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

Sure, I probably went about it in an overly cautious way.

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

If anyone is wondering, I have a working system (now on vanilla debian stretch), and I kept my old /home. My upgrade procedure went something like the following. It might not work for others and may not be suitable for a SolydXK install as I used vanilla debian: 1. Back up everything. 2. Keep a copy...

I had both Xfce and KDE. I'm using KDE now and didn't remove Xfce. Maybe using both caused issues. I cannot reinstall librtmp1: $ sudo apt-get install --reinstall librtmp1 Reading package lists...

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

Edit: I'm going to do a fresh install. I think ideally the update script ought to be taken down or updated so that it warns people of this problem. ---------------------------------------- Thanks for the replies.

Re: Chromium Sound and Video Playback Broken with Latest Update

Solution: Install newer pulseaudio from jessie-backports:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get -t jessie-backports install pulseaudio
Followed by a restart.

Clearly the pulseaudio that is in the main jessie repository is broken.

SOLVED Chromium Sound and Video Playback Broken with Latest Update

Hello I updated the software recently and I got a problem with chromium playing back HTML5 video too fast. And all of the sound is chopped up and unrecognisable. Chromium version: 55.0.2883.75-1~deb8u1 Pulseaudio version: 5.0-13 Sound works on other applications, though my master volume control (KDE...

Re: Package configuration errors when using python3 (Easy fi

I'm saying that the packages should not be like this. From what I could briefly find out it seems at least some of these packages are fixed upstream, but if not they should be fixed by the SolydXK maintainers and the package maintainers upstream should be notified also. For users the solution would ...

Package configuration errors when using python3 (Easy fix)

When using python3 as the debian alternative for the python command, many configurations fail because they try to run python 2 code using python3. The solution is for the installer scripts to explicitly specify python2, which I suspect to be a simple fix. Here is an example of an error: Setting up p...

Re: UP 2014.10.15

The upgrade procedure has stalled at this point:

Code: Select all

Setting up xdg-user-dirs (0.15-2) ...
Processing triggers for libc-bin (2.19-3) ...
Processing triggers for menu (2.1.47) ...
Is that normal? How long should it take from this point?

Re: Good Idea to use AppArmor?

Good answer. I suppose that as long as you keep the system up to date and generally secure AppArmor (or SELinux) is probably overkill for Desktops on Linux.

Re: Good Idea to use AppArmor?

But it's no good doing something differently unless there was a benefit to doing it. There has to be a benefit to not having AppArmor enabled or else why is it disabled? I'm not saying it should be enabled by default, I'm just curious as to why.

Re: Good Idea to use AppArmor?

True, but Ubuntu uses it behind the scenes. A typical user never needs to know it's there. Ubuntu enables AppArmor and installs security profiles without user involvement. So if Ubuntu does it, why not Debian/SolydXK?

Good Idea to use AppArmor?

Hi, would anyone recommend enabling AppArmor for SolydXK as per the debian how-to: https://wiki.debian.org/AppArmor/HowTo ? I assume it would work fine but since there is no mention of it on these forums or elsewhere for SolydXK and since AppArmor would have quite a major effect, I was wondering if ...

Re: JACK not working for alsaequal: failed to jack_connect()

The resonance I'm talking about happens in a range of maybe 5 Hz. I would indeed need something with high fine tuning. I can lower nearby frequencies but at the cost of sound quality. Clearly there is a problem with my sound system, most likely the speakers, and I ought to sort that out (to my unfor...

Re: JACK not working for alsaequal: failed to jack_connect()

Thanks for your help. I'm sure others will stumble upon this and find it helpful. I think I'm going to keep pulseaudio running as everything works properly when it is. In regards to alsaequal I realised that I probably can't use it to solve my speaker sound problem. It's not just that the bass is bo...

Re: JACK not working for alsaequal: failed to jack_connect()

OK. I managed to get into a situation where I have the alsaequal driver active in KDE, and the equaliser works. I set the correct master channel as the "Speaker" one on the U7, but the volume does not adjust nicely, most of the volume is concentrated at the top end of the volume level. It's like it'...

Re: JACK not working for alsaequal: failed to jack_connect()

I couldn't get it to work. The only thing disabling pulseaudio did is completely remove sound from the system, and after starting it again the sound is still not working, so I guess I'll have to restart.
