Re: MX-17.1: Could not install "libx11-dev" due to upgraded "libxcb1"

Code: Select all

Re: Packages being worked on by the Repo Team

Working on Julia which is requiring a number of backports. utf8procs failed on our texlive, and julia requires a piece of texlive not in stretch, so I'm working on the tex suite at the moment.

Re: Dell XPS 15 9560: Kernel Panic after installing Nvidia drivers

Hybrid graphics machines like yours can be tricky, but I haven't seen this particular symptom before. One thing you could try is to use sgfxi to install a newer nvidia driver than is in the repositories. There are directions in the Wiki.

It was a temporary repo during development of MX-18 to debug issues with the mesa/libegl/nvidia/xorg upgrades. It is no longer available as all the packages there were moved to...
