Re: MX 17 Repository: The Backported Debian Kernel Thread

The "4.17.0-1" kernel in the test repo is now upgraded to a version based on 4.17.2. Since it has the same ABI (-1) as the 4.17.0 version, it will upgrade over that version. I'm not sure if DKMS drivers will automatically rebuild during the upgrade...if you don't see them doing that, you could reins...

Re: MX 17 Repository: The Stellarium Thread

Per a request, I've rolled the Stellarium 0.12.9 release, meant for machines not capable of running newer versions, into separate stellarium-qt4 packages in the MX 15/16 and 17 test repos. It should conflict with and remove the regular stellarium packages.

Re: MX 17 Repository: The Handbrake Thread

The latest 1.1.1 release has landed in the test repo, adapted from the Sid version in deb-multimedia. This backport is built against backports of the latest x264 and x265 from upstream Debian in hopes of improving transcoding performance. Please let us know how it installs and performs if you give i...

Re: Gis Weather not loading for some reason, looking for substitute

@Eadwine Rose, you mentioned, "First, make sure you have jq and curl installed on your system." I have curl but can't find jq. Where might it be found? By another name? Thanks. Are you running MX17? It's there. ksnip_20180623$.png In another thread, "inxi -r" just showed that Richard doesn't have t...

Re: the Abiword thread

"inxi -r" shows that you're missing the main Debian repo entry..you only have the security update repos enabled for Stretch. Do you have any idea what happened to it? This is why you can't install anything from the main Debian repo.

Repo manager might be able to restore it.

Re: the Abiword thread

Abiword-common is indeed in the standard Debian repo, so the results of

Code: Select all

inxi -r
and

Code: Select all

sudo apt update
should expose whatever's going wrong. You probably just have to switch to another Debian mirror.
