Conky / Re: Simple conky clock and network interface

Action in the Conky thread!  I love it... :)

@PackRat, thanks for the link.  He's got some pretty awesome work!  I might switch back to the lighter side...

By the way PackRat, beautiful scrot!  I'd love to have the pic of the wallpaper...   :-X

that's the step I forgot; blacklisting the nouveau-dkms; Step #7 in this nvidia How To.

Now have VSIDO all tidied up using nvidia-legacy driver.  ;D

Wow.  Thanks for the link, (I wish I didn't need links like these) the conky which is already in use  ;D and everything else you do!  Thanks for the onscreen email back as well VastOne!   ;D

Borked it trying to install nvidia drivers (the more things change, the more the stay the same), issue with the initramfs-tools again. System still booted and ran, but I hate that error message during upgrades so did a new clean install. Will stick with nouveau since I won't be gaming on this computer.

Hey PackRat, had the same issues with Nvidia myself for the last week.  Anyway, finally got it to install and work properly.  I had to blacklist nouveau right from grub.  I think part of my issue was using my own compiled kernel.  On the new install getting rid of the nouveau driver worked for me.  I have, dare I say, newish hardware, a GTX 980M.  There are a lot of commands you can use after the .run file such as --path-to-kernel that totally broke my system a couple of times.

Good grief, looking at that,  :o ^^  :o I don't want to read it either.

It's the frigging book edition of, "My uEFI install went fine".   ???

The uEFI live boot went perfectly.  I did not even have to go into bios to get it to see the liveUSB! Straight to grub it went!  Default booted to the first selection, no problems or errors seen during the boot, ran (C)ceni, then installed.  (I was a little disappointed to not see 'efibootmgr' installed on the live media.)  Speaking as a mobile VSIDO user (2 laptops) it is nice to see some sort of indicator that your wireless is connected.  Is wicd still maintained?  Or is there another way to see at a glance if the connection is alive while in the fluxbox GUI?

Setup a '/' a '/home' and a '/boot/efi' from the installer. 2 out of those three partitions already existed.  The '/' I created using the installers disk tools, chose a current and already existing/used/goto '/home' and a currently existing and working '/boot/efi'.  So the disk tools (manual Geeks Paradise? choice in the installer) worked fine for me.  I never opened Gparted, before or after the install.  Got the long pause during the bootloader install which I expected, it completed (i did not see errors because i used the menu selection to install) and i rebooted.

On reboot the regular boot occured without seeing the newly installed VSIDO as I knew it would not.  Logged into my regular goto, update-grub, reboot, voila, it is now in the grub menu of course, into the new install, everything is beautiful not to steal song lyrics or anything.  So nice to leave chroot in the dust!  --BIND this!

I notice on reboot that the first time I run a root task as my user in terminal, I still have to use the vsido live password.  After I've used vsido as the pw, mine then works after that as well as roots.  Just thought it weird enough to mention.  I do a passwd change on both after the install anyway.  All of this brought to you on real metal, a MSI Laptop.

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

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.

Installed no issues at all.  Same with the stall at the grub part of the installer.  Installed fine anyway.  Rebooted, the new install is not in the current grub menu of course, logged into my goto and updated grub.  Instantly recognized the newly installed VSIDO, no errors on update-grub.  Rebooted, logged into new install ran ceni (what an asshole, ceni all along, now Cen?) setup the wifi, and came here to type in this update...  BRB

Or to just talk to myself for a while!  Some of my best  :D conversations have been with myself  ???  Anywho, I'm seriously considering totally moving my computing to USB.  This has been a truly amazing 18 hours for sure.  Going to post some scrots here of my fun.

fdisk -l


Disk Manager (?)


Because I can post scrots here?


Gparted mysteriously showing labels and no labels...

 ???  I will try to post later with some updated info.  Not any fixes per se, but perhaps enough info that someone smarter than me can interpret.  Give me a couple of hours and I'll try to have it all posted...   ???

Also, I am currently booted into a liveUSB session that is curently 'pretending' to be my goto lappy. :)  I am booted up on metal using the 20Mar2019 ISO image.  Default boot no changes to grub cmd line.  So far a seemingly error free boot, and now at aprx. 17 hours of uptime, pretty confident in the 'state' of the machine.

I'll check back here for info, advice, or cake.

Yeah but look at those temps.  A third higher than they should be.  Normal runs around 32C.  So it's not going to last I imagine.

Still no Earth in site.  At least there is still VSIDO to keep me sane...

Also, on my dual boot systems where Windows occupies /dev/sda, the installer has never (5+ installs) written grub to /dev/sdb or /dev/sdc. I always have to reboot and chroot into the system to install grub.

@vastone - in the other thread, you were saying the fstab was blank/incomplete? I interpreted that as an install of the new 2019 build went to completion but an fstab wasn't created. Did you attempt to chroot into the install and attempt to manually create an fstab, or check the partition layout to verify they were created?


So recently, (Last May) this MSI lappy went to the wife and a brand new (almost $200) Win 10 Pro install on it.  Now it is mine again.  A month ago I did a dual boot as PackRat says above with the same results though a different solution.  I also Installed Mint in a different location on the same NVMe drive.  This was and is how I am booting into VSIDO currently.  The Mint install uses the Ubuntu UEFI grub2 installer.  I'm seriously lazy these days and just haven't done the chroot exercise to switch Grub to this (my VSIDO goto) /dev/somewhere/blah.  All that to say this, last year when the last ISO's were being released, wasn't there an ongoing issue with this then?  A Debian thing?

I think part of this issue is the gpt partitioned disks.  Is the installer recognizing the 'gpt' partitioning if it is already 'gpt'?  Also, the same holds for the m.2 PCIe SSD's.  Probably way tmi.  Sorry.  All I know is, I have VSIDO back full time!

Nice to see some discussion going on for sure!  Hope you are all doing well...
