Re: Greetings from Scotland

Welcome to the forum, rossroot! You will find that this is a quiet forum, as this distro is mmm... Solid!
Like you, I started using Linux at 1999, but feeling as a newbie, learning something every day.
Are you using SolydX or SolydK?
Thanks in advance for your contributions.

Eduard.

Re: Mars from the Netherlands

Welcome to the forum, Mars! Good to see someone that's has followed a similar path to SolydXK. As you did, I also started with Slackware in the late nineties (not many distros to choose from then). Still keeping the box now. Then followed RedHat (easier, with a 'new' way to manage the packages calle...

Re: Hello to everyone from Italy

Welcome to the forum, Adriano!
Where from Italy are you? Next week I'll be coming back to Italy (Piemonte, Langhe, Cuneo...)
I am a long time user of Linux, too, now enjoying SolydK.
Hope hear your thoughts about this distro soon.

Re: Nightly builds

Many thanks, Arjen.

Nice to see that developing of SolydXK does not stop. I am using SolydK, so better waiting until SolydK beta (Buster).
That seems a good release to came.

Re: hi :-)

Welcome to the forum, catpaws!
You see that KDE is a powerful -and very configurable-desktop environment.
Only con is that it needs some good iron to run on. But you have such good motherboard, RAM and CPU.
So, enjoy SolydK as I do.

Re: Hello from rural USA

Hi, John! Glad to see you here. Perhaps you remember my alias (or avatar) from Mepislovers. I am still having -and using sometimes- a copy of MX-17. But, like you, am used to KDE; so, needing a solid and stable distribution... here I am. Welcome to Solydxk forum again. Hope to see your entries here,...

Re: Hello

So you are able to enjoy SolydX . You see that it is a mid-lightweight, but powerful distro. I am using SolydK , being used to KDE from KDE-2 (ages before Plasma...). As you know, Solydxk is Debian based, as LMDE, but as polished (or more) than Linux Mint . You will find that this is a low traffic f...

Welcome to the forum, Albatrosdk! I presume you can help a lot here.
As sysadmin, your choice of SolydXK seems the right one... ;-)

Now, SolydXK Constructor is already translated into Catalan. Hope there are no other files to translate. P.S: By the way, at 17:55 CET I did not received any ...

Re: Please, help translating!

Well, seems that one email from Transifex was trapped by the spam filter, may be more of them. Now the address has been whitelisted.
I see that now I have access to SolydXK Constructor. ASAP I’ll be translating this file, too.

Re: Some clues about CPU vulnerabilities? Spectre and meltdown

All right. So, I tried your suggestion (with newer kernel):

Code: Select all

[root@orion eselma]# dmesg | grep 'page tables isolation'
[    0.000000] Kernel/User page tables isolation: disabled
Well, disabled should mean safe. I did not put the argument 'nopti' in grub.cfg

Re: Some clues about CPU vulnerabilities? Spectre and meltdown

The SA-00086 tool has absolutely nothing to do with Meltdown/Spectre. It's about the Intel Management Engine issue that came up earlier. Ooops! That explains a lot of things, specially the references to 'ME/TXE' in the output. Sorry for having misguided someone. I got the reference of this test fro...

Some clues about CPU vulnerabilities? Spectre and meltdown

Today there was a new kernel to update (4.9.65-3+deb9u2). Do not know if it is related to a new patch trying to fix the recent vulnerability in some recent x86 CPUs (not only intel ones). After downloading the intel tool to detect this flaw ( intel_sa00086.py ), either 4.9.0-4 or 4.9.0-5 appears to ...
