Weird. Don't see that here. If it reaches the desktop, it logs in automatically.

Re: New ISOs in ce/testing

Yup. SolydX EE 32 on a stick and my old laptop goes straight into a working desktop.

VBox issue.

Re: New ISOs in ce/testing

Odd. In safe mode, both SolydX EE 32 and SolydK EE 32 end up in a working desktop in my test VM. The window doesn't switch to normal size, so something's amiss with the guest additions, but otherwise I can't see anything wrong with it. That's in safe mode only. Normal mode hangs on a black screen. S...

Re: New ISOs in ce/testing

Makes sense, if both have bits missing in the same 32 bit package (not saying that's the case, but...). I'll take a closer look at this tomorrow. Thanks for checking so far.

Re: New ISOs in ce/testing

Just started the upload of all four EE ISOs. Should be available here later today. As usual, I haven't really tested them, but I did try both 64 bit ones in a VM and they seemed OK. The SolydK one even showed a desktop in less than a minute, so the extremely show startup problem seems to be behind u...

Re: New ISOs in ce/testing

Sorry, nothing new yet. Just a note explaining my absence a bit. Five years ago my main (ARM based) RISC OS computer died. I had been programming for RISC OS since forever, but while the OS was considered quite advanced at one time, it really hadn't kept up. So when I was faced with the choice, I de...

Re: Community ISO maintenance and build issues - 2

Hadn't looked at that yet. Thanks.

By the way, I'm leaving gdisk out of that list. There was a good reason, but I'm too busy to check right now... :lol: :ugeek:

Just remembered. This was it: https://forums.solydxk.com/viewtopic.ph ... isk#p67172

Re: Community ISO maintenance and build issues - 2

Great! I've also updated my ISO build scripts. Now to figure out why upgrading the lot still wants to remove the installer... :? Edit Curious. You need to install geoip-database separately first, or apt will get seriously confused. P.S. You do know about dpkg --compare-versions, don't you? The relev...

Re: Community ISO maintenance and build issues - 2

It would, but why bother using geoip-database-contrib at all? The geoip-database package has been around for years. It's available in stretch, even goes back as far as wheezy. Because geoip-database-contrib is a download script: I see. Then the real replacement would probably be geoipupdate : https...

Re: Community ISO maintenance and build issues - 2

More EE issues: VirtualBox. Current version in testing fails to build guest additions video module and latest in unstable fails to run at all . Nice. I suppose I could pull the last 5.2.12 from snapshot (has a fix for the first issue and doesn't have the second one yet...). Has anyone used 5.2.12-df...

Potential systemd/udev upgrading problems:

I'm not in the mood for more computer related issues, so I've put both systemd and udev on hold for now.

Re: Community ISO maintenance and build issues - 2

Well, that was a waste of time... Turns out the only package that really mattered was geoip-database-contrib. The installer needs that but it's gone. Replaced with - wait for it - geoip-database! I don't know if this has the same API as the dead one, i.e. updating the installer may require more than...

Re: Community ISO maintenance and build issues - 2

Right. In that case just putting the removed packages back should work.

I was sure the installer did some clean up near the end (remember seeing it in a terminal install session once). Could have been orphaned packages rather than unavailable ones, I guess.

Re: Community ISO maintenance and build issues - 2

Updating the EE ISOs caused a complete meltdown of the first one (SolydK EE 32), probably because of some essential package which is no longer available in Testing. Even the live installer was removed. Arjen, I intend to provide the missing packages separately (pulling them from unstable or the snap...

Re: New ISOs in ce/testing

Currently uploading two 32-bit isos. Not tested, as usual: https://downloads.solydxk.com/ce/testing/

Note: my bug report about the 32-bit gparted has received no attention whatsoever over the past two months.

Re: Silence maybe golden but it is not what I want!!

Ah, so it was one of the packages I mentioned... 8-)

Do you use midi? If you don't, there's very little chance you'll miss having timidity installed.

Re: Testing ISOs 201806

Sorry for not giving this the attention it needs. I don't know if I'll have time to do any serious testing (having so many computer related issues lately I'm almost ready to chuck the lot out of the window and switch to collecting stamps... :roll: ).
