Re: Updating as a regular user

Debian buster has unattended-upgrades enabled by default so I'm not sure if that's true. FWIW our family laptop runs Debian stable with unattended-upgrades enabled for all the repositories and it's been fine for several years now, including many kernel & GRUB updates. But perhaps things would be di...

Re: Systemd free MX19?

...that poll only asks what people are using, the default is of course going to win. It doesn't ask what init you would choose if only left with one choice. I'd add, what would you choose if your apps and other parts of your computer Only work with systemd? On the other hand, for users who have bee...

Re: No swap in fstab

Its a Debian thing - I would get the eternal 90sec wait on each distro - had 15x partitions/distros Discovered the 'format, not to format cause' - but not all installers are created equally Eliminated the swap-file - had plenty RAM - skipped over the swap-file warnings - all copacetic Regards Jack ...

Re: No swap in fstab

I stumbled over the cause of this. I have a multi-boot environment with 4 or 5 distributions installed at any particular time. Whenever a new distribution is installed, it reformats the swap partition, which, by definition, changes the UUID of that partition. This breaks the fstab swap definitions ...

Re: Singapore repo update issue

For this region, Hong Kong mirrors are good. HOwever, the gpg key issue will arise whichever mirror you are on, because since the last time you updated, the gpg key expired for that repo.

Re: repositories

PPA repos are generally for Ubuntu-based systems, not Debian.

The packages are not always compatible.
