Re: Nvidia woes on new machine

Sorry. This is a result of last week's kernel update issue you may have seen posted here. In about an hour the missing linux-headers package should again be available on the *.mxrepo.com mirrors. Other mirrors will take longer to sync up. Or you could install a different kernel. Check the MX Package...

Re: Rage against the systemd 'machine'

I feel pretty certain that I have no idea what I'm talking about, and that this isn't any kind of option for MX... Shepherd does indeed look interesting. Takes some of the good ideas in systemd but still follows K.I.S.S. I think the antiX/MX live system could probably be made to work with it fairly...

Re: What exactly is the kernel/update issue?

That's not strange unless you updated the kernel after you set up persistence.

Re: What exactly is the kernel/update issue?

But oddly, it's not consistent. The old laptop I'm travelling with an & Stevo's rather new laptop updated without issues, and we're not sure why.
It seems to affect all (or nearly all) usb with persistence installs.

Re: Kernel Vunerable?

The debian 4.9 kernel has already been patched. So far the 4.19 has not been. I'm pretty sure that will happen soon & Stevo will build it for the repos.

At least it's not a "run random code" bug, it can just slow down or crash a system.

Re: Packages being worked on by the Repo Team

/usr/bin/realpath is still in coreutils - but it isn't Provided: by it. Since coreutils is always installed in a usable linux system there's no reason for listing a realpath dependency.

Re: Is PulseAudio good enough?

Since PulseAudio just routes audio around using the underlying Alsa system it's not responsible for lower quality audio. However its default settings are not the highest quality most sound cards can manage - it's set for basic CD quality (16bit signed integer @ 44.1kHz). PA uses those defaults so ol...

Re: Cannot compile Xash3D

The packages we build for the main repositories need to run on everybody's MX system.

Re: Cannot compile Xash3D

It's somewhat moot now, but as I suspected it was upgrading mesa from the Test repo which caused this. According to Aptitude to get the libsdl2-dev dependencies, these packages need to be installed with the Test repo enabled in order to match versions with already installed mesa related packages. li...
