    Related to repo mirrors.

    skidoo linked to this file (differences between old and new /usr/sbin/localize-repo).
    The biggest difference is the pk repo no longer being used. This might mean all the pk entries must be removed.

    I am attaching the edited localize-repo file with all pk entries removed. I tested it and it works properly now.

    (tried to attach as .zip)

    Also, on Legacy Boot, F8 menu (save boot changes) selecting the legacy kernel doesn’t work (at least on my tests). Could anyone else check if this also happens to them?

    I see that (on my system) the F8 menu saves the changes to Grub menu, but the syslinux/isolinux doesn’t remember them.

    Hi @Xecure,
    I am trying to reproduce the above. Can you please go into a little bit more detail so I can try to reproduce? Thanks

    Hi @Xecure,

    Sorry. Forget it. I was forcing syslinux to artificially boot, thinking that Legacy_BIOS boot was still the same (it is still the same on VirtualBox), but christophe already pointed out that the GRUB boot replaces it in BIOS systems.

    Sorry for wasting anyone’s time.

    timezone issue should be fixed in next upgrade of apt-antix.
    Thanks Xecure.

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

    antiX with runit - leaner and meaner.

    Hi,
    I would like to report another positive test result for antiX-bullseye-b1-sysvinit with the 5.10.27 kernel.

    First, a background to understand why I am happy about the result. I have one old desktop that a friend gave me that has an HDMI output. It is an old Dell Studio with a core 2 processor. So it is about 10 years old. The HDMI out will give both great video and audio outputs. The modern TV has the HDMI input. So why not hook up that Dell to the family TV. The family can browse the internet, stream videos, etc., with the high quality of the HDMI. So that is what I did. I had antiX 19 on that Dell. Initially, I get the video to go through the HDMI, but not sound. So I installed pulseaudio and pavucontrol. Pavucontrol has an option called configuration where I can select HDMI sound/surround sound as the output. But I still can’t get the sound to work. I did some searching on the web. Turns out I have to
    sudo adduser $<username> audio
    every time I start the computer. So I had to figure out a way to automate it. There might be better solutions out there, but the following was what worked for me:

    1. create script file /home/<username>/hdmi.sh, which contains the line:
    
    adduser $<username> audio
    
    2. give root access and make it executable
    
    sudo chown root:root /home/<username>/hdmi.sh
    sudo chmod 700 /home/<username>/hdmi.sh
    
    3. set up sudo to allow hdmi.sh to execute without a password
    
    sudo visudo 
    
    #to open sudo permissions file: sudoers
    #around line 25, you'll see this line
    # %sudo ALL=(ALL:ALL) ALL
    #below that line, insert the following line
    
    <username> ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD: /home/<username>/hdmi.sh
    
    #save and exit text editor
    
    4. in startup, add
    
    #sudo adduser #<username> audio
    /home/<username>/hdmi.sh &
    
    #pulseaudio
    pulseaudio &
    

    It works, and our family has enjoyed countless hours with that Dell/TV combination.

    So, I wanted to see how antiX-bullseye-b1-sysvinit would do on that Dell with respect to the HDMI quality of the video and audio. Using a different hard drive, I did a fresh install of antiX-bullseye-b1-sysvinit with the 5.10.27 kernel. To my surprise, just running pulseaudio is enough for b1-sysvinit to produce the hdmi sound. The hdmi video is a given. I did not have to do any of the fancy script described above to get the sound to work. I just had to install pulseaudio and have it launch in startup. I did not have to use pavucontrol configuration to select the hdmi sound output. b1-sysvinit automatically selects it.

    I wanted to report this positive result.
    Thanks

    Great news and results for your testing, calciumsodium.

    I also had trouble getting the ALSA audio system to output sound to HDMI. I ended up creating tool for it here, to let us select and test the audio device using ALSA (no need for pulseaudio)

    Recently, I have tested pipewire on antiX-bullseye, which replaces the need for pulseaudio (and you can still manage the audio with pavucontrol, which is convenient). It uses less resources than pulseaudio, and (to me) seems to have better quality, volume and less lag. It is a few versions old compared to the current release but it has worked quite well for me.

    Thanks for all your testing.

    Hi @Xecure,

    Thank you for the referring me to this post. I think I saw it, but it went above my head at the time. After reading this post again, I think I have a machine to test pipewire. My family DO NOT want me to touch that Dell Studio hooked up to the family TV again. They are very happy with that B1-sysvinit OS setup. So that machine is off limits for me.

    During my testing of hdmi output with pulseaudio with B1-sysvinit, there is an HP machine that has a display port. I was also able to get both video and sound out of the displayport-to-hdmi to the family TV. Video was great, sound was not as good as from hdmi-to-hdmi in the Dell Studio. Hard to describe the sound quality. The sound is a little bit muffled. Therefore, I want to try pipewire on this HP machine. Maybe I can get that sound quality to be better from the displayport. Our family TV has two hdmi inputs (HDMI1 and HDMI2). The Dell Studio is connected to HDMI1. I will test the HP machine on HDMI2.

    It will take me a little bit of time to read up and learn about pipewire. I will give this a try using B1-sysvinit as the OS.

    EDIT: I went back and tested some more on the HP machine with the displayport-to-hdmi connection to our family TV. I put pulseaudio early on in startup before volumeicon. The sound now works great with the displayport-to-hdmi connection.

    Concerning previous post:

    >>>> VMPK not working

    <<< confirmed. My suggestion: grab the deb-src buster package (it’s the older, working version) and compile that on your bullseye system. If you need instruction how to do so, start a fresh topic. >>>

    VMPK is fixed now .
    Tested on 2 different hardwares.
    Thanks

    Useful tip, Display port to HDMI is getting a lot of use these days.

    sudo adduser $<username> audio, new to me usually putting user in group audio has been fine. Added to my workarounds collection 🙂
