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 ...

I haven't changed the arguments. So, it should still work.

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!

Waterfox Downgrade

There were reports on Waterfox Classic and Waterfox Current version 2020.01 not starting. In terminal the user would be presented with this error: "version `GLIBC_2.30' not found". We decided to downgrade both Waterfox Classic and Waterfox Current in our repository and wait until upstream fixes the ...

Re: Latest Waterfox Classic and SolydX 9

Thanks grizzler, that helped.

In the mean time I have rebuild waterfox-current and upped the revision number to 2019.10-4.

Lets hope the next release will be better.

Re: Latest Waterfox Classic and SolydX 9

I have replaced all waterfox-classic packages with version 2019.12-4.

I see that the waterfox-current version has the same problem but I am unable to find older sources to build.

Re: Latest Waterfox Classic and SolydX 9

waterfox-classic 2020.01 on solydxk-10 installs fine.

I have rebuilt waterfox-classic 2019.12 and uploaded the packages for solydxk-8 and solydxk-9 only, leaving waterfox-classic 2020.01 for solydxk-10 and solydxk-11.

Let me know if this solves this issue.

Re: Is there an issue with exim4?

I did not have any problems installing exim4 on SolydX 10.

Re: Frozen desktop with SolydK10

I usually rename ~/.config to ~/.config.bak and ~/.kde to ~/.kde.bak and reboot.
All applications will then have the default settings but I find it faster and easier to do it this way.

Re: Install Fail - Where & How to put Grub?

For most people not but if you have a internet connection during the live session and you start the live installer it will update itself to the latest version if there is a newer version available.

This is usually a theming issue.

Re: HDD degraded performance and SMART not working

I have had so many problems with NTFS partitions in the past that I have converted all to ext4 and replaced devices that did not recognize ext4. Now, if that is a bit too rigorous for you, you can always mount the HDD on a Windows machine and run chkdsk. That sometimes helped but always just tempora...
