Re: md5sum /var/lib/apt/lists/*** high system HDD usage spikes

The apt-notifier gets a hash (md5sum) of the /var/lib/apt/lists/* files every couple minutes and compares them to a previous hash to see if it needs to do some further checking if updates are available. I could probably have it compare hashes of directory listings instead of hashing individual files...

Re: New Mirror in Mainland China!

MX Repo Manager doesn't have the new mirror entries yet. If you want to enter them manually the main and non-free mx repo entries look like this: MX-17 & 17.1 deb https : //mirrors.sjtug.sjtu.edu.cn/mx-packages/mx/repo/ stretch main non-free MX-16 deb https : //mirrors.sjtug.sjtu.edu.cn/mx-packages/...

Nvidia tools with debian backport installig 384... What am I doing wrong ?
What MX version?

It looks like you might be running MX-15/16 instead of MX-17, 384.xx is the nvidia version in jessie-backports (~bpo8).

Re: Nvidia drivers >390

our nvidia-installer tool, if you use the the backports option that it will present, will install 390+ ( I forget the exact number ) Looking here: http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/pool/non-free/n/nvidia-graphics-drivers/ it looks like 390.87-2 is the current stretch-backports (~bpo9) version. I also...

Re: Gdebi is frozen

Are you sure the "scid_vs_pc-4.19.deb" file is in the same directory you're trying to install it from?
What's the output of

Code: Select all

ls -l scid*
Also the apt command might be complaining because normally .deb packagenames should end with something like:
"_amd64.deb", "_i386.deb" or "_all.deb".

Re: Gdebi is frozen

gdebi error, file not found: scid_vs_pc-4.19.deb
"file not found" is usually an error you get when you aren't in the same directory as the .deb package you're trying to install.

Re: How to completely remove XFCE

This looks like it will completely remove XFCE on my MX-16 install: dpkg -l | grep .*xfce.* | awk '{print $2}' | xargs sudo apt-get purge -V --auto-remove --force-yes -y --trivial-only And shown below is a simulated run of it. Remove the "--trivial-only" option at the end to do it for real. $ dpkg -...
