@brday . . . I don't understand your question. AFAIK weekly builds of the daedalus (testing) installer-iso are updated every Monday and available for download on our mirrors.

My question was about the repositories, latest or quarterly. In the system installation or already installed system, is there any way to modify the file containing the repositories, changing the quarterly repositories for latest repositories?

Re: JWM KIT love fest

@jwmkit what about cpu resources for jwmkit on daedalus vs chimaera

Memory usage doesn't have much effect of any kind imo unless it is extremely significant

For me, I would think cpu usage is probably more of a drain, on battery life more than memory usage anyhow and display more than both. wink

Do you mean like how archlinux based distros can be modified to build differently via PKGBUILDs?

Aka, do you mean the equivelant of PKGBUILDs in Deb format? Assuming such a thing even exists...

Not insane to think it might though.

That's a good question if so.

Wow!, I don't know how I missed your post.  It's been more than a month. I hope you didn't think I was ignoring you. Sorry.

I understand the concern of CPU usage.  Not only for performance, but battery life. I did not compare CPU usage of Daedalus with previous releases. Although I always keep an eye on HTOP,, and I can tell you CPU usage seemed pretty low, and I don't think it should be a concern.

Of course CPU usage is just like RAM usage.  Any noticeable difference is usually the result of additional services and software you install/configure.

No worries, I do the same thing... btw, probably. I mean as long as you don't use something like awesome, or a desktop environment, even Lumina i might add is considered in this! But yeah, if you don't use a bloated window manager or any desktop environments, you shouldn't have any significant battery life issues from the desktop appearance alone.

Re: JWM KIT love fest

Still a very good window manager. I just would like to say thank you for making it 10x better than it already was. I may have said this before, but I felt the need to thank you again.

You also have done some interesting changes on my behalf which pleased me even more. big_smile

Re: JWM KIT love fest

Glad to see that the time issue won't reoccur anymore. I am still surprised it snuck through. tongue

Re: JWM KIT love fest

Yes the issue with the time templates was a silly mistake. It shows the difference a single character can make when coding. in this case it was matter of lowercase vs uppercase.

For those who don't know what we are talking about.  The suggested templates for the tray clock used months instead of minutes.  This meant the minutes were only correct once per hour as they only change once a day. An embarrassing mistake, but one that was easy to make.

I have made embarrassing mistakes too,

something as simple as leaving apostrophes, like this:

MODULES="i915"

https://wiki.hyperbola.info/doku.php?id … el_modules

Was enough to make my system unbootable.

That frustrated me one hundred + times almost before I sought help to learn that was the problem.

Something so small can cause huge headaches eh?

Re: JWM KIT love fest

I've built iso images that include this JWM Kit:

https://www.gnuinos.org/mirror/daedalus/

Some contributions of my own are the dynamic menu and the logout dialog. The images also ship with a customized SpaceFM file manager containing the Trash plugin as well as Hopman integration. No dbus.

Re: JWM KIT love fest

Nice! It always makes me happy to see JWMKit used in a project.

Where do I report issues? (along with possible fixes)

Re: JWM KIT love fest

Thanks for the reply.  I hope you found the info useful. Most of the issues are just about polishing the menus and such. Let me know if I can provide any kind of info regarding the amixer issue. Also any help you might need with JWMKit.
