I'll be back sometime later with the correct install for now I'll just try some other os.
Thanks for all your help that this forum is noted for.

#2 Re: Devuan » Repositories » 2024-02-15 22:30:42

Anyone have an idea of how I can change to Devuan repositories or is that not possible.

#3 Re: Devuan » Repositories » 2024-02-15 22:18:56

Well then I guess I installed Peppermint.   I am befuddled myself.

#4 Re: Devuan » Repositories » 2024-02-15 21:21:05

No I haven't but remember this is a VIRGIN install.  Those repositories were added by the install process so i assumed they were good to go and I thought Devuan was based on Debian but with Systemd removed.   AMIRITE lol

#5 Re: Devuan » Repositories » 2024-02-15 20:57:10 is the link to show virgin repositories

#6 Re: Devuan » Devuan vs Arcolinux » 2024-02-15 13:43:51

Currently on Manjaro but I have been known to 'hop' around. lol

That is the one thing that makes this forum one of the absolute best there is.

#8 Re: Devuan » Devuan vs Arcolinux » 2024-02-15 01:36:27

Thanks, that is exactly what I am doing now after Devuan went totally south.  lol
I'll probably be back again sometime.

Is the Devuan servers down for maintenance as I cannot update just a bunch of

Could not connect to ( - connect (111: Connection refused) Cannot initiate the connection to (2a04:4e42:8a::644). - connect (101: Network is unreachable

etc over and over

#11 Re: Devuan » Memory - neofetch vs screenfetch » 2024-02-04 19:05:23

What I meant was when neofetch is run it shows Xmib bytes
Screenfetch shows a much larger use of mib's

Does anyone have an idea/information on why the 2 mentions vary by over 300mb?

#13 Re: Devuan » Devuan vs Arcolinux » 2024-02-02 21:48:07

Never thought of that scenario.  Good idea.

#14 Re: Devuan » Devuan vs Arcolinux » 2024-02-02 18:27:59

Nah, I think I will stay here..  Just more comfortable.   I am familiar with Arch at the commandline but Arco just didn't feel right even after installing the software I wanted.
At root level command line it would take 2x's to get a letter to show.
Whisker started up in the wrong place, top instead of bottom.
h well, all is good here.

Well, being the idiot that I am I just had to try Arcolinux,   Well  that didn't work out at all.  Weird terminal input, whisker showing in the wrong place and just in general not comfortable.   Soooo, here I came back.   Such a pleasure.  I have to stop these urges to try a new Linux Distro.

I have to say the Devs have done a great job.  Devuan is GREAT.   Install was flawless and the amount of packages is way lower than any Debian-based release at 1502 and that is with all my games, well only 4 really, but still.   On others it was always over 2000 or high 1900's.  I view that as a big plus as too much software that isn't being used is kinda pointless.
Thanks again Dev's.   Great job.

#17 Desktop and Multimedia » Window centering » 2023-12-11 17:53:42

Firefox, terminal, thunderbird do not center in window, however, Xfce Settings, Synaptic, Xfce4-appearance settings, Gnome disk utility do center in the window, so I am kinda at a loss as to why some  do center and others don't.   
Any ideas?
