Installation went fine, no issues. Installer works nicely (I use manual partitioning, as I have 4 other OS's on this box).

1. PAE install with DDM = No issues

2. Nvidia Install with DDM = Problems as noted in post

http://forums.solydxk.nl/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=7#p13

3. Video fine (tested YouTube) [note; I use Chrome - Version 25.0.1364.84 beta] Java turned OFF

4. Sound = Had issues as with Unofficial LMDE-XFCE.
Had to install PulseAudio Volume Control

Code: Select all

gene@solydx:~$ apt-cache policy pavucontrol
pavucontrol:
  Installed: 1.0-1
  Candidate: 1.0-1
  Version table:
 *** 1.0-1 0
        900 http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ testing/main i386 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
Image
and turn off sound devices not used. Possibly not an issue for those with just one sound card (I have three options).

5. Printing = Printer detected and drivers install with no input from me. Test page printed fine.

6. Cannot change icon themes when using default 'Oxygen-GTK" theme (know issue).
Other Themes that work.(just a few)
A. Mint-Z
B. Zukitwo
C. Gnomish Gray
D. Bluebird
E. Adwaita
F. Gnome cupertino

7. Debian Plymouth Manager = Issues (I always have issues with Plymouth after installing Nvidia). Right now I just have a blue progress bar at bottom of screen. It ususally resolves itself after several boots (for whatever reason). Had the same problem with Unofficial LMDE-XFCE, but its working fine there.

8. Synaptic "Mark All Upgrades" fix isn't persistent. (Reverts after re-boot)
Fix from Mint forums
http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.p ... 49&start=0
Roken wrote:
OK - here's the fix.

If you haven't already (or if you've rebooted) reinstall synaptic.

Now, before you reboot open a terminal and:

Code: Select all

sudo gedit /etc/linuxmint/adjustments/10-mintsystem-synaptic.preserve
This will create a new text file. Add the following two lines to the file:

Code: Select all

/usr/share/synaptic/glade/window_main.glade
/usr/share/synaptic/gtkbuilder/window_main.ui
Save. Now your "Mark All Upgrades" button should be back and surviving reboots. To revert to default mint behaviour:

Code: Select all

sudo rm /etc/linuxmint/adjustments/10-mintsystem-synaptic.preserve
This is the correct way to disable the mintsystem change to synaptic (based on examination of the mintsystem script) and should survive updates in the future.
I noted that the
/etc/linuxmint/adjustments/10-mintsystem-synaptic.preserve
was already there, and re-installed Synaptic, but it does not 'stick' on re-boot>


8. Added to repos:

Code: Select all

deb http://packages.solydxk.com/ solydxk main upstream import
and received these updates.

Commit Log for Wed Feb 13 17:33:55 2013

Code: Select all

Upgraded the following packages:
dpm (2.0.0) to 2.0.0
firefox (17.0~linuxmint1+lmde) to 18.0.1
firefox-l10n-en-us (17.0~linuxmint1+lmde) to 18.0.1
solydxk-softwaremanager (7.4.4) to 7.4.4
Eveything else tested works just fine.
Very happy with this distro... ;)

Hi GeneC,

I thought you were going to take it easy!

Well, let's try to react on each subject separately:
1. OK
2. When you upload the seed file as mentioned in my last post in the DDM thread, I'll maybe have a lead for the solution.
3. OK
4. I'll install pavucontrol by default in the next iso.
5. OK
6. That's a "feature" of the Oxygen theme: you'll need to change the theme and then logout and login.
7. Could you post these files:

Code: Select all

/etc/default/grub
/etc/initramfs-tools/modules
and check if there is a .conf file in /etc/modprobe.d that blacklists nouveau (it should).
8. I'm going to take that out completely. So, it should be fixed in the next iso.
9. OK

Had some issues getting on the forums.
OK, now.... ;)

Blacklisted Nouveau in etc/default/grub
Still no Plymouth.
Let me try different themes, and resolutions.

Perhaps the problem for me was a multiboot (5 distro) computer using "Grub Customizer". After installation of your iso I had an issue with a different partition and had to re-install a clone of the distro on that partition. It re-installed and updated its own grub (with grub-customizer setting). I am leaning to think this was the issue with Plymouth not loading until i did a sudo-update-grub on THAT partition..

I hardly have a 'typical' setup... :roll: , and no doubt will have 'unique' issues.... :lol:

Just a little thing, but something to put on 'back-burner'.. ;)

Thunar Custom Action MD5 Checksum does not seem to work as is.

Image

Code: Select all

gene@solydx:~$ solydxk-md5sum
bash: solydxk-md5sum: command not found

I added my own Custom Action (after installing gtkhash, thunar-gtkhash). I had assumed that thunar-gtkhash would have made its own thunar entry, but did not see it?

Any way I made this, and it works

Image

and under "Appearance Conditions" tab

Code: Select all

*.iso
and check 'Other Files'

Synaptic "Mark All Upgrades" fix

I found the reason why this fix doesnt work.... :idea:

mintsystem is no longer, its now soldyxk-system

Simply change the path (and name) for the new file from (I had installed gedit)
FROM:

Code: Select all

sudo gedit /etc/linuxmint/adjustments/10-mintsystem-synaptic.preserve
TO:

Code: Select all

sudo gedit /etc/solydxk/adjustments/10-solydxk-system-synaptic.preserve
I tested it and it works...

There probably is a more elegant fix to solydxk-system ?

Hi! I was working on install for LMDE Xfce and followed here. Decided to download SolydX32 (twice) to check it out. Both times Md5 Sum does not match the one posted on the download page. I know this is a work in progress, should I wait for the "official" ;) ISO download with the sites Grand Opening March 1st?

Hi CjTX2.

Welcome to the forums, and SolydXK... :)

I have to say that I had similar issues. Had to try a couple downloads before successful. Schoelje thought it was a problem with my ISP, but I thought maybe something with the mirror.
I had what seemed to be one complete iso download, but the MD5 (like yours, was wrong), and the total size was way to small.
Problems with download of SolydX 64-bit (direct)

3 failures

2 download tries = unknow network error

3rd = solydx64_latest.iso =

679.2 MB, (should be 947MB)

md5 = ac457ec9b2aaef5b52f8dfbf92a9a823, (should be = 9897a3c6f748ffaa30ee1fb1e94b5722)

Dont know if its at my end or yours.
Will try again this evening....
Where are you. I am in the US, Maine.
The folks who had no issues downloading are from Europe.

After another try, I was finally successful.
