Re: MX(LX)Qt ??

...added the mx repo and installed MX updater but it doesn't seem to be working on its own, as in if I leave it alone for a long time, it doesn't seem to run an update check. So the empty box icon never turns green on its own. I've changed mirrors a few times with no success. If I do an apt update ...

Re: woogaloo (beta): GUI for performing hodgepodge system tasks

We could add a warning to the entry about that, if there's enough room, or have it pop up a secondary dialog like some of the others. (says the guy who doesn't know how to implement that) I was thinking maybe a "keep dpkg logs" checkbox or something. I haven't looked at how hard it would ...

Re: woogaloo (beta): GUI for performing hodgepodge system tasks

Clearing the system logs does not seem to affect MX Updater's history feature. It does affect it if there's more than a month's worth of logs. It (woogaloo) uses the following command to find candidates for removal: find /var/log -type f \( -iname \*.gz -o -iname \*.0 -o -iname \*.1 \) 2>/dev/null ...

Re: woogaloo (beta): GUI for performing hodgepodge system tasks

A note about cleaning the logs. MX Updater (apt-notifier) greps the /var/log/dpkg.log* logs to show 'History' of upgrades, installs, removals, etc. If you remove ("clean") the /var/log/dpkg.log* log files you end up losing most of the package management history with the exception of the mo...

Re: {SOLVED}: Boot and install MX17 manually

To be sure let inxi show us the PAE-capability of the CPU ~ $ inxi -Cx CPU: Single core Intel Celeron CPU (-UP-) cache 128 KB flags (sse sse2) bmips 5382.31 clocked at 2691.157 MHz Probably doesn't matter now, but inxi -f will show all the flags, the -Cx option only shows some of them

It was Mint 12 though. I don't know what the minimum requirements were for it. (btw what version is Mint up to now?)

Re: Boot and install MX17 manually

You say the Compaq desktop is a 386, by that I assume you mean it's a 32-bit machine. If it really is a i386 class cpu, it won't run on MX-17. Do you know what cpu it uses? Also we discussed this in the Dev Team forum and came to the conclusion that it probably needs to be a i686 class cpu, even tho...

Re: New name for the mx-installer

Adrian wrote:ww-installer (Warren Woodford's installer, since he wrote it first time).

That was a name I sort of had in mind.

And since some of the names now being proposed don't even include the word "installer", maybe call it "warren" or "woodford".

Re: qt4 stuff as autoremovable, is this right?

If any other packages/apps still need the qt4 stuff, they should have them listed in their control files as dependencies and that should keep them from being classified as "autoremovable".
