Filed under
Linux

If you’ve been waiting to upgrade your Linux Mint 19.3 computers to Linux Mint 20, the wait is finally over. The Linux Mint project announced today that it’s now possible to upgrade Linux Mint 19.3 installations to Linux Mint 20, but only 64-bit versions.

As you probably know already, Linux Mint 20 is a 64-bit only system. Linux Mint 19.3 was the last release to offer support for both 32-bit and 64-bit architectures. Therefore, you’ll only be able to upgrade 64-bit Linux Mint 19.3 systems using the following instructions.

Linux Mint 20 upgrade path opens up for existing users

  • Linux Mint 20 upgrade path opens up for existing users

    Clem Lefebvre, head of the Linux Mint project, has announced that users on Linux Mint 19.3 (64-bit) can upgrade to version 20 without doing a clean installation. The option is helpful for those who don’t want to re-install and re-configure their systems but it also comes with more risk than doing a clean install.

    According to the announcement, only users with a 64-bit Mint installation will be able to upgrade, this is because Linux Mint 20 is only available for 64-bit systems. If your computer is running a 32-bit version of Mint 19.x you can keep it till it expires in April 2023.

HeliOS is a Tiny Embedded OS Designed for Arduino Boards

Mannie Peterson (aka FellFromTree) has developed an embedded operating system called HeliOS that’s designed specifically for 8-bit and 32-bit Arduino boards, and can easily be used from the Arduino IDE. HeliOS is said to have only 21 function calls and implements cooperative and event-driven multitasking, task notification/messaging, timers, and memory management. It’s a non-preemptive multitasking kernel so you won’t have to deal with mutexes. The developer explains how scheduling works with HeliOS: HeliOS uses a run-time balanced strategy which ensures tasks with shorter run-times are prioritized over tasks with longer run-times. This ensures all running tasks receive approximately equal total run-time without using context switching. The other multitasking option available in HeliOS is event driven multitasking, which uses the wait/notify and timer interfaces. Mixing cooperative and event driven tasks in HeliOS is not a problem.
