Re: Kernel Vunerable?

The debian 4.9 kernel has already been patched. So far the 4.19 has not been. I'm pretty sure that will happen soon & Stevo will build it for the repos.

At least it's not a "run random code" bug, it can just slow down or crash a system.

Re: Packages being worked on by the Repo Team

/usr/bin/realpath is still in coreutils - but it isn't Provided: by it. Since coreutils is always installed in a usable linux system there's no reason for listing a realpath dependency.

Re: Is PulseAudio good enough?

Since PulseAudio just routes audio around using the underlying Alsa system it's not responsible for lower quality audio. However its default settings are not the highest quality most sound cards can manage - it's set for basic CD quality (16bit signed integer @ 44.1kHz). PA uses those defaults so ol...

Re: Cannot compile Xash3D

The packages we build for the main repositories need to run on everybody's MX system.

Re: Cannot compile Xash3D

It's somewhat moot now, but as I suspected it was upgrading mesa from the Test repo which caused this. According to Aptitude to get the libsdl2-dev dependencies, these packages need to be installed with the Test repo enabled in order to match versions with already installed mesa related packages. li...

Re: Cannot compile Xash3D

It wants to remove like half of my system, a total of 2.3 GB, some of which even core packages (mx-...) just to install these two: The following NEW packages will be installed: libgl1-glvnd-nvidia-glx{a} libglx0-glvnd-nvidia{a} I blame my old GTX 770 and its drivers. While the nvidia drivers may be...

Re: Cannot compile Xash3D

Did you, as I suggested above, use aptitude: sudo aptitude install libsdl2-dev:i386 so we can see which packages are blocking the install? I suspect some dependency of libsdl2-dev (and libsdl2-dev has a lot of them) needs to be installed from MX Test because a related library has been updated from t...

Re: K3b for MX15

You have no debian repos enabled. They haven't yet removed the jessie packages from your mirrors, so enabling the http://mirror.sov.uk.goscomb.net/debian jessie item in your list, and reloading will allow you to install k3b. Around the time Buster is released as Debian Stable (just a few weeks now) ...

Re: K3b for MX15

It's definitely in the debian jessie repos. tim@mx15:~ $ apt-cache policy k3b k3b: Installed: 2.0.2-8 Candidate: 2.0.2-8 Version table: *** 2.0.2-8 0 500 http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ jessie/main amd64 Packages 100 /var/lib/dpkg/status How about running inxi -r so we can see your repo list.
