Nvidia driver does not load on 4.15 and 4.9.0-6

On my way to convert from stable to EE/testing I have a problem with the proprietary nvidia driver not loading (during KMS) and cannot be found(?) with modprobe (nvidia-current not found in /lib/4.15.....) I can only have X with kernel 4.9.0-5 (fails with 4.15 and 4.9.0-6) Xorg.0.log.old (with 4.15)...

Re: Should I choose Testing [EE] ?

I always wanted to compile a tutorial named "kurotsugi on apt pinning". Now this post is a definitive release candidate :ugeek: I just have to figure out how to copy the post instead of moving it ... Edit: Easy-peasy and done! I am happy I helped on motivation! Excellent info, I feel honoured for t...

solydxk is mainly targeted for desktop user so the logs isn't really important.
I suspected that was the reason. It is clear for me now, thanks a lot.

Re: is solydk based on debian testing ?

The official branch is Debian Stable. If you are looking for testing, there is the EE version. From the specific forum section https://forums.solydxk.com/viewforum.php?f=78 : SolydXK is too quiet for you? SolydXK Enthusiast Editions, based on Debian Testing is for you!

Re: Should I choose Testing [EE] ?

But if you need to troubleshoot something go to f.e. https://packages.debian.org/stretch/apache2 and have a look at the ressource links on the right side.

Re: LAMP Server

it used to be different, the whole /var/log directory was set to tmpfs to improve speed and reduce SSD wear. That was generally fine but some software (among them apache) doesn't like having its log files on tmpfs (and thus removed with reboot). I think this is/was a bad practice. Logs are essentia...

Should I choose Testing [EE] ?

Hi all! I 've been a SolydK user from long time, I then switched to Manjaro for the last two years and I 've been in the root to rebase to Debian. Obvious for me this familiar friendly distro. Messing with the harcore(?) linuxers, I dived a lot on troubleshooting reading TFM. Interesting but exhaust...

Re: LAMP Server

Some of the older ISOs moved vast parts of /tmp into RAM which is convenient for desktop use and good for older SSDs but I've heard before that apache doesn't like it. Since SSDs got better I think the newest ISO doesn't do that anymore but I haven't checked. This is my fstab part on tmp on a fresh...

[SOLVED] No titlebar when fullscreen

I have this strange problem. I have a desktop and a laptop, both with the latest SolydK version. On my desktop when any window (also GTKs) maximizes the titlebar disappears. I can drag from an empty window area and it restores. The top menus still exist. It feels like Gnome3 behavior and works nice ...

I installed SolydK32 2014.05 on my laptop (Asus Aspire 5733). First problem was network connection. I was connecting with my WiFi successfully but I had no internet (though other devices had no problem). I changed DNS, no change. I plugged a cable in and worked fine so I could install the UP and may...

Re: kde Connect 0.7.1 [Resolved]

Searching for the same problem/issue in the forum I see this as "Resolved" although it is not really describing how to install ver.0.7.1 instead of the one in the repos (this is what the title says). I assume we have to stay with 0.4.2 even if 0.7.1 brings a couple of new features. Then please chang...

Re: [SOLVED] NetworkManager Applet Oddity

I met this issue as well, just like I did when I was struggling with Makulu versions. I thought it was a Makulu glitch. Now I see it' s a Debian "behavior". Apple funs call these things "features", so can we, but... hey, we make fun of them for this! My view is either this is repaired/fixed before/d...

On the first boot after installing SolydX32 on my hard disk, I noticed ddm and Update Mgr would not start because "not alloed on live environment, use --force to start". It might be because I did some nasty thinks during installation procedure, but since everything works well (till now) except this ...
