Won't be the first time that's been said about me. What do you think is mad, updating Siduction or using i3 on it?

Well, I think I've said this before: my updates are done after 3-4 weeks at the latest (due to vacations) and there the download is at most ~ 7-800 MB. Otherwise weekly. Because of the risk of breakage.

So. siduction you lucky guy.    devil

Re: Distro-hoppers anonymous

Fair point. Maybe I was lucky this time because it all seems to be working fine.

[Edit; the login screen keeps freezing when I use the newest kernel, so you're probably right although the problem is easily fixed; I just use an earlier one instead. It's a problem I've had before, when I used Neptune (a Debian distro with KDE).]

Well, that's not very meaningful. Please

inxi -SGxxx

or
Which desktop?
Which login manager?
What are the last ~ 20 entries in the .xsession-errors?

First, refresh the system. Don't log in via the login screen, but press Ctrl+Alt+F1 and log in as root. Then run apt update && apt dist-upgrade. Watch out for any updates that affect the login manager.

When it is done: systemctl reboot and try again to log in as user via the login manager.

I decided to give Fedora a spin on a virtual machine earlier in the week. I had no luck. The live session boots but all I get in the end is an empty and dead desktop. I get a blue-grey background and the top bar with clock, shut down button etc but nothing works.

Any ideas on what might be the issue?
I am using Virtualbox. I have used VB for trying out both Linux distros and BSDs and have never seen this before.

Hello Martin, only Fedora forum can tell you something by pasting errors/virtualbox/xorg/wayland logs, i did upgrade from a fixed workstation. I'm lucky as i am a complete beginner in fedora. luckily I had no issues during upgrades.

Unfortunately I have not advanced to this OS, I'm not fast as i have been on my early Debian time. Sorry mate, only an orientation i can tell you pay a visit to the fedora forum.

Re: Distro-hoppers anonymous

Currently testing Exton's spin of MX-21, as a live disk. It has LXQT as its window manager and looks pretty good, except that as usual for an Exton release you have to install your own office suite, which I think is odd for a distro / spin with a 2.8 GB download size;

Re: Distro-hoppers anonymous

Is LXQT using mutter for Window Manager?
They used to run on openbox, but think I read somewhere that they changed the default to mutter.

I had a quick google for this, and it doesn't appear that it uses mutter as standard although it seems it can be made to use it;

I find I'm getting freeze-ups when I try this;

inxi -SGxxx

though I'm not quite sure why. I'm in Mabox at the moment (which I've just updated) but will try again later.
