    • ------------------------------------------------------------------------ The Debian Project https://www.debian.org/ Updated Debian 10: 10.2 released press@debian.org November 16th, 2019 https://www.debian.org/News/2019/20191116 ------------------------------------------------------------------------ The Debian project is pleased to announce the second update of its stable distribution Debian 10 (codename "buster"). This point release mainly adds corrections for security issues, along with a few adjustments for serious problems. Security advisories have already been published separately and are referenced where available. Please note that the point release does not constitute a new version of Debian 10 but only updates some of the packages included. There is no need to throw away old "buster" media. After installation, packages can be upgraded to the current versions using an up-to-date Debian mirror. Those who frequently install updates from security.debian.org won't have to update many packages, and most such updates are included in the point release. New installation images will be available soon at the regular locations. Upgrading an existing installation to this revision can be achieved by pointing the package management system at one of Debian's many HTTP mirrors. A comprehensive list of mirrors is available at: https://www.debian.org/mirror/list Miscellaneous Bugfixes ---------------------- This stable update adds a few important corrections to the following packages: +---------------------------+-----------------------------------------+ | Package | Reason | +---------------------------+-----------------------------------------+ | aegisub [1] | Fix crash when selecting a language | | | from the bottom of the "Spell checker | | | language" list;

    • Changing Debian's default setting to install recommends to false is one of the dumbest things in MX IMHO. It causes regular problems with users missing functionality. In Debian default is true IIRC. I guess it may be to reduce space used for a live usb install but I'd rather have full functionality of my installed applications personally. I would change it to true if I were you. Create a file in /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/ call it something like 80myconf.conf and put this in it:   // apt defaults for raymac APT::Get::AutomaticRemove "0"; APT::Get::HideAutoRemove "0"; APT::Install-Recommends "1"; APT::Install-Suggests "0"; Here's a brilliant explanation on Stackexchange - https://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/77053/apt-installing-more-packages-than-specified-as-dependencies/77076#77076 And explanation of Debian package relationships  - https://www.debian.org/doc/debian-policy/ch-relationships.html
    • When I reinstalled Chromium I did it via the Terminal using apt. Chromium-sandbox was one of the recommended packages so I installed it. After that Chromium works fine. Posting from it now.
    • Don't fear the PulseAudio. I hated it at first and purged it whenever I could, but it's way better now and I appreciate what it does. Makes a few things much easier actually.
    • *sigh*   Just lazy. Don't want to spend an entire day sitting at this desk and gnashing teeth. 🥴
