Re: SolydXK 10 202006 testing

Yeah the laptop is too new. I took the same iso's and installed them on my desktop machine, which is older and uses Intel graphics. They both worked well.

Re: SolydXK 10 202006 testing

Yes I did the sha256sum -c and they both passed OK. I haven't tried the solydX on metal yet but the SolydK boots up just fine. But the only way to get out of it is a hard power off. I have tried using the terminal restart or power off but it still freezes with no output. Maybe this machine with dual...

Re: SolydXK 10 202006 testing

My previous post referred to the Live session only. It worked as expected on virtualbox, from the EE repository. However I now have installed the SolydK iso to metal and behavior is back and worse. Pressing ctrl+alt+backspace locks the computer. No cursor visible, no response to key presses, only to...

Re: SolydXK 10 202006 testing

I am part way through testing both of the new iso's. There is a problem in each of them, I am unable to get to the log-in screen. Using ctrl+alt+backspace or going through the menu just freezes the computer. There is no cursor and the keyboard is unresponsive. Maybe this is just in Live session? I a...

Re: I just lost my network connection with the latest updates (SolydXEE)

I just followed exactly the things the guy in the first link posted. He purged the iptables so I did also. Iptables and firewalls are 2 of the many things that I still have to learn. I wonder if having populated tables might inteerfere with installing firewalld? If you are adventurous you could keep...

Re: I just lost my network connection with the latest updates (SolydXEE)

I had the same problem, and found the solution in the link grizzlelr supplied. https://lists.debian.org/debian-user/2020/02/msg00403.html . Specifically in the the last response. So I removed ufw. Then I purged iptables following this https://serverfault.com/questions/200635/best-way-to-clear-all-ip...

Re: [Solved [Help]] Resize EFI Partition

In the installer, during the partitioning step, there is a check box beside each partition for formatting. The column is labeled format. Ensure that there is not a check mark in that box.

Re: [Solved [Help]] Resize EFI Partition

Having the EFI partition second in order is not unusual for Windows. It is that way on my machine. All I had to do when installing SolydX was tell the installer NOT to format /dev/sda2 and to mount that partition at /boot/efi.
I attached a screenshot of Gparted on my machine.

Re: New ISOs in ce/testing

Good Morning
It seems that I have made a silly error. I removed the iso from the vm's optical drive but it was not actually removed. Most likely I clicked the wrong button. So I have been starting the live session.
Sorry to have bothered you guy's.

I installed SolydXee_11_64_2019 in VirtualBox. Sha256sum checked for the iso. Installation was without problem. But at the first update using Package Updater I got an error.

Re: LibreOffice 6

The stable edition is not going to get 6.1, until Debian makes the change to Buster as stable which should be sometime mid-year. Version 6.1.5 is in testing now.

I have used minitool partition Wizard Free successfully. https://www.partitionwizard.com/free-pa ... nager.html.
It is free but I don not know if it is OSS. It may be able to solve your problem.

Re: Breakage and News tracker for debian testing [buster]

There is a bug in apt-show-versions that breaks apt apt update. There is a workaround posted.
This is probably related to the perl transition.

Re: SolydXK on Social Media

I think the visibility factor is the determinant. Assuming that the social media accounts are locked down as much as possible, and the amount of information available in the account is limited.

Re: Launching a program by start that needs «sudo» password

I have been curious about this myself, so this morning I investigated. The man page for visudo states that it provides some "sanity checking" when editing the sudoers file. This sounded like some syntax checking so I did a small test. In a graphical text editor, opened with elevated privileges I rem...
