Re: Solydxk-system hangs indefinitely on the orange splash screen

Wouldn't grub-mount (https://www.gnu.org/software/grub/manua ... mount.html) be useful here? True read-only mount, no root necessary if the destination has the right owner (except for unmounting, apparently).

Re: Community ISO maintenance and build issues - 2

Shouldn't that be:

Code: Select all

deb https://repository.solydxk.com solydxk-ee main upstream import
or

Code: Select all

deb https://repository.solydxk.com solydxk-ee main upstream import testing
for EEs, depending on whether or not the solydxk testing component is used?

Re: Community ISO maintenance and build issues - 2

No idea. Before I added synaptic to my build script's 'not-unavailable' list, I got this: .... The following packages will be REMOVED: icedtea-8-plugin* icedtea-netx* icedtea-netx-common* linux-headers-4.19.0-2-amd64* linux-headers-4.19.0-2-common* linux-image-4.19.0-2-amd64* openjdk-8-jre* openjdk-...

Re: Update error

Not seeing anything like that here. The entire update went without a hitch.

I notice 'Read only file system' in your error messages. Could the drive have developed some kind of fault? Or a mount error?

Yes, this is the right place and yes, I noticed synaptic was removed, but only just. I had planned to mention it here. You beat me to it... :D

I'm not sure adding anything to the bug report will help. Gnome developers don'ŧ care about what other people think, in my experience...

Re: SolydXK 201902 released

The installer worked just fine, but it didn't keep the «labels» I entered. I had to correct that after the installation (gparted). Curiously, that is something I thought I noticed as well, during one of the tests. But the next time I did an installation, everything worked as expected, so I didn't m...

Re: Testing ISOs 201901

Installed SolydK OK. Curiously, when the ISO finally came up, it did not show the same scaling issues as the SolydX one (trying to fit all of a 1920 pixels wide screen into a 1500 pixels wide window).

Re: Testing ISOs 201901

Wouldn't surprise me if it was a VBox issue. It certainly wouldn't be the first time. I'll see what happens if I wait a bit longer (only waited for about two minutes).

Re: Testing ISOs 201901

SolydK ISO doesn't show anything in a VM. Just a black screen. I thought it hadn't even booted, but apparently it had, because it responded to the shutdown signal when I wanted to switch the VM off. SolydX looks OK. The scaling is completely off in non fullscreen modes, but that looks like a VBox is...

Sorry for the late reply - I've been unexpectedly busy elsewhere. I had planned to run some more tests, but that didn't work out. I'll try to find the time Friday. Except for this one (which will have to remain 'unfixed' for now, as I haven't been able to figure it out yet...), I'm not aware of any ...

Re: Testing ISOs 201901

If Grub mustn't be installed, do I have to purge these from the system? grub-common grub-efi-amd64 grub-efi-amd64-bin grub-efi-ia32-bin grub-pc-bin grub2-common That will also remove usb-creator, so I'm not sure if that's a good idea. I haven't checked what causes the grub files to appear in /boot/...

Re: Dual-Boot Solydx vs windows 10

Probably if you install (update) Windows 10 will need to install SOLYDX again. Reinstalling GRUB should be enough, unless Windows 10 messes up big time and overwrites partitions it shouldn't touch. You will need a CD ROM or USB stick with a live system though, preferably with the same version of GR...

Re: Package Updater issue

Not just the package updater icon. On another recently installed SolydX EE several other icons don't show up either (but they do show up on my main machine). It may be a theme issue or GTK3 may be messing things up again. I haven't been able to track it down yet.

Re: Testing ISOs 201901

This is about the installer rather than the ISOs as a whole, but the installer is an essential part, so I thought it best to mention this here. A couple of weeks ago I did a somewhat unusual installation on a friend's machine and things went a bit weird. I figured that was because of the unusual set...

Re: !! Firefox !! -- Form Background -- 02.09.2019

Thank you for the insight. Is there a specific area of the CSS directed at firefox? It depends on what you want to achieve.

Re: !! Firefox !! -- Form Background -- 02.09.2019

As far as I'm aware, there have never been deliberate changes to firefox's form field backgrounds in SolydXK themes, so I'm not sure what caused the non-white backgrounds in the first place. However, if this is a form on a webpage you control yourself, it should be possible to get the desired effect...

Six new ISOs. Just started the upload. They should be available here in one or two hours. Not tested, as usual. I'm not sure about the quality of the SolydK EEs. I tried the 64-bit one briefly in a VM and it was more sluggish than usual. Could be a VirtualBox issue, as running the SolydX EE 64 one a...

Re: Install EE now to change to new-stable as soon as it's out

It's ok to change the sources to buster now, but there's a package solydxee-info which shouldn't exist on a stable system. If I remember correctly all it does is cause solydxk-system to skip adjusting sources.list. That means you can't remove it now, or sources.list may get messed up (i.e. set to th...
