I'm really not sure yet RatMan... That link is about all there is and I happened across it only by chance on the GMB IRC channel today... It for sure is not being advertised yet

Everything works in it.. It loads all the original layouts and all of the plugins work, I think I the only thing I had to make sure of was that libgtk3-perl was installed

For anyone who does load it and if you have a large library, it will take approximately 18-20 minutes (or more) as it is hardwriting your database after the first scan.. Just an FYI, it only happens after the initial scan

It has been far too long since I have posted but with a GTK3 version of GMB working I had to showcase it

Still VSIDO and Fluxbox ... Holler if you have questions

Thanks Jed... I do appreciate that

I'll give you a riddle I share every 4 years...

How can I turn 60 today and 15 tomorrow?  A slight leap for sure

Every non leap year I celebrate on the 28th

The only change through so many years is now I have to use Quod Libet instead of GMB

Last of 2019

Noooooooooo! Hopefully, "VSIDO DOA" is only a temporary inconvenience and can be sparked back into life! :)

Oz.. with Winter approaching and my golf season wrapping up, I will dedicate all my time and efforts to your DIY and try to build VSIDO  the way you build Star .. It is something I am really looking forward to

Wow, a blast from my past...

Background.. Sadly GMB is dying.. The latest Perl updates have effectively killed it and the dev seems to be permanently MIA

So after an exhausting search and finding Linux/FOSS still sucks when it comes to a decent music app, I was encouraged to give QuodLibet a look and am now using it

Of course I needed to find a way to get it to the desktop and dusted off an old old old How To I wrote years ago on using Conky and music apps

Low and behold QuodLibet was there

Side note .. my MIA is due to a non functioning installer that has left VSIDO DOA

Just as an FYI to anyone.. Ceni must be run as root in a live-CD session too

The root pw on the VSIDO ISO is vsido

Glad to hear you got your data back Snap... That's what this is all about

The tools on the VSIDO ISO has saved my ass many many times

  • Updated VSIDO to latest Debian SID kernel – 4.19.0-5-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 4.19.37-1 (2019-05-05)
  • Updated all applications to the latest SID levels

All changes can be seen and discussed in the VSIDO Change sub forum

All files and torrents can be downloaded from the VSIDO Download page


The x64 is installing flawlessly (though still a delay during the bootloader installation)
The x64_uEFI installer is not seeing the
Code: [Select]
even though it is clearly there

I also confirmed that the filesystem.squash is there by using the old installer and succeeding..

However, I could not use the menu driven installer (yad based) because it could not see the (null)dev/sda1 as a device or as a block device

I ran the non gui installer version of it and it installed fine..

Is it possible that the linstaller updates I applied failed on this build?

I can also confirm that the

Code: [Select]
Device /dev/sda1 not initialized in udev database even after waiting 1000000 microseconds

error is on the non uEFI version too

It is almost as if udev is broken because it cannot seem to locate any of its own settings and devices

Hello filip and thank you for stopping in to assist

The grub delay is in the uEFI ISO (It is the only one functional right now)

This is an image of me logged into the latest ISO (26th but it has the same failure). You can see the properties and the actual location within the file manager that shows that

Code: [Select]
is there and in the correct place.. I checked this immediately when this happened


During the new install, I used the legacy BIOS iso (uEFI iso on the first one) and the installer kept crashing - 3 tries. Crashes at the end of the disk partioning section, or right afterwards when it's suppose to start uncompressing the image.

This is the error log from the installer

This feels like I have missed something very basic and I am hoping @filip can see what I am missing

This has been confirmed on a new ISO build from today


Just a cut/paste really, of what is installed and what is not during the vsido-welcome...

cups cups-pdf system-config-printer printer-driver-hpijs ;  installed from vsido-welcome

openjdk-6-jre icedtea6-plugin ; does not install (i think java is up to 8? and icedtea6 is also a higher ver now)

libreoffice libreoffice-gtk ; should be libreoffice-gtk2 now or libreoffice-gnome?  IMO your better off removing this option.  Easily installs from apt-get.

git git-gui git-cvs git-svn git-email mercurial subversion subversion-tools bzr bzrtools cvs thunar-vcs-plugin geany version control tools ; installed from vsido-welcome

openssh-server ; installed from vsido-welcome

apache2 mysql-server php5 php-pear php5-gd php5-mysql php5-imagick php5-curl curl phpmyadmin rsync cronolog ; none of the LAMP stack part installs
E: Package 'php5' has no installation candidate
E: Package 'php5-gd' has no installation candidate
E: Package 'php5-mysql' has no installation candidate
E: Package 'php5-imagick' has no installation candidate
E: Package 'php5-curl' has no installation candidate
and so on etc...

build-essential debhelper cdbs dh-make diffutils patch gnupg fakeroot lintian devscripts dpatch dput quilt zenity clipit bashburn keepassx numlockx ; installed from vsido-welcome

gimp inkscape mtpaint shotwell darktable rawtherapee ; gimp does not install because gcolor2 is not available. remove it and the rest will install just fine.

Great information jedi.. When I can relax a little more I will work to update the vsido-welcome.. I need a rainy quiet weekend


I love the if_up in conky.. I use it for gmail like this

Code: [Select]
${if_up eth0} ${color 7D8C93}${voffset 5}VastOne  - ${execpi 25 python ~/ your_login your_pw 3}${endif}
It is a near instant notifier I have in place that tells me the network or internet has shit the bed
