Peppermint OS (Debian) Release

The Peppermint team would like to announce that we have released our Debian(bookworm) base. You can download the new files from here.

You can also read about what to expect in this release here

A few important notes:

  • This release is for the Debian base ONLY (The Devuan base will be released later this year)
  • You can upgrade your current Bullseye system to Bookworm, using Debian’s upgrade process. However, we are testing our upgrade tool to help you with this. Our tool also includes an upgrade method for the Peppermint Tools, which the Debian method does not. We will keep you posted as that tool becomes available.

    After installing using BTRFS filesystem the system reboots to a TTY interface. Doing the same with the bullseye release works just fine.

      How did you do that. The RC allows BTRFs but with the release we took it out because it has issues. The release only supports xfs, ext4 and f2fs

      1. Chris

        I did so using the manual partitioning option in order to manually set a smaller boot partition and use BTRFS in order to utilize filesystem compression for space saving and reduced disk writes. The system I’m installing on is a old chromebook with a 16 gigs of soldered storage.

    Installed Peppermint OS on my old computer with i7 and 4 Gigs of RAM. The old Linux mint had to go. Saved all my importand files on a USB-Stick, before i put the new system on.
    All went smooth and i enyoyed the new feeling. The network both cable and wireless were working after a short time.
    Then i installed many of my favourite software on it. Changed the background image to a more chilling one, before i went nuts and updated the kernel from 6.0.9 to 6.0.10. There was a small warning, about a mixup in the comfiguration or something. I hoped for the best and rebooted.

    Could not find the kernel…

    Then i tried different approaches to load a rescue kernel or even a program to undo this mess. I even booted the live system from the usb-stick again and tried to copy 6.0.9 into the /boot directoy as root with thunar. No success.

    I ended this horror with reinstalling Peppermint from the stick and wiped the old peppermint away. sad.
    Could you please put a rescue tool for noobs on the stick?
    Thank you!

    I came very late to this party. I just started installing this “new” or as-of-writing the latest Debian-Bookworm-based Peppermint OS version. I finally am able to replace Linux Mint from my work desktop and, as one who considers himself quite jaded, I’m actually excited with this gigantic leap from kernel 5.10 to kernel 6.1. Previously, I couldn’t get my dual monitor setup to work and now I can! Bluetooth works well with blueman (that’s what i’m currently using but I’m curious as to what the Peppermint OS team prefers here). All the peripheral devices I’ve tested so far actually works!

    I’m so happy I should either be financially contributing to the great dev/direction/secops/maint team or buying one of those apparels hosted at HelloTux.

    Thank you, guys!
