Then I found the recommendation to not replace sometime after the updating was completed. What are some of the consequences of keeping versus replacing? Is it so serious doing the replacement that a re-install is required to correct the situation? Sorry if this has been answered already but I failed to locate it in my searches!!!
Thanks
I moved your post to the UP 2013.12.06 topic.

Replacing the configuration files simply means that you will need to re-configure those after the upgrade.
For example, if you chose to replace the network file while upgrading, and you configured your system to use a static IP address, these settings would have been replaced by the default settings, and you will need to re-configure your static IP address.

In short: no, you don't need to re-install, just re-configure.

I have just intalled (full, after formating the / partition) the new version.
It's nice.

I just hope the printer monitor dissapear from my lower bar, but I guess it's because there is still 1 job undone (damn shared printers in the LAN!).
Also, the "recently installed applications" group in the menu: is it going to dissapear sometime soon?

Besides that, I hope SolydK64 is all I expect and need it to be ;)
Godspeed!

PS: yes, the printer monitor icon is gone, when done :mrgreen:

Right-click the start icon > Application launcher settings > uncheck "Show Recently Installed".

Interesting... but I can't see that here (in portuguese). I unchecked another similar, but removed the recently used apps and not the recently installed.
Nevermind.
Thanks!

arch went out of its way to create a fake nepomuk package (now broken) in order to fool kde

:lol: That's great! Some truly dedicated people! Yeah, just turned it all off, hadn't done much looking around yet, got as far as the KDE wiki, and then Aaron Seigo's writeup, got sidetracked reading the siduction forum, and fooling with G+. (I may even figure that out one day...) :oops: :mrgreen:

Edit - Reading over that link... Lord and lady, they had it in for that ol' Nepomuk to try to fake out KDE.. My hat off to 'em. Guess we really can have everything! :lol:

I raised a couple of issues on the previous page of this thread which turned out to have the same cause. Uninstalling hal seems to have fixed things.

Hi,

For info... Just updated my SolydK64 via the update manager. Unlike previous updates things went slightly wrong with the Nvidia driver... right towards the end of the update when doing some DKMS stuff for Nvidia a message came up at the bottom of the updatemanger dialog that indicated that there was an error related to a broken pipe. On rebooting the PC, X didn't start and when logging on to the console and issuing startx there were messages saying the nvidia.current module wasn't loaded (sorry I didn't note down the exact messages).

/var/log/apt/history indicated:

Code: Select all

Start-Date: 2013-12-15  13:36:02
Commandline: apt-get install --reinstall -y --force-yes nvidia-kernel-dkms
Reinstall: nvidia-kernel-dkms:amd64 (319.72-1)
Error: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (2)
End-Date: 2013-12-15  13:36:12
and /var/log/apt/term had:

Code: Select all

Processing triggers for menu ...
Processing triggers for initramfs-tools ...
update-initramfs: Generating /boot/initrd.img-3.11-2-amd64
Processing triggers for python-twisted-core ...
Log ended: 2013-12-15  13:35:37

Log started: 2013-12-15  13:36:02
Log ended: 2013-12-15  13:36:12
Having decided that the error occurred in reinstalling nvidia-kernel-dkms I attempted to execute it manually and dpkg advised that the previous dpkg had failed. I ran dpkg --configure -a, the nvidia reinstall completed OK and on reboot all was working again. This is the first UP that's gone wrong and my system is fairly standard. Thought I'd post my experience just in case someone else hits the broken pipe issue...

Just got to say I'm really impressed with this distribution. I like the idea of a rolling release and you guys seem very well organised. Keep up the good work :)

@lostweekend

To back out all Nvidia stuff and then re-install the "correct" Nvicia" driver, take a look at this post --> http://forums.solydxk.nl/viewtopic.php? ... 243#p21447
