New SolydX User

Postby MCh » 10 Feb 2017 19:09

Hi. I've been around Linux for a while now, since about 2009. My old favorite disto was CrunchBang, then when #! ended, I went to Xfce - Handy Linux...then...Handy Linux recenty dropped English support.

So, searching for another Debian Stable Xfce on DW brought me to SolydX. If I remember correctly, SolydXK used to run Debian Testing, but I am happy to find SolydX is now Debian Stable. THANK YOU!

I installed SolydX on an old desktop last night, and everything is running great! It's running on an old WD 5400 RPM laptop HDD and an AMD Athlon 64 X2 5000+ CPU. I did have to install nvidia drivers for video support. So far, so good!

Stretch is going stable this year and I hope SolydX will be around for a long, long time.

I've still got some tweaking to do, but SolydX is definitely a keeper!

Hi MCh, and welcome to our forum!

It's good to see you know your way around Linux. With Stretch coming to stable there's a lot that needs to be done and we could always use people who'd like to test the next generation stable ISOs.

Very nice desktop you've got there. I like it, very zen :D


SolydXK needs you!

Thanks for the Welcome, everyone! Glad to be here. :)

@palimmo: Thanks for the praise. I'm not sure what part of the build would merit a tutorial. What would you like to know about it?
