      @Caprea When checking out samba manager in control centre, please don’t start it before upgrading to the fixed version which has not made it by some hours into the ISOs:

      ———-
      Edit says: The above goes without saying for all other users of antiX 23.1 as well.

      Windows is like a submarine. Open a window and serious problems will start.

        First impressions of antiX 23.1 full runit from my 20 years old 32bit notebook, 1,7GHz single core, intel M CPU, 2 GiB RAM, Nvidia dedicated graphics (no shared memory): Works. Works out of the box. Works great and what is most important: Works fluent, even on this old as the rocks device.

        Nevertheless, some flaws.

        1.) Boot menu: String “press F1 for help” is not translated.
        2.) Boot menu: Complete antiX boot help screens are no longer localised, at least not in32 bit runit for German language.
        3.) Boot process screen blacks out on half way, the expected startup messages are missing. Still, after some time the desktop comes up fine.
        This was already an issue in antiX 23.0, and upgrading to a 6.x 32 bit default debian kernel had solved it for me. Have not checked this method on antiX 23.1 by now.

        4.) After desktop is up, no Volumeicon in tray. (while sound itself is fine, soundtest works)
        5.) Starting alsamixer from control centre: Window flashes by, no mixer.
        Calling alsamixer from console directly comes up with the following error message:

        $ alsamixer
        error: can not open mixer: host is down-

        After some checking it turned out, you have to go to control centre, section hardware, and activate pipewire (even when you don’t want or plan to use it on your device.) Hopefully it can stem the load from this manoeuvre. Then deactivate pipewire again. Only then alsamixer comes up and you can start volumeicon from console to have it on system tray.

        Looks as if there is an audio misconfiguration in the 32 bit ISOs, since they have pipewire disabled by default.

        Additional Usage hint: The pipewire switch works only properly, if no program accesses the soundcard while switching. This includes browsers like firefox as well, shut them down! Otherwise the sound device might be missing in pavucontrol, and you have no way to control volume.

        6.) Icons issue. antiX control centre again has no icon, even when it is actually present in an icon folder. Obviously this folder doesn’t register the icons as gtk named icons.
        Solution: move the icon control-centre-antiX.png from /usr/share/antix-papirus to /usr/share/icons/papirus-antix/48×48/apps folder, and immediately the icon is present in control centre window and tray.

        7.) Same goes for the six samba manager icons. Move them from /usr/share/antix-papirus to /usr/share/icons/papirus-antix/48×48/apps folder, then all antiX samba manager windows will not come up any longer with a poisonous Erlenmeyer bulb.

        8.) gksudo dialog comes still up not localised in German language. Checked the .mo file by decompiling it, and it is still the outdated 0.9.x version with merely two translatable strings in it.

        9.) antiX Accoustic Colours is the former version (long bar, not the two-liner); It has no translations. So, head for https://app.transifex.com/anticapitalista/antix-development/antix-acoustic-colours/ and fetch your language, msgfmt it and put it into your locale folder. (Translatable strings are identically in two-liner and bar version)

        10.) Easyeffects GUI comes up with a completely black window. (while the backend works fine)

        11.) Switching to console doesn’t work: Ctrl + Alt + F2 etc. freezes the screen, no mouse movement or keyboard accepted, but no console screen either (on 64 bit testing this has worked). Only Ctrl + Alt + F4 frees the frozen screen again.

        That was the bad tidings. Now the good ones:

        + Wlan connects immediately after entering the key.

        + Desktop comes up in proper resolution.

        + Touchpad works out of the box.

        + After updating the three script files for antiX Samba manager to the current version (please see posting above) it does its job as it is expected.

        + Clipboard switch in Control centre works.

        + The added tooltips in Live section and elsewhere are present and translated.

        + antiXradio works, even when coming up at first time start with a message about stations lists having been updated, which shouldn’t be there (it is suppressed on fresh install)

        + antiX-TV works. Hint for lowres users: If your stations happen to provide 50/60fps streams instead of 25/30 fps, just lower the bitrate in its settings to get still stutter free playback at lower CPU consumption. For this the TV stations are to blame, since they raised the framerates even for lowres streams, which clearly doesn’t make sense: Now you can’t play any longer the resolution your device would be capable of on a reasonable fps rate.

        + antiX Acoustic Colours works even on 32 bit. I have tested it with the Cathedral setting on this very 32 bit notebook, and it works stutter free, even without sparkling noises. But on cost of a CPU load of 72% to 77%. Nice to know it works, but that is nothing you can do on 32 bit single core for everyday usage.

        + IceWM manager works great. Looks really nice and tidy @PPC , saw it first time now.

        And here the hardware data from the 32 bit notebook I did the testing on:

          @Robin – I confirm the bugs.

          1. F1 help message is ‘implanted’ onto the image so does not change even when another language is chosen via F2.
          2. Help is in English for all iso except antiX-23.1-full editions. I goofed. Still, you are probably one of the few that actually reads the Help document.
          3. Must be related to the kernel – at least it boots to desktop (antiX-core and net 32 bit versions freeze in Virtualbox at ‘waiting for dev to be populated’).
          4 and 5 are related and only 32 full is affected.
          6, 7, 8 and 9 can be ‘fixed’with a package update
          10. Don’t know
          11. This is IMO the most serious issue and all 32 bit iso files appear to be affected. Must be a kernel issue I assume.

            1.) Boot menu: String “press F1 for help” is not translated.

            I also confirm this sad issue of the loss of translations of the Help menu for the “pt_BR” language. We worked hard on this translation. I hope it can be fixed in the next ISOs or edits.

            1.) Boot menu: String “press F1 for help” is not translated.

            Eu também confirmo esta triste questão da perda das traduções do menu da Ajuda para o idioma “pt_BR”. Nós trabalhamos bastante para esta tradução. Eu espero que possa ser corrigido nas próximas ISOs ou edições.

                @marcelocripe – which version are you referring to?

                Sorry, I forgot to inform you that it is the full 64-bit ISO of the SysVinit type.
                I completed the installation of antiX 23.1 full 64-bit SysVinit on a Positivo Unique 60 (Atom D425 Processor, 2 GB of RAM and Intel graphics card) and everything worked perfectly.
                Can I send you the translation of Meld’s “.desktop” file into the “pt_BR” language?
                The Meld menu is the only one that lacks the text “name[pt_BR]=Comparador de Arquivos Meld” for antiX 23.1 to have all menus translated.

                @marcelocripe – which version are you referring to?

                Perdão, eu me esqueci de informar que é a ISO full de 64 bits do tipo SysVinit.
                Eu conclui a instalação do antiX 23.1 full de 64 bits SysVinit em um Positivo Unique 60 (Processador Atom D425, 2 GB de memória RAM e placa de vídeo Intel) e tudo funcionou perfeitamente.
                Eu posso te enviar a tradução do arquivo “.desktop” do Meld para o idioma “pt_BR”?
                O menu do Meld é o único que falta ter o texto “name[pt_BR]=Comparador de Arquivos Meld” para o antiX 23.1 ter todos os menus traduzidos.

                    11.) Switching to console doesn’t work: Ctrl + Alt + F2 etc. freezes the screen, no mouse movement or keyboard accepted, but no console screen either (on 64 bit testing this has worked). Only Ctrl + Alt + F4 frees the frozen screen again.

                    11. This is IMO the most serious issue and all 32 bit iso files appear to be affected. Must be a kernel issue I assume.

                    I do not experience this issue as described. Ctrl-Alt-F2 and Ctrl-Alt-F3 do open console for me as expected and allow me to log in. Ctrl-Alt-F4 does return to the original desktop as expected.
                    This correct behavior I do experience on antiX 23.1 runit full ISO’s, both 32 bit and 64 bit. I have not tested Sysvinit ISO’s or runit other than full editions.

                      @all – could you test antiX-23.1-full 32 bit on real metal (live suffices) to see if you can switch to console: Ctrl + Alt + F2 etc.
                      It fails in Virtualbox (32 only, 64 bit works fine), but it does work on this laptop when booted live fromiso on real hardware.
                      Thanks

                        I take back what I said. I started the SysVinit antiX 23.1 full 64-bit ISO again and the translation of the Help menu is working. It is the SysVinit antiX 23.1 full 32-bit ISO that the translation of the Help menu is not working. I had made a mistake, I apologize for that.

                        I don’t know if I understood the meaning of the phrase “real metal”. What I did with the SysVinit antiX 23.1 full 32-bit ISO:

                        1 – I started with LiveUSB in graphical mode.
                        2 – I simultaneously pressed the Ctrl + Alt + F2 keys.
                        3 – The command line mode was displayed.
                        4 – I entered the username “root” (without the quotes) and pressed the Enter key.
                        5 – I entered the password “root” (without the quotes) and pressed the Enter key.
                        6 – I entered the command “startx” (without the quotes) and pressed the Enter key.
                        7 – Graphical mode as “root” has been successfully started on a computer.
                        8 – I repeated the procedure described above with the “demo” user and the “FX-dark” theme started successfully.
                        9 – I was able to freely switch between both users and still launch graphical mode with both users.

                        I hope this helps.

                        Eu retiro o que eu disse. Eu iniciei novamente a ISO do antiX 23.1 full de 64 bits SysVinit e a tradução do menu da Ajuda está funcionando sim. É a ISO do antiX 23.1 full de 32 bits SysVinit que a tradução do menu da Ajuda não está funcionando. Eu havia feito confusão, eu peço desculpas por isso.

                        Eu não sei se consegui compreender o significado da frase “real metal”. O que eu fiz com a ISO do antiX 23.1 full de 32 bits SysVinit:

                        1 – Iniciei com o dispositivo USB executável com o modo gráfico.
                        2 – Pressionei simultaneamente as teclas Ctrl + Alt + F2.
                        3 – O modo de linha de comando foi exibido.
                        4 – Inseri o nome de usuário “root” (sem as aspas) e pressionei a tecla Enter.
                        5 – Inseri a senha “root” (sem as aspas) e pressionei a tecla Enter.
                        6 – Inseri o comando “startx” (sem as aspas) e pressionei a tecla Enter.
                        7 – O modo gráfico como “root” foi iniciado com sucesso em um computador.
                        8 – Eu repeti o procedimento descrito acima com o usuário “demo” e o tema “FX-dark” foi iniciado com sucesso.
                        9 – Eu consegui alternar livremente com os dois usuários e ainda iniciar o modo gráfico com ambos os usuários.

                        Eu espero que isso ajude.

                          What I reported above was on reaal metal. I always test on real metal…

                          However both 32 bit and 64 bit I tested on a 64 bit hardware. No such issues.
                          I will test 32 bit ISO also on 32 bit hardware, if required…

                          Did it ever work in virtual space?

                            “However, when contrasted with a virtualized server environment, bare metal may imply a regular, non-virtual server that does include an OS.”

                            So when we’re talking about “bare” or “real”, we are referring to an installed system as opposed to a system running in a virtual machine environment.

                              Works as accepted here, 32bit runit base, no freezes.

                              3.) Boot process screen blacks out on half way, the expected startup messages are missing. Still, after some time the desktop comes up fine.

                              Same problem here, how long did you wait? I booted with xorg=safe finally.32bit live.

                              Another problem here 32bit runit base live, no volumeicon no sound .On base there is no switch to enable/disable pipewire in CC.Afaik there is no pipewire installed at all on 32bit, so I wonder why you have this switch on your system @Robin.
                              I’m going to install another kernel on the live stick,let’s see how things change.

                                Hello @Caprea,

                                no freezes.

                                What I have reported merely looks like a freeze, actually the PC is responsive. Probably all keyboard input goes to an invisible TTY. So, when switching back using Ctrl + Alt + F4 you can normally go on in GUI, actually nothing was frozen at all. You simply can’t see the console you are typing on, instead you see the temporary frozen GUI screen. Maybe it’s hardware related, This device is running on noveau driver here, which works perfectly fine for this prehistoric nvidia card in recent kernels.

                                so I wonder why you have this switch on your system @Robin.

                                Simply since I run “full” 🙂

                                how long did you wait?

                                I waited maybe 20 to 30 seconds.

                                Windows is like a submarine. Open a window and serious problems will start.

                                  Some people here may be surprised by the fact that someone so involved in contributing to antiX as me is not on the cutting edge of installing the latest version of our system. I’ve not yet tested the final “final” antiX 23.1. But I can offer some insights/ideas about the problems Robin reported and for the future:

                                  -From what I read, I guess that Robin not being able to ” Switch to console” on the 32bits version seem akin to the problem I usually have using antiX on my 64bitd Dell desktop: it refuses for some reason, to work with automatic log in, even with just automatic selection of the user at the login screen- I never saw that on any other computer I tested antiX in, that “antics” only happens on that particular piece of hardware. There are so possible mixes of hardware and software that eventually something will be problematic. In your particular 32 bits computer, it seems it was “switching consoles”.

                                  – On the Boot menu string “press F1 for help” not being translated: I think I commented on that before. Like anticapitalista says- that text is part of the image, it’s not something that can be edited. So the genius (I’m not being sarcastic, by the way) that created the boot menu either can add that string as a translatable string or we are stuck with what we have. It’s not ideal, but not the worst thing ever.

                                  On most of the problems Robin reported… I guess that they can be attributed to either small Dev mishaps (like the lack of translation for the boot help menus) or the lack of “feature freeze”. anticapitalista tries to include as many of the community suggestions as possible on the isos. Unfortunately, that sometimes may cause that scripts that where not given enough time to be tested, and eventual bugs to be found, can hop to the “final” iso. That seems to have happened, unfortunately, by a matter of some minutes, in the brilliant Samba GUI’s, now included in antiX. That’s why a “feature freeze” is a nice idea, it slows the adoption of new software, but it also makes sure that the software included in the final iso is as bug free as possible.
                                  If all goes well, in future antiX versions really are “multi-initsystem”, anticapitalista will have to create just half of the isos, so that will mean about half the work, so he will be less tired, and thus, less prone to making mistakes…

                                  That said, I can’t wait to test antiX 23.1 live… that will probably happen in the next couple of days, so I’ll report back on my feedback then.

                                  P.
