SolydXK-Welcome not able to download on new installation

Postby tardy » 24 Apr 2018 19:09

This seems related to the recent server migration. The ISO I used was downloaded earlier today.

I just installed SolydK-9 on a friend's laptop, and although I had an internet connection in the live environment, the installer complained that there was no internet connection available.

Of course I installed anyway, and upon reboot, the SolydXK Welcome screen once again complained that there was no internet connection.

Referencing this thread (post #7) I installed apt-transport-https via Synaptic, still Welcome thought there was no connection.

I got it working by manually editing the sources.list to change the repository.solydxk.com url to https://repository.solydxk.nl.

Just letting you know.

Thanks for reporting.
I've updated live-installer, solydxk-welcome and solydxk-system.

It was kind of amusing how, after recommending Solyd as my friend's first foray into Linux on the basis of "everything just works, no problems anywhere!" the first thing he sees is that I have a "problem" installing it :oops: . Thankfully not a big problem, and one that was quickly and easily fixed.

He's pretty impressed with SolydK so far, but of course, everyone is impresssed with Solyd. What a great distro! :clap:
