Hello everyone my name is Chip.

I've been using Linux and other Unix like operating systems. I remember the first distribution that I used was pre-Red Hat enterprise Linux Red Hat back in the early to mid 2000s. I can also remember suffering threw having to be the "newbie" on the user forums of the distribution that I was using that week. I'll tell you that I did a whole heck of a lot of distribution hopping. I also remember that I took the hard and high road of starting my Linux journey by diving directly into the nuances of configuring a Samba file server which a coupled with the cups print server and to top that off I threw in the sshd so I could sit up in my bedroom and manage the server.

Hi Pavroo,

I was wondering if Sparkylinux 7.1 will be updated like Debian 12.2 to Sparkylinux 7.2 in the next few days.

Thank you in advance.

Hi Corsair,

The error you're  now getting is no big deal ==> no need to reinstall the whole system.
Just pay some attention to this :#: not found

Hello , i was searching for a light debian distro to set me free from kali and parrot os.
I did try a lot of distro but no success until i installed sparkylinux.
i have easyly installed:
Quotesudo apt update
sudo apt upgrade
sudo apt install linux-headers-$(uname -r)
sudo apt install locate
sudo apt install build-essential
sudo apt install wget
sudo apt install python3-magic
sudo apt install freerdp2-x11
sudo apt install nmap
sudo apt install dirb
sudo dpkg -i gobuster_3.6.0-1_amd64.deb
sudo dpkg -i sqlmap_1.7.2-1_all.deb
sudo apt install ruby
sudo apt install gem
sudo apt instal ruby-dev
sudo gem install evil-winrm
sudo gem install wpscan
sudo apt install dos2unix
sudo apt install hydra
sudo apt install medusa
sudo apt install nfs-common
sudo apt install smbclient
sudo apt install samba
sudo apt install ssh
sudo apt install ftp
sudo apt install sshuttle
sudo apt install tcpdump
sudo apt install wireshark
sudo apt install cherrytree
sudo apt install chisel
sudo apt install openvpn
sudo apt install wine
sudo apt install smbclient python3-ldap3 python3-yaml python3-impacket
sudo apt install git build-essential
sudo apt install nikto
sudo apt install steghide
sudo apt install exiftool
sudo apt install binwalk
sudo apt install hashcat
sudo dpkg -i metasploit-framework_6.3.38+20231006102633~1rapid7-1_amd64.deb .....

everything work very well.and it is VERY STABLE.
I think it can be a good idea to make a cyber security version because this way it will be easy to update tools and it is really stable !

I installed Sparky Linux 7.1 (Mate DE, I think) onto my 8 year old laptop last night. All seemed to go well and it booted up fine. However, today when I booted it up, the Applications section of the Menu is appearing as empty. Installed apps are not being displayed there. I tried to manually create a new menu and selected all the apps to be displayed in the Applications section, but it just shows up as empty. When I click on the Favorites tab, some of the installed apps show up, but the Applications tab remains empty.

Not even sure where to begin troubleshooting this issue since I am new to Linux-based operating systems.

Hi all,

In May I encounter the same problem and solved it - because of pavroo.
This time i tried the same solution,
add GRUB_DISABLE_OS_PROBER=false at the end of /etc/default/grub file
and then sudo update-grub

but now i have an error
/usr/sbin/grub-mkconfig: 1: /etc/default/grub: �#: not found

I'd prefer not to have to reinstall the system...

Thank you
