Manjaro 16.06 - third preview
« on: 05. May 2016, 20:46:49 »
Hello i want to try and use Manjaro 16.06 - third preview KDE edition but i want to ask something. When the stable version comes out, do i have to install it from the beginning or can i update the preview version to stable version? Thanks!

Manjaro is a rolling release, and you don't need to reinstall again. It will be exactly the same.

Thanks! Also one last question. I see in a video that manjaro kde comes with manjaro settings manager where you can install your graphics driver. I also see in a video that it also setups optimus technology automatically in there which is very good. I just want to ask that since it comes with 4.4 kernel if i change the kernel to 4.5 can i setup optimus tech (bumblebee) in the settings manager again without a problem?

Ahh also do we have manjaro 15.12 kde openRC edition?

thanks!

Once set up (usually automatically) you don't have to do it again. Bumblebee will come with all your kernels, except if you disable yourself.
Cheers,

Thanks d7rk for your fast response!

What about openRC edition? Do we have one?

Also since i am using a brand new laptop with a skylake cpu. Do you recommend me to use linux kernel 4.4 or 4.5?

Thanks!

You have the luxury of Manjaro Settings Manager at your service! You can simply add 4.5 and try which one works better fit you! 8)

ah, oops! I didn't see we're on the KDE train here :-[ ;)
There should be a minimal one by @artoo for sure! I'm not on my computer right now to give you the property link, but it should be on Sourceforge somewhere... :)
