Re: Community ISO maintenance and build issues - 2

The package gvfs-fuse is in the ISO's package list. Apparently something is removing it after installation. Need to find out what... What's creating the virtualbox repo line? The Welcome application? I still haven't found the time to check its scripts for incompatibilities, I'm afraid. I know there ...

Re: Community ISO maintenance and build issues - 2

Both 1 and 3 look like installer issues to me.

About 2: does the kernel recognise the item in question? What do the logs show when it's plugged in?

Re: SolydXK System Settings (GUI for solydxk-system)

Post back issues with /var/log/solydxk-system.log Without it I cannot do much. :( See the attached archive. The log contains even less data than the one palimmo posted... ;) Serious issue: after the application crashed (see screenprint), I noticed the 8th partition on the second drive (/dev/sdb8 ak...

Re: Easiest way to get log files back onto disk

Putting the 'manual' commands in /etc/rc.local works (no sudo, of course...). Still a bit of a hack, but at least it allows you to selectively move bits of /var/log out of tmpfs. It may not work for everything, though. Some services may need access to logs before rc.local is run. I haven't checked t...

Re: Easiest way to get log files back onto disk

Something with a bind mount as mentioned here would seem the most sensible way to go. Using sudo mount in the terminal, remounting the real /var/log/ items outside tmpfs worked like a charm. As a test I did (on a system with all of /var/log in tmpfs): sudo mkdir -p /mnt/var sudo mount --bind /var /m...

Curious. Kernel update held back? I don't have time to check that now. Maybe someone on SolydXK 9 could take a look.

Re: No terminal output available in gnome updater

Only on SSD. Ah. OK. I sincerely hope anyone with an SSD who also has a spinning drive has the sense to move /var/log there. Nearly everyone has a SSD nowadays, they got much cheaper and I've heard that wear is not so much an issue nowadays. Generally, yes. However, I seem to remember reading about...

Is that by default on all new installations or just on SSD? If not the latter, this needs to change.

The idea of putting my logs in tmpfs would make me scream (and move to another distro - and I'm not even joking here...).

4.13 arrived in sid on 2 October, so I would expect it to migrate to testing tomorrow or the day after. Unless some issue shows up, of course.

Re: Installation and disk partitioning (dual boot with win10)

Before I'd do anything with that disk, I'd want to know what GParted and/or fdisk make of it. The Disk Management window only shows 6 partitions, but the last one has number 7. As this is Windows 10 on a UEFI system, the disk must be GPT, so no extended partition, all primary. So where/what is the '...

Yes please. I'm not entirely sure about the SolydK EEs, but I don't expect any improvement either, so we might as well release them as they are.

OK. I just ran the update/upgrade sequence before building the ISOs and the live-installer didn't upgrade as the version number hasn't changed. Edit Both SolydK EEs are almost ready to be uploaded. Should be available later tonight. They include the newer version of the installer, with the same vers...

If I remove debian/source/format (with "3.0 (quilt)" in it) it will build Strange. The dpkg-buildpackage call done by sbuild is essentially the same, but it "just works" with that file in place. It doesn't "complain" as much either: dpkg-buildpackage ----------------- ...

Re: New ISOs in ce/testing

What kind of build environment do you use? I use sbuild (with a buster schroot for this particular build). Before I built 2.9.1.0-0dspk2 I created a suitable source package 2.9.1.0.orig.tar.xz. If I remember correctly, the forum software doesn't accept tarballs, so I'll add a link below in a minute....

Re: New ISOs in ce/testing

The replacement is kdesu. On KDE5/KF5, rootactions-servicemenu already uses that. Unfortunately, it does not have an executable on the path (i.e. no /bin/kdesu or /usr/bin/kdesu). Applications that need it are supposed to call it like this: $(kf5-config --path libexec)kf5/kdesu which should, on a 64...

Re: New ISOs in ce/testing

Just started the upload of the 32-bit and SolydX EE ISOs. They should be available here shortly after 21:00 CEST (the first two will probably be an hour earlier).
Not really tested but at least the live system booted...

The SolydK EEs will tale a bit more work.

Not just yet. I intend to build a new set later this week (SolydX should have mugshot and pulseaudio needs to be fixed for the EEs). I need to think about what to do about the SolydK EEs in more than one way. The kdesudo package is gone forever and I've only briefly looked at the alternative (kdesu,...

Re: Lightdm doesn't run after upgrade {closed}

It's theoretically possible to go from SolydK-8 to SolydK-EE. At least it was when I ran the tests on my solydfixes script (which is in need of an upgrade, so don't try this now...). But that was several months ago and things are getting messy again (kdesudo has just been removed from testing...), s...
