Re: Breakages and News tracking Debian Testing

kurotsugi, the linux package migration candidate is trying to update from 4.0.2-1 to 4.0.4-1 . It looks like the linux-tools migration candidate page was simply not updated last week to indicate a move from 3.16-3 to 4.0+65. IOW, it looks like the candidate was, in fact, 4.0+65, but the page maintai...

Re: Breakages and News tracking Debian Testing

Aside from the fact that Debian is designating 3.16+63 as an 11 day old candidate, 3.16-3 isn't really trying to update to 3.16+63. It's already happened. 3.16+63 is already in Testing. you got it wrong. the candidate is the 4.0 ones. 3.16 is already in testing. note that the package version number...

Re: Breakages and News tracking Debian Testing

The candidate is the installation candidate, i.e. the version that would be installed on your system if you did an apt-get install. Your system is tracking Testing, so the installation candidate is 3.16+63. I understand that 3.16+63 is designated as the candidate. My point is that it shouldn't be. ...

Re: Breakages and News tracking Debian Testing

Would Debian allow the kernel to drop down into Testing with such a serious bug? I'm guessing the answer is Yes. in general it depends on whether if the bug got discovered between 10 days sid "testing" interval or not. in this case the bug got discovered before the kernel move into testing. https:/...

Re: Breakages and News tracking Debian Testing

Thunar is still as useless as it's ever been (no chance of me switching from Nemo) and everything else just looks and feels the same. I'll have to read up on the changes to find out what's different. Frank, there's no chance (I don't think) of me moving away from Thunar. I'm trying to maintain as p...

Re: Breakages and News tracking Debian Testing

I'm running pure Debian Testing, and updates are still coming through. Look at these to try to guess:

https://release.debian.org/migration/

https://bugs.debian.org/release-critical/

https://bugs.debian.org/release-critical/graph.png

I think we're still many days away from Jessie going stable.

Re: Is there are flash update

For a temp fix before Debian updates their package: 1) I would close your web browser(s). 2) http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/?no_redirect Download the package - select the .tar.gz package. For 64 bit, it will be install_flash_player_11_linux.x86_64.tar.gz 3) Extract it to a folder. 4) Place/copy th...

Sorry to resurrect this if this was fixed, but I recently installed an Nvidia card, and I'm getting the same type of memory jump issue. The libcairo2 versions in Testing and SID are the same at version 1.12.16-2 When I look at the libcairo2 Source Package, the date stamps/last modified dates are 09/...

it might not be the same issue but this bug https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=753816 is also about systemd and sound. although there the question seems to be a race condition with the load timing of the modules (as you can follow in comments #45 #50 and #55) http://www.phoronix.com/...
