Re: Updated Version of fldigi & flrig please?

fldigi 4.0.17 & flrig 1.3.39 are now available for MX-17 in the test repo. I don't have any suitable equipment to test these with, so please leave feedback when you try them.
fldig needs more work to backport for MX-16, and I'm travelling at the moment, but I'll see if I can get it.

Re: Question: MX package requests vs. other distros

I started building packages back in the Mepis 7 days to safely install programs I wanted myself. Then I started sharing them on the MepisLovers Forum. Then, since some of them were fairly popular, I started an unofficial repository to more easily share them. Others started building packages & submit...

Re: REQUEST: QuiteRSS

For now, use the Test repository to update quiterss. When we have enough reports that the new version is working properly the package will be moved into the main repository. Since the package was just built we have no feedback yet.

Re: REQUEST: QuiteRSS

Given it's the last in the series before quiterss2 (unless a security patch is needed) it makes sense to update to 0.18.11 It will be up in the testing repository shortly. I don't use rss feeds myself, so please leave feedback when you try it. I know it installs & runs but am otherwise unqualified t...

Re: [SOLVED] Downgrade/upgrade Thunar

Thunar 1.6.15 also fixes a hanging problem I've had copying folders over from a samba share. Ordinarily I would move this to main since it fixes two bugs - but since it's an integral part of the desktop I would appreciate a little more testing first to make sure there are no reversions or other prob...

Re: MS Buying Github

Personally, I don't have a problem taking advantage of MS hosting my github account for free. It's git after all. I've got backups and if they do something to piss me off it's trivial to put it elsewhere. Do I trust them very far? Of course not! But there's certainly no urgent need to do anything ri...

Re: Converting tar.gz to deb files

Nuh-uh! Wasn't me. Debian Buzz hit EOL over 20 years ago - before I ever even tried linux.

Re: Converting tar.gz to deb files

That capability of alien is designed to convert Slackware .tgz files to deb or rpm files. Slackware tgzs are precompiled binary packages in a standard directory format. Most tar.gz files are not this sort, but rather are source code that needs to be compiled. Alien is useless for those. Even in the ...
