#1 Re: Installation » installing nvidia drivers on ascii 2.1 » 2020-01-14 15:31:53

https://dev1galaxy.org/viewtopic.php?id=3165

I didn't read through all the posts and thus don't know if it's related, however, I've had the above (link) 'problem' over and over again when using the repository packed packages of the NVIDIA driver.

Might help,

It seems, so far, that the issue with dependencies (not met and, thus, suggestions to deinstall {almost} all of KDE) are resolved if I install the «nvidia-driver-bin», with recommended packages (some in - some out), before I proceed with the «nvidia-driver» installation.

Thank you, working on it now, it gave some more info.
I'll come back with more info later.

Very strange, but it has been a continuous issue on three computers now, and for a while really; if I try to use the repository NVIDIA compiled packages, say trying to install 'nvidia-driver' (meta package), I am forced tor deinstall all the KDE environment?

Any suggestions to this?

Cheers,
Olav

Hei Terence.

Nice to have a «KDE-relative» on this forum!
Sorry for not being present earlier!

Well done Jaromil!!


Lets just discuss everything!
Political filters (as well as religious ones), sorting out, is just stupid; among various aspects of this OS I do recognise Devuan in a global political context, and as such, the former statement follows logically!

Please, let us not be like so many other forums/plenums but just open up discussions concerning «everything 'relevant'»; the virtual part of our existence is increasingly playing an influential role in peoples lives, thus, discuss and argue, concrete or abstract, analyse and synthesise ...

Although this is primarily a distro forum I think it's not inappropriate to open up for a (even) wider discussion, not at least given the founding premises for its formation.

Cheers,
Olav

Wow, and "yes  jaromil, we now have a clear picture of where Dyne ( & you ) is coming from."
Reading what little is on the mailing list, it seemed less likely I'd interact with dyne - concerning
anything Devuan.

My next donation will not go thru dyne! We'll chat about that one day.  tongue

Strange with such a harsh reply to that post?

#9 Re: Desktop and Multimedia » Is "apt autoremove" still trustworthy (as it used to be)? » 2019-06-16 13:55:32

Be fair Giorgos, irritated you may be on HoaS but you shouldn't blame it on Devuan; in my view, this forum, as well as the distro, is quite well maintained.

#10 Re: Hardware & System Configuration » Display manager issue » 2019-06-16 13:37:46

Just a thought, but I would do a «memtest» to see if the RAM is alright also.

#12 Re: Hardware & System Configuration » Canaima MG101A3 - Xorg can't start » 2019-03-09 17:11:51

«libGL error: unable to load driver: i915_dri.so»
I had a quick search for one of those errors: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=522127

Hei!

Well, I think you are on the tracks of it; this has probably to do with the 64bit version alone.
Be sure to enable your system for 32bit compatibility.

#14 Re: Off-topic » Old Dell optiplex 780 sff died » 2019-03-06 15:22:25

Hei!

I've got four PCs running, six if you include the laptop and mobile-phone, and the eldest is from 1999 (running on SuSE 9.1); I've built most of them myself so I kind of swap and change parts not working all the time, however, the original CPU and RAM is still in use in the oldest computer smile
I'm kind of a nostalgic person, so running and keeping a stock of old computers and components, as well as old software, appeals to me.

The only thing I keep in mind watching, and upgrading, are the hard-drives; the PC I'm using now is from 2007 (MB, CPU, GPU, RAM etc), all  my correspondence, mail, logs, student-projects and so on are kept here; my production PCs are far better, but I don't care changing my day to day PC to one of those as long as the current set-up works well.

As stated above, this PC is from 2007 and has no problem playing and watching «common» music and videos at all; forcing it to work with resolutions greater than e.g. 4000x6000 px (videos), might be a different matter though; I don't know.

Cheers,
Olav

#15 Re: Hardware & System Configuration » Devuan on SSD » 2019-03-02 17:19:23

Hei!

I don't know why you do not want a SWAP partition, however, SSDs works quite fine with Devuan; just remember to set it, the drive/partition, up with the parameter «discard».
To my knowledge, I would ignore any «discreet» variables if not specifically needed.

Cheers,
Olav

Hei Pedro.

I'm a musician/composer from Norway, who's been on Linux for 15 years, or so; competently mainly as a system administrator: I set up DAW's.

#18 Re: Hardware & System Configuration » MS Exchange Email + Calender for the KDE Desktop? » 2018-11-29 22:06:41

I'm not sure if I understand you fully, and my first reply may suggest I have misinterpreted what you meant; if you want to import data from MS Outlook 's components to Kontact's similar ones you may find it might or might not work, I have never done that so I do not know; but, if you want to change fully to another «suite» similar to MS Outlook , I think Kontact could work just fine.

You might look here for more details on KMail and Korganiser:
https://docs.kde.org/stable5/en/pim/kor … index.html
https://docs.kde.org/stable5/en/pim/kmail2/index.html

#19 Hardware & System Configuration » KDE Plasma 5, no audio-devices available for recording. » 2018-11-26 15:43:14

Devuan 2.0
KDE Plasma 5

I struggle to get a list of available input ports shown in «KDE's systemsettings5» → «Phonon Audio and Video»; they are there, at least two (normal input from default audio-device and an USB webcam) but they aren't displayed.
Sound and video work otherwise just fine.

I do not use PulseAudio, however that has never been an issue earlier.

Thanks for any suggestions on this.

Cheers,
Olav

#20 Re: Off-topic » Music » 2018-11-23 16:51:10

Hello zephyr!

I'm fond of King Crimson as well; from Lark's tongues to Red, very nice they all are.
I am also very keen on Jethro Tull, slightly different to King Crimson though.

Cheers,
Olav

#21 Re: Off-topic » Music » 2018-11-21 07:35:45

Siouxsie and the Banshees, Swans, Arne Nordheim, Einstürzende Neubauten, Laibach, Nina Hagen, Raga Rockers, Joy Division, Dmitrij Sjostakovitsj, Igor Stravinskij, Bernard Parmegiani ... and a lot more!

#22 Re: Hardware & System Configuration » MS Exchange Email + Calender for the KDE Desktop? » 2018-11-21 06:26:52

Hello!

Kontact could be a descent alternative; the bundle of software: KMail, KOrganiser ... https://community.kde.org/KDE_PIM, has served as a good PIM for my purpose for 15 years ++. However, with major upgrades, version upgrades, you should be aware that the migration tools doesn't always work, and as such I always do it manually; hence, I would suggest you read up on KDE's directory structure, which change from time to time (by default that is; you may actually overwrite it and do whatever you like, if you know how to), and reserve some time when doing those upgrades.

Cheers,
Olav





NB!
This thread is probably in the wrong subcategory.

#23 Re: Off-topic » I am new to Linux however i dislike systemd » 2018-11-17 23:17:18

Hello cynicfm!

I really agree with your general attitude; I don't think I understood all of your text, but, being frustrated myself I can easily relate to (which is what my interpreted  views are of) you're opinion(s).

Having been using SuSE/OpenSuSE for 10 years+++, I was quite astonished when I became aware of what was going on with the 'systemd' agenda of the distro.

All the same, happy coding!!

Olav

#24 Re: Other Issues » How to get youtube-dl-gui? [solved] » 2018-11-17 20:56:38

Slightly beside the point, but, I use youtube.dll as the download-manager of SMPlayer/SMTube; that couple works fine for me.

#25 Re: Desktop and Multimedia » Slow graphics under nouveau » 2018-10-29 20:58:00

Hello xbcb0.

Recent upgrade from Jessie to Ascii:
I have an old 550TI NVIDIA device on my work desktop; after I installed the proprietary driver, all was fine X-vise; the Nouveau driver, by the way, was initially freezing sessions very frequently previously to which.
