Re: how to mount drives within /home [resolved]

Sorry to reawaken an old thread but... I'm back. :shock: After some messing about that I'll not go into in much depth now I have just clean installed SolydK on to my workstation. Faced with some of the same issues as before I found this old thread to re-do my drives as before. One small snag and I'm...

Re: Install XFCE on SolydK

Thanks, I knew it would be simple, knowing the right thing to install to get the whole desktop was the tricky bit.

I know that SolydX has been customised some, will I end up with those tweaks or will I end up with a vanilla XFCE DE?

Re: [Solved]Update LibreOffice repositories SolydXK

I may be not understand something but I thought the point of SolydXK was stability, reliability and security. If people want cutting edge there are plenty of Distro's that offer that. I use SolydXK because I value stability, if I wanted cutting edge I would run Arch. I think that Debian compatibilit...

Re: Using far too much ram

Pen i formatted the output with <code> tags to improve readability. 667M isn't much specially if you consider that you have certainly additional services starting at start-up [dropbox for example is usually heavy on ram] Thanks, for the code tags, and yea I have dropbox starting. To be honest I cou...

Re: Clock wrong by an hour

We have a winner... My clock has now figured out that UTC (Greenwich Mean Time in old money) is not the same a BST.

Code: Select all

sudo dpkg-reconfigure tzdata 
This and a reboot and all is now well.

Re: Virtualbox issues

Thank you for your response, After a lot of Googling I managed to resolve the issue. I feel a little silly now. Here's the thing, after enabling VT-x in the BIOS you need to shut-down your PC rather than reboot. A quirk in many BIOS's result in the setting change not taking hold unless the system sh...

Re: Installer hangs on drive selection [Resolved]

I think part of the problem was a small issue with the installer and my own oversight. My system has more than one drive, the installer kept on putting the largest drive at the top. In my case the 1TB HDD even though it was sdb and the smaller 256GB SSD was sda. After selecting the SSD and sorting o...
