Okay, I'm reverting back to M11 after my ill fated attempt to move to SolydK.

However, I'm going to upgrade to both the latest and greatest Firefox and Thunderbird. I've been running Warrens original Fx 4.0 that came with M11.

Where's the new one located? Or what's it named? I have the main CR and test CR enabled but am not seeing the new Firefox.

Seems like there's several duplicates in that list; I thought I was seeing double for a second.

You should be seeing a Firefox 38.0.X there--what does

Code: Select all

apt-cache policy firefox


show?

And what was wrong with Soldyxk?

The package is just named "firefox". The new firefox (version 38.0.6~mozillabinaries-1mcr110+1) is in this repo:

Several things. It's a long story. I'll post about the whole deal soon.

Sorry 'bout that. Mouse is getting funky. Looks like it double pasted.
And what was wrong with Soldyxk?

An accumulation of things. Deal breaker was samba not sharing the attached printer or sharing files. Fought it for three days with posts all over Usenet, the SolydXK forum, and here under General Chat. The Usenetters gave me several things to look at or try that all made sense, but nobody was interested in following through. I got a collective shrug on the Solyd forum. The only place I got what appeared to be any sort of real interest or effort was here. Props to DO. Community matters.

The one thing I did accomplish over the last two weeks with SolydK was to beat Firefox and Thunderbird into submission. That's where I live in my computer about 95% of the time, and I have some very strong ideas about how I want things to look, feel, and work. I am loathe to upgrade, since too often I find the newer versions would break things I depend on. It took a lot of doing, but I've now got Fx 38 and TB 31 looking and behaving to my satisfaction, nearly identical to the old Fx v4 and TB v2.0.0.24 I've been using for the last four or five years. I'm now in M11 with the updated versions, and transferred my hard won profiles from the SolydK install.

The SolydK install was done on a new SSD I snagged for cheap. This M11 is still on HDD. I'm hoping to move the whole M11 install to the SSD and hold out until such time MX-15 is released, and then look at my options. I'll be doing a fresh post about how I plan to to accomplish that move soon. I think I've got it mapped out and all the gotchyas covered, but want to throw it out here and make sure there's not something I've overlooked.

I've still got an installation of SolydK-BE. However I've not booted into it in months. I've been very happy with MX-14.3 updated to .4 but running the old kernel. KDE runs as smooth as butter. It feels a lot like Mepis 11 did.

At least MX-15 and antiX 15 are not far off.
Yes, even I am dishonest. Not in many ways, but in some. Forty-one, I think it is.

What I want is MEPIS 15. :-)

I knew I had to update my Fx and TB. It was just getting really difficult to use them anymore. But I was also dreading it -- I'd wrestled with them before on installs I'd done for others, and wasn't looking forward to going through what I knew was going to be a fight to get them to MY satisfaction for everyday use. Then Jesse when stable. Then I caught an SSD for cheap. I figured I might as well just go whole hog. I wanted a Jessie base, 64-bit, and KDE baked in. SolydK should have filled the bill. Turned out to not be what I'd hoped. I guess I've been spoiled.

I really do like MX. I have a load of v14.4 with KDE running on a small SSD as the default on my laptop. But I was under the impression (rightly or wrongly) that MX-15 was still a long ways off, and didn't think 64-bit was in the offing. If I can get this load of M11 (now with the updated Fx and TB, configured to my satisfaction) moved over wholesale to the SSD, I'll be satisfied for the time being.
