Re: Fienix - New PowerPC Distro

@everyone: I pushed several updates to Fienix Soar. Updating from a Soar image should go smoothly and I think I tested everything adequately but let me know if you run into any issues. I also made some minor additions like additional printer support/drivers, additional samba support, ibus input meth...

Re: Fienix - New PowerPC Distro

I found an interesting new way to screw Fienix up. I was reading email but at some point I lost the internet connection. I closed the browser and tried to relaunch it but couldn't. So I tried to restart fienix, but clicking on the power button (or anything else) had no effect. I did the ctrl^alt^F ...

Re: Fienix - New PowerPC Distro

Re: Fienix - New PowerPC Distro

I'm about to run all the updates available via Synaptic for Fienix, but it is totally safe now? When I tried that a couple of months ago, I ended up to a broken system ('Mate' update had unsolvable dependency problems) and had to switch to a backup partition. What is the situation now? I would not ...

Re: Fienix - New PowerPC Distro

I tried copying to that thumb drive two more times. The second time left the drive invisible to GParted as well as to Ubuntu's P!aces menu! Next I dug up a micro SD card. GParted said it was empty ("unallocated") to my surprise. I went ahead with dd if=Downloads/fienix-soar_3.0-20200426.img of=/dev...

Re: Fienix - New PowerPC Distro

Could someone fill me in: is Xorg.conf required if you have an SI GPU? I don't have an SI card to test so I have no experience with this. What are the parameters that the Xorg.conf needs in order to boot? -Casey Hi Casey, This is the Xorg that makes the SI graphicscard users able to boot up fienix....
