As long as you have this line in your sources.list, you're fine:

Code: Select all

deb https://repository.solydxk.com testing main upstream import
Don't forget to apt update first.

Shouldn't that be:

Code: Select all

deb https://repository.solydxk.com solydxk-ee main upstream import
or

Code: Select all

deb https://repository.solydxk.com solydxk-ee main upstream import testing
for EEs, depending on whether or not the solydxk testing component is used?

deb https://repository.solydxk.com solydxk-ee main upstream import
That is the one I have in my source list and I installed this current setup about 3 months ago

My bad! Yours and grizzler's are correct.

Very happy to hear we'll still be able to use Synaptic.
Thank you!

The source package nvidia-graphics-drivers in buster no longer provides the binary package nvidia-detect for 32-bit systems. This was to be expected (https://tweakers.net/nieuws/133243/nvid ... temen.html (in dutch) - https://nvidia.custhelp.com/app/answers ... /a_id/4604).

Would it be useful to continue to provide the 390 version for 32-bit buster? I have no experience with nvidia and absolutely no idea whether this would be sensible...

Maybe it's time to put the 32-bit CEs out of their misery...

I would second that. I' not sure when the last 32Bit-only PCs were sold - Pentium4 until 2004? hm, Intel Atoms until 2010/11. 32-Bit systems can safely stay with stretch until 2022. Is that long enough? Maybe do one last 32Bit ISO when buster gets stable and archive that? And definitely archive the last stable stretch 32bit-ISO.

I agree with Ilu.

In comparison to the 64-bit CE downloads the 32-bit downloads are negligible and for me personally it would simplify development.

I am now copying the 201902 builds to https://downloads.solydxk.com/ce/archive/

OK. I'll build one final set around the time buster goes stable.

What's up with gdebi viewtopic.php?f=78&t=7531? See https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugrepo ... bug=926633 - minor and not even a reaction since April?

Doesn't look like it's actively maintained. Look at all the open bugs... :(

Also, all updates since November 2016 were nmus (non-maintainer updates). That's never a good sign.
On top of that, the maintainers use an e-mail address on a server which has been decommissioned in June last year (alioth.debian.org).

All in all, I wouldn't expect a fix any time soon...

That's a pity. There doesn't seem to be a replacement.

Like me ilu, use it as an excuse to improve your cli foo :twisted: :twisted:

My cli foo is quite ok, thank you very much :ugeek: but my mothers and fathers and friends is not, sadly.

Also - if there's no replacement - fixing it for the greater good is what Linux is all about. And takes probably less time than all the support topics that might come up in this forum.

This is true, I have to be honest and say I used gdebi out of laziness as it easier than having to remember the correct cli incantation to install a program.
