Last post by duststuff - April 02, 2024, 02:54:39 AM
I have had the same experience on Sparky 7.x, but I haven't paid attention to whether a kernel update was involved or not. Other distros I've used will prompt for a restart if there's a kernel update. It could be that Sparky doesn't need this, or else the software update program doesn't think the prompt is necessary, not sure which. I guess you could also check if the software update program has any settings / configuration related to this in case you want to change the behavior. For my use cases, I usually shut down at least once a day, so this isn't really an issue for me, so I hadn't taken the time to look into what's happening and why.

System upgrading / Restarting after an upgrade
Last post by grahamperrin - April 01, 2024, 07:15:43 PM
After installing from sparkylinux-2024.02-x86_64-kde.iso I accepted a YAD invitation to upgrade. Pictured: 6.6.0-1 (the kernel, I guess), 5.6.1+really5.4.5-1 (CVE-related), and so on.

After closure of the SparkyTerminal window, OK YAD.

No prompt to restart the operating system, did I overlook something?

First impression: delighted to find known issues promoted (realism; avoid disappointment).

Second impression: disappointed by failure of the first button that I clicked in the welcome dialogue – Known issues.

I took around twenty-four screenshots. I don't intend to flood the forum, alongside my brief introduction :-) so for now, just one:



QuoteI remember fun with defragging around twenty years ago; Windows 7

It's a flippant comment ;-) ... the general thought is to be concise, and not waste space with redundant or obscure comparisons.

Introduction / Ex-AppleSeed, FreeBSD Project ...
Last post by grahamperrin - April 01, 2024, 09:14:20 AM
Briefly (I might flesh this out later):

  • I used, and loved, Apple stuff for around twenty years
  • switched to FreeBSD-based systems maybe a decade ago
  • installed Sparky (rolling) today in VirtualBox on fast-moving FreeBSD 15.0-CURRENT
  • chose Sparky primarily because I genuinely can not recall the name of my previously preferred distro with Plasma, secondarily because it was recently reviewed by Liam Proven

– without the review, I might never have known of the existence of Sparky.

Please take the standard Debian text installer which is accessible with console speech and modify it with Sparky Linux repositories and package lists.

Blind people need Sparkylinux.

Quote from: duststuff on March 28, 2024, 07:39:20 AMDon't have much experience with this, so can't help you much with details. If you haven't done so already, the place I would probably start is searching this forum using one or more keywords related to your graphics hardware to see if anyone else has already encountered / solved this problem. (I guess it's always possible keywords related to the make / model of your laptop may also be useful / necessary.) Then you could do the same thing with Debian resources (see their website for documentation, wiki, etc.) and/or Debian-related forums. (Maybe even any Linux-related forums?) You do want to be aware of the dates of any related posts you see -- if they're pretty old, there's always a chance that part/all of them are not relevant anymore. You'll probably also want to take pretty detailed notes of your attempt to resolve this, so you can approach it more systematically. And putting some time into figuring out how to get possibly helpful input from terminal output and/or log files might also point you in the right direction on some aspects of this. This could turn out to be time-consuming, frustrating, and (on the positive side) an opportunity to learn, but I'm guessing there's a decent chance a fix or workaround can be found. Hopefully there are some nvidia users who can also chime in with more details perhaps.

Yeah already searched the best I could. I have absolutely no clue.

Hardware / SOLVED [KDE Version] How to In...
Last post by ENTPRESTIGIOUS - March 28, 2024, 07:01:38 AM
I am not really sure on how to install nvidia drivers and enable 3d acceleration. I have a GTX 1650 Max-Q. I did some stuff with nvidia-detect and installed the 470 drivers. And then I got carried away and installed one that was told from a Debian documentation. nvidia-smi works but I remember using a command similar to vainfo and my GPU didn't show up.

Someone I know told me that I was installing it wrong and that I should install it based on the desktop environment. They also told me about nvidia-vaapi-driver, which I did manage to install but I had to force-overwrite a file due to conflicts but didn't really configure it because I don't use Firefox.

But yeah it's just a total mess. I don't know if I installed it properly and I have no clue how to enable GPU 3d acceleration on Opera/Chrome. The fact that my CPU is going crazy whenever I do something on browser is driving me nuts. Yes, graphics acceleration is enabled (by default btw).
