    Can anyone switch to ceni at all in antiX 21 a2? I am trying to compare network activity between connman and ceni, but /etc/resolvconf/run/resolv.conf doesn’t exist, so I cannot get ceni to connect to the internet. Any advice or workaround?

    Resolved: I just need to change the symlink to /run/resolvconf/resolv.conf (I will edit the script and make a merge request with the update tomorrow).

    Sorry for the inconvenience.

    I reinstalled a21a2 for testing. Noticed a couple of things –

    There is no Gparted menu entry. I was able to run Gparted from antiX Control Centre from the Live USB. But I can’t find it on the menus.

    The CC has a Network tab but the Network Assistant is on the Maintenance tab.

    Only thing on Drivers is Nvidia driver installer. Maybe that can be moved to Maintenance or Hardware?

    Nice to see a Software tab. Easier to understand.

    I think I remember the first entry on the LiveUSB boot was for the “Legacy” version but when I chose that I get the 5.10 kernel. Is that the Legacy or should it be 4.9 or 4.19?

    Thank you,

    I updated my installed instance of antiX 21 a2 yesterday. At the time the upgrade *appeared* to work fine, but upon booting it today it refused to enter graphical user mode, and messages indicated that several previously installed programs were failing (I *think* eulogind was of them), but I failed to capture the errors because I did not write them down by hand. Networking WAS still working so in theory the problems could have been manually fixed by reinstalling several packages.

    I rebooted into my USB antiX 21 a2 image, which was STILL working. One thing I tried while I was in it was the package installer. A few of the Web browsers that were not working previously are now working, including Chromium, Google Chrome, and Firefox, plus Palemoon, so that is very good news.

    I updated my USB image a couple of times and remastered it each time; that functionality seems to be working pretty well; I did not encounter any issues.

    After rebooting my new remastered USB image I reinstalled antiX 21 a2 over the failed image and I am using it successfully with Firefox now, along with many other programs.

    I’m sorry that I do not have better details to explain the problem I encountered; on the other hand, the improvements made over the past 2-3 days are significant and the Alpha images have made quite a bit of positive progress, which is evident in the new image that I am currently using. The image I have installed now (also updated on USB is working without any errors detected.

    In addition to post #57077 (that is, continuing in that situation), I am not able to change the kernel via live-kernel-updater. It says no new kernels, even after remasting. True, I did not install any; just trying to switch to 5.10.25. It said I could change initrd, which I did, thinking maybe that would use the 5.10.25 kernel. But uname -r shows 4.9.261 kernel still, after reboot.

    Using cli-aptiX, I installed 5.10.27 kernel. Remastered & changed to 5.10.27 kernel. Then rebooted; upgrade worked fine, on this kernel.

    unrelated to the above:

    Odd path ordering ~~ “games” recieves higher precedence than /usr/sbin

    $ echo $PATH
    /usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/local/games:/usr/games:/sbin:/usr/sbin

    ( begs an adjustment to the bottom 2 lines of /etc/skel/.profile )

    fluxbox (1.3.5-2)
    Wut?
    1.3.7 was available in antiX 19

    I’ll postpone sending a merge request, adding a fluxbox toolbar “Menu” button ~~ dunno whether 1.3.5 would choke on, or ignore, the buttonitem declaration.

    not specific to the alpha, but I just noticed:

    ~/.screenlayout

    ~/.jwmrc-numix-bevel
    ~/.jwmrc-numix-square
    ~/.jwmrc-papirus

    /usr/local/bin/autoscale-antix:11
    ### Create $HOME/.screenlayout directory if it doesn’t exist

    wishing these would be written into the ~/.config/ subdirectory instead of directly into $HOME

    Why is “gksu” involved?

    ps_mem.py excerpt:

    
    664.0 KiB + 304.0 KiB = 968.0 KiB	dconf-service
    900.0 KiB + 400.0 KiB =   1.3 MiB	at-spi-bus-launcher
    948.0 KiB + 451.0 KiB =   1.4 MiB	at-spi2-registryd

    ^—> Modern dbus autostarts these.

    The ~/.desktop-session/startup file for at least the “*-min” sessiontypes could kill these,
    and declaring “export NO_AT_BRIDGE=1” in the ~/.bashrc and ~/.profile would
    suppress the related “Warning:” nuisance messages.

    SYNOPSIS
           dconf-service
    
    DESCRIPTION
           The dconf-service program provides the ca.desrt.dconf name on the session
           or system bus. Users or administrators should never need to start the
           service, as it will be automatically started by dbus-daemon(1) whenever
           an application tries to write settings.
    
           Reading values from the dconf database does not involve the service; it
           is only needed for writes. The service is stateless and can exit freely
           at any time (and is therefore robust against crashes).
    
    SEE ALSO
           dconf(7), dbus-daemon(1), systemd(1)

    The “Password prompt (su/sudo)” item should be removed from ControlCenter.
    (applicable to both antiX 19, and the bullseye alpha)
    I have explained “why so” within previous topics posted to ‘development’ subforum.

    Confirmed – will take a look (with dave)

    Philosophers have interpreted the world in many ways; the point is to change it.

    antiX with runit - leaner and meaner.

    With German Key Keyboard setup on the a2 Runit debian keytable bug causes unknown key dead below macron boot messages,
    the bug is harmless but irritates new users.

    I found a suggested fix which is to add following to /usr/bin/ckbcomp

    my %xkbsym_table = add a newline 'dead_belowmacron' => 'fe68',

    This does not work as expected, still have error messages any input welcome.
