Re: Claws Mail for SolydX

I have been using Claws Mail since it was Sylpheed Claws; there was a fork some years ago; and I would never use anything else for email. I get 300-400 emails a day and the filtering capabilities of Claws are superb. It is an "old-fashioned" app in that it concentrates on "lean & mean" text based us...

Re: Show your Desktop Screenshots

Posted the current SolydX desktop the other day; so here is the SolydK version. Nothing special, but I find it easy to work with:

Re: [ask] crunchbang

Just a small thing to add: Debian 8.0 will be called "Jessie"
Sorry, I knew it started with J ?! :) Should have looked it up. Thanks for the correction.

cheers,

Re-run "sgfxi" from Smxi suite does the job here. I always specify the version of nVidia drivers I want with relevant option.

Re: [ask] crunchbang

A couple of things you have not mentioned but I thought I would just in case you have not thought of them. I know right at the moment Wheezy & Testing are the same thing, but, in a few weeks, that will change. When Debian 7.0 is released that will be what is currently Wheezy/Testing and it will beco...

Re: Show your Desktop Screenshots

Nothing fancy here - this is SolydX running against Sid with Liquorix 3.7 kernel & 304.64 nVidia on an Asus laptop. I spend a bit of time getting colors set the way I like them, even in CLI, because I spend a lot of time in the terminal. Some nice icons, bit of wallpaper and a 2nd panel with my most...

Hey GeneC, I don't remember giving you permission to use a photo of me as your wallpaper?! :) Ahh, it'sOK I guess! I noticed you install gedit.

Re: SolydX-64bit tracking Debian SID

Found one serious bug with the new Nvidia driver (304.84). I could not drop out of XServer to CLI (command line). Details here = http://forums.solydxk.nl/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=245 Basically don't upgrade to this driver, or use the Nvidia (313.18-2) from Debian Experimental. from this bug report http:...

Re: SolydX-64bit tracking Debian SID

How about TWO spare partitions... 8-) One for SolydXK Testing Repos and one for SID.. Both will help with testing and debuggin.... ;) Yeah, OK. I've only got about 25GB to spare on the machine at the moment and I usually like to leave enough temporary space to test video production and BIG compiles...

Re: SolydX-64bit tracking Debian SID

You know, it may have been present before (304.64-4 in Testing) without me noticing it. (New install and perhaps never dropped out of X-Server). I only noticed when I installed SMXI, then went to install Liquorix, and new Nvidia.... :?: Perhaps not. I used Smxi to put the Siduction 3.8-3.towo-siduc...

At the age of most of these "attackers" Schoelje, you and I were still out playing by climbing trees and building tree houses; these troglodytes have fun by scaling file hierarchies and building "spambots"!! :) Better to ban first and soften after!

Deb-Multimedia: really needed?

Not too long ago, I ran a partition on my newer test machine of a direct Debian Xfce setup that was aimed at Unstable/Experimental, used a Liquorix kernel from Smxi and nVidia graphics drivers. It had the deb-multimedia repos removed altogether. I had to pick up libdvdcss2 from elsewhere as a "once ...

Re: "Old packages" in a rolling

Ahhhh, my pet discussion from LMDE days is alive & well! :) To declare, I have moved both my SolydXK installs to track, in order of preference; SolydXK, Debian Testing, Debian Unstable & Debian Experimental. That suits me to balance rock solid apps with "newness". I use apt pinning to control where ...

Some Packages Will Not Install

Post install on a fresh SolydX32 system, I went to install a (largish) group of usual software I use. I happened to use Synaptic Package Manager rather than Command Line. A number of packages would not install reporting 'broken' dependencies on selection. This is a sample of such packages, although ...

Small Glitch in SolydX32 install from USB stick

Installed SolidX32 on a slightly older test machine last night and had one small glitch to report. This machine has a number of 20Gb partitions on it, where I put each install I am testing (with no separate /home), a shared swap partition and a distinct, shared '/data' partition. This /data partitio...
