Re: OK not to reformat /home during install?

Thanks for the replies. Online it seems that Linux users are split on reformatting /home. In summary, it seems like reformatting /home is a good idea when switching distros, but it should not present much of a problem to leave it unformatted (saving all your config files) if you are upgrading the sa...

OK not to reformat /home during install?

I currently run SolydK-8 with separate root, /home and /Data partitions. (The /Data partitions are soft linked to my home directory.) Would there be any problems if I do a clean install of SolydK-9 on my root directory without reformatting my /home directory? I have some third party and proprietary ...

I started the update and received a dpkg error. When I closed the error window, updatemanager disappeared from my dock. I tried to start ...

Re: apt-get update error

Thank you very much for your help. I'm sorry you ran into issues trying to reply to my post. Based on these issues, I decided to install a fresh 64-bit SolydX system on this machine. It's still updating from the original iso install, but so far so good. If I run into problems, I'll be back! This is ...

Re: apt-get update error

No joy. See below. The hash sum mismatch usually occurs if you happen to update at the moment the repository itself is updating. It should disappear by itself. If it doesn't, try a mirror. E.g. in sources.list, use ftp. cc .debian.org instead of ftp.debian.org, replacing cc with the country code rel...

apt-get update error

I am trying to update/upgrade the SolydX installation on my father-in-law's laptop to the new Jessie base. I first ran into an error with the update manager saying it had no internet connection, when the computer in fact had a connection (could reach web pages, etc.). After consulting these forums, ...

Re: Digikam 4.1 freezes and crashes

Didn't SolydK offer some versions of digikam between 2.6 and the current 4.1? I seem to remember that.

Thanks for the clarification re: backports.

Re: Digikam 4.1 freezes and crashes

Digikam 4.4 should fix the Flickr upload problem, but I don't expect it to fix the mysql freezing problem (which is the more serious bug that is stopping me in my tracks). That patch wasn't committed until version 4.5. I was considering switching to Linux Mint 17.1, but that is at Digikam 4.3.5, whi...

Digikam 4.1 freezes and crashes

Digikam is one of the major applications I use, and I have been frustrated lately in getting the latest version (4.1.0) in the Solyd repositories to work. Specifically, the program crashes if I try to set it up with an SQLite database (which may be an SQLite issue, according to the Digikam forums). ...

I had a couple issues come up with today's (Aug. 18) update, which included a new kernel and graphics drivers, on my freshly installed SolydK-64 bit 201407 system. This system has an nVidia GeForce GTX 750 Ti graphics card, which previously was not supported by the drivers available through DDM. Thu...
