Re: Patched Kernal Problems

No , you need either the Debian patched standard kernel or a kernel based on 4.14-12 or better. For Liquorix, this would essentially mean the latest version you can get. You need the Nvidia driver from the MX 16 backports repo in order to support the 4.14 kernel.

Re: wine installation troubles

Does the script install wine-staging or winehq-staging? Winehq-staging doesn't have any trouble in a test Vbox 64-bit install.

Re: gqrx-sdr & gnuradio

It's already done and sent up to the test repo. Once I had invested the time in the first big build of gnuradio, I was reluctant to let that go to waste. But I have no way to test the programs myself. Often backports will come in very useful later down the road for unrelated projects. An older meson...

Re: wine installation troubles

Usually we have to investigate why we can't install libpulse0:i386, then. For what it's worth, I have it installed.

Re: Pix (Mint Xapp) (edit: not required)

We can do that, but I have a backlog of builds at the moment.

Edit: rebuild of pix headed to the main MX 17 repo.

Re: MX-16.1: Great application for easy photo enhancement - forgot name of application

Was it installed in MX by default? It wasn't Shotwell? or gThumbs? or something out of left field like an XnView application?

Re: Packages being worked on by the Repo Team

Wow, that was quick for backports. I didn't see anything about them fixing the missing libelf-dev header dependency in the upstream changelog, though. Maybe I can get Mike to work on that kernel with his new monster Xeon workstation...I don't know if he got the single or dual Xeon setup though.

Re: MX-17 package request: RetroShare 0.6.3

Just a note: if there already exists a repository with .deb packages and debianized source, such as in a PPA, this makes the task of porting it over to MX immensely easier. There is an official PPA for Retroshare, run by the developers.

Re: Packages being worked on by the Repo Team

Looking at:

Virtual Box 5.2.6 (patched to add 4.15 kernel support)
uGet 2.2.0
qBittorrent 4.0.3
a backport of the upstream Debian 4.14.13 kernel
Vlc 3.0 rc6

Re: how to find folder

Of course, on the command line, you'd would not even need to "find" it": rm -rf ~/.mozilla (remove the folder and everything in it, and don't error out if it's not present) Probably that article assumed the user already knew that "~" is a shortcut to the current user's home ...
