Thanks,

I noticed it was no longer in testing, but it's in solydx 8 testing, my system must be old all I had was solydx 8 for a long time until now.

I'll just get it from the stable branch.

Last full set of 2018 is on the way. Should be available here in an hour or two. Not tested, as usual, but the 64-bit EEs did boot in a VM.

The EEs have kernel 4.19, so this bug is no longer relevant.

I made an announcement of this topic so that it shows at the top of the Testing Zone forum.

Six new ISOs. Just started the upload. They should be available here in one or two hours. Not tested, as usual.

I'm not sure about the quality of the SolydK EEs. I tried the 64-bit one briefly in a VM and it was more sluggish than usual. Could be a VirtualBox issue, as running the SolydX EE 64 one also took quite a bit of CPU time, but it remained responsive...

Just started the upload of the final two 32-bit SolydXK 9 (stretch) ISOs. They should be available here at the top of the hour.

They start up in a VirtualBox VM (SolydK takes a very long time, as usual...) and Firefox runs and that's about all the testing I have done...

New EE ISOs will be made available once things have been set up for bullseye. The Debian repo for bullseye seems to be ready, but I don'ŧ think EE points to SolydXK 11 yet...

I've just created a new repository solydxk-11, a copy of solydxk-10 minus the imported virtualbox packages. This is also the new solydxk-ee repository. I won't be able to check if it is set up correctly. So, if somebody would like to test the new repository, I'd really appreciate that.

A quick test doesn't show any obvious issues. However, looking at the release files in dists/solydxk-ee I see references to SolydXK 10, not 11.
I have to admit I don't remember how exactly this has been set up. Wasn't one of these 'branches' a symlink of the other? In that case I would expect to see the same files in both.

After changing the release channel to stable I'm getting a cryptsetup warning - it's a VM and I didn't do encryption. No idea whether that will happen on metal too. Also no problem really just annoying.

I forgot to let reprepro re-create the symlinks. It should be fixed now.

That's a buster thing. I've been seeing this for ages when updating/upgrading my own system or the EE ISOs and the initramfs needs to be regenerated.
