If you track testing then the Debian "Release-critical bugs status" should be essential reading. ;-)
The red line graphs all bugs with release-critical severities; the green line graphs the number of bugs that are actually a concern for the next release (excluding ignored bugs, bugs on packages not in testing, and bugs whose tags and/or versioning information indicate that they don't apply to testing), and the blue line graphs the number of bugs that are a concern for the current stable release.

I have SolydX-ee running in a virtual machine. This morning I did a d-u normally, about 88 packages upgraded. About an hour later I absentmindedly performed another d-u. This time several new packages and 149 upgraded. Strange, but there were no removals listed and it is a vm so I went ahead and performed the upgrade.
This one removed the icon from the whiskermenu and deleted the wallpaper I had been using and substituted the default.
I fixed the whiskermenu easily but it appears the the old style SolydX wallpapers, with the name and logo centered have been removed from the machine. I have not been able to find them any on the vm.

This thread has info on some of that. Long story short: the move from the 'plain' system-adjustments packages to the numbered ones causes issues for the EEs. You need to change the sources.list file before you upgrade. Yes, that should have been mentioned earlier...

Fix:
- in sources.list, change solydxk (not the one in the url!) to solydxk-9 if you want to stay with stretch or to solydxk-ee if you prefer to keep testing
- apt update
- purge (not remove) solydx-system-adjustments-8 (or solydk-system-adjustments-8 if you're using SolydK EE)
- install solydx-system-adjustments-9 (or solydk-system-adjustments-9)

After that, /usr/share/solydxk/info should show the right information.
The directory /etc/solydxk isn't used anymore and can be deleted.

Thanks for the reply Frank.
Both of my systems were set up with solydxk-ee sources and now have the -9 adjustments package.
The main reason for my post was in case losing the X logo and changing the wallpaper was not an intended result. It is easily fixed of of course but it was quite unexpected.
All is good here now.

I adjusted my source list as above, no issue

I apt-get updated as above, no issue

When I try to apt-get purge I get this

Code: Select all

mit@lunar1 ~ $ sudo apt-get purge solydx-system-adjustments-8
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
Package 'solydx-system-adjustments-8' is not installed, so not removed
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 197 not upgraded.
Is this an issue?

No, it means that your upgrade went without issues.

I'm seeing some new messages on my Solydkee machine lately. I don't know what I did to start showing these when I do a dist-upgrade:

Ownership Changed on /home/user/.aptitude/ In SolydK-ee
I don't know when this happened but I noticed it this morning.
The first sign was apt show threw an error.

Code: Select all

 jim@x-ee-9vm ~ $ apt show ant
E: Error removing file: /home/jim/.aptitude/config
E: Could not remove old configuration file: /home/jim/.aptitude/config
E: Error saving configuration file - apt_dumpcfg (13: Permission denied)
Investigating I found that ownership of /home/jim/.aptitude was root:root. Also ls and cat would not work without elevated permissions on or in ~/.aptitude.
Changing ownership fixed the problem.

Code: Select all

#chown -R jim:jim .aptitude
I also checked the contents of the the config file, it works fine as long as the ownership is right. Also a config file copied from SolydX-ee (vm) worked in there even though it is quite different.
The only updates this morning were ant and ant-optional. wpasupplicant had bug reports so I pinned the current version.

This is getting a bit too specific for a thread about news and (general) breakage tracking Debian Testing. I'm going to move the last batch of messages to a separate thread: Wireless issue using SolydK EE.
