Re: Not sure if grub will work on reboot

If the machine is 'live' go to root and do an update-grub, followed by a grub-install /dev/sd(whatever disk you wish to boot from. But no partition information. (Say /dev/sdx)) This should restart your machine where you are now and enable you to read the other boot alternatives. If something hits th...

Re: rebuild boot menu

This is my 'procedure' The new distro writes its own grub boot. With luck it will give you access to other systems already installed. Without luck I use SuperGrb2 which gives you access to all available systems. Select the system that you want as the primary boot and boot into it. Then as root do "u...

Re: SolydXK on Social Media

We suffer from unsolicited telephone calls often with accents from the Indian sub-continent. The guilty parties are probably using information gleaned/stolen from the telephone company.

Re: Accounting and Invoice software - Akaunting

Thanks. I fear you may have opened another hole in the rabbit warren.

Re: DDM resurrected

I am afraid that there is no /var/log/ddm. lightdm but no ddm. There is no /var/log/ddm in Solydx either. The only package not yet installed was the xserver-amdgpu package and this was loaded using synaptic I am afraid. Lazy sods always take the easy way out! I did glance at the code but was unable ...

Re: SolydXK 9 released!

Reading between the lines of Pastors post updating an existing system to Solydk9 is a system reload and not a change in the addresses of the repositries. As he clearly describes it is not a rolling release. My existing 'stable' system uses Mysql solydxk9 uses mariadb and whilst mariadb may well be i...

Re: Weather on the panel not working

Works for me. Solydx ordinaire and SolydX-9 both using 'normal' sources lists.

The question arises have you loaded details of the location of the weather station?
