Re: MX 15/16 Repository: The YACReader Thread

OK, I fixed that in the control file for the MX builds, then. It's good to see that it's totally open. The OBS doesn't pay any attention to those man/contrib/non-free sections, of course.

Re: MX 15/16 Repository: The YACReader Thread

Hmmm...why is YACReader in the contrib section, anyway? Does it suggest a non-free package?

Re: MX 15/16 Repository: The YACReader Thread

OK, thanks! I see you have the Debian testing and Debian Stretch armhf repos enabled now. ;)

Oh, the testing version didn't build because of a quirk in the OBS for testing. You can fix that by specifically listing libcomerr2 as a build-depend so it does not get hung up with a choice.

They will also be launching a couple test communication satellites of their own along with Spain's. They want to launch up to 4,000 of those into polar orbit from Vandenberg to provide worldwide high-speed Internet, which means these launches would become a regular thing. where can we find more inf...

Re: Suggestions for Future Versions

There are still people who use modems (unfortunately it's a fact of life especially in rural communities) what do you suggest instead? Hi Adrian. I actually didn't think anyone used dial-up anymore. I guess if a tiny few still use it, then maybe leave it in. My bet is that more than a 'tiny few' st...

Re: MX 17 Repository: The wine-staging thread

It appears that the original wine-staging maintainers are no longer going to be involved. https://www.wine-staging.com/news/2018- ... aging.html

Perhaps that fork they linked on github will keep it going...let's see what happens.

Re: Future of Wine-staging uncertain

Does that Wine 3.0 add new programs to the menu like our version of wine-staging? We could backport the stable 3.0 from Buster to our own repos, but we might have to do a bit of tweaking if not.

Re: [Solved] MX Linux freezing

Bug reports for deb-multimedia's VLC should go to them, if that's what's you're using. I wonder what codec that problem video is using. One way to get that is to install mediainfo, or just use "ffmpeg -i <file> --hide-banner" on the command line.
