Re: Distro-hoppers anonymous

Gorgeous, ain't it? Is that via siduction or straight Debian sid? Either way, lovely. 656 RAM is about the same as what I get with Buster cinnamon/gnome-shell. When I had plasma running on buster I was able to trim that RAM a bit more.

Looks quite cool, and how's the latest KDE working? I do plan to try a minimal Plasma build again and will try that repo for the packages.

You mean no way is that siduction?

https://news.siduction.org/2018/05/rele … -2018-3-0/

I love this bit...

This release comes with the name “patience 2018.3.0”. How we deal with release names in the future is unclear. The next release will ship whatever we come up with. Maybe it’ll be just numbers…

Siduction is a sid distrolet with an active forum. If you want to run Debian sid with minimal issues, siduction and/or the siduction forums is the way to go. Previously aptosid, which I ran for 2 years as a relative linux n00b. My graduation from Ubuntu to Debian.

-edit- I get it, I was ignoring the emojis. Never siduction because OOTB siduction is never gorgeous. Yes, they're very loyal to Debian in that respect.

KDE looks cool but seems to always be a work in progress, and same could be said for GNOME. Openbox/tint2/jgmenu seems to be pretty rock solid in comparison.

I find KDE in Buster to have some serious issues as it is as cannot save sessions.

Re: Distro-hoppers anonymous

I've been rocking Manjaro since I got my new hardware about early May this year.

It's the first time in years that I'm not using Debian or a Debian based distro. One thing that has not changed for me is my DE. Xfce is my pref these days. Been using that since the Xfce version of CrunchBang, with a couple of brief forays into Mate and Cinnamon .

So far Manjaro has been rock solid. I turned to it because Debian and it's derivatives did not want to sync my raid array after several tries. Manjaro didn't even need any instructions given to it. It just detected and synced the array automagically.

I ran Siduction with LXQT, then Openbox for several years. Excellent distro, good people.

If you're looking for Plasma that just works: (other than the 'Name Brands')

KaOS - LFS, rolling, very fresh, light, active community, community packages repo, pacman - single developer, limited, but adequate repos.

Artix - Arch, rolling, stable and testing ISOs, active community, systemd free, AUR repo.

There may be others, but these are the two I've spent time playing on with good results.

My other box I ran sidux->aptosid->siduction for years and now run BL on it. Agreed siduction is quite solid and has a great lineage. If you like Sid then siduction is it, but I've ran BL upgraded to Sid (with selected packages from Experimental) for a while and that worked well till I built my new Ryzen system which now has Lithium.

Yep, the dist-upgrades warning section is a great early warning system resource for all those who run Sid, even if not siduction. Always made it a habit to check it for any reports of breakage on a d-u or when there's a transition going on in Sid that might cause breakages.

@hhh - Yeah, LinuxBBQ was another one I ran for a long while, too. Probably the next one after I used Siduction.

Functional O.S.

Debian testing + Ubuntu LTS. By combining these two bases we
have obtained stability, security and a vast number of available software.

Nicely responsive, way too much software installed, easy to customize.
