Re: Distrowatch reveiw grumbles

Was the Swedish repo one of those very short-lived vincz ones? I thought we got rid of those for 17.1--if so, this person must be complaining about an unupdated MX 17, not 17.1. Too bad the reviews don't allow comments...

Re: Gnucash 3

Re: MX 17 Repository: The VLC Thread

You should move the problems with the Debian version of 3.0.2 to their own thread, since this thread is for the versions we have in our own repositories. You can check what version you have installed in Synaptic, or in a terminal with "apt show vlc". Debian updated to 3.0.2 apparently because the 2....

Re: Packages being worked on by the Repo Team

It will run at 3.9 Ghz if the CPU is cool enough, with one core being able to jump to 4.1 for a time, but it currently is throttling down to 3.2 on sustained long builds and maintains temps of about 175 F (80 C) at that load.
