Trisquel 9 Mini (my install and some doubt ...)

Hello, yesterday evening I have formatted my eeepc 1001px to make one experiment.
I have made a fresh install of Trisquel Mini 8 with LVM and I changed the sources.list from Flidas to Etiona and so...

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade (around 300 packages to upgrade)

and reboot: all is ok, Trisquel 9 Mini is very fast and I don't have any problem with encryption and so:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade (only few packages to update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade (many others packages to upgrade

and reboot and all is ok, there is some small graphic glitches but Trisquel seems very fast and usable (and perfect for this small eeepc)

but now I have 2 doubt...

Trisquel Mini 9 is not ready yet, as you have discovered. It's not the
end of the world, you're just going to have to stick with some Trisquel
8 packages until it is possible to fully upgrade.

The package manager will only attempt to autoremove packages that were
installed automatically as a dependency of another package. If you want
to be able to run autoremove without a package being removed, manually
reinstall the package.

Many thanks for your answer Chaosmonk
I forget how simple is the solution...
Is only an experiment, Trisquel Mini is one
of the best distro out here

I follow your advice and "autoremove" was safe,
many thanks

This is my sources list, after the first upgrade and the first reboot the sources.list file was empty so I paste this:

# Trisquel repositories for supported software and updates
deb etiona main
deb etiona-security main
deb etiona-updates main
deb etiona-backports main
deb-src etiona-backports main

Today I need to connect my android phone to my netbook and pcmanfm cannot see my phone.
in synaptic all the gvfs packages are installed :/
I have this problem only with my phone and not with the external usb hard disk

now a strange thing happened:
I insert one usb key in the netbook and
pcmanfm mounted without problems...
then I plugged my android phone to the netbool amd pcmanfm mounted it without problems

I once had one Asus eeePC with an Atheros AR2427 WLAN card. It worked smoothly under GNU/Linux, though it's no longer working now.

As long as you don't use it to browse JavaScript enabled webpages, the performance is barely acceptable, roughly as fast (or slow) as my 16-years-old ThinkPad X40 (also equipped with an Atheros card).

My eeepc is 1001px, works well with light distro, and using Midori or Seamonkey I can use JavaScript without problems (i.e. for gmail... please don't bite me...) the last 3 years I always use Trisquel Mini on it without problems, I love it

edit: my netbook is eeepc 1001px 64bit
