Since the LO/Apparmor problemon KDE is not related to new ISO but needs to find a suitable solution - which purging apparmor is NOT - I've opened a new thread here: posting.php?mode=post&f=7.

Another cleanup item : fontconfig sabotages full removal of fonts.

When you purge a package, dpkg won't remove non-empty directories. Unfortunately, during its trigger phase, fontconfig writes .uuid files into every single directory in /usr/share/fonts, which causes the directories of the fonts that were just removed (but not purged yet, as dpkg does that last) to be non-empty.

I've removed the lot manually from the EE ISO structures. There may be a couple in the stable ones as well.

Got a similar dpkg warning about /usr/share/icons/HighContrast/48x48/apps (both EEs) and /etc/texmf (SolydX EE), by the way.

Yes, the ISOs had them too.

I created this bash:

Code: Select all

#!/bin/bash

# Remove empty directories recursively
STARTDIR='/usr/share/fonts'

LOOP=true
while $LOOP; do
    LOOP=false
    for D in $(find $STARTDIR -depth -type d); do
        if (( $(ls "$D" | wc -l) == 0 )); then
            rm -rv "$D"
            LOOP=true
        fi
    done
done

For the time being, I've uploaded mugshot from sid to our repostory.
And this now blocks upgrading mugshot on the EEs...

Could you remove it from the solydxk-11/-ee section, please?

Thanks.

Next issue: it looks like /usr/share/python-apt/templates/SolydXK.info (package solydxk-system) needs updating.

I didn't check the mirrors in /usr/share/python-apt/templates/SolydXK.mirrors. Are they still up-to-date?

I tested SolydK and LibreOffice in a VM and could not replicate the problem bas_otten reported.

See my reply here: viewtopic.php?f=7&p=70934&sid=a7f4fbdbb ... 55e#p70934
For now I do not see a reason to hold back the release of SolydK on this issue.

Currently there are only new translations for the SolydXK packages.

I think it is time to release the ISOs.

Do you agree?

Maybe one thing regarding the SolydX ISO.

The package qt4-qtconfig isn't much use anymore. There's a replacement for Qt5: qt5ct. Very useful if you have something like KeePassXC running and get fed up with it being the only thing not obeying your dark theme setting...

I'm definitely going to include it on the EE.

It requires a small change to the ~/.profile file by the way - adding one line:

Code: Select all

export QT_QPA_PLATFORMTHEME="qt5ct"

I've installed SolydX on several Dell laptops and older desktops.

Little thing I noticed so far: viewtopic.php?f=79&t=7623&p=70983#p70983.

Also I noticed that the packages sane and sane-utils somehow fell victim to our purge efforts. That should not have happened.

I'm also wondering about the advertising on firefox-esr newtab viewtopic.php?f=78&t=7627&p=70985#p70985. Pocket is disabled but still shows up?

Everything else went well.

I have commented on the live-installer and firefox-esr topics.

I'll install sane and sane-utils again.

Curious. The SolydX ISO still has /etc/solydxk and contents. It's not on the EEs, because it was removed more than two years ago.

Even more curious is /etc/fstab.d. This was a short lived experiment (by the util-linux developers) and also removed (many) years ago. Yet it shows up on all the ISOs, EEs included (even though my script still has it in the 'remove section' and so removes it on every update). Modification date is in August 2019, so recently recreated. Any idea what does that?

/etc/solydxk was not on SolydK. I removed it manually from the SolydX ISO.

The /etc/fstab.d directory was created by the live-installer-3 because live-config seemed to need it. I remember that when I removed it, I couldn't get passed lightdm. I just tried again without the directory and I had no issue login in. I've updated live-installer-3.

OK.

I noticed you put qt5ct on the SolydK ISO as well. Not sure that's usefull...

Correction: I noticed you only put it on the SolydK ISO. I think you picked the wrong one...

Got different sha256 files for the same iso files 'solydk_10_64_201909.iso' and 'solydx_10_64_201909.iso'. I downloaded all files from 'https://downloads.solydxk.com/nightly/'
These sha256 files show-

Are the files changed without chang in the names?

I never had so many problems in downloading the isos in past 10 years.
1) In torrent download, 0 peers and no tracker.
2) Firefox could not resume and lost the earlier downloaded 1.5 GiB file.
3) So installed kget and downloaded again, but the sha256 checksums does not match. It is not bootable in virtual box when mounted in cd drive. Moreover k3b warns that the file is not a valid image file.
4) Not getting peers to repair downloaded iso file.

Should I try again to download the iso with kget or better to wait for release of final solydk-10 torrent and attempt torrent download?
When the final solydk-10 release is expected?

Until they are released they are updated regularly if not often, especially when a new release is coming. As you found out, there is a risk of downloading an ISO while they are updated. It is better to wait until the new ISOs are released or download during the night (Europe).

There is no release date set, but I expect that it will not take more than another more two weeks.

This weekend I have some time. So, now that there are not much to do anymore I plan to release the ISOs.
Agreed?

Ah there are new ISOs. Downloading.

Since there was nothing we could do to further clean up FF ESR I think we are good.

Edit: Something minor I always forget: Why does the boot menu have such a pixel-y font? On live ISO as well as after install? On VM and on metal. The fonts used to have a good resolution.
