Re: We need a serious evlauation of the LMDE "rolling releas

Yes, it seems like my thread is dead, but I bet Clem read it already.
And even if the idea would not be adopted in any way, I'm pretty sure lmde team is already thinking about improving UP system.

Re: We need a serious evlauation of the LMDE "rolling releas

hmm...this makes perfect sense (unfortunately :mrgreen: ).
If debian testing repo is so "unreliable", I vote to leave update packs system as it is, with faster bugfixes if it is possible.

Re: We need a serious evlauation of the LMDE "rolling releas

I think ISO images are obsolete and should not be maintained at all. Small bootable network installer (just like the one opensuse has got) would be just fine. With selection which DE flavour you would like to download and install. If you have slow internet connection, or just dont want to wait, why ...

Re: --- "Keep or Install new" ---

You're welcome :)
I think you can save additional ~200-300MB or maybe even more, by using deborphan, it is more risky though.

run 'deborphan' to see how many packages can it remove (this is safe).
These are most probably not needed anymore.

Re: --- "Keep or Install new" ---

When you install new package version, old one is not removed if it has different package name (for example x264-116, libavcodec54 etc). so try 1) installing localepurge - it will automagically remove unneccessary localization files (also after every apt-get install). just make sure to leave english ...

Re: btrfs issue

I had no problems installing LMDE on btrfs. After installation just boot Live CD again, and edit fstab on hdd (set btrfs partitions error checking for example to 0 0). That said, 1) if you are running btrfs you should always be using newest possible kernel. 3.2 is quite ancient already - go for 3.6....

Important fixes idea

Hello :) I've noticed that LMDE has problem with lack of known bug fixes. In normal rolling distro, you have things broken quite often but hopefully fixed quickly too. Since LMDE is semi-rolling, it is more stable, but unfortunately also fixes can come rarely. I just wonder if you could differentiat...

Re: LMDE upgrade disaster!

But like always, I do a quick clonezilla of my /root partition. I consider that critical. Even if the upgrade goes smooth, you never know what show-stoppers you'll run into after the upgrade (such as a particular critical application you use is not compatible with some of the updates). You always w...

Re: LMDE upgrade disaster!

LMDE UP5 update should be about 1GB, not 500MB. Something is wrong.

Please remember that before update you should always make full system backup, so that you can rollback in case of failed update (and try again with different settings).

Re: my screen is too bright after UP5 (Mate 1.4)

But Caja background is absolutely independent of theme. As I said, you can actually set it to whatever color you want. In Caja preferences or menu, I don't remember exactly, there is color/background selection. Go there and just select something darker. As far as I remember you have to drag'n drop s...

Strange - I have 3 disks and 2 OSes and GRUB was installed.
It even detected Windows on second disk (although I didn't want it to do so - I can boot windows from bios boot menu anyway).

Re: Anyone use Nautilus instead of Thunar with Xfce?

Desktop functionality (xfdestop) of Xfce is a bit limited. Even on 4.10. It has very limited file management, because they would need to duplicate thunar functionality in xfdesktop. There are plans to integrate xfdestop into thumar - just like it is done in nautilus - but I am not sure if it'll be r...

Re: ATI 5450 and UP5

I don't know anything about sgfxi (I'm new here coming from suse), but fglrx seems to be working fine in UP5 except from 32-bit applications like wine. I just installed fglrx-driver and fglrx-control with all required dependencies, then "sudo aticonfig --initial" and then reboot. And it works. Durin...

Re: UP5 : fglrx + wine = fail

Yes, I guess this is a problem with 32-bit packages.
But since I don't have any 32-bit application other than wine, it's just a guess.

There is already new flgrx driver version in SID. I wonder if it is fixed already.

Re: ATI 5450 and UP5

Fglrx 12.6 from UP5 repository should work perfectly good with any HD5xxx card (or newer). Cinnamon works much better than on UP4 (fglrx 12.2). Compiz and Mate works just as good. Video acceleration works too (it didn't on UP4). I expect xfce to work well too, since it doesn't use any fancy accelera...
