Re: Monthly snapshot announcement

You cannot replace it it's a different ISO with different name and md5 sum. Don't see a solution here, people need to choose to download the snapshot -- I mean the best thing probably would be to update a previous ISO using zsync. I had this zsync-ing from the September snapshot, it downloaded abou...

Re: AMD Radeon HD 6670/7670 (NOT SOLVED)

...However during startup there are errors shown modprob error could not insert nvidia current. How do I cure this? Sounds like the nvidia driver (and related packages), from the system that the snapshot was made on, is still installed. If it's working okay otherwise the modprobe errors you see dur...

Re: AMD Radeon HD 6670/7670 (NOT SOLVED)

Re: Removed the nomodeset but do not understand what the kernel parameter is. The radeon driver uses kernel modesetting (kms) and won't work properly if the nomodeset parameter is used. Like I posted before, removing the nomodeset parameter and also removing(deleting) the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file sho...

Re: Package request: browser-plugin-freshplayer-pepperflash

The adobe-flashplugin package in the MX repos installs both the NPAPI style flash plugin (libflashplayer.so) and the pepperflash plugin (libpepflashplayer.so). $ dpkg -S *flashplayer.so adobe-flashplugin: /usr/lib/adobe-flashplugin/libpepflashplayer.so adobe-flashplugin: /usr/lib/adobe-flashplugin/l...

Re: Syncing a fitbit

On my MX-16.x install I use the 1.0dev version of galileo from the https://bitbucket.org/benallard/galileo page/link you posted to sync my Charge 2 FitBit device. I've been using it since June or so of last year. One of our MX packagers, mmikeinsantarosa, has also built some galileo related packages...

Re: AMD Radeon HD 6670/7670

Remove the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file, use Grub Customizer to remove the nomodeset kernel parameter and generate a new grub.cfg.
After you do a reboot it should be using the radeon driver.

Re: AMD Radeon HD 6670/7670

...Then there might be some kernel boot command to get the system to use the amdgpu driver ... I think the HD 6670/7670 is a older GPU and should use the radeon driver, not the amdgpu driver. So the question is why is it using the vesa driver? Maybe Fornhamfred could post the output of the command ...

Re: Intel GMA X3100 driver

It should have shown something for the `cat /proc/cmdline` command, but I mainly wanted to see that because I wanted see whether you were using the nomodeset option or not, and you aren't, it would force it to use the vesa driver. The inxi report you posted shows that it's using the modesetting driv...

I don't know if that has anything to do with Warren or not. I did notice this a day or two ago, both mepis.org and mepis.com now show the following: This domain has expired. If you owned this domain, contact your domain registration service provider for further assistance. If you need help identifyi...

...It looks like it is using the vesa driver but from reading the forum I should be using modesetting.
How do I do that?
I don't know if I can be much help to you, but it might help others if you posted the output of

Code: Select all

inxi -Fxxx

And

Code: Select all

cat /proc/cmdline

Use code tags.
