Greetings from Holland

Postby Koelmos » 05 Mar 2014 10:58

Hi, after testing/using some distros I decided to stick with SolydK, a big thank you for the ones creating / maintaining this great distro.
I had some minor problems in the beginning, I couldn't install Solid in my native language (Dutch) the installer stopped at 'locales firefox', so I installed the English version and changed the language afterwards.
The video playback didn't work in Banshee 'till I installed all of Gstreamer 1.0
One thing that I couldn't solve 'till now is making a full image of my partition, I tried clonezilla and redo, both complained (during the image check) about a broken root partion image and messed up my hard drive, so I had to run f*ck.
But I'm happy :)

Welcome to SolydXK and the forum.

It's looking like our Dutch count is continuing to climb. :)

Did you know, one of the SolydXK co-founders (Scholelje) is Dutch?

Anyway, Welcome! and I look forward to seeing you around the forum.
Quoting zerozero, "The usage of PPA's in debian-based
systems is risky at best and entails serious compatibility
problems; usually it's the best way to destroy an install"
