The kernel seems to be working fine.
Temps are similar to the 3.16-*-bpo.

Midori is still working fine on the new Liquorix.
Damentz has been building them since sidux;
sometimes they work for me, sometimes they don't.
Wonder if there is a test suite to help decide?

Thought I had a problem, but it was my ISP. :)

...and then it died again for no apparent reason.
Something destabilizes it; or it is just unstable.
The new kernel seems to have lost its charm.
A real shame because it is quick and light on the netbook.

Opening a few tabs seems to be part of the problem,
but it is hard to pin down. When it works, it's great. :)
I'll keep trying.

Is this the Liquorix kernel from our repo or Damentz's? I do have Midori 0.5.10 built but not tested yet.

Any terminal messages when Midori crashes?

The Wheezy gtk webkit package that it uses as the engine is getting rather old, though. It has trouble loading anything on mlb.com, for example. Maybe a backport of that would be possible, though it's a heavy compile.

4.1-5.dmz.2-liquorix-686-pae from mx repos.

That's a good idea, I'll run it from a console to see what messages it sends.

That was short and sweet:

Code: Select all

richard@mx142:~
$ midori
Segmentation fault
richard@mx142:~
$ midori
Segmentation fault
richard@mx142:~
$ 
Seemed to make it more unstable?
Execute, open a couple of tabs and it seg-faulted. :frown:

Looks like Debian had some idea of what was going on.

Qupzilla 1.8.6 is built against Qt 5's webkit engine, which is more up-to-date, and is still lightweight.

Yes, I'll try that for a while.
Looks like Midori needs to bake a bit more.
Thanks for your efforts.

I'v just installed Midori 5.11 from jessie-backports 10 minutes ago on my wattOS R8 (based on Wheezy). No problems so far.
FYI, I also installed the newest LXDE panel there and it works as well.
MX-14 on a Via Eden 1GHz CPU thin client, 3GB RAM, Via VX800 chipset, Via Chrome9 HC GPU, 32GB M.2 SSD;
btrfs with @ and @home subvolumes for MX-14;
added @antiX and @antiXhome subvolumes and copied antix 13.1 base into them, adjusting Grub from MX-14.

I just wanted to test the Midori version from the MX Test Repo (0.5.11), but I was pretty shocked to see that it was bundled with zeitgeist.

AFAIK, zeitgeist is by no means necessary for running Midori (http://www.twotoasts.de/index.php/2015/ ... -or-tails/), and I couldn't think of any practical use of zeitgeist when it comes to Midori in MX-16, either. Thus I would propose providing a non-zeitgeist version for testing in the MX Test Repo.

I would happily test it and give feedback.


Greetings, Joe

does the zeitgeist service actually get pulled in, or just libzeitgeist.

FYI: mx "test" repo is not the same thing as debian testing repo.
