Re: Upgrade 8 -> 9. Removing obsolete packages issue.

if the aim is to reinstall while keeping the old /home partition, then it should be enough reinstall with custom partition. just make sure that your /home partition is mounted as /home at the installation and you'll be fine. in some cases the old configuration break one or two things. in that case w...

Re: Upgrade 8 -> 9. Removing obsolete packages issue.

deborphan is agressive. it will try to remove everything marked as "automatic" which not used by other packages. you can deselect important packages by marking them as "manual".

Re: Tearing on Amd graphic card

it is _supposed_ to be enabled but we are on debian realm where things are a bit conservative. some features are commonly disabled in the name of "compatibility with older hardware". in my experience AMD chips with radeon driver works better with some tweaks enabled. though, I don't know a...

Re: Upgrade 8 -> 9. Removing obsolete packages issue.

instead of using that list, you can do it safely by using deborphan combo and aptitude.
the deborphan combo : "aptitude purge $(deborphan)"
as for the aptitude. run aptitude on graphic mode then go through obsolete section. remove them all.

Re: Tearing on Amd graphic card

first, we need to identify what is your device and which driver being used. please run "inxi -Fxz" and tell us the result. the sympton suggested that you got either bad X config or your hardware doesn't support tearfree option. AFAIK tearfree should be enabled with other option. the correc...

Re: USB WiFi Adapter, driver installation

limiting oneself to either atheros or realtek would be hard. the main problem lies on how linux kernel drivers were made. the open source nature of linux doesn't mean that those driver were made by some random person. in fact, most of the kernel driver is created by the factory employee. due to the ...

Re: procedure to upgrade to solydxk-9

assuming that you didn't use backports, AFAIK the update shouldn't significant since they were just security updates. you can safely upgrade to solydxk-9 from solydxk-8. the downside would be : 1. you need to download lot of updates. 2. it require longer step. (i.e: create backup - preparation - sim...

Re: USB WiFi Adapter, driver installation

AFAIK the correct driver is either rt2860sta (firmware-ralink) or mt7610_sta. unfortunately the driver is known to be buggy so I don't know whether if it will work or not.

Re: Syslogd error message

I don't know why that message appear but one thing I'm sure is...syslogd should be nonexistent on solydxk. the capability is now fully handled by init. in fact, all log system is now handled by init. the message seems bogus. the culprit might not syslogd but rather something else.

Re: New simple feature requests/ideas

nvidia bumblebee is a driver which means it will be used automatically if you have the proper hardware. if you want to run steam games, you'll need to install steam client first, then run the game from it.

Re: Please replace ESR by Firefox standard

Re: Problem with using Virtual Hosts .

please CMIIW, the way your hosts file was made, if you type "web-host1" on the browser, it can't access the defined ip address since you only specified ipv4 address. the solution would be either disable ipv6 or add ipv6 address in your hosts file.

Re: Nvidia bumblebee run steam games?

IIRC bumblebee is designed for hybrid GPU (i.e: intel + nvidia card). it use intel as default but will automatically switch to nvidia card when needed. OTOH prime is designed for common nvidia. if it installed on hybrid GPU, it will use the nvidia card as default unless user told it to use intel car...

a text editor would be suffice but it should be easier if you use something with auto completion structure. as for the GUI, you can pick whichever you like.

not a breakage but rather an information. if you got a message that libgles2-mesa will got removed, you can ignore it since libgles2-mesa is a dummy package.
