Re: Locked out of updates, dpkg

I am afraid I am almost out of ideas.

Can you reinstall linux-image-4.19.0-8-amd64 and linux-image-amd64?

Also, check if there are any clues in /var/log/dpkg.log

Re: Locked out of updates, dpkg

I would boot the old kernel and try to reinstall (or purge and install) those two packages.

Re: Locked out of updates, dpkg

I see you have two kernels installed.

Do you boot from the newest kernel?
Check with:

Code: Select all

uname -r
If it shows "4.19.0-8-amd64" you could remove the old one (where the process hangs):

Code: Select all

apt purge linux-image-4.19.0-6-amd64
If you succeed, run this again:

Code: Select all

sudo dpkg --configure -a

Re: Notepad++ text editor

Notepad++ is a Windows application if I remember correctly.

Depends in what language you are coding.

I use Eric for my Python applications and Kate for the rest.

Re: New ISOs in ce/testing

As an alternative I can upload my ISOs based on testing together with the nightlies to the nightlies download a...

Re: [Solved [Help]] Resize EFI Partition

Yes, if your EFI partition is smaller than 100MiB it suggests the default 500MiB.
We check for a minimum size of 100MiB for backward compatibility.

To skip partition size checks you need to pass the -p parameter in terminal:

Code: Select all

live-installer -p
Just tried it with a 99MiB EFI partition.

Re: User name at login screen -- visible or not? SOLVED

I hope you did not remove or comment the "greeter-hide-users=false" line. It should be there or the default will get inserted again.
You just need to replace "false" with "true".

Re: make partitions persistence

There is a very old tutorial on how to create a SolydXK persistent USB drive: viewtopic.php?f=9&t=6097&p=58834

Be careful, though. The tutorial hasn't been updated since.

Re: Display issue with themes

I recommend to use a theme that actually works. Editing themes takes a lot of effort, even if you know how to code CSS. If you are still interested you can find all installed themes in /usr/share/themes/ You will need to adjust both gtk2 and gtk3 themes which you can find in the theme's sub-director...

Click on the EFI partition and in the new window, keep the format drop down empty (orange in image below):

Live Installer in SolydXK 11 (EE) does not clean up properly

I've started on working through all SolydXK packages for SolydXK 11 (Debian Bullseye). In my search for deprecated Python3 code, I found that the Live Installer did not clean up correctly after installation leaving all live* packages on the newly installed system. I am working on a solution but in t...

Re: [Solved [Help]] Resize EFI Partition

I have little to no experience installing Linux next to Windoze, but I think you should just select the EFI partition and make sure to NOT format that partition (leave the format drop box empty when selecting the EFI partition). You should read the recommendation as-is: it is a recommendation which ...

Re: Stretch and Buster

Thank you very much for the compliment but we're doing this all together. Without the help of grizzler, ilu and others there would not be a SolydXK.

But thanks for a good start of the weekend!
