I've recently installed Bodhi 4.5, which I need for the legacy Nvidia 304 driver. I need to stay on the LTS kernel for this Ubuntu-16-based distro. With Ubuntu, which I also am running, I can update safely as I started out with the LTS version. I am now up 16.04.7, and all is well, no newer kernels have been installed, which would essentially break my system, as they would not allow the 304 driver, and open-sourced drivers are not sufficient for my graphics (Nvidia 6150se).
Which Bodhi upgrade command should I use to ensure I stay on the LTS kernel version of Bodhi: Update, Upgrade or Dist-Upgrade?
Well I took a chance and went ahead with the Dist-Upgrade command. It went OK except for a time-out error, so I did it again and that seemed to do it. I am now on kernel 4.13, and still have the Nvidia driver 304, so it seems that you can have that on kernels past 4.4. However, 4.13 is EOL, where 4.4 is super LTS, supported until 2026.
When I installed, I was hoping to install Bodhi 4.0 or 4.1, to stay on that kernel (4.4). But I could only find downloads for 4.5.
I do have one issue after the update, but it involves graphics so I'll post it in the appropriate sub-forum.
