Synaptic should get you the equivalent.

btw, the LiveDVD might show the iso version at the kdm login screen {can anyone else confirm that?}

No, there is no indication of version at either the grub screen, or at the login screen, but if you open a downloaded ISO with ark, you can click on the version file to confirm it one way or another, but then it's a moot point because the name of the ISO is usually a dead giveaway anyway.
