trying to get tv capture card working in g mx linux

I have a few Hauppauge dvr cards that currently work in win 10 but I would like to stop using win10 & switch setup over to linux. Unfortunately Hauppauge only contracted a 3rd party developer to get drivers working in ubuntu. I am not a fan of ubuntu. This means to access the right drivers & firmwar...

It is no longer supported by creator but he has done security updates on windows version. Since Thunderbird's last update went the sam...

[Solved] request for Openjdk 10

Hi,

Current offering in the repo is for java 8. Could you please offer java 10? I am trying to build a docker which uses java 10. It would make my life easier to have a click & install option.

Re: Marvell Technology Group Ltd. 88SE9123 PCIe SATA 6.0 Gb/s controller

I like Sagetv so hoping to get that working under MX Linux. Currently running it off win 10 but want to convert over to linux exclusively i...
