Re: failed update

Sorry for the bother. I have always relied on the Update Manager to make any necessary updates. How did my system end up missing a needed file?
Synaptic Package Manager shows that x11-apps is installed. What should I do?

Trimming /var

My /var dir is over 4G. Most of that is /backup. Can anything there be safely deleted? If not, I have an empty partition in front of SolydX; Can GParted be used to expand the SolydX partition backwards to use that?

thunderbird update

I assume that thunderbird updates are distributed to us just like the rest of the files. However, I have been getting notices saying that Thunderbird 24.4.0 is ready for download. Apparently, these notices are from Mozilla. Are these notices authentic? How should I respond?

Re: conky script needs partition info

Thank you again. I'll have to figure something else out. Conky has limited ability to manipulate/search strings. In systems with the old /etc/mtab the string I sought was something like "/dev/sda3", which was the first 9 characters. As you know, in later versions the first 9 characters returned by c...

Re: conky script needs partition info

Thank you. I should have been more clear. /proc/mounts is intermediate in the chain, and points to self/mounts. I have never seen such a link, i.e. there is no "self" dir.

conky script needs partition info

I have a conky script that I have been using on Ubuntu/Mint. I have several OSes installed and each uses the same script. In that script I look into /etc/mtab for the current partition of the OS. However, SolydX redirects to some place named "self". Where can I, in SolydX, find the current partition?
