Status. Since writing this post I have reloaded both my laptop and desktop systems to the new Chimaera (amd64 desktop) release and all is back to normal.

I have got into the habit of using the now familiar apt-get for command-line repo installs of packages and never really used apt unless I was following directions from a post here... For packages from my .deb backups I generally use dpkg -i -G .

Anyhow, Live and learn. I liked the excitement of the rolling release of testing, but I prefer the durabillity of the official release.

Thank you, sorry for the noise. ;-)

The testing & Daedalus is there because I felt adventurous a few weeks back.

Chimaera is the medium I installed from lately. (I do that a bit)

And Beowulf is for backports and other packages I use that weren't available in Chimaera at the time I re-installed the OS.

This is on my laptop where I feel a bit more adventurous.

I was wondering how to fix the signatures as it mentions in the error, changing version numbers and codenames...

Thank you for the replies

Hi I got this message when updating today, Knowing the newest release has arrived.

I had a look at the man page but didn't see a way to correct the error, can anyone help.

Repository 'http://deb.devuan.org/merged testing InRelease' changed its 'Version' value from '4.0.0' to '5.0'Repository 'http://deb.devuan.org/merged testing InRelease' changed its 'Codename' value from 'chimaera' to 'daedalus'This must be accepted explicitly before updates for this repository can be applied. See apt-secure(8) manpage for details.

My sources list, yes... it could be simpler.

linux-image-amd64 is a "Task" package, enables updates for your amd64 kernel.

What you do need is Guile, dkms, linux-headers and linux-headers-common to suit your kernel version, linux-image-5.10.0-9-amd64 (5.10.70-1) installed to get your nvidia drivers/modules installed and running.

#6 Re: Installation » [SOLVED] Apt-get update error during Chimaera upgrade » 2021-10-15 02:05:20

Hi, I don't think it is a concern for updating/upgrading chimaera. Your Earth package may survive intact.

Hi, for me...

ip link gives

glenn@asus-r552jv:~$ 

"service dbus restart" , works but disconnects the network first, then I have to struggle (multiple tries) to reconnect tethering.

"service networking restart" , attempts to reconnect, usually failing because the usb cable needs to be detached several times before a reconnect, sometimes rebooting works, but always a manual cable reconnect is required.

Thank you for your consideration...

#8 Re: News & Announcements » Sudo Vulnerability CVE-2021-3156 » 2021-10-07 00:13:34

My bad. I used the command wrong.

Thanks for letting me know, I thought I must be doing something wrong... But, good to know.

ahahaha. relief!

#9 Re: News & Announcements » Sudo Vulnerability CVE-2021-3156 » 2021-10-05 21:01:47

Now I'm confused. And I don't use sudo or would have it installed if I could arrange it.

Using the example above... I get

glenn@asus-r552jv:~$ sudoedit -s /
usage: sudoedit [-AknS] [-r role] [-t type] [-C num] [-D directory] [-g group] [-h host] [-p prompt] [-R directory] [-T timeout] [-u user] file ...
glenn@asus-r552jv:~$

But checking with apt install... I get

root@asus-r552jv:~# apt install sudo
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree... Done
Reading state information... Done
sudo is already the newest version (1.9.5p2-3).
sudo set to manually installed.

I'd get rid of it (sudo), but it is tied to too many other programs...

root@asus-r552jv:~# apt remove sudo

Do you want to continue? [Y/n] n
Abort.

That "apt autoremove" list is for after sudo is removed.

Anyhow... I still won't use it. I'm sure I removed the config files from /etc/...

No, my wireless stopped working too. But with the command I get...

glenn@asus-r552jv:~$ connmanctl technologies
/net/connman/technology/ethernet
  Name = Wired
  Type = ethernet
  Powered = True
  Connected = True
  Tethering = False
/net/connman/technology/bluetooth
  Name = Bluetooth
  Type = bluetooth
  Powered = False
  Connected = False
  Tethering = False
/net/connman/technology/wifi
  Name = WiFi
  Type = wifi
  Powered = True
  Connected = False
  Tethering = False
glenn@asus-r552jv:~$ 

Although I have no wifi devices listed in the networking app in the taskbar.

I have been watching to see if there was something I have done to disable the wifi, bluetooth seems to work, but I haven't found a use for it.

it was as if someone has opened up my computer and removed all network cards.

Currently, I'm using ipheth tethering from my phone, which works while I'm not at home but it a bit of a pain to get going.

I'm following with interest. Thank you for the tips.

+1 Rufus, had always worked for me too.

#16 Re: Off-topic » [SOLVED] Devuan GNU/Linux 5 (daedalus) Released as Next Testing! » 2021-09-07 23:46:00

Hi, I'm using Daedalus on my asus R552jv laptop and my main box and it's working quite well. I was interested in seeing and using the latest kde.
One point, I just added Daedalus to my sources list and upgraded, I still have chimaera and beowulf in there too (just for a few packages, like fslint), it's like a rolling release now on my systems (reminds me of my pclinux daze).

I'm prepared to do a full re-install when required. I'm enjoying the new versions an have had no problems, thank you.

#17 Re: Installation » [SOLVED] KDE "Displays" settings max resolution not higher than 800x600 » 2021-09-04 22:27:14

The firmware file is "firmware-realtek"

Info to read here, ref. https://packages.debian.org/buster/firmware-realtek

The package ...
Source: firmware-nonfree

I hope this helps.

#18 Re: Installation » [SOLVED] KDE "Displays" settings max resolution not higher than 800x600 » 2021-09-04 22:14:12

r8169 is a realtek network chip of some type. If your network is ok you can disregard the error message.

That file is probably in one of the other firware packages. Or the system was too slow to load it in time for the message. IMHO

edit.
I have it (the module and header, not the firmware) here on my system

glenn@asus-r552jv:~$ locate r8169
/lib/modules/5.10.0-7-amd64/kernel/drivers/net/ethernet/realtek/r8169.ko
/lib/modules/5.10.0-8-amd64/kernel/drivers/net/ethernet/realtek/r8169.ko

Hi, Maybe I missed it, but I usually have "main" in there too...

All the best Monti.

#21 Re: Hardware & System Configuration » Ascii kernel update borks laptop » 2021-08-11 02:17:41

If you download the file without installing you could find the package in /var/cache/apt/archives/

then you may install it with dpkg -i /var/cache/apt/archives/(package-name)

I hope this helps

#22 Re: Hardware & System Configuration » how do I set the default directory to / when I use su? » 2021-08-01 00:18:18

Hi, I wanted to do this because I don't have sudo enabled and I use su a lot, packaging updates... checking net and kernel logs and such.

I do it a lot and it was just something I thought I could do with my systems, laptop and desktops that would streamline the process for me.

I am very grateful to this community for all the support I get when I can't find a solution to a hack I want to implement.
I don't know much (anything, ... no motive) about real hacking) but try to keep my system as secure as possible and stay current as possible.

But this is mostly because I have disabled sudo that I use su so frequently.

Thank you again (I'll read that link now ...GNU...)

I know, right. :-)

Thank you for your advise, I got it working.

I added the cd / to /root/.profile
and used

source /root/.profile

but that didn't work, then I tried again with su - and it works.

So, I went back into my ~/.bashrc and uncommented my alias

alias su='su -'

and now it's working.

This box is fully-updated devuan_chimaera_4.0.a

Thank you everybody.

No, that's what I have to do. But thank you for trying to help me.

Because it's a one user system I only have to cd {enter} to get to /

I was looking or a shorter short cut. :-)

Cheers
