Re: Strange colors on the screen during boot process

Short addition : The second time, nor the third time that I booted the installed SolydK64 I did not see any of the reported problems (strange colors, flashing lines and a quarter of the screen white while the rest was black).............:-) So I suppose it was a rather strange quirk somewhere in the...

Re: UP - 30/11/2013 [TESTING]

My installation of SolydK64 (nov. 2013 .iso) was a pristine one. There is only 1 history.log and 1 term.log (also in the .gz files), both dated Nov. 30-2013. Here's the history.log file, I only installed disk-manager after the dist-upgrade. The term.log file is (I think) too large to drop in here (8...

Re: UP - 30/11/2013 [TESTING]

Could it be that my installation of yesterday (29.11) of SolydK64 did already bring in these new packages here ? I'm a bit puzzled here. Nothing happens in Konsole as root after an apt-get update, followed by apt-get dist-upgrade: whiskey ko # apt-get update Hit http://packages.solydxk.com solydxk I...

Re: Strange colors on the screen during boot process

OK - I understand. I'm not bothered too much by this live-DVD booting problem, but the developer(s) should be - IMHO. I' ll look into it after installing on my test system. Is there an ' easy way' in SolydK to make a customized .iso ? (no plymouth installed, get splashy in). If not, then solving the...

Re: Strange colors on the screen during boot process

I booted the SolydK64 live DVD again (on the same laptop) and pressed (within the countdown period of 10 seconds) Enter. I selected the Boot without Plymouth option from the menu presented and pressed Enter. The same strange behaviour happened again. Does that rule out Plymouth as the offending agen...

Re: Strange colors on the screen during boot process

Maybe it's Plymouth, maybe not. I have not experienced it with recent Mints or Kubuntus (using Plymouth) in the last couple of years - on the same laptop. I've never seen this behaviour with distros that use splashy. So maybe it's Plymouth, but I'm not sure. Could it be the graphics framebuffer that...

Re: Strange colors on the screen during boot process

It doesn't really matter much. I'll boot the livedvd on my test machine later (not tonight) and will closely observe what happens. (it has a Radeon graphics card). My guess is I won't see the same " color mismatch" behaviour on that machine.... :-)
I'll let you know the outcome in this thread....

Re: Strange colors on the screen during boot process

I'll do so next time I boot up the live dvd on this laptop. [Intel CPU dual core T3200 - 2000 Mhz, Mobile Intel 965 Express Chipset family withIntel GMA 3100 Integrated graphics]. Don't think it is the Graphics card. It works flawlessly on all other linux livecd's/-dvd's I used over the last 3-4 yea...

Strange colors on screen during [live media] boot process

Just popped in the livedvd of SolydK64 2013.11 and booted it. By the way: I did check the md5sum before that. Very strange color settings happened on the screen (while in the boot-process; not afterwards). Something's not right there. Hope it's on the livedvd only.... Will install SolydK64 on my mai...

Hello....from the Netherlands

Hello all,

Name is Ko Bros, longtime linux user. Mostly debian-based, especially Mepis and antiX.
Just going to have a look 'n feel about SolydK64 (2013.11) as a new (to me) distro.

Again, hello and see you around.
