  3. siduction is proud to announce a new release dubbed "Farewell" in honour of recently departed developer Axel. Currently available with several DEs but the main one is KDE Plasma 5.20.5 . A special build is also available with 5.22 from Norbert Preining's repo. Looks like it has some nice innovations like doas instead of sudo, iwd for wifi, and kio-fuse for mounting remote directories.

  5. Last night I was feeling restless so killed some time by installing Neptune OS on my more beefy computer. Neptune is based on Debian Stretch but has rebuilt KDE Plasma 5.12 to be compatible. Default Stretch has Plasma 5.8 and the improvements by 5.12 are significant. Installation was a piece of cake. Boot from USB key and follow instructions. GRUB was set up correctly on UEFI during installation. Adding Nvidia driver from stretch-backports was simple, system has 4K monitor and GTX970 so works better with it. The only slightly tricky bit was getting sound to work. Pavucontrol showed the correc

  9. August 16 1993, Ian Murdock announces Debian on comp.os.linux.development. What a long strange trip it's been. Well, probably only 10 years for me. https://bits.debian.org/2018/08/debian-is-25.html

    Build your own Laptop

    http://www.zdnet.com/article/diy-linux-laptop-build-your-own-for-240-with-fully-open-source-olimex-teres-i/ At the main site, https://www.olimex.com/Products/DIY-Laptop/ Now that is what I think is a great idea. You can configure the pc to suit yourself. You can replace every bit if they fail. You can upgrade parts of the pc to suit your changing needs. It will be interesting to see what different parts they will offer when they get underway and how much they will cost.

  11. Is anyone using auto upgrades or updates with Debian? I would like my Debian 9 stable to automatically to download and install security updates or at least notify me that update are available like mint does. If you are doing this, What software (Cron, Apt, Auto-Upgrade, are you using? I like to automate things as much as possible which was easy to do in Mint. Tia Mel

    MX-16 released!

    My current daily OS has just released their latest version, MX-16. Go to https://mxlinux.org/products and make sure to watch the video to learn of all the marvellous features including some new and innovative MX tools. They also claim it's the best Live USB distro available now, which I can't dispute.

  14. LibreElec is the new fork of OpenELEC, the popular media centre distro Based on Debian stable. Read an amusing post about the split here - Let’s rock this gig!
  15. I'll post this in Debian updates but here too as it may have wider interest. Gotta love a stable distro with 5 years support!
  16. Updated Debian 7: 7.10 released https://www.debian.org/News/2016/2016040202 Updated Debian 8: 8.4 released https://www.debian.org/News/2016/20160402
  17. It's been a long time in the making and now finally released. Based on Debian Testing with Xfce and oodles of great programs for producing audio and video including the excellent KX Studio repositories and core apps such as Cadence and Catia. They have also produced a comprehensive 84 page manual. I'll be trying it very soon. http://www.bandshed.net/2016/03/23/avl2016/

    gcc5 transition

    GCC5 is the recently released new version of the Linux compiler. A vast number of packages need to be rebuilt to be compatible. This must be the biggest transition I have seen in my time of using Linux. Debian Sid and siduction users are having to hold off on upgrades presently, and probably for months. How are other rolling-release distros handling this? [ACHTUNG! URGENT!] GCC 5 TRANSITION, DO NOT DIST-UPGRADE or keep the pieces https://release.debian.org/transitions/html/libstdc++6.html
  19. http://news.siductio...ction-2014-1-3/ I'm looking forward to trying the new LXQt version, and maybe try btrfs. Homerun, newly included in KDE, looks interesting too. My main siduction install will not be replaced as it still works well. Rolling release rocks!

    Afgan penguins !!

    Rebuilding tech in Afghanistan with open source They use this software, https://www.univention.com/ Which to a layman like me seems pretty neat and decently priced. As I have never used it I can not say how it performs personally. I like this explanation they give about their interaction with Debian. ZiiK one of the organisations helping out the Afgans in a big way are German and have been helping and promoting open source to underdeveloped countries since 2000.
  21. OK, as you all know, I run pure Debian Wheezy. I got sick and tired of having the audio be flaky so I did the following to get rid of Pulse Audio: in a true TTY command line as root: apt-get update apt-get remove pulse audio apt-get alsa base apt-get autoremove reboot apt-get upgrade logged out of root and also in command line: alsamixer and set my settings. Lots more available control now on the Mixer in the system tray area! Yea!!!! And no more stupid Pulse Audio tricks!!
  22. I just installed the latest Debian Mint amd 64 version which is rolling distribution. I have not had to much luck in the past with rolling disto's. They seem to break to easy when updating or upgrading. I have had problems in the past with Linux Mint DE I have to say this one went pretty smooth although on first boot I got a blank screen after hard drive install. Thanks to Sunrat I knew what to do. I did a CTRL + ALT + F1 Logged in as user did a SU and then a apt-get update then apt-get install "firmware-linux-nonfree" I then did a ALT + F7 and startx logged out as su rebooted and logged in as
  23. Are there any non-linux kernels they currently support and if so, what does this mean for them? systemd is specifically for use with many features of the linux kernel and the big developers have no interest in trying to make it a universal tool. The project page lists a huge range of hardware and projects that Debian runs on. The one that jumps out at me from the list is kFreeBSD. Anyone know if it runs on a linux kernel?
  24. I installed Debian 7.3 to night, the gnome version. I was pleasantly surprised at how it has improved from earlier versions. it was fast and the install went without a hitch. it did go into fallback mode when I booted up after the install. Thanks to sunrat I knew what to do and solved the problem with I like it but like siduction better. I will use both. Mel

    Kwheezy 1.2

    http://desktoplinuxreviews.com/debian-reviews/kwheezy-1-2/ Download, http://www.kwheezy.com/en/downloads/ Might be a gentle way for a beginner to start with Debian. Quite a nice article though a bit dated. The os it seems has matured a tad. Shame the guy uses the dreaded "N" word. He must be one of The Knights of Ni.
