Re: Syntax error puzzling me

I think you left a blank between the redirection and ${Trash} you should write 2>>${Trash}

However I don't see the point of redirecting the stderr, there's no stderr for a comparison as far as I know, you should probably just use:

Code: Select all

 if [ 0 -lt ${size} ] ; then

Re: newer wpa_supplicant

Thanks the package worked but it didn't fix the problem for me, it's probably another issue.

Most likely the Final Version if was are satisfied with the changes and if we don't need extra testing.

newer wpa_supplicant

I'm trying to log in to a 802.1x network using Network Manager in MX17 it fails and the only thing that I found that looks relevant is this bug report
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1465138

It looks like they patched wpa_supplicant, is it possible to get a newer version in Test repo?

Re: MX-17 Release Candidate 1 - Feedback

I haven't needed to test this, but according to a DreamLinux thread: "If zsync is stopped for any reason it can be restarted with the same command-line and will simply reuse any sections already downloaded and keep going until the ISO is complete and checks out with the md5sum." I can con...

Re: MX-17 Release Candidate 1 - Feedback

Try zsync it can use the older file as base and download only the changes, for example to download the 64bit one: zsync -i INPUTFILE http://iso.mxrepo.com/Testing/MX-17/MX-17.RC1_x64.iso.zsync where INPUTFILE can be the last Beta you have, if you have beta3 you can do: zsync -i MX-17.b3_x64.iso http...

Re: MX-17 Release Candidate 1 - Feedback

Does it only appear on a non-laptop? I guess so, I see it in KVN/Qemu and on a test desktop, not on the laptop or VirtualBox. To be honest, I don't have much objection to it and don't really feel as if it's jarringly incongruous. It's a bit out of place next to the other gray icons in system tray, ...

Re: MX-17 Release Candidate 1 - Feedback

Running Live on my production system in sig, Power Manager is that yellow icon. I see the same icon when I run the ISO in KVM, but on my laptop it doesn't show up (I created the USB with live-usb-maker if that makes a difference). So there's some variation somewhere. Just tested, I don't see the ic...

Re: MX-17 Release Candidate 1 - Feedback

Will this release update to final when the time comes or will a fresh install be required?

If this is not a FAQ I don't know what is... we should probably post the response in the announcement too.

RCs will update to Final (at least that what we did in the past).
