Re: Lubuntu Trusty daily update choices misconfiguration
(00:35:30) phillw: darkxst: it appears that 14.04 repo's for updates
include 'proposed', this is not a good idea. It also appears that it cannot
be turned off as a repo area using GUI and needs CLI
(00:36:21) phillw: you can look in your apt area to see if this is the case
for U-GNOME :)
(00:38:56) darkxst: phillw, synaptic just launches software-properties to
edit repos doesnt it?
(00:41:01) darkxst: all my trusty VM's have proposed enabled on purpose,
let me check a fresh install
(00:41:50) phillw: darkxst: yup, just an GUI, but proposed is enabled by
default. Which is an oversight.
(00:44:08) darkxst: phillw, I can disable proposed from software-properties
