I keep getting notifications that Ubuntu has a new release '22.04.1 LTS' available.
Has anybody sone an Ubuntu release update to 22.04.1 with WeBWorK 2.16?
Is there anything special about it or is it similar to regular updates?
I have updated my development machine to Ubuntu 22.04, but have not done so on my production servers. I plan to to that during the winter break though.
It is mostly straight forward to upgrade and use with WeBWorK.
However, there is an issue with the Ubuntu libdbd-mariadb-perl package. The Ubuntu package is failing to build, and so it is not available in the Ubuntu repositories. So you will need to install DBD::MariaDB directly from cpan if you use that database driver. To do this, first install the Ubuntu package libmariadb-dev with "sudo apt install libmariadb-dev", and then run "sudo cpanm DBD::MariaDB". It is possible I am missing a dependency here.
Thanks for pointing this out. The last time I upgraded the server it had
an older version with mysql and I was afraid to change to MariaDB. I
will definitely try to change to MariaDB (first on a test machine).
