#1 Re: Installation » two questions, new to Devuan » 2020-10-29 18:04:09

Hi again

My printer is just as old (1997). I will just mention that printer drivers has nothing to do with 32 vs 64 bit. Most printers that worked in the old days will continue to do so. I have not heard about removed drivers if supported by CUPS. And when dealing with conservative distributions as debian (and Devuan) I am sure it will be that way all most forever

Hi

Read the release notes. Especially about enabling pulseaudio for sound.

This distribution is not based on Ubuntu, but debian. As long debian is making a 32bit version (and they will do this with at least the next release) Devuan will have x86-32 bit fully supported..

Hi

You are most welcome. You are absolutely not the only one. This question pops up at least once per week.

#5 Re: Installation » install guide doesnt match install screen » 2020-10-28 06:40:55

Hi

As far as I remember, you need to use the advanced install mode to get this. If you want grub to boot your machine directly it will in my experience always choose the right drive, especially if you are using uefi and secure boot (secure boot do not need to be enabled) but you then need a  esp partition.

#6 Re: Hardware & System Configuration » Freeze at startup probably caused by nvidia driver » 2020-10-24 06:55:41

Hi

With Nvidia I have for several years just used the open nouveau drivers. And have had just a few problems. Off course with your card it requires a backported kernel. In the last year development have been more active than before.

#7 Re: Devuan » Archiving Devuan repositories » 2020-10-23 20:53:09

Hi

Yes, they are keeping a central quite complete archive. I am currently not following Debian as close as idid when I used it :-) , but what I have heard was cleaning up of all the repository and download mirrors, so they did not have these old unsupported releases laying around.

#8 Re: Devuan » Archiving Devuan repositories » 2020-10-22 19:04:29

Hi

All old debian releases are here http://archive.debian.org/debian/dists/ and will probably be there for a long time to come

Hi

Have you looked at the link vlax has in his post above yours. To solve your problem you must be more specific about what you have done, your hardware and goal.

#11 Re: Installation » netinstall or dvd images » 2020-10-02 18:26:42

Hi

The problem 20 years from now, will be to find something that play a DVD or Bluray. Remember tapedrives (still used when reliability is important) and Floppys. Maybe a portable ssd might still be supported. And probably tapes still as well ;-). But what format ???

#13 Re: Hardware & System Configuration » (core2duo workstation) NVIDIA Quadro FX 770 m - devuan reasonable? » 2020-09-26 20:57:16

Hi

Yes it should be supported by the Nouveau driver . You can try a live ISO to check it out.

#14 Re: Installation » Beowulf - Unknown group 'kvm'. » 2020-09-26 07:28:19

#15 Re: Devuan » Debian has fallen. What now? » 2020-09-21 17:41:09

Hi again

With the above reasons Devuan is not meant for you. So go and look somewhere else. Stop trolling, please.

#16 Re: Devuan » Debian has fallen. What now? » 2020-09-21 17:12:21

Hi

Please relax just a bit ,-)). The world is not going to an end just yet. If you have something to tell, then tell it. Stop accusing and behave friendly please. Devuan is doing what it is doing just fine. And people who uses and support it are friendly to each other.

Have a nice day

#17 Re: Devuan » Looking for a new system » 2020-09-21 17:06:21

Hi

No it is not. There are some empty packages for directing calls to the relevant non systemd packages. Where are you looking. I look here https://pkginfo.devuan.org/cgi-bin/d1pk … e=chimaera .

#18 Re: Desktop and Multimedia » Removing XFCE after installing MATE » 2020-09-20 19:45:43

Hi

You can also use tasksel as root to reset and change the install to a default state. It works very well at least in debian.

#19 Re: Other Issues » [SOLVED] ceres repos "stuck" ? » 2020-09-17 07:22:38

Hi

My mistake. but there are python2 and python3. My suggestion is to make sure both are installed. Later in the development proces python2 might be removed.

#21 Re: Other Issues » [SOLVED] ceres repos "stuck" ? » 2020-09-16 06:22:32

Hi

Yes. To be aware and have some knowledge is sometimes required. Now it upgrades python as well :-)

#22 Re: Hardware & System Configuration » CONMANN instead of WICD, any users experience? » 2020-09-14 20:24:10

Hi

Yes ifup and ifdown does work if /etc/network/interfaces are properly configured.

This is what I use after "upgrading" to Chiamaera.

#25 Re: Desktop and Multimedia » Beowulf crashes often » 2020-09-11 07:13:48

Hi

Have you tried with the backports kernel and drivers. It is quite wellknown that kernel 4.19 is a bit to old to support Ryzen 2700X. And there have been reported numerous problems with that should be solved by now.

Have a nice day
