3.2 update apps vs USM

New features which should be implemented in Porteus; suggestions are welcome. All questions or problems with testing releases (alpha, beta, or rc) should go in their relevant thread here, rather than the Bug Reports section.

3.2 update apps vs USM

Post#1 by Ed_P » 21 Oct 2016, 03:03

With the new 3.2 update apps, update-firefox, update-flash, etc, will USM be tweaked to prevent the same updates being done through it? If I start USM and search for Flash will it automatically run the update-flash app? Or issue a warning that it won't be compatible with 3.2? Will USM support for previous releases be dropped and it converted to solely 3.2 support?

No.

It is compatible.

Yes

Once Porteus v3.2 is released I will only support this version.
