Re: [Solved] Debian package search engine gone on firefox 78

Several months, and versions later - have you been able to restore a debian package search option to firefox's options?

I too noticed it missing. I still have "search debian man pages" but can not get or find a way to add an option to install a package search.

You're right the man page explain how/what the command does - that's it. Not necessarily how or why to use it. Debian does have an extensive documentation, - https://www.debian.org/doc//manuals/debian-handbook/index.en.html "Debian 10 The Debian Administrator's Handbook Debian Buster from Disco...

Re: new kernel 5.6 and I cannot boot, but I could on 5.3

I am 100% sure dist-upgrade is correct on debian. (but very dangerous on Ubuntu if you have experience there). If dist-upgrade breaks your debian, then you did not follow the anti franken debian best practices. run man apt-get Yes, I read the man page, where it says it can add new and remove some. ...

Re: new kernel 5.6 and I cannot boot, but I could on 5.3

If you're running stable... and want to keep things stable isn't "best practice" apt get upgrade / apt-get upgrade ? I think you mean # apt-get update && apt-get upgrade First post says they did dist-upgrade ? Suggest they used apt-get (dated). I was showing examples for either at...

Because apt full-upgrade / apt-get dist-upgrade, not only upgrades but installs new and it may remove some. note: install new is not upgrade already installed.

This is really the "right" way to do thing (I suppose).
While we're on cron jobs, depending on the complexity or simplicity of task there's als0 @reboot in place of time and day specs in crontab.
