Men and women. Girls and boys. Do not be to sensitive. And what about this user (headstick). He helped many people. It is therefore a very valuable forum member. In addition, in his speeches, there is a great deal of humor.

Hello. As root, open file


and add contrib and non-free (if you want) to it.  It should look like this

deb ascii main non-free contrib
# deb-src ascii main non-free contrib

deb ascii-security main non-free contrib
# deb-src ascii-security main non-free contrib

deb ascii-updates main non-free contrib
# deb-src ascii-updates main non-free contrib

If you had a chance to peek at the NSA archives, I'm sure you'll find a lot of interesting things.

Very nice decision!

I don't play games at all. It's a pointless waste of time.

Of course!

You should be more cautious with unclear content scripts. Such "helpers" can irreparably damage the system.

Hello. Security updates for this  vulnerability already in the mirrors. Just run

apt update


apt upgrade

This affects only wireless network connections from my experience. Wired isn't affected.

Hello. I am on wired connection.  I do not have wireless connection. It is a desktop.

#19 Re: Desktop and Multimedia » What are the necessary packages for audio to work correctly? » 2018-09-04 16:35:36

No need any pulse audio. Just install





If you have multiple sound cards, just create


  file with content

pcm.!default {
    type hw
    card Headset

ctl.!default {
    type hw
    card Headset

Where "Headset" is my default sound card. And here you go. Now you have a working sound. Good luck.

I guess it will work in jessie or ascii. The devuan bug report is on ascii, and I tested it on ascii (with cryptsetup 1.7). The debian bug report is from 2013 and is for cryptsetup 1.6. You might need to apply it manually on jessie if the files aren't exactly the same in jessie and ascii.

I understood. Thanks for the reply.

#21 Re: Desktop and Multimedia » Nvidia error at boot » 2018-08-28 15:42:50

As one of the possible solutions I can offer

apt-get install --reinstall nvidia-kernel-dkms

I do not know if this can help.

Hello. This patch for 1.0.0 Jessie only or will be for  both versions (1.0.0 Jessie and 2.0.0 ASCII)?

Until this time it is impossible to connect  to the sites. Please forgiv me for the harsh words, but if developers are not able to ensure the functioning of a normal website, what will be final product (Astian OS)?  Of course, this is  rhetoric question....

Recently tried Linux Mint Debian Edition and, while nice, it seemed a little slow.    Also by default, they try to shove a system restore program on you.  Hoping that someone is working on a Linux Mint Devuan Edition.

By no means. They dropped their spam on their ISO, so that the devil himself would break through the attempt to pull that manure.
