        More defaming misinforming rubbish from jamo.

        I have opened the notebook and I do not find any BIOS battery. I have also verified in other notebooks if the have a batterie … I have not fund one.
        The last batterie that I have seen in a notebook was … 20 years ago. I am very sorry that Xunziu 23 has no seen newer notebooks.

        I often do repair work following manufacturer service manuals whenever available.
        The newest Laptop I look after is 2 years old the oldest 8, all have a BIOS Battery.

        @jamo
        GIVE FACTS NOT FALLACY WHICH EXACT DELL MODEL ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT.
        Post Fakt nicht Fantasy. POST BETREFFENDE DELL MODELL UND REVISION
        I CAN CHECK THE SERVICE MANUAL FOR THAT MODEL. OR
        MIT DATEN KANN ICH AUF DER DELL WEBSITE FAKTEN FINDEN.

        https://www.dell.com/support/search/en-us#q=BIOS%20BATTERY&sort=relevancy&f:langFacet=%5Ben%5D

        I am being asked not to answer in this thread when the poster writes absolutely misleading malicious rubbish which
        includes my username.

          @rokytnji : Both commands come up with literally nothing (empty result, blank line) for me on antiX 23.1 full runit 64bit. Do I miss some important detail from your posting?

            I have opened the notebook and I do not find any BIOS battery. I have also verified in other notebooks if the have a batterie … I have not fund one. The last batterie that I have seen in a notebook was … 20 years ago.

            This is not a contradiction.
            Both of you are talking about what you have experienced personally. While, I actually can’t believe, that somebody who has seen disassembled notebooks for the last twenty years could have missed to come across these backup batteries. But who knows.

            There are actually some notebooks which don’t have a mainboard battery. Some manufacturers rely on the main rechargable (Li-Ion/Li-Po/LiFePo) battery for this (which might have occasionally a small extra accu built in for this task) or they have used a nonvoltalite ram for the writable parts of BIOS (which isn’t worth the effort, since you need the backup battery anyway to have the rtc moving while the device is powered down; then it is integrated into the rtc chip.) So having no battery is a rare condition, even these days. @Jamo there are actually some rare devices (mostly netbooks, not notebooks) which don’t have a backup battery. You may have such a device, we can’t know. But you might have easily overloocked it simply, since it doesn’t necessarily have to be a button cell. It might look like an ordinary chip (look for a Dallas chip e.g.), or it might look like an ordinary resistor or a tantal capacitor capsule, or just like a default capacitor. And yes, there are actually devices which have goldcaps instead of a battery, if their circuitry consumes that low amount of current that this is sufficient. But since all these alternative technologies to avoid the backup battery are expensive, manufacturers in most cases simply rely on the battery.

            As @Xunzi_23 has stated already: You have to look up this in the *service* manuals (not *user* manuals) or circuit diagram of your device to be sure it has actually no board battery, even when you can’t locate it by inspection.

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

                Member not modertor response.

                Whaaddya suggest. Delete personal opinion content that makes the OP look like a help vampire and needy ingrate? Ignorance. Which I confess to having and posting that online
                Does not bother me at all. This thread reeks of it.

                I figure it shows the OP’s mindset when it comes to using linux on his computer. He runs base because Windows is important for them. They paid for that.
                Then they take the gift horse. Against our warnings about not knowing the system and should install everything.
                By saying they wanna learn something and don’t mind.

                Then proceed to post how much things bother them. I find it humorous.
                Then post like like 2 year old who had their toy taken away.
                When they can’t grok base iso.

                My bad. I had to search to see what they were running

                  Hi Robin and rokytnji,

                  re: locate and updatedb and boot output.

                  Obviously, there are a lot of “boot” entries on anatiX23.1.

                  On my 22–>23 (updated daily, so similar to 23.1?),

                  I get a lot of output with the the locate boot command. I note that there are both a /usr/bin/locate and a /usr/bin/updatedb.

                  Robin, do you have these files on your install? If so, does the output change if you run sudo /usr/bin/updatedb and then locate boot?

                    @rokytnji commented: “Whaaddya suggest. Delete personal opinion content that makes the OP look like a help vampire and needy ingrate? Ignorance. Which I confess to having and posting that online
                    Does not bother me at all. This thread reeks of it.”

                    I’m inclined to agree. There is a lot of wordy stuff here, but nothing that currently violates forum policy, so I’m not taking action unless a policy is violated; I’m also not going to be reading much more today, so an evening or overnight moderator or admin will have to observe if anything else takes place here that deserves more attention than either “ignore comment” or “ban user…”

                      Correction:

                      I meant

                      /usr/bin/locate boot

                      P.S. I realize this is not centrally related to the OP. Just to Robin’s post that

                      locate boot

                      produced a blank output.

                        also OT, just reply on @stevesr0:

                        produced a blank output.

                        This was on the 64 bit desktop PC, running still a (remastered) 23.1-testing full runit ISO live.
                        So I’ve guessed this could be the reason, but:

                        Right now rechecked on 32 bit notebook, running the 23.1 full runit 32bit (final) ISO, virgin (not remastered) live.

                        Same result, no output after updating the db by the sudo updatedb command.

                        So I checked the exit status for both commands. (hint for Jamo: by entering echo $? immediately after executing each of them)

                        First command for updating returns 0 (zero), so the database was updated fine obviously.

                        Second lookup command returns 1 (one), even when exiting without any error message or any other console output, so one should assume from the latter it has done its work properly, even when the return status is 1 (one), since actually the 1 (one) can have two meanings here: Either the command actually failed on execution for some reason, OR, and that’s what I guess what applies here: nothing was found. (see man locate, section exit status for reference).

                        But when looking into @Rokytnji ‘s attachment, I can state: yes, all these stuff exists in my filesystem as well:

                        Attachments:
                        boot_command.zip

                        Locate can’t spot all this for some reason, even after applying the sudoed upatedb command.
                        So, is there possibly something wrong the way the locate command works in antiX 23.1, or is it just me applying the commands improperly, overlooking something?
                        Or is there an additional setup step needed I’ve missed?

                        I’m running on live, maybe that makes a difference. Now I have the vague impression of a déjà vu, but not sure, I believe there was something to be observed additionally when running live.

                        Any suggestions?

                        (btw, this is a good example for @Jamo how to put a request here in an unobtrusive manner, not making a kerfuffle, decrying wordy each and every petitesse crossing your way.)

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

                          Just checked on on this older installation of 23.1 full 64 bit iso install on the hard drive I pulled from the dell I dropped.
                          It is now running in the ibm t530 that just arrived in the mail. I have COUPLE of minutes till the repos fill up for upgrading.

                          I did the updatedb and locate boot boot commands on this installation and filled up terminal terminal with boot location entries
                          like in my previous post.

                              Hi @Rokytnji Many thanks for rechecking. I had expected this result, since you have tested on an installed antiX. Would you mind to repeat your testing on a *live* system another time?

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

                                No problem. I am tied up right now with 3 blink chargeing light. Then goes out. On this T530 that just came in. I’d hate to send it back. out

                                Edit: got lucky when I swapped out the broken screen T430 battery with this T530. Sigh of relief. Gonna swap out ram sticks next.
                                T430 has more GB of ram per stick. Just be patient while I play with this new toy. I like that the screen is bigger on this unit.
