Re: Missing Linux headers

yep...running apt to clean sometimes lead to missing important packages. if debian kernel didn't work, how about custom kernel like towo or liquorix?

Re: Missing Linux headers

instead of looking for that missing header you can install the newest kernel from the repo. somehow it seems that you haven't updated your system for quite long time too.

Re: Grub2 EFI : I'm in trouble with so much versions installed

generally my advice is : "if it ain't broke, don't fix it". grub-pc* is for non-EFI system but it does no harm on EFI system. ia32 is for 32 bit system. your system might slight bloated but it still works fine. on a user's perspective, it's not easy to determine whether if their system is ...

Re: PPAS : How can I make sure that a PPA is suitable for my SolydK stable ?

a quick check would be : as long as the PPA only contain the software, not any libs or any dependency, you'll be mostly safe. else, if it have some dependency, make sure that they didn't exist on debian. you can set your PPA preference lower than 100 to make sure you're safe. though, you'll need to ...

Re: DDM and AMD Radeon

yep...I got lost after reading the code too :lol: somehow it became unnecessarily complex because it was designed for both jessie and stretch. It might be easier if we create two DDM. one for jessie and one for stretch. we will need to maintain two DDM but after stretch got released the burden will ...

Re: DDM and AMD Radeon

I was under the impression that the kernel installs only radeon and not the open amd-gpu driver. If you are right and the open amd-gpu driver is correctly chosen by the kernel DDM can concentrate on the proprietary driver. I still think you missed jessie, which still needs to be supported by DDM ri...

Re: SolydNeon

there's no specific guide but after you install debian you simply:
1. add the solydxk repo into your list.
2. update the package cache.
3. install solydxk's keyring.
4. install solydxk packages.

done.

Re: SolydNeon

grabbing the nightly iso would be the hardest route. you'll need to update your system from jessie to stretch. that's a long and risky process. did I misunderstood something here? somehow I think you were mean using the latest solydK-ee iso. if that true, yes, that's also another easy method to get ...

Re: TV Monitor

the formula I gave above is something rougely similar to PPI. albeit, we only count the vertical pixel to make it simpler. the screen size is defined as <horizontal pixel> x <vertical pixel>. when you see 1080p. it means the screen size is 1920x1080. if you want to use PPI, you'll use PPI=(1920*1080...

Re: SolydNeon

I'm on X so I'm not quite about plasma situation. AFAIK most of our problem in plasma was configuration issue and lack of documentation. people said it's now lot better but I don't know the details. the best route to get stable K would be using debian's testing ISO then solydk-ing it.

Re: DDM and AMD Radeon

AFAIK amdgpu was made ot get rid the driver complexity over flgrx vs opensource driver. we should use this advantage for ourself. I'd suggest to make DDM work as simple as that (i.e: only offer installation of propietary driver for supported hardwares). there might some problem on older hardware (e....

Re: DDM and AMD Radeon

if understand it correctly, in stretch, we only need to make sure both open driver were installed (i.e: radeon and amdgpu). the kernel will pick the approriate driver automatically. the propietary driver could be installed later (i.e: firmware-amd-graphics). it means that DDM only need to make sure ...

Re: SolydNeon

But what I like about Neon LTS is the idea that Plasma will get regular security updates and bug fixes. Without updateing the entire Plasma desktop. The updated programs could also be very valuable if the updates fix bugs. So basically my dream Neon distro would be SolydK built on top of Neon LTS. ...

Re: SolydX-EE as bridge to SolydX Stretch

if you follow Zill's advice above, you can update your system as usual and happily enjoy a seamless transition between solydxk-EE and solydxk during stretch release. you only need to make sure that your repo list is pointing to "stretch" and not "testing".

Re: Energy consumption: SolydX vs SolydK

the cpu power usage might different but the system still using almost same amount energy for everything else (i.e: screen, wifi, fan, boards, etc). in the end the total power usage usually not much different. btw, if you're using a laptop, you can use powertop to roughly calculate the power usage. t...
