@Dizover: I have the same error messages with an old P3 (32-bit). Although after three retries or so with this "ata1" thing (that take about 1 minute), the startup process continues. I wonder what the low-spec system requirements for the new Salix are, because 14.1 was definetly useable (with the right programs of course) on a Pentium 3 of 2000.

It's perfect, I've been using Salixos for years and I have to thank Gapan for the work he does.
One technical question why not using the generic kernel (the one recommended by Pat Volkerding) is not lighter than the huge one?
Thanks

Hi everyone!
I had shelved Salix for several years and just did a fresh install on my old thinkpad T430s.
I'm glad to notice that everything works fine. Thank you for all this great work!

There is however an bug in the rc.thinkfan script.
On the fourth line it is written:

Code: Select all

BIN=/usr/bin/$NAME
when it should be:

Code: Select all

BIN=/usr/sbin/$NAME

Workaround: Set the systray-6 icon size to 'Adjust size automatically' or to fixed 31 pixels (for the default 30 pixels panel height!). As in my video.
Which one is better or worse is very easy to see when comparing with surrounding tooltips -- the distance between the top of the panel and the bottom of the tooltip is different according to 'Auto' or '31 Px' ... darn 'who cares about 1 Px' ... ;)
Which one is it? 31px or adjust size automatically?

If I set the icon size to 24 and panel height to 30, they also show up.

I have just done a fresh install of the RC3, and something strange happened. I chose to mount my data partition on /home/mimosa/Downloads, which worked, but the home directory was otherwise completely empty, in particular, without needed dot files to log in. I was able to log in normally from console.

It works fine if I do it by editing fstab manually after installation.

mimosa, my guess is you accidentally mounted it on /home/mimosa instead of Downloads.

I suppose it's possible, but I did do the whole thing two or three times while I was trying to work out what was up. Anyway, there's no way of telling now, and it works. By the way is this fstab line correct?

Code: Select all

/dev/sda2        /home/mimosa/Downloads btrfs defaults 1 2

Yes, I think so.

I just tried to "install multimedia codecs", and got a message saying "it seems you do not have the permissions to write the repository files". Same from xterm:

Code: Select all

mimosa[~]$ sudo salix-codecs-installer-gtk

EDIT scrub this, the reason is I set up my local repo, but it doesn't have any packages in it yet; so slapt-get is unhappy with that line in slapt-getrc

Fun fact, I had the exact same "issue" for the exact same reason in RC3.
A pleasant detail in this forum: several people pick a picture of their pet as their avatar. Who am I to do otherwise? ;-)
