Re: Devuan Jessie

That is the workaround to which I was referring, but it's really a minor thing, I shut down from the terminal most of the time anyway.

I have to say though, the whole setup is pretty sprightly on this dual-core 1GHz machine.

Re: Devuan Jessie

In the end, I have reinstalled my netbook with Devuan Jessie with XFCE so I can do a clean dist-upgrade to the next release (ascii).

This should prove interesting.

Re: Devuan Jessie

In the end, it worked until a udev issue prevented MTP devices from working.

So back to Devuan Jessie the machine went and there it will stay until after my oncall time is over next week. smile

Re: Devuan Jessie

I guess light-locker doesn't work as it makes a DBus call that goes nowhere.

No worries, installed xscreensaver and bound Windows+L to xscreensaver-command --lock.

We already have the rather beautiful slock included in the base system (thanks to the suckless-tools package), why not try that instead?

I don't think jwz wants you to use his outdated package anyway...  monkey

I like NM because I can manage VPN for work with it also, which I believe wicd isn't able to do. Or at least it wasn't the last time I looked into it. Please educate me if it can handle openconnect stuff, I'd love to try it.

Have a look at cmst that can do VPN, uses connman for underpinnings.

Afraid I couldn't resist winding jwz up, ok bitching about stable but when I report a bug to Debian rather than HIM and against the ver in Buster/Sid, which is also present in a rolling distro like Gentoo... well the guy is just too up-tight (not mentioning #878373 for my LXQt (Buster) install. ).  The guy needs to lighten up or he'll have a stroke.

You do realise that jwz was just trolling the list, right?

Anyway Jamie has earned the right to be as grumpy as he wants, his contributions to the open source community are the stuff of legend, we would do well to remember that.

Re: Devuan Jessie

Sometimes I rise to stuff like that.  I guess I could refrain from being grumpy back, but it's less fun.  I'd have taken his response quietly if I'd made a bugreport upstream to him and got grumped at for picking Debian, since any fix won't ever make it into Stretch where most people are, the issue not being security related.. at least I can't think of a way to exploit it.

In his place I too would get grumpy at a distro which by policy won't update a package which has lost some functionality due to outside influences, namely changes in the results, and thus how they have to be parsed.

Anyhow, the fix is to update, but how will Debian know what they're shipping is broken (or at least functionally impaired) and needs updating unless it's reported to Debian?

Seems functional so far. What I have done:

  1. Installed Devuan 1.0.0 to a VM with encrypted partitions (habit), selected LXDE as desktop

  2. Added BL repos as on: https://www.bunsenlabs.org/repositories.html (and the key)

  3. Installed bunsen-meta-all

  4. Restarted

Looks like there is a wicd/NetworkManager conflict to resolve, but that should be a matter of messing with the autostart file. Not rocket science.

Hi,

do you had any problem running bl-welcome? :

enable "contrib" and "non-free"? [Y/n] Y

Editing sources list failed. This script will exit.
Please open /etc/
 .....

What is the best way? Edit usr/lib/bunsen/welcome/check-repos and add-debian-backports
to change debian in devuan?
