No call.

Actually, there may be some backlash aimed at the Weather Channel and other news outlets over-hyping the destructive power of the storm and accentuating the doom-and-gloom aspect. Seen a couple editorials with that slant, hopefully it doesn't get out of hand and people stay focused on the relief efforts.

Nvidia is probably a safe guess then - based on what snap pointed out about mess. There were several packages for X and kernel that came in with that.

Installing Nvidia propietary driver used to be so easy. Now it's a royal pain in the ass.

nvidia would by mu first guess. You have the nvidia-dkms installed or go with nouveau?

I've had xorg issues before; maybe related to development files or something. I tend to get the dev files so I can compile something not in the debian repos. I think polybar is installed on the VSIDO box, that required a lot of X related files.

Problem seems to be nearly/completely resolved. Should be able to dist-upgrade after Irma blows through (but before Jose gets here!).

Showtime - the wind picked up about 7:00PM EST:



Check back in a couple days - assuming the power is up and running.

I'm on the call list for a FEMA contractor - albeit way down the list - I can see where my phone rings this time around.

Found this; couldn't find an actual Debian announcement - just the link to the change log in the article.

Xorg will still be available, which is good for those that don't want to use Gnome, KDE, Enlightenment, or sway.

There a big update to Xorg in the works? I'm getting the un-install all things X with the dist upgrade:



Guess I'll wait a couple days - let Irma go through as well, I suppose. Should make for a massive upgrade middle of next week.

spectrwm + emacs



The more I tinker with emacs the more I like it - need to get my head around some keybindings to exit gracefully though; getting hung up too often. Time to revisit the tutorial  8)
