Video showing crash under 4.19.65 - look at 0.03 seconds

I can't find any error logs associated with this - any ideas?

Casey,

Great news! The MATE Terminal works with old Linux kernels (4.19 and lower) again! :-)

Cheers,

Repository Update
Fienix is now using a new software repository. When I made the old repository, it was really just a place to store add-on packages, and it didn't scale very well when I decided to create a whole new distro. The new repository should help me keep it organized and updated much easier. When you upgrade "fienix-customization-layer" your sources.list will automatically update to the new repositories, you do not need to do anything else.

Repository Addresses (for reference - your sources.list will update automatically)
deb http://fienix.servehttp.com/repos/fienix/soar/ soar-di main
deb http://fienix.servehttp.com/repos/fienix/soar/ soar-dh main
deb http://fienix.servehttp.com/repos/fienix/soar/ soar-cp main

Hi Casey,

Sometimes the avahi daemon needs a lot of system resources. This slow down your system performance. If you don't need it and your system is slow then set the following lines to "no" in the file /etc/avahi/avahi-daemon.conf.

nano /etc/avahi/avahi-daemon.conf

Code: Select all

use-ipv4=no
use-ipv6=no
I don't need the avahi daemon so I set these lines to "no".
