I just uploaded the new solydxk-flashplugin packages to testing.
FF23 will then have to wait until the next UP.
Or else we have all the good things now, and nothing next month ;)

Just upgraded Solydk 64bit install to testing.The upgrade went smoothly and I was left with only a few small glitches in the solydxk-conky gui. Everything looking good now. :D

Another update on the update manager:
  • Reverted preference window mode. I tried to solve a bug that when closing the preference window with the 'x' button, it does not show correctly when you try to open it again. Unfortunately, this behavior is found in all UM's sub-windows.
    I suspect the current Nvidia drivers, or it's high time to change to Python3 and Gtk+
  • apt-get update will not download all language packages anymore, only the environment language. This will speed up apt-get update significantly.

I presume the latest update will only be operative if you are running the latest kernel (3.9?)

All - I've read this entire thread and I'm more confused than when I started.

Is the 30JUL2013 UP ready for prime-time or should I hold off a bit more?

Thanks - patiently waiting but antsy to give it a go!

This is the testing thread. When you want to test the upcoming UP, you're at the right place.
However, your confusion tells me that you should be in the production thread: http://forums.solydxk.nl/viewforum.php?f=32
When we're done here, there will be a post in the production thread to announce the new UP.
Each UP will be released on the 6th of each month.

Yep! And, I've read the post about the UP process - didn't stick. But, I had an epiphany late last night as I was falling asleep.

My confusion :? was caused by a combintion of things:
  • Debian Testing - SolydXK follows Debian Testing. My weak brain equated those two, thinking SolydXK Testing was what was released.
  • The announcement that the UP was "ready" - didn't connect that it was ready for your testing.
  • My update manager icon has been "!" for the last couple or three days - I mis-intrepreted that to mean that the UP was ready for downloading, not realizing (until last night) that it could just mean that there are one or more packages that have been updated.
Just a comedy of errors on my part. :oops: Please excuse the interruption.

That more than just a bit funny .... and could lead to confusion.

Oh, wait a minute! I get it! We're talking about you being the confused one, aren't we :D :lol:

you're still facing this http://forums.solydxk.nl/viewtopic.php? ... 9185#p9185 problem?
but to directly answer your question: no, you don't need to be using the latest kernel in order to perform this or future UP's; you do need tho to have it installed and keep updating it (even if in real life usage you are only using the 3.2 version)

Talk of FF reminds me: Opera released a security update (version 12.16) on 4th July last month. Since I'm not following testing I'm wondering if it will be in the UP?

Hi,

the first round of kde 4.10 packages is available here:
deb http://packages.siduction.org/kdenext solydxk main

You would need the siduction-archive-keyring package. I need to update some 4.10.4 bits to 4.10.5 and talk with Schoelje to upload the packages to a SolydK repo.

The opus issue is still not fixed but we will fix it.

After the upgrade I tried to install ia32-libs back to mine system. Ia32-libs needs libopus0:i386 dependency.

Note: I have multiarch setup.

That libopus0 package is reason that it asks to remove almost every multimedia packages.
apt-get install libopus0:i386
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
Suggested packages:
opus-tools:i386
The following packages will be REMOVED:
banshee banshee-extension-soundmenu clementine espeak ffmpeg gecko-mediaplayer gnome-control-center
gnome-media gnome-mplayer gpac gpac-modules-base gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad gstreamer0.10-plugins-good

The following NEW packages will be installed:
libopus0:i386
0 upgraded, 1 newly installed, 72 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
Need to get 162 kB of archives.
After this operation, 215 MB disk space will be freed.
Any solutions for this one?

Yes, out intention is to provide a custom fixed package for opus. This problem was there for months in sid, so I already had to fix it in siduction.
