Re: obs-studio will not install testing

Like I posted above, then try

Code: Select all

sudo apt-install libavdevice57
to see what package is holding that one up, and so on down the chain until you find the guilty one.

Re: grub2 vers. 2.04-rc1

As an experiment, builds fail for MX 18 with gcc-6 and the experimental gcc-8 which the original debian config wants, but succeed on a vanilla Buster base. So wait for MX 19 before we go further.

Re: Xfce 4.14-pre

It's the version on the very rough MX 19 alpha... (holds it tantalizingly just out of reach of the common folk)

Tim ported it over. I think he or Jerry mentioned that it requires GTK 3 >= 3.24 to build, which puts it out of reach of a Stretch based distro.

Re: Wifi device not detected in MX

Does the device have any sort of FCC information on it or on the packaging? I know you're not in the USA, but the manufacturer might have it on it anyway.

Re: Thanks Stevo

Liquorix now provides builds for Stretch, so we're planning to have MXPI switch over to installing from their repo pretty soon. One change is that their build now defaults to the performance setting for CPU scaling, so the CPU readouts always say its at the top speed. But it doesn't use any more pow...

Re: obs-studio will not install testing

Anything interesting with sudo apt-get -f install ? Otherwise, I'd try sudo apt install obs-plugins to see why it can't do that. When it says some other package can't be installed, try manually installing that instead with apt-get, and so on until you get down to the one that is causing the problem ...

Re: Install dvdrip

If we can have Handbrake, I don't see why not dvdrip. It apparently is a front end to transcode, which is in our test repo.
