Re: AMD MESA driver avail. for MX Linux?

I don't think there's a problem with MESA, I think inxi (for whatever reason) just added a line break between between the 'OpenGL:' part and the 'renderer:' part of it's report. Inxi reports this for the amdgpu driver on my MX-16 install Graphics: Device-1: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD/ATI] Kabini [R...

Re: MX updater usage

...Or to ask another way; Is MX Updater an all or nothing updater? Sorry for the slow response, I've been away from the forum for the last two weeks or so. MX Updater is an all or nothing updater. There are no plans to add the ability to pick and choose individual packages from the list of availabl...

Re: Abhängigkeit nicht erfüllbar: libc6 (>=2.27)

You might try the 16.04 .deb package (js8call_1.1.0_16.04_amd64.deb) instead of the 18.04 one, it calls for libc6 (>=2.19).

Re: Had an update problem this morning

...Now all I need to know, is whether this was something I caused or not? I would say you weren't the cause of the problem(s), especially the problem with the python3.4 update. And the problem with the jessie-updates repo has been around for a while, it wasn't something you did, we (MX) haven't rea...

Re: Update-Grub

Is the 4.15.14 kernel still installed?

Code: Select all

apt-cache policy linux-image-4.15.14-antix.1-amd64-smp
If it is remove it and the grub entry should go away.

Re: Had an update problem this morning

I used synaptic, unchecked the debian one and the samsung drivers one and now at least there seems not to be an error in synaptic as far as repos are concerned. Now 5 new updates have just popped up. Is it safe to make them or should I fix the rest first? Are the updates python3.4 related updates? ...

Re: Had an update problem this morning

@Ancient_Hermit, you didn't say what version MX you're using, but I ran in to the same problem today on my MX-16.x install. Here's a log of it: Log started: 2019-06-25 08:10:45 (Reading database ... 305986 files and directories currently installed.) Preparing to unpack .../python3.4_3.4.2-1+deb8u3_a...

Re: How to exclude specific packages from upgrading?

The simplest method is to lock the package in Synaptic. Note that aptitude will not respect this lock if you happen to use that. Aptitude (and apt / apt-get) will respect the packages locked (pinned) in Synaptic if you add a symlink between /var/lib/synaptic/preferences & /etc/apt/preferences.d. su...

Yes, I think something like that might work (maybe also include aptitude and Synaptic), and you'd still be able to use apt-get/apt if you really wanted to.
