Same here. Only used to update itself so far, but it did that without problems and exited cleanly.

Re: Plymouth

I haven't read the whole thread. So, don't kill me if I say something stupid ;) :) About Plymouth: both the live-installer, and Debian Plymouth Manager do not remove the Plymouth packages. They just change the grub configuration to prevent Plymouth from starting. That explains a lot. I hadn't reali...

Re: Conky issues

I've seen that happen before. The Xfce "save session" stuff can cause quite a few problems. Normally, easiest way to fix it would be to use something like this to identify all running copies of conky: ps ax | grep conky Once you've got the PIDs, kill all instances, then log out with "save session" t...

Re: Plymouth

:oops: My last message on this subject got quite confused. Anyhow, lets see if I can make it clearer. I've just done another clean install. First problem is logic in the installer. If you select not to install Grub (I don't on my laptop - use a single grub install which I update for new installation...

NFS problems

I don't think this is a SolydX bug directly, but it is new to SolydX. I have a couple of NFS mounts that I use frequently. One is to my Slackware-based home server, the other to an IcyBox NAS which runs OpenWRT. I normally manually mount the NFS volumes using a script file: #!/bin/bash sudo mount -t...

Re: Plymouth

:) I seem to have got the gremlins pretty badly. I followed your directions and purged plymouth. All looked ok, except update-initramfs didn't run (it did run when I attempted to use the debian-plymouth-manager to set a blank theme for plymouth earlier). As a result, I now have a text shutdown, but ...

Plymouth

I've freed up a spare partition on my laptop (had an experimental install of Xubuntu, so no loss....). I've now installed SolydX from the most recent ISO. During the install, I deselected Plymouth (really don't like it much). But it seems its not so simple to get rid of. I've now set the new install...

Re: Hard Drive Space

Are you running UFW? I've recently activated it and find its logging is very verbose - not only does it log lots of things, it also puts entries in a number of different log files - /var/log/ufw.log, /var/log/messages and /var/log/syslog. If you have it running, it may explain some of the loss of di...

[Solved] Wireless problem

I've got two different MiFi devices. Both are Huawei - one is a Huawei E582, the other and E586. The 586 is the newer and is a bit faster, as well as having better battery life than the 582. However, I have a bit of a problem with it. When I first fired it up, I found that I could not connect to if ...

Re: Replace existing java?

That's really not a java error. More of a java script (no relation to java)/browser error. -Hinto Maybe not. However, the browser attempts to use javascript to save the file (which fails in just about every browser now), then attempts to use Tiddlysave.jar to save. The error is that Java permission...

Re: Replace existing java?

Sorry about the delay... When I finally got up today, I had a look at the desktop machine (which is where I'm having problems with WoaS). And also reconstructed some of the original solution. I hadn't realised that I sorted the problem out under Arch in October last year - suppose its no wonder I do...

Re: SiWapp versus Frontaccounting

Can't comment on either package. I've had a bit of a play with SiWapp, which seems quite good as an invoice generating package. Personally I'd rather see an accounting package, so Frontaccounting might be a better choice. I also agree with your comments on ERP software. I've spent some time with Web...

Re: Replace existing java?

What does it mean "it doesn't work with the OpenJDK."? I develop in java and haven't seen any glaring problems. Do you have any logs or console output. That would be interesting. -Hinto Sorry, should have been more precise. The error was simply "unable to save notes.html" when I attempted to modify...

Re: Replace existing java?

I've done that with no ill effects. You have to make sure you've removed all of the OpenJDK (and icedtea, etc) before you install the Oracle stuff. In my, limited, experience, going back is just as painless. But, you have to pay attention to the detail to make sure you dot all your "t"s and cross a...

Replace existing java?

I've hit a bit of a problem. I use WOAS (Wiki on a Stick) quite a lot. Unfortunately, changes in some of the browser means that it doesn't work the way it used to. I've found (after a good deal of experimentation), that I can use Midori instead of Firefox, and use the Tiddlysaver.jar that came with ...
