Re: [resolved] New user : some dumb questions

Thank you for your answer. No, no, I don't want the latest software in general. I will not be using the backports, I just wanted to know what they are. Yes, I did install Chrome and LO5 from outside Debian but that will be all I do. The rest of the used software is from within the normal repositorie...

Re: A new installation (FR)

How and when did you change the size of partition sdb1? When you changed it was the installer still active, or did you re-start it afterwards from the beginning? Maybe you should you reboot your computer into the live version again, check with gparted to see if your partitions are okay, shutdown gpa...

Re: [resolved] New user : some dumb questions

A question from me about this subject: What exactly is backport? Is it a repository where stuff is placed which could be installed in the stable release but shouldn't? Where does the name come from? I installed the main edition of SolydK and try to keep it as it is now. Not easy, I added an extra re...

Re: A new installation (FR)

Hello, In the second picture is your boot/EFi partition also sdb1? Now the size is 206MB. Is this the same computer, or is it another one? You ask about enlarging the efi partition, but if it is the same computer you have done that already. If I am correct the efi FAT32 partition should be 128MB min...

Re: SolydXK Appeal?

Okay, so the base is a system which stays in operation till the next version has become stable. The user programs on top of that are constantly updated as soon as an update is released. This way you have the best of both worlds. A rock-solid base with the latest on top of that. But, how about the di...

Re: First updates after fresh install

SolydForEver: The *pixbuf* warnings are quite normal and should be ignored. I am more concerned about the errors starting at line 766 - "unknown filesystem type 'linux_raid_member'" but, as I have never used RAID, I will leave it to others to comment on this one. As a final sanity check, simply ope...

First updates after fresh install

Hi, After tested it in a virtual machine for some days I have just installed SolydK as my main OS on RAID 0, using my own tutorial http://forums.solydxk.com/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=5897 . Installation went fine, no problems here. Here is my used hardware: inxi -Fxz System: Host: desktop-jan Kernel: 3.16...

Re: KDE5

It worked just fine when I made the post earlier in this thread and it is working just as well today. I use Plasma 5 with the kdenext repo on my main machine. Not only is it stable, but this is also Sid - I saw over 1000 changes in September alone due to the GCC transition and ongoing work in KDE. ...

Re: KDE5

You are talking about Debian testing. I know it is the basis for SolydXK EE. But I am talking about KDE5. The KDE guys (and girls) should never have started releasing it till it was much more stable. Now, for over a year already there are unstable OS's because people want KDE5 since they know it exi...

Since I also have to rotate it back to original position it is easier to use the head for the rotation. Pictures change every 10 seconds. A bit hard to do with the monitor. :lol:

Re: SolydXK Appeal?

2) Under the hood it's Debian, a rolling-release OS (so no worrying about your OS being obsolete in 2 years), but in a more friendly package. That's not correct. SolydXK is based (at least since Jan 2015) on Debian Stable "Jessie", that is obviously not a rolling-release. For users in search of a m...

Re: Zeitgeist

I had it running in SolydK in a virtual machine, still trying out Solyd before I will use it as my main OS. In software manager I typed zeitgeist and uninstalled all the packages which showed up with the name zeitgeist in them. In a 2nd VM I use SolydX and here I see no zeitgeist packages installed ...

Re: Zeitgeist

I uninstalled it, everything I could find with name Zeitgeist in it, like Grizzler also wrote. Not one uninstall told me this or that package will be removed as well, so I guess it is pretty safe to do so.

Zeitgeist

Hi, I found out that SolydXK uses Zeitgeist. I find that strange since it is something Ubuntu started using because of their Unity interface. Since SolydXK is not based on Ubuntu but straight on Debian why do we have it here? I read info about Zeitgeist on the internet and although people are trying...

Install SolydXK on RAID 0

In this tutorial I will explain how to install the operating system (OS) on RAID disks. In my example I use RAID 0, which officially is not a RAID because it offers no data security whatsoever should a disk crash. This is caused by having no Redundant Data at all which is needed to give the security...

Hello all, This summer I made a lot of pictures during our holiday trip and I have setup a folder as slideshow for my desktop. The pictures show one by one, 10 seconds each. Only, the ones I made when holding the camera vertical, like with a waterfall, are now shown horizontally. When opening the pi...

Re: Got a new ASUS but having trouble with the LiveUSB

Hi, just found your thread and saw that also in the Ubuntu forums they spoke about this chip.
Would it be an idea, just to try, to make a live USB stick from one of the latest Ubuntu releases? Just to see if Linux (in this case Ubuntu) can handle the chip?
