Re: on lenovo debian,1 pixel vertical white line at grub unlock disk screen.

I can not help with NVME as I have a MBR SSD. ??? I realize you now have a screenshot of a virtual machine, host arch based. Does this pixel thingee occur on real hardware? OP said *screenshots are examples from www* so not from their actual machine. We appreciate your help and enthusiasm but pleas...

Re: Debian 12 or 13 available, or that is "sid"??

$ sudo passwd root will set a root password... Indeed it will. The passwd command defaults to root so it's not necessary to specify "root". It also can be used to set any other user's password so then the user must be specified eg. sudo passwd kermitthefrog will set password for user &quo...

Why do you want to install a new kernel? Is something not working with the 5.10 kernel?

Re: Issue finding pgp signing key for Debian 11

I did this yesterday for the first time ever. I found the Debian wiki page to be a bit light on instructions but the procedure is trivially easy and described well on this page - How to Verify Authenticity of Linux Software with Digital Signatures

Root needs root password, sudo needs user password. Did you set a root password during install? If you didn't but have sudo working you can set one with

Code: Select all

What is "dame folder"?
Do you dual boot with Windows? Disable "Fast Startup" in Windows. It leaves NTFS drives in a kind of hibernation state which is read-only for Linux.

Re: No sound devices available

finally, I disagree that your reason for not trying a different kernel. A more recent kernel, even tho it might look too fancy for you should not be eliminated. That is, if you get sound purely by using a more recent kernel....you can always recompile it to make it lighter. Does that make sense? An...

Re: Dead motherboard? 2nd opinion

Sounds dead. If you have any peripherals attached try removing everything except RAM and test.
Surely it is covered by warranty if only 7 months old. I had one years ago that died 2 weeks after the 1 year warranty expired! :|

Re: Bonkers Gnome

@NFT5 Nvidia driver on my desktop does add several hundred MB but not nearly as much as yours. My lowly Yoga 11e with intel graphics is much lighter. Plasma seems just as fast on both though.

Re: Bonkers Gnome

if you want a shiny, configurable desktop that adapts to your workflow rather than the other way around, you use Plasma. True. Provided you have a computer that has the grunt to run it. KDE being a heavyweight distro is old news. Plasma 5 on my laptop boots to a bit under 500MB which is about the s...

Re: [HOWTO] Debian 11 (sid) with Gnome 40

What I meant by "please fix it" is regarding the title. It should be something like "Upgrade Bullseye to Sid and install Gnome 40". Once you change the sources and upgrade it is no longer Debian 11 Bullseye. The only issue with your sources edit is you left out non-free which is ...

You may get more help with Pipewire at Linux Musicians forum.
