Test of SolydX-64bit iso of Feb 22, 2013

Postby GeneC » 22 Feb 2013 22:42

To start = :mrgreen:
This is going to be short.

To summarize, only one small issue (still a couple items to test)
[rimg]http://img832.imageshack.us/img832/4319/1stu.png[/rimg]

1. Installation was easy and smooth = no problems
2. Grub found my existing swap file, and 4 other installed OS's = no problem
3. Welcome Screen (small hitch). It was looking for "Nvidia-Detect" which was not installed?
(But on running DDM, it was installed there. So not really an error, perhaps just get rid of the warning?)

4. Ran DDM -d (Here Nvidia-Detect WAS installed, and Nvidia driver installed with no issues.
ddm.doc
5. Upon re-boot Plymouth still worked. This is a first , (to have Plymouth work after installing Nvidia on ANY Debian based distro). Nice Work! :D
6. YouTube videos play in HD nicely.
7. Sound works (after selecting my sound card from the three available) with pavucontrol (thanks for including that).
8. Printer (Epson NX-515 muulti) worked out of the box, with no configuration needed. Just turned it on, and there it was. Test print fine.
9. Cups-PDF printer worked fine.
10. Simple Scan worked fine.

That's as far as I have gotten. Except for that one small hitch with the Welcome Screen, everything works and work well. I think that is a first for any Debian based distro I have installed.
Very nice work... ;)

I don't have wifi, so could not test that. Hopefully we will get more testers.
This distro is ready to rock.. :P

That's odd: both SWS and DDM share the same code. So, if DDM detects correctly, so should SWS.
What happens if you run SWS manually (from the menu or terminal)?

SWS was looking for nvidia-detect upon first reboot. It was not there, because I noted that it was installed only during the first run of DDM. Must show that in the ddm-log.

If there is any other log I can post, please let me know.

I just found out that, not only SolydX is missing nvidia-detect, the 32-bit version have a greyed-out shutdown button.
Does that sound familiar.
Luckily I know what to do: downgrade xinit. Users can upgrade the package after they installed it.
I'm rebuilding the SolydX iso's while I type this message.

Ah! glad that you found it so fast.
From all the many distros that I have installed that was just a little glitch. But, I am sure you are glad you found a quick fix.

I have been playing with it the last hour or two, and everything is just fine... :D

I know, but somehow the preinst script in the solydx-meta package is not fired after solydx-artwork is installed. This is the trouble with meta packages: not being an actual package itself, it waits until itself is being installed and that's the last in the list, because solydx-artwork is a prerequisite.

Even when I manually purge lmdexfce-artwork, the diverted file still exists (badly made package, that is!) and causes the same error when you install the meta package afterwards.

I'll ponder over this after the weekend. Perhaps separate the package in two - the first cleans up the system and the second would install the solydx packages. Complicated, but it should work.

I assume this is what you are talking about, and not to upgrade those packages?

Yes, some minor updates on these packages. All to solve the LMDE Xfce to SolydX conversion...to no avail I'm afraid.
