VSIDO News & Announcements / Re: New VSIDO Debian ISO available
« on: February 05, 2013, 06:51:45 PM »
This decision was made simply to ease the burden of maintaining 3 builds when an update to the Liquorix and Siduction kernel can be done easily within SMXI

What about adding a script (with disclaimer of course) that will automagically run smxi as root at install?

@ Sector11

Conky is like a drug and I confess to TWAS posting last night.

Buggers!  I missed there is no edit button.

Sector11, I thought the Conky Masters had a setting where the Network is hidden unless the network is up. Maybe it was a lua script.... 

Here is the last network I saved in Pastebin on 28 Oct 11.

Sector11,  the light is abandoned.

The thread on #! I think was started by pvsage (that NARROWS it down, eh?  :P)

Heh, heh, heh  :D

jst_joe the orange was a mention on the sly of another beloved forum many of us began posting on, until we found something better.  ::)

I don't remember the commands to hide the network if you are not connected.....  ::)

I was actually going to use this abandoned Russiky island lamp for my background with arched Dock at bottom and Conky in white on the right side....

Don't you also miss the #! "Where in the World Thread" also?

Thanks for the welcome.

I realize I do not know where the Win7 disk is for the lappy, and I have not had time to play this week.

It is dual boot Win 7 and LinuxMintDebian.   

Do I risk destroying Win seeing if the partition manager will bump it all aside?    Nah, gonna chicken out and whip the spare 10GB drive in the lappy.    Looks like not until next week, as I have to earn some $$ this next few nights. 


Can we have Orange?

Some of you well remember me.   I had a 100% Linux Box running 'buntu and then LinuxMint and found #! was best for the laptop.  I was a conky addict...

Sometime almost a year ago, I did the unthinkable and installed Win 7 on the Desktop, and found it very difficult to exist as I could not sudo/cli in M$.  I needed some Win 7 experience for what I thought was going to be a long term support job at work.  Win7 is stable and on the laptop I am happy.   The desktop did not fully digest Win 7 and it appears I may need to consider a new box.  Little did I know that I would lose the job..... I now work 25 hours a week and fear for the future.  Enough of my woes.

I appreciated the work many* did on creating Conky/TINT and the most excellent work of VastOne on G-player and what is now Gmusicplayer.   The live disc I post this on is a fine piece of work.

The question remains as follows-

Is the 64 Bit AMD kernel the best for my Intel chip?   Did I dl the wrong iso?

* I dare not mention names to miss anyone but Sector11, MrPeachy, VastOne, Jedi and others come to mind first as those I appreciated.  if your ego is bent not seeing your name here, get over it.
