Running tests now. Don't have time to fill in the spreadsheet. Some notes in this posting.
Started live system in a VBox VM. After menu, still takes several minutes to show up (known issue).
Desktop looks OK.
ID-files (/etc/issue, /etc/lsb-release etcetera) OK.
History clean (root too).
Sources list OK.
According to uname -a, kernel is 4.19.0-5, yet /boot shows 4.19.0-6 is installed as well. So why was -5 the default menu choice? Why two kernels anyway?
Firefox & Thunderbird seem OK.
Ctrl+Alt+Backspace works. Logging in again works.
Installing (using terminal, just in case...).
First two lines:
Code: Select all
/etc/live-installer-3/live-installer-3.conf: line 6: --assume-yes: command not found
/etc/live-installer-3/live-installer-3.conf: line 7: --quiet: command not found
Several GTK-warnings (don't you just love the ever moving target of GTK-3...).
Rebooted into installed SolydK.
Menu screen looks odd. Very 'pixelated' text in the actual menu, while the help text near the bottom of the screen looks fine.
Installed GParted and FileZilla on the Welcome screen. Afterwards - that is after the Welcome package confirmed they were installed - moving to the next page made a warning pop up about packages to install (looks like something doesn't get cleared properly). After that, the Welcome screen locked up. Didn't respond to anything. Using killall solydxk-welcome from the terminal seemed to kill the process, but the Welcome page stayed on screen and couldn't be removed.
Checking the rest: nothing special to report.
Starting the live system as above. No issues, except for the same kernel oddity.
Firefox opens with three tabs and on the first one, claims that it's out of date. For Mozilla, ESRs don't count, apparently. Missed this when looking at SolydK.
Installing, same as above.
Reboot. Same ugly menu.
Installed Flash on the Welcome screen and got the same superfluous warning afterwards, but this time I closed the warning with the close icon top right and the Welcome application remained responsive. Tried a couple of others (first FileZilla, then GParted - separately). Superfluous warning every time, but no lockup. Must have been a gremlin on SolydK.
Did notice another oddity. When I installed GParted, the 'Installed successfully' message came up immediately and all three option icons on that frame showed up selected. The third item (VirtualBox) had not been installed though, but GParted had. And there's no way it could have been installed in a fraction of a second. Don't know what to make of this...
Firefox didn't claim to be out of date this time.
Checking the rest: nothing special to report. Did check the current/known issues mentioned here and elsewhere - nothing to add.
Terminal logs attached.
A python alternative? Seriously? I can't believe that's something Debian provided, considering there was a thread on debian-devel about whether this was required or not. That was several years ago, when stretch was testing. At that time, the consensus was that 'python' would never mean anything other than python 2, so no. PEP 394
was very clear about it too, but I see they have more or less accepted several Linux distribution's bad judgement on this and no longer 'dictate' that. Still, Debian hasn't changed its mind, so why do we
