The site lives for one more year

VSIDO News & Announcements / The end of the VSIDO era

I want to thank you all who stuck with this project for as long as you have..

By the end of day tomorrow, I anticipate this site will no longer exist as I have simply ran out of funds to even afford to pay a 70 dollar annual fee

I may try to run the site from my home with DDS .. not sure yet, but since there is so little traffic I am not sure anyone would notice

I do have it all backed up, the sad part is that it has always been a resource for solutions and honestly that is all I ever wanted

Cheers to you all .. I can always be reached at vastone at the gmail com

sudo apt install gnome-themes-standard should fix the issue

A python update about a week ago killed the editor along with several other apps.. Puddletag was one of them but it recently corrected on further updates.. I would be patient and perhaps it might correct itself with further updates. You could also just edit /home/username/.fluxbox/menu and do it all manually

The big one that is gone for me is Medit.. It too is gone now

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
