Re: Problems with big December package update

Wherever it came from it was forced on us. Nothing was forced on you, there's a reason we don't ship with automatic updates enabled by default, you probably set it up for automatic updates -- in my opinion it doesn't mean "forced on you" when you say "give me all automatically". If you did the upda...

Apparently Microsoft likes Chromium enough that they're throwing in the towel and switching their default Edge browser to a Chromium base.
That's another reason not to use it.
I heard Microsoft employees like to eat, they also breath air...

Re: Firefox 64.0 is a slugg. [solved]

Firefox is way way slower on any PC that I have ever ran. If you have slow wifi especially. I use chrome. It works better than any other that the only reason. If Firefox worked as well I wouldn't have any problem using it but it sucks for me so I stick with tried and true chrome. Just plain and sim...

Re: youtube-dl package showing false update

it uses ftp://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/dists/ I guess at some point we could try to use the localized repo, there are pluses and minuses (the big minus for the change would that that somebody needs to code it :p ) with all our mirrors out there , fetching all from one repo only, conflicting with ap...

Re: Firefox 64.0 is a slugg. [solved]

Try to move ~/.mozilla and ~/.cache/mozilla out of the way, this way the program would start with a clean profile. Another way to do that is to create a new profile, close Forefix and start it again with firefox --ProfileManager Select Create new profile and go to town... EDIT: If ESR works stick wi...

Re: youtube-dl package showing false update

I think I fixed MX Package Installer. I re-wrote the VersionNumber class, the code is a bit hairy so I would like this tested before we push it to main. The deb is in our github repo 64 bit here: https://github.com/MX-Linux/mx-packageinstaller/raw/master/mx-packageinstaller_18.12.1_amd64.deb 32 bit ...

Re: youtube-dl package showing false update

Let's not change sources for now. I need to fix VersionNumber class in MX Package Installer it considers "~mx17+1" in 2018.11.07-1~mx17+1 as regular characters and it gives the result that 2018.11.07-1~mx17+1 > 2018.11.07-1 while apt-get considers ~ to subtract from version. Question 1: what's the n...
