Re: kernel 3.xx -> 4.xx

mcris: You should appreciate that the SolydX main edition is based on Debian stable (currently jessie), which is well suited to older hardware, and so this is the correct forum. :-) However, SolydXK also has the "Enthusiast Editions" (EE) which are based on Debian testing (currently stretch). While ...

Re: python-openssl bug

python-openssl version 16.2.0-1 is part of stretch. I suggest this thread should be moved to the SolydXK EE "Testing zone" as this is a more appropriate home for problems related to Debian testing software.

There's not so much difference between X and K: the themes are similar and, as I said, they need imho a deep restyling... :roll: The SolydXK themes look fine to me! However, theming is, of course, subjective and every user has their own views on what looks "poor" and what looks "fine". The whole po...

Re: 4.9.0.0 boot error

Why would I have this problem out of the blue when I've been using Solydx for over a year? Possibly because you are running the main edition of SolydX (based on Debian stable - jessie) and have chosen to install a kernel from backports. OR You have chosen to run the testing edition of SolydX (based...

Re: Newer solydxk packages causing problems

I have just routinely upgraded my SolydX (32-bit) stable system today and this included an upgrade of "solydxk-system" from version 2.3.8 to 2.3.9.

Re: Community ISO maintenance and build issues

Tracking stable instead of a codename is an option . Nobody who uses plain Debian is forced to use stable in sources.list. I think using a release name, such as "stable" or "testing", rather than "jessie" or "stretch", is only really appropriate for experienced users who know what they are doing. I...

Re: Community ISO maintenance and build issues

... When a user has jessie in their sources.list and doesn't change that, they will never upgrade to the next release. With stable however, they will upgrade automatically, because when stretch becomes stable, Debian changes the link. No need to mess with sources.list. We currently have a stable br...

Re: FF periodically stalling?! [SOLVED]

I run the 32-bit main edition of SolydX (XFCE) on an old desktop with a 2.40GHz dual-core Intel Celeron E3200 and 2GB RAM. Even with four Firefox tabs, Thunderbird and Chromium open and VLC playing a movie, my system is still reasonably snappy: top.png The only significant difference I can see is th...

I suggest you could try setting the levels with alsamixer then saving these settings with the following command:

Code: Select all

sudo alsactl store
The settings should then be saved in file /var/lib/alsa/asound.state

You should not edit /boot/grub/grub.cfg directly as any manual changes will be overwritten. The correct file to edit is /etc/default/grub and then run 'up...

Re: USB Creator with udisks2

xenmoso: The outputs you posted look fine to me. However, if you still have udisks installed then there could be a conflict with udisks2. As udisks has been removed from the latest SolydXK builds, I suggest you could check to see if it is installed and, if so, remove it: apt policy udisks apt remove...

Re: ISO testing 201701

it would be great, at least by default, to have the same theme/configuration. :P Linux is a multi-user system with root as the system administrator. The idea is that root should not generally run a GUI (and so does not require themes), while users often prefer to have a GUI and so different users c...
