Why did you stop posting over at bunsenlabs?

I knew the error in that sysdfree instruction, was waiting on you to correct it.

Ah, good to know, thanks! big_smile

EDIT: so I take it that you don't know how to package then? This is a good guide: https://www.debian.org/doc/manuals/debmake-doc/

And also:

Why recursively copy a single file to $HOME as root? That makes no sense at all hmm

EDIT2: and why install the build-essential package? It doesn't supply anything that's needed for your suggestion.

It's almost as if you don't know what you're talking about...

We had a similar situation over at forums.debian.net after I managed to piss off another user with my (in)famous interpersonal skills to such a degree that they started blanking their old posts (of which there were thousands, many of them very useful) and we had to ban them to stop it.


Yeah, you are just a cunt.

Well yes but packaging stuff up properly is much better, would you not agree?

https://xkcd.com/1987/ applies equally well to cpanm as it does to pip.

Anyway, I've upgraded the obmenu-generator package in my repository to v0.88:

https://download.opensuse.org/repositor … -1_all.deb

I wouldn't apt install any of your shit.

Fully agree on editing posts through the ages.

Or you could do this...

First sudo apt-get install build-essential cpanminus git

then

git clone git://github.com/trizen/obmenu-generator
    sudo cp obmenu-generator/obmenu-generator /usr/bin
    sudo cp -r obmenu-generator/schema.pl ~/.config/obmenu-generator
    sudo cpanm Linux::DesktopFiles
    sudo cpanm Data::Dump
    sudo chmod 777 /usr/bin/obmenu-generator

and finally

obmenu-generator -d

offtopic but ive found it easier to use a dedicated multimedia distro like batocera linux to have kodi up and running on separate partition.

https://batocera.org/ is a retro gaming os and has kodi preinstalled.

Have a look at https://wiki.batocera.org/kodi

Chimaera aka testing does not have security updates, only the stable branch gets security updates.

It does say in the debian wiki guide that this needs to be done as a separate set of commands/instruction, so it might be a case of some incompatibilities having dependencies run for such an operation.  It also non-free so it has to be done via the user at run time i guess.

Nice,  what sort of work would you do on that bit of tech. How does it fair with ncurses based programs ? for example wyrd

#15 Re: Installation » [Solved] Beowulf - Nvidia legacy 340XX driver will not install. » 2020-09-17 12:50:34

Might be because you didnt install the linux-headers first, i dont know but there is definetly something buggy going on due to that nvidia-persistenced i believe.

A few of the steps i did were probably not needed like sudo depmod, update-initramfs and update-grub as i think they get automatically done after module building, must be the irish in me, to be sure to be sure!

#16 Re: Installation » [Solved] Beowulf - Nvidia legacy 340XX driver will not install. » 2020-09-17 08:02:21

No worries Altoid glad it worked for ya.

Can you setup X from nvidia-settings for the 3 monitors. Ive never messed with nvidia settings as i dont game or doing anything hard on a computer other than watching videos and reading ebooks.

package https://packages.debian.org/buster/nvidia-settings

To answer your question about the driver, i have no idea sorry.

#17 Re: Installation » [Solved] Beowulf - Nvidia legacy 340XX driver will not install. » 2020-09-16 04:13:50

Ok i managed to get it working.

This is what i did.

first blacklist nouveau driver.

sudo nano /etc/modprobe.d/nvidia-blacklists-nouveau.conf

# You need to run "update-initramfs -u" after editing this file.

# see #580894
blacklist nouveau

then

sudo apt install linux-headers-$(uname -r) build-essential

sudo apt install nvidia-legacy-340xx-kernel-dkms --no-install-recommends

sudo apt install nvidia-legacy-340xx-driver --no-install-recommends

sudo depmod

sudo update-initramfs -u

sudo update-grub

my xorg.conf

If you have a look at the debian package tracker it looks like there is issues with nvida-persistence and it is being removed, i dont know how this affects Beowulf stable kernel but it affects module building in the latest kernels, so if you are using a kernel from testing or som such latest kernel this is maybe why you are having issues.

https://tracker.debian.org/pkg/nvidia-persistenced

#19 Re: Installation » [Solved] Beowulf - Nvidia legacy 340XX driver will not install. » 2020-09-15 14:53:43

What kernel are you using Altoid ?

Will try to install nvidia again on the machine i have that uses 340xx again with beowulf and see if i run into same issues.

Edit: Just doing a little researching, can you confirm where the nvidia-persistenced binary is located Altoid ?

is it in /usr/bin or /usr/lib/ ?

I used this many years ago when i started out with linux, good to see it is in the debian repos. Amazing perl programming.

If anyone is interested, check out this git page that hosts ceni source among other historical stuff (aptosid/kanotix/sidux etc). https://github.com/fullstory-morgue

#21 Re: Installation » [Solved] Beowulf - Nvidia legacy 340XX driver will not install. » 2020-09-14 15:21:23

what does your ascii installation have to with your issue, are you using beowulf or ascii ?

Also, why not follow this guide ?

https://wiki.debian.org/NvidiaGraphicsDrivers

#23 Re: Installation » [Solved] Beowulf - Nvidia legacy 340XX driver will not install. » 2020-09-14 12:23:21

Maybe need to modprobe /dev/nvidia* ?

Have you tried nvidia-xconfig, or is that not a good idea ? I remember using it when i had nvidia setup that used the 340xx to get it working.

#24 Re: Hardware & System Configuration » Post Your Sources List » 2020-09-09 11:41:01

Pretty standard stable stuff really.

deb http://deb.devuan.org/merged beowulf main contrib
deb http://deb.devuan.org/merged beowulf-security main contrib
deb http://deb.devuan.org/merged beowulf-updates main contrib
deb http://deb.devuan.org/merged beowulf-backports main contrib

I did try out mx linux repos to pull in xfce4 -v 4.14 to see if it could be done but that was just an experiment and not something i would keep long term.

zapper, yeah good point in regards to mozilla, i suppose if the goog keeps the paychecks coming they might be in a position where they are obliged to do their bidding.
