      Sometimes things are just harder than one expects. I spent hours today, got Debian Buster configured nicely and then the desktop froze completely. I had installed Nvidia drivers ages ago to fix one issue but remembered my GTX560 Ti doesn't play nice with them. So I went back to siduction and found the networking was failing because of broken ufw. I didn't work out why it was broken but purging it enabled internet once more. Then back to Debian and purged Nvidia drivers and back to Nouveau. So now both siduction and Debian are working sweetly! Way too much time on this but it was worth it. Time for (late) dinner and TV.

      Maybe keep at least one. Debian Stable is kinda boring, ha-ha.

      This was a great little CPU. I first experienced one of these in a Dell laptop that Josh gave to me a few years ago. Man, would that thing just screamed running Slackware. The LCD took a poop on me, though. I could run it with ext. monitor, but I eventually scrapped it for parts. Sad.   Oh, it was a Dell Latitude:

      Wow, 12 years! Well, I'll stick with my approach -- running a rolling-release distro (Arch) and also running  Debian Stable. It still kinda surprises me how "stable" Arch can be, but after all this time I still feel better having Stable available, just in case.

      This system is 12 years old! well, some of it. Core2Duo E8500 but SSD and 2 HDs, graphics card, RAM, PS are all newer. Progress report - Thunderbird set up and working just by copying profile. Most visual tweaks done such as fonts and themes. Repos set up and working including one for Strawberry music player. A few more applications installed and Ktorrent working. Syncthing is probably the next and last major config left to do. This was a minimal netinstall so I have avoided having lots of applications which I never use like siduction had as that was a full install. It's quite refreshing to have it so lean, only 5.9GiB so far of which 841MiB is /home. I was really looking forward to Plasma 5.18 after seeing some of the nice new features and improvements in the works - https://kde.org/announcements/plasma-5.17.90.php But I guess it will be in Bullseye when that is released next year-ish. I won't be removing my siduction installs though. Need to ween myself off gradually. 😜
