Re: Apt Autoremove problem

Sigh :mrgreen: You are the perfect candidate for a 100% synaptic user. Why you would switch back and forth between apt & synaptic? Synaptic will not let you screw up the way you did. Perusing the threads here leads me to believe that maybe a handful of posters have taken the time to acquaint the...

Re: Searching a specific about installing debian

I know, I know! But I'm not telling. :mrgreen: The fact that you don't know how to do what you want, screams 'Don't do it'.

Re: Lost a lot of files when I switched, what should i do to prevent this happening again?

I switched from windows 10 to debian a few months ago, backed up all relevant files to a flash drive, installed debian and then moved my files back... but when i look through, it seems like lots of files that were there before are now missing. is this due to the difference in file systems and what ...

Re: EDIT:Spectre/meltdownOT:Buggy Gui; i386 stable iso, insp

Yes, there is a way to get rid of spectre and meltdown.

Get rid of all your kernels where these sinister entities reside.

Oh...wait... No kernel, no operating system. :mrgreen:

Re: wireless N disappeared after update

###After a reboot the wireless N-network is visible again You have learned a valuable lesson. There is an old developers tale that you don't have to do a reboot when changes are made in linux.

Debian disrespect

This site shows disrespect for debian and especially the developers. Developers spend their lives, some without or very little $$ compensation, coding for the future so linux is easier to install, understand and maintain for the average person. Some on this forum seem to dwell in the past and would ...

Three answers and no one has a clue what the OP is asking.

Cups has updates quite often on my sid and I have never seen any "definitions" or anything else change.
