Re: OK not to reformat /home during install?

it should be OK if you leave the home partition. just make sure that on the installation you mount it as /home.

Re: SolydX-9 - Setting up Desktop Background

I can't replicate the issue so I can't investigate it. I'll need a help from a stable user. meanwhile, please check the permission and the user of those folders.

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

today apt-listchanges said that ifupdown now support pattern matching interface. I forgot to copy the exact message but anyone who need this feature should already know it better than me.

Re: SolydX-9 - Setting up Desktop Background

the desktop setting now select a directory. that's why you can't select a single file. first, you need to select the directory. after that, it will show you the content of the folder. simply click on the picture to change the background. it's a little akward, yes, I don't know why they make it like ...

Re: general question in Linux or any open source software security?

it mainly depends on the compiler. as you can see, C need to be compiled to create a binary file. you'll also have different development environment. the component would be : 1. source code. 2. compiler. 3. development environtment. you can't get same binary file unless you have same source code, co...

Re: solved: Just installed solydx9 iso no updates nor bluetooth

aside from the existence, you might want to check the owner and permission too. sometimes it can't read the destination because permission issues.

Re: general question in Linux or any open source software security?

it's rather interesting question so I'll try to give it a shot. The source is available for free download, but I only download a ISO [compiled binaries] if developer chooses to write some spying code and include it only in ISO, but not in source repositories, how will end user be aware of it? honest...

Re: Convert Debian 9 into SolydXK

the only problem would be your system won't get supported after buster got released (roughly 2 years from now). you'll also need to make sure that your system is pointing to old-stable instead of stable. SolydX does not need to be reinstalled each time an update is released. You don't have to reinst...

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

either removing that package or using "force" option on apt should work. though, the first is "cleaner" and easier to maintain. manually fix the file as grizzler pointed should works too. I'd say it's the best method to do it.

Re: Vivaldi video on all sites after problem

the problem seems have been solved. please allow me to add a small note. your mod will gone on ffmpeg update. i.e: when debian update their ffmpeg, your ffmpeg will get overwriten. if vivaldi video broken again, you can simply redo this mod again.

Re: Failure messages at boot up {closed}

if you're curious, you can run this command to check kernel error

Code: Select all

dmesg -l err
though, as I've said earlier, as long as your system works fine you can ignore it.

I could check for dmo and exit with a message that the user should upgrade manually. Is that ok with you? I have similar hought about it. I think it's safer to do that way. I've seen a case of partial upgrade due to wrong repo configuration (i.e: main system=jessie, dmo=stretch) and I haven't got a...
