Re: darktable, backports repository,

since the target is to get v2.4...that trick is fine as long as the dependency allow it. the only disadvantages is that you won't receive security updates for darktable. though, there's a potential breakage on the next debian release.

Re: Breakage and News tracker for debian testing [buster]

in the old days, my trick is to : uninstall solydxk-system >> upgrade >> reinstall solydxk system. though, I can't test it since I'm not using solydxk-system anymore

Re: Apt's cli visual style?

a possible explanation is that my system is a solydxk-ed debian install. I can't download solydxk iso due to the large size so I started with a debian net install

Re: Upgrades aren't happening

the repo entry seems normal. either with the other two commands. it means that you really didn't have any package to update. though, there's a possibility that your cache is corrupted. in that case you'll need to reset apt. the command is : sudo rm /var/lib/apt/lists/* -vf after that you'll need to ...

Re: Apt's cli visual style?

I'm afraid it isn't just the color and style. it's a matter of the backend. IIRC we're using our own apt script which using aptitude as the backend. aptitude search audacity i audacity - fast, cross-platform audio editor p audacity:i386 - fast, cross-platform audio editor i A audacity-data - fast, c...

AFAIK PTI only fix meltdown. OTOH we didn't have any solution for spectre yet. as long as we exclusively only use softwares from the official repo, we'll be relatively safe. though, I don't know much about the possibility of attack from websites. theorically our browser has it's own sandboxing mecha...

Re: swap in systemd, any problems?

the only significance regarding systemd is that you can't disable swap by commenting /etc/fstab entries. obviously changing the UUID doesn't really matter. it will boot normally and the swap will be mounted as usual. taken from arch wiki : systemd activates swap partitions based on two different mec...

Re: swap in systemd, any problems?

IIRC if you're using systemd, swap is handled by systemd (i.e: old fstab trick won't work). systemd will detect whether if you have swap partition and automatically mount it. things got lil bit complicated if you want to disable swap partition. since fstab didn't work, you'll need to mask the swap s...

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

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.
