Code: Select all

deb http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/DarkPlayer:/Pipelight/Debian_7.0/ ./
It told me that the command could not be found.

is that the full text of the command?

Re: need to fix grub after installing another distro

Give the commands (as root)
I have seen this reminder off and on from many other users.

I used to know how to assure that I was proceding as "root".

In this case, how would I know if I was giving a command as root, and how would I set this up to make sure that I was?

Thanks for the good info.

need to fix grub after installing another distro

I just got a Dell Inspiron 1501 that had no operating system on it. I partitioned the hard drive and installed SolydX - installed perfectly. Then I installed AVLinux on the next partition, and it installed a grub onto it's own partition, and that grub ignores the SolydX distro. In short, I am not gi...

Re: Netflix Support

I have spent WAY too much time trying to get NETFLIX to run in SolydK.

I am giving up for awhile. Maybe the SolydK team can chime in and/or come up with a solution.

First of all, the instructionos are pretty specific to whether you are using wheezy, or sneezy, or sleepy, or doc, etc. I ahve gotten so far and then had the termi...
