I'll take this as a "nice to have".
For the majority (pointing to our repositories, and not mixing with other repositories) UM works fine as it is now.

There are more pressing matters that need testing right now:
  • PAE/Nvidia breaks.
  • We haven't tested BE/BO yet.
  • SolydX32 hasn't been tested yet.

Stelios
regarding this UM question, i'm in a similar situation (see this topic http://forums.solydxk.nl/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=3411);
UM reports 4 (in my case) upgradeable packages but in reality it doesn't upgrade them.
this is the result of the

Code: Select all

apt-show-versions -u
output but this command can't overwrite pin-preferences (or any other mechanism in use like, eventually, apt-mark)

in my particular situation, the 4 lib that are shown as "upgradeable" don't exist in testing and apt-show-versions sees the newest version in my enabled sid repo (hence they appear in UM) but apt policy shows that the now obsolete testing version is still the "version candidate" (so it matches what my pinning wants)

i got the 3 updates (gdebi, gdebi-kde flash) through UM, it installed them without problem (even though before it had those 4 libs as upgradeable) and after that it came back to show again the 4.

I've just reinstalled the Jan 32 bit ISO (again) and am now ready to have another go at the upgrade.
Last time, after changing to the testing repos as per Schoelje's first post and then runnung apt-get update I got the following:

Code: Select all

Failed to fetch http://packages.solydxk.com/testing/dists/solydxk/InRelease  Unable to find expected entry 'solydxk/binary-i386/Packages' in Release file (Wrong sources.list entry or malformed file): W: Failed to fetch http://debian.solydxk.com/testing/dists/testing/InRelease  Unable to find expected entry 'testing/binary-i386/Packages' in Release file (Wrong sources.list entry or malformed file): W: Failed to fetch http://debian.solydxk.com/testing/multimedia/dists/testing/Release  Unable to find expected entry 'testing/binary-i386/Packages' in Release file (Wrong sources.list entry or malformed file): E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead. 
Does this mean that there is a repo that I missed? I have just those test five enabled.
I'm asking because I don't want to 'mess up'. :)
Thanks.

I see the line "Wrong sources.list entry or malformed file" which makes me think the copy-paste action did not go well ;)
I just followed my own instructions, and had no problems.

Ok, I want to do some tests but after reading the OP, which test ods do I download? Or do you have enough testers (did I miss again?)

I can do ONE of the following:

SolydK 64 in VM
SolydX 64 in VM
SolydK 32 in VM
SolydX 32 in VM

SolydK 64 booting up to it's own partition
SolydX 64 booting up to it's own partition

Let me know what you need and what .ods to get.

@RavenLX
- you should use the spreadsheet under the red highlight.
- what graphic card you have in the HP? at this point bare metal installations would be better and nvidia would be awesome :lol:

I'll check it on the bootable SolydX and bootable SolydK which I keep around just for testing.

Graphics card isn't an nvidia. It's an Intel (built in):

Code: Select all

ravenlx@solydk-main ~ $ inxi -G
Graphics:  Card: Intel 2nd Generation Core Processor Family Integrated Graphics Controller 
           X.Org: 1.14.5 drivers: intel (unloaded: fbdev,vesa) Resolution: 1600x900@60.0hz 
           GLX Renderer: Mesa DRI Intel Sandybridge Mobile GLX Version: 3.0 Mesa 9.2.2
Unfortunately, I don't have any nvidia machines (outside of an old Android tablet which I'm sure I can't install SolydXK on).

I'm currently doing some backups and when those are done (hopefully later today) I'll be testing the SolydX/SolydK 64.

My update manager had a check mark icon.
When I clicked on it it said there was 1 update and that update was Google Chrome.
When does the new update manager notify me that there is a new update?

Tested UM test case for SolydK 64 using a booted installation (not a VM). That version had the 2014-01 installed on it. Updated to 2014-04.

Had a few issues. Notably, the icon for the UM would not change from "No internet connection" even on reboot even though WiFi was in fact connected. Also the sound going up to 100% all the time - that issue is not fixed. Other things are noted in my .ods. I provided text and screen grabs of various points for reference. All in the attached zipped tarballs. (I had to split this all up since making a tar.gz of them all in one was too big for the forum upload).

Also it had completely blitzed my Grub menu. I almost couldn't find my way back to my production installation. After saving the .ods I figured it out, thankfully. But it wasn't an easy way to find it, having to go through the (1) Advanced Options to get to it.

Hello,

I changed "production" to "testing" in /etc/apt/sources.list, then "sudo apt-get update". After UM was updated to 2.0.1, I only saw the update instructions. After some initial confusion due to the advice to move blacklisted applications in the Preferences tab (my Preferences window has none), I managed to carry out the updates by hitting the Packages tab then Install tab.

After reboot, the UM icon shows "No Internet connection", despite Network Manager showing an Internet connection. This continues until today. When turning on the PC or after reboot I still have to enter default keyring password, so that the icon shows the asterisk symbol then information on update status. UM icon then shows a blue check mark to indicate I am up to date. Is this "No Internet Connection" icon a temporary feature, or will it be replaced once 01/04/2014 Testing is completed?

Test case: Terminal Testing Results (SolydK 64, not in VM). For this, I did a fresh install from ISO 2014-01. The other test I used the testing version I had on hand that was updated to 2014-01.

Pretty much the same as with the UM except thunderbird behaved oddly - didn't switch everything to Spanish, just calendar. Also tested two more things:

- Dolphin still crashes when unzipping a password protected zip and using the wrong password.
- Firewall settings gives error when adding new firewall rule (still).
- Bug in LibreOffice Calc is fixed: No longer crashes when moving groups of cells within the spreadsheet.

Attached is the full test results and attachements (I could fit the revised .ods, screen shots, and .txt logs in one zipped tarball).

Well, that'll be it for me tonight. I have to be up early tomorrow as I have an appointmet to get my car repaired (starter stopped working). I'll see if I can find time to test 64-bit SolydK ISOs (2014-04) if I have time as I saw a tab in the spreadsheet for it. If they aren't available I'll go on ahead with SolydX 64 (which I hope to do all the tests for as well).

Again, I'm using the bootable partitions and not virtual machines for my testing.

Well, I have just done the update using the UM on a fresh install of the Jan 32 bit ISO. It actually worked without a hitch.
Unfortunately I forgot to load the nvidia driver before doing the update, so I could not check to see if the reload after installing the UP would work this time.
I installed nvidia after the update and it also went well.

BONUS: The annoying shut down of firefox after running from an email link seems to be gone.

NONBONUS: The extra bookmarks on thefirefox bookmarks toolbar now has a black background and black print! (I'll have to look in preferences for a way to set this right).

BTW When the new UM is installed it returns to showing the update information. Clicking on packages gives the package information (a huge list), but the install icon in the toolbar is very faint. Maybe a mention somewhere to then click it would be nice?

I won't have much time for the next few days. I haven't filled out another spreadsheet. What can I say? All the things that didn't work last time have worked this time, including the UM. Great work you developers! :D

PS: @Schoelji - If you would like me to have another go with the nvidia driver already installed in the Jan ISO please let me know.

I looked at the OP and see that there's no 2014-04 ISO (yet) even though there's a tab for the ISO in the spreadsheet.

So, today I'll be working on the SolydX 64 testing. I'll do like I did before - verify I have a January UP version of SolydX already installed (I believe I do) and do UM. Then fresh install SolydX 64 and do a terminal test case.

Before I do that though, I'll be reinstalling SolydK 64 with a fresh January UP so that I have it ready for next round of tests (if needed) *and* Grub is back to the January version setup so I can test that.

Finished SolydX 64 Testing (not in VM - booted directly into partition).

UM Test Case: (upgraded from a pre-installed installation that was updated to 2014-01 UP). Thunderbird crashed after enabling a series of add-ons that kept giving popups.

Terminal Test Case: (Used a fresh install from 2014-01 UP ISO) During install I had to scroll through some documentation on certificates not included or something, and then press 'q' to quit. Other than that and two other small things, everything seemed to do ok.

Both: SSL required a confusing dialog about ntp (screenshot in UM test case archive).

NOTE: I had to make a separate upload of the terminal log (from UM test case) as it was too big to upload in with everything else.

One little problem: After all that goofing around with the Grub menus, I found that even after loading and running Grub Configurator, I can't get my grub menu back the way I had it originally. It's not using the new Grub as I reinstalled the 2014-01 ISO back to both testing partitions (one for SolydX and one for SolydK). So Grub (should be) back to original. However, the menu is just a list of installs (including some that are no longer working) and the default isn't my production one so I'll have to scroll down each time it boots to get where I need to go.

Anyone know how I can fix that and reset the menus or maybe even get my menus back?
