@Schoelje
isn't python-kde4 and python3-pykde4 showing as removals?

Code: Select all

The following packages will be REMOVED:
  gdebi-kde kde-config-touchpad plasma-scriptengine-python plasma-widget-facebook python-kde4 python3-pykde4 software-properties-kde userconfig

Yes, but I installed those removed packages after the dist-upgrade, and that went fine.

What should my Sourcel.list file look like for debian testing to match what everyone else here is doing. I'm installing a new debian testing in my virtual box.
Thanks
Dan

ahh, you have a different starting point; if it is a debian proper install i wouldn't recommend to use those sources.list (not without tweaking the system first: you'll need to convert debian to SolydXK and then you should be OK)

in your situation i would add contrib non-free [if you don't care about Debian's DFSG to the main and security repo;

deb-multimedia is an option that you need to make: we are testing its exclusion from the isos;

i can't find references to jessie-updates and jessie-backports
are you getting a clean apt-get update with those repos?

I had a debian solydxk testing system and during an update kde broke and I couldn't get it back so I decided to start from here.
KDE is working now and shows 4.13.1 installed.
I will build solydxk repos back in to make it more to what testing needs to look like for solydxk.
here is my apt-get update:

unfortunately if you have wireless internet it will break still during the packages configuration and only with CLI you will be able to connect again;
so this isn't a viable solution (thinking about the UP) if the problem is not solved until then.
tomorrow i will reinstall the system and try a different approach:
downgrade first python-kde4 and python3-pykde4 (specifying the version i need) and then D-U)
[i simulated this before and apparently was possible, let's see]

Ok I tried to reinstall gdebi-kde with apt but was not able due to unmet dependencies. So then used aptitude which accually worked. Also had about 50 updates today but all went smooth. :o

It seems that we can't make a live ISO with current Debian testing.
Fortunately, with our new repositories, I can manipulate our own Debian repository. If things don't improve with the next UP, I can remove those packages from our repository.

Looks like debian testing is switching to systemD. SysVinit is removed and after rebooting all seemed good till got to desktop. No audio, Yawp is not connecting to internet, Firefox works for few seconds then freezes up solid unless you give it several minutes then all seems fine. I think its Kde issue since klipper didn't start either. Looks like it might be a little dangerous to update to testing today. Now to see if I can get these things fixed :oops:

Make sure you have these installed:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install systemd  systemd-sysv  systemd-ui
and check that /etc/rc.local is empty (at least comment any commands in that file).

With the current testing repositories I have prepared the upcoming ISOs...all with systemd.

Are you using kdenext?
We're dropping kdenext, and grizzler has made a great script to remove kdenext from your system, and safely downgrade all packages: http://forums.solydxk.nl/viewtopic.php?p=39002#p39002
Run with:

Code: Select all

un-kdenext -d
