I don't have an issue with it.. Just to be sure, the VSIDO project is alive through this site and more than anything we offer Linux support to anyone needing it

I have the further development of VSIDO in hiatus as I am more weary than I used to be and there is no real solution for an installer any more

Perhaps I will pick it up again one day but right now I work too much

The review should focus on the site being a go to place for solutions IMO

Thanks RatMan.. I lost all the mods and added tools that were once on, but the content is all I really cared about as a resource for people looking to solve an issue

If you do see an error, just refresh the page a time or two and it should resolve itself

If anyone noticed today VSIDO.ORG has been down most of the day.. Turns out that decided it was time to retire php 7.x.. I have no issues with that except they somehow failed to communicate it and it caused me a shitload of issues

In the end I got it fixed through some god#*$&*#$& luck and it appears to be all right again

We shall see

Very Cool RatMan..  Your desktops always are top level..  8)

Is that one single tint2 panel-taskbar config/setup? I like it! Mind posting  the config? 

Also jgmenu is sharp, I am going to give it a good look too

Thanks... I tweaked it a bit more and like this better.. The GMB layout code is attatched

General Support / Kernel 5.14.01 and nVidia woes
« on: September 23, 2021, 07:38:26 PM »
This is already a solved issue but I am going to post it for anyone in the future for reference

Also ... It has been a while since I have done a How To or even been around.. I am still alive, still hoping for a different installer for VSIDO but also life happens and I love to golf... Cheers

I got back from a 2 week holiday with 2 of my sons, my daughter and my granddaughters up north to a massive update (obviously) and it included a new kernel jumping me from 5.10 to 5.14

I run nVidia latest drivers and didn't notice anything on the dkms build but honestly I was not really paying close attention... Upon reboot top that driver I was greeted with a failed to load start kernel module error and suspected it was a nVidia issue straight away.. This is how I solved it based on this nugget I found searching for a quick way to fix it

I started that kernel in repair mode which brings you to a spot to enter your root pw
I then used the following commands to start the network

(This was done a day later)

Code: [Select]
#ip link (it tells you what the card name is, in my case it was enp6s0)
# ip link set enp6s0 up

I then did the following:

Code: [Select]
# apt-get update
# apt-get dist-upgrade

Right away I noticed that the nVidia drivers had been updated and that a fix was already in place

All I had to do was apply the following to commit the kernel and new packages together

Code: [Select]
dpkg-reconfigure nvidia-kernel-dkms
I then just typed exit for a reboot (or ctrl alt del)

And booted to 5.140-1 perfectly

For those who live by the POIDH (Picture Or It Didn't Happen) creed

Runs as smooth as anything ever has IMO ... everything I want to work does

Golf game has never been better... I am striping the ball and making putts, beating anyone who is up to the challenge

I also walked 27 holes yesterday and got better as the day went on.. That may not sound like much but at 61, it is a task and I am feeling great walking 12 miles while doing something I love

What's up in your world RatMan?

That's great Gordon!

It's a python script that has not been maintained for years and a recent python update has killed it and it won't be fixed

Manually editing /home/user/.fluxbox/menu is the only way now to get it done

^ That looks like the view I had driving north to Wyoming or south down to Colorado Springs on I-25 when I lived in Denver

Stunning vistas
