Re: MX17-the Double Commander thread

I finally got it done. Its dependencies included newer versions of 3 large builds - one of which (lazarus) was giving me fits. But it turned out only libqt5pas needed to be built for our repos. Lazarus & FPC are in stretch-backports, but compiling the package with them does not inject any backports ...

MX-17 Repository - The Double Commander thread

Per request, Double Commander 0.8.3 (doublecmd-qt or doublecmd-gtk) is now available in the MX-17 test repository. Double Commander is a free cross platform open source file manager with two panels side by side. It is inspired by Total Commander. Its built in viewer will show hex, binary or text for...

Re: EOS Wallet Appimage won't run

I would report it upstream. I downloaded it and tried to run it. It gives the error Error: Cannot find module '/var/tmp/.mount_simpleaRRiEi/resources/electron.asar/browser/init.js' Some searching on that error shows it's likely due to a bug in the new version of Electron builder, not anything on you...

Re: MX-17 Repository - The Synaptic thread

Well, the patch hardcodes the path to use http://mxrepo.com since the mirrors don't get the changelogs.
Does

Code: Select all

apt-cache policy synaptic
show you have 0.84.2-1mx17+1 ?

MX-17 Repository - The Synaptic thread

I patched the current version of Synaptic to be able to retrieve changelogs (with the Get Changelog button that shows up when you select a package) from the MX main repository as well as the debian repo. There should be no other changes in function since my patch is localized to that routine, and it...

Re: Changelog for MX packages?

I'm working on getting changelogs retrievable for the main repo packages. There's an etc/apt/apt.conf.d config file fragment that needs to be added to make apt-get changelog work for MX. Synaptic has to be patched to make its changelog retrieval work because they ignore that configuration - I'll be ...

Re: MX repos, what should the antix URI be?

Sorry, I missed the nosystemd in the url. Remove that word & reload. AntiX doesn't use any systemd libraries. MX uses some but under the control of sysvinit for compatibility with things like Network Manager. So antiX has to rebuild some packages to prevent them from bringing in any systems libs. Th...

Re: [solved] Gis Weather not loading for some reason

I can't be certain, but it appears he used developer APIs to access the various weather services that were not intended for production use. When the traffic increased they cut off that access.

Re: Dave server MX 16

The antiX repos are mirrored on all the MX mirrors, so you can replace http://antix.daveserver.info with http://iso.mxrepo.com/antix until daveserver is back up.
