Re: Packages being worked on by the Repo Team

Pale Moon 28.0.0 apparently now has an gold release: https://github.com/MoonchildProductions/UXP/releases, so I'll see about building MX packages and see when they officially announce it. It now will build on gcc-4.9 through 7, 28.1.0 will support Buster's default gcc-8. I've added some code that'll...

Re: MX Unofficial Respin

That sounds like a nice project, and I don't think MX developers would have any objections to it at all. Are you going to share it? You could put it up on a Google Drive or the like if you don't hit their download limit, or archive.org also allows software projects and no download limits, as far as ...

Re: share folders

Does the version now in our test repo work? I don't have any way to test it.

Re: how to install MX

Are you going to have Peppermint handle GRUB? If so, have the MX installer install GRUB in the root of the MX install partition instead of the boot partition, then when you update GRUB in Peppermint, it should pick up and chainload the MX GRUB automatically.

Re: Can anyone recommend to me a cheapish, current model notebook that loves Linux?

The Acer v5 I've used has a reasonably fast Skylake 2-core/4 thread i5-6500u CPU that would only draw 15 watts max if you ran it all out, and took about an hour to compile a Liquorix kernel. It was able to use va-api hardware accelerated video decoding, too, so could play h.264 4K content with the i...

Re: MX 17 Repository: The Backported Debian Kernel Thread

The backport kernel version in the test repo has now been updated to an ABI of 4.17.0-2 (4.17.14). There's no metapackage for it yet, but it can be installed in Synaptic by doing a quick search for "4.17.0-2", then installing the appropriate linux-headers and linux-image for your current platform ("...

Re: MX17 - KDE?

There may be an unofficial KDE respin by one or more of the developers, that's about it for now.

Re: Logitech MX Ergo wireless trackball mouse (yes, MX is the real name ;) )

In my experience with Solaar, it'll report 90% right up until the battery goes critically low, but that seems to depend on the device, too: https://github.com/pwr/Solaar/issues/148

Re: Packages being worked on by the Repo Team

Finished Liquorix kernel 4.17-10, which has a workaround for the MuQSS scheduler bug with cpufreq which will reduce power use at idle and extend battery life.

Debian has a new 4.17.14 kernel upstream in Sid, so will backport that before it gets to stretch-backports.

Re: A cautionary tale ... "The video wars of 2027"

Does Firefox support playing AV1 streams yet? Do any other players support the codec? I searched a few weeks ago, and couldn't find anything yea or nay...I got the impression that its encoding is still extremely slow.
