Re: The end of spinning rust...

My main machines use SSD for the OS, but I have collected a lot of data over the last 20+ years.
The 3TB drive in my daily driver is 2/3 full, so I'll still have spinning rust for a while...

Re: New inxi feature, /sys based usb data

No, I don't normally run with three USB nics. :p I just plugged in some of the inexpensive (<$15) ones I've picked up over time. None of them are actually connected, but they all work. $ pinxi -xxxzAN --usb Audio: Device-1: AMD SBx00 Azalia vendor: Gigabyte driver: snd_hda_intel v: kernel bus ID: 00...

Re: How to tell what packages are broken..

Your main problem seems to be that you have python3 from debian sid installed, but were trying to install glances from a different repo.
Did you update python and then disable the sid repo?

Re: Featherpad, (can't apply the selected font)

What version of MX & what version of Featherpad are you using?
We had this problem during MX-17 development and the issue was fixed upstream. I just tested again (MX-17, Featherpad 0.8 from the MX main repo) and font changes are working correctly here.

Re: MX Can't see video camera.

The usb adapter you mention is a form of video capture card . Some of them have good Linux drivers, some don't. Some need firmware. With the usb adapter plugged in, open a terminal and run: lsusb and paste the output back here so we can see exactly which adapter you have. Also let us know if there i...

Re: Trying to work the AUDIO problem...

When a piece of hardware is not working, and installing a similar piece of hardware then removing it causes the first piece to work the most likely cause is that inserting the new hardware has triggered either a kernel module or firmware to be loaded. {Your intel internal audio probably uses the snd...

Re: OpenGL problem when trying to launch DOTA 2

Well, your setup should support it, but how about running these commands and pasting the output back here to see if your setup shows that it supports it.
run:

Code: Select all

glxinfo | grep st3
and see if GL_EXT_texture_compression_s3tc shows up in the list. Also include:

Code: Select all

glxinfo | grep OpenGL
