I run pure nouveau and also have most of the dev tools loaded as well

I have a GeForce GT730 and been running nouveau with no issues or nasty glitching. As nouveau is getting better and better I just might not even need the binary nvidia driver at all.

Best to hold off on GCC-7 until it becomes stable and the new default compiler for debian. Don't forget Sid gets temperamental at times :)

GCC-4.8 should become deprecated real soon so you might be able to ditch that one too if no packages in the ISO depend on it.

Yes Toshiba laptops are weird birds and I generally avoid them for using with Linux.

^ It's arrived in Sid.

I wasn't watching that close; but hot on the heels of the last kernel upgrade, I think.

Yes it has...and like yesterday I think.

GCC7 may soon become the Debian default and there needs to be one compiler version that rules them all as keeping around several versions of gcc can get old fast.

A good opportunity to see the lightweight WM's such as fluxbox, openbox and JWM get more traction.  These WM's are fast and light and stable without all the unnecessary frills.

VSIDO Changes / Re: VSIDO new linstaller Discussion
« on: May 29, 2017, 12:29:45 AM »
If you elect to change the root pw from the installer, it will fail as it is designed to work with sudo enabled.  I would hear more about su-to-root as a possible replacement specific to vsido-welcome needs (and anything/everything else related to sudo)

Yeah, my fault. Rushing and not reading everything. I always use different passwords for root and users. I asummed on the fly it was just that, setting a root pasword instead of disabling sudo.

I don't like the current (rather global) tendency of comodity at the cost of security/privacy. In the case of sudo and Linux, enabling sudo for everything even without a password. I prefer to allow sudo to just logout and shutdown passwordless. The rest is in charge of su-to-root set as su. I totally favor su-to-root into the welcome script.

PS, if the root password remains unchanged and left as live default ie; vsido. IMHO, a warning in the installer should be needed. Just in case.

To me, I use sudo only for my main user account. Other accounts I create on my system won't necessarily be set up with sudo access. I do set sudo to prompt for password while letting shutdown/reboot be the only operations that can be done w/o any password via sudo.

Why aare the GTK3 devs breaking things that have worked well!!!!???!!!

Because their "we only care about Gnome, f*** the rest" attitude.

That sure is the wrong attitude for the GNOME devs to have, which sounds much like Microsoft  :o

I saw that roxterm has been removed from Debian...sad to see it go. Haven't seen a decent terminal like roxterm, and the tabs are great.

pcmanfm-qt - Qt port of pcmanfm - I have never tried this, and not recommending it for vsido inclusion; just tossing it out there for y'all.

That would be something to consider as well in event the GTK build ever gets abandoned as GTK3 right now is a bit of a mess.

Muhammad Ali was the one who's brought boxing to the forefront...he will be missed  :'(

Also that picture would make a fine wallpaper :)
