Re: Routers and Linux

For my version 2 e2500 it wasn't too difficult, although the 30-30-30 resets involved are a pain, and for the features I wanted I had to then upgrade to a different build (you can't install it first). Looks like the version 3 that you would probably find now is a bit harder. https://wiki.dd-wrt.com/...

Re: Routers and Linux

I'm happy with my Linksys E2500. I haven't been happy in the past with their firmware so I installed dd-wrt on it before I put it into service.

Re: Strange RAM / Conky / CPU Hardware Output

According to that screen shot, Vivaldi is using nearly all that ram. Either it, or a plugin/extension installed in Vivaldi has a memory leak.
If closing Vivaldi doesn't release the memory, open a terminal and run

Code: Select all

killall vivaldi-bin

Re: POLL : What is your favo(u)rite search engine

While a short test showed that Quant's results were pretty good, it has (for me) one fatal flaw. When you install it in Firefox, it adds an extension that locks Qwant in as your homepage. Remove the extension, and it removes Qwant from your search engine list. That's hijacking behaviour, whether or ...

Re: Best of both Worlds? ORAGE & WHAT TIME IS IT

This is probably a request best sent upstream. The developers of Orage & What Time is it know their code and how to tweak it. Any of us would be starting from scratch, having to puzzle out code another has written. Occasionally we can do that to squash a bug that keeps a program from building on MX ...

Re: Systemd

Well, not entirely systemd free, we use some of the library functions, but we have no plans to let systemd reside at PID1 if we can keep making things work in a user friendly manner without doing so.

Our sister distro antiX is completely systemd free.

Re: Cautionary tale: Snapshot Functionality

I realize most people will not learn debian packaging, but if you must compile from source, use checkinstall instead of make install . It will put the results in a bare-bones debian package that you can install - and more importantly remove if necessary. I used it extensively when I started compilin...

Re: Cautionary tale: Snapshot Functionality

More likely building & installing from source.
I suspect you will find those EXPORT lines in your ~/.bashrc and you can edit them out.

Re: Issues setting up systemd

But if you refer back to your picture, you will see the system trying to open disk with a uuid different from all the above. It seems to be looking at a symlink that begins with x2duuid in /dev/disk/by-uuid ls -al /dev/disk/by-uuid/ will show what disk that is supposed to point to. If there is nothi...

Re: Issues setting up systemd

Your image shows the system trying to open a disk with the uuid x2d1b45face4f6f. It could be a device listed in your /etc/fstab that isn't present, a swap partition that was never formatted as swap, a resume= line in grub that doesn't point to a valid device, or something similar. I would start by c...
