indeed, that's strange and an issue for ascii. it should have this version 3.20190514.1~deb9u1 from debian.

btw, beowulf got the update 3 days ago :
2019-05-15 upgrade intel-microcode:amd64 3.20190312.1 3.20190514.1

#3 Re: Desktop and Multimedia » MATE volume control issue (beowulf) » 2019-05-16 17:22:27

never had such an issue with MATE - beowulf.
using experimental MATE right now, so can't confirm this.
maybe send a bug report with details, ~/.xsession-errors perhaps and whatever related in system logs?

also did you try using alsamixer from console to see if that's a pulseaudio-mate thing, or something else?

#4 Re: News & Announcements » Devuan 2.0 ASCII Stable » 2019-05-08 08:22:15

also running latest linux-libre with beowulf/ceres, "libre" feels good smile
from time to time i switch back to stock devuan/debian kernel.
trinity is available in a devuan fork distro (exe gnu/linux). tried trinity from their repos and it run ok, with a few glitches.

#5 Re: Hardware & System Configuration » [Solved] Webserver: connection refused » 2019-05-08 08:16:28

running a fully upgraded beowulf server with webmin (migrated from stretch), have no such issues.
as neutron_stz writes, check server logs, firewall, etc..

#6 Re: Hardware & System Configuration » [Solved] Beowulf update holds back packages » 2019-05-02 06:34:03

just saw this,
`apt install elogind` && accept libsystemd0 removal
does the trick, nothing else needed.

#7 Re: Other Issues » Beowulf - Wordpress and PHP 7.3 » 2019-03-26 11:34:26

i've been running about a dozen wordpress sites on beowulf with php7.3/mariadb. seen no issues there.
you might also find wp-cli ( really useful.. smile

#8 Re: Desktop and Multimedia » Mate panel lockups » 2019-03-15 13:29:02

did you try mate with slim+consolekit ?
iirc, it works better that way in ascii, and it's also the suggested setup :

#9 Re: Hardware & System Configuration » Problem with mounting partitions » 2019-03-12 12:40:38

what Desktop Environment are you using? there are different packages depending on DE.

#10 Re: Hardware & System Configuration » Problem with mounting partitions » 2019-03-12 11:04:33

do you have cgmanager and DE's polkit deb packages installed?

#11 Re: Installation » [SOLVED] disabling slim » 2019-03-12 10:47:57

if you don't need slim at all, remove it.

# apt remove slim

I didn't see this until today. I'm totally confused as to what you're saying is EOL..."jessie/stretch/ascii php versions"? I must be missing something. Are you just referring to versions on sury? Surely ascii php 7.2 isn't EOL for example.

i'm talking about php5.6 in jessie, php7.0 in ascii/stretch (official distro php packages) :
they do get security updates through distro repos still, but some web-apps are already complaining about old php versions.

#13 Re: Other Issues » [SOLVED] Security update delays » 2019-03-04 22:10:12

check your /etc/apt/preferences.d/ files. i'd guess some apt pinning is to blame..
proceed with security upgrades first! smile

#14 Re: Other Issues » [SOLVED] Security update delays » 2019-03-04 21:47:05

are you missing -security repos perhaps? what does apt policy libssl1.0.2 say?

other than that, maybe network or mirror error, sync delay, other.. (?)

#15 Re: Other Issues » PHP 7.2 on Jessie » 2019-03-04 21:33:08

i think openssl >= 1.1 is required by some newer php extensions. don't use openssl from 3rd party, but i guess since libssl1.1 is not available in jessie/ascii, some people would want to use those to get newer php7.3 version.
note: jessie/stretch/ascii php versions are already officially EOL, and will also be leaving sury repo soon...

the other solution is to build from source. but some people don't want to install *-dev packages on production machines, and others simply can't/don't know how to compile. (btw, reproducible builds is a great project..)
anyway, it's all about choices/user freedom, i think.. you have all these options available, proceed with "caution".. smile

2 more cents on this topic smile

EDIT: Just to note: I just testing and commenting out that repo and doing and update and dist-upgrade doesn't downgrade that openssl version. Also, after reading the home page at it certainly appears that the repo is managed by someone who knows what they're doing.

yes i also think it's a trusted source. sury is a debian developer (packaging php among others) and also involved in PHP : …
also using his stretch/ascii repo for newer php7.1 & php7.2 on some servers. and in some cases php5.6 branch, since php5 is not avaiable in stretch/ascii.

and you can pin a package to specific version/repo if you like. check :

ctrl+S doesn't work, not sure why. here's a blurry screeshot (sorry about quality):

#19 Re: Hardware & System Configuration » Shutdown encrypted LVM on Beowulf » 2019-02-24 16:33:24

no it doesn't, unfortunately..  shutdown is very fast, but cryptdisk & cryptdisk-early fail (red). no other messages there..
maybe someone else can try this too?

diff from default :

diff cryptdisks-functions.orig cryptdisks-functions

#20 Re: Hardware & System Configuration » Changing desktop enviroments » 2019-02-24 12:54:48

install relevant packages (usually DEname or DEname-desktop-environment) and choose the new DE on login screen, preferably after reboot.
remove unwanted DEs afterwards, if you don't want to get too "heavy" on system resources.

#21 Re: Hardware & System Configuration » Shutdown encrypted LVM on Beowulf » 2019-02-24 12:51:22

added these lines and there are no cryptdisks delays, system shutdown is almost instant, but cryptdisks stop fails for some reason. too quick to view exactly on shutdown - just a glimpse of "cryptdisks: failed".
so, not exactly sure if that works.

#22 Re: Hardware & System Configuration » Shutdown encrypted LVM on Beowulf » 2019-02-20 13:41:13

having the same problem since installing devuan... bug was also present in debian without-systemd, but not in MX linux (they have packaged a patched version).

there is a bug #271 for cryptsetup / delays in shutdown.
as mentioned, new file in beowulf is /lib/cryptsetup/cryptdisks-functions, and no ascii patch applies there now.

in Devuan you need ascii-backports, not stretch-backports. you shouldn't be mixing Debian/Devuan repos, not a good practice...

yes, always turn on a screen lock in screensaver/suspend.
but in general i agree with @stanz, that should be a choice, not a default smile
