ISO testing 201504

Postby Arjen Balfoort » 25 Apr 2015 20:40

I've built new ISOs: http://downloads.solydxk.nl/nightly/
These ISOs do include today's LibreOffice updates and will be released as the new official ISOs if you consider them good enough.

I've attached a Calc sheet with test cases to help you to test.
This can be used for the CEs as well.

The 32-bit ISOs are currently being built. I don't have time to run my own tests and upload both ISOs tonight, so they should be available some time tomorrow. They also include today's LibreOffice updates.

The first EE ISOs are almost ready to be built. They will probably be based on the last frozen state of Testing, which means they will not include today's LibreOffice updates (the security announcement suggests those will have a different version number for the Unstable/Testing branch). This may change if the first batch of packages that enters the new Testing isn't too gigantic... ;)

Question, is the the "stable Jessie" version? When exactly is Debian releasing Jessie as stable or is it already released?

I been keeping updated on my PC (and am waiting for the "official" realease then will do the laptop update). Waiting for it to really be officially stable. :)

I have a lot on my plate right now so I can't do any testing. But will want to download the ISO when it's tested and ready so I can have it handy in case of reinstall.

What does the blue background on line items 1-20 indicate?

Weird, all lines should have been blue and it's just something visual, no meaning at all. I replaced the attachment in the OP.

The 32-bit ISOs have been uploaded. The should appear here in about ten minutes. They have only been (briefly) tested in a VM.

Attached you can find the .ods file with my results (SolydK 64bit; USB live mode).
Everything was quite smoothly and no errors to be reported.

Just a few additional notes:

- Touchpad: tap as left click is not enabled by default. Scrolling is possible in two-fingers mode (not single).
- Clock on the panel: with the white font is unreadable.
- Splashscreen and loading bar: I think a progressive bar cannot really represent the time left. Maybe some moving dots or a simple animation would be better (e.g. the new debian 8 one is fantastic!).
- Windows title panel is different (darker, with borders) with some applications: e.g. Playonlinux, Partition manager, sudo Kate.
- Dolphin: del moves files successfully to the trash. But if I consequently delete these files from the trash, the icon is not always updated (it does not appear as empty).
- Libreoffice Calc: comment pop-ups are not displayed correctly. Parts of the borders are shown even if the pop-up is closed until I scroll the page.
- Just a personal suggestion: another very useful add-on for Firefox is Context Search. I could not survive without it :oops:

In your .ods file the counting cells do not work as expected. :lol:

I downloaded the ISO, ran it live from USB and performed large parts of my automated post-installation and post-configuration scripts. So far, most anything looks fine, stable and clean.

If I can find the time this week, I'd like to do some more testing and commenting.
When is the closing date for submitting feedback for this testing cycle?

Nothing to report in VM installs. All good. Going to install SolydK on metal. I'll report later.
This likely means that your installation is broken. -Mr Pixbuf.

I'd like to release these together with the CEs. So, that depends on Grizzler's time-table.

Additional comments:
  • gparted is purged on installation (fom live): suggestion to leave it installed
  • there is a www-data user in /etc/passwd with non-existing homedir (apache not installed)
  • timidity user homedir, suggestion to change to /var/run/timidity to prevent pulseaudio errors on startup
  • pdbedit -Lv (smb user repository) shows (probably ancient) mint user
  • perhaps remove dir: /etc/.java ?
  • nice to see krfb replaced with X11vnc

@grizzler
I've updated the md5 files of the 32-bit uploads to the new format.

@bas_otten
Thanks for the feedback.
This is what I've done on the ISOs (X and K):

Code: Select all

userdel www-data

apt install timidity
usermod -m -d /var/run/timidity timidity

pdbedit -Lv
useradd mint
smbpasswd -x mint
smbpasswd -x nobody
userdel mint

rm -r /etc/.java

I always wondered why timidity is usually enabled by default in most Debian based distros. Who's using midi devices for typical home or business computing? It's one of the first things I always disable. One of those typical services wasting resources for nothing.

Yes, it is a waste of resources 99,5% of time. But some websites still have .midi files to be plaid on line. :-(
