Mint 17.1 upgrade launched.

Simple. Update Mint Update.
Click Edit/Upgrade
follow on screen instructions.
It leaves the kernel as is, but that can be upgraded using the Update tool under View/Kernels.

Re: Mint 17.1 upgrade launched.

Under a VM you can't get compiz running if you use the Mate version (like me) but otherwise should be the same as a normal install. It includes the VB drivers by default.
Did an upgrade on my laptop, it rebooted and had issues with running sabnbzdplus, another reboot and it all works fine.
On this pc I did a fresh install as I was installing an SSD, so I have the original 17 install on my hdd if I need to switch.

I think it should work in VirtualBox (compiz / emerald worked for me on the Fedora 20 MATE spin).

Re: Mint 17.1 upgrade launched.

The release notes say it doesn't but I haven't tried it. You would probably need the 3d option set (experimental) for the vm.

I got Mint 17.1 installed on Virtualbox at work and all is fine & dandy  Smiley
Also put the installed image onto a memory stick and have it running on home PC now too Smiley
