Re: Upgrading to Bullseye Debian 11

Please explain exactly what you did so it may help someone else. I don't understand why you ran nvidia-settings. You can create a conf file with a simple text editor. Are you using that nvidia-fan-control-linux script from Github? Can you properly control your fan speed with it? Are your GPU tempera...

Re: Pinning kernel

Another method is to use /etc/apt/preferences or /etc/apt/preferences/anyname I believe the syntax would be: Package: linux-image-$whatever Pin: release * Pin-Priority: -1 To pin a specific version of a package, should not the priority be the highest possible ie. 1001? I run a Liquorix kernel and j...

No, apart from what I wrote in my last post. I never heard of it till today where it was mentioned to be needed to run that fan control script from Github. It is not a fan control by itself.
I found that info by searching the internet.

Re: Pinning kernel

Also have a look at man apt-hold. From the man-page (man apt-hold)... PREVENT CHANGES FOR A PACKAGE hold hold is used to mark a package as held back, which will prevent the package from being automatically installed, upgraded or removed. That might work if one holds the metapackage linux-image-amd6...

Re: Upgrading to Bullseye Debian 11

I got a few hits searching "linux gtx970 fan control" but none of it looks particularly simple and I'm not going to test it. Maybe this will help - https://github.com/vandabbin/nvidia-fan-control-linux On that page it says something about enabling coolbits by creating a file /etc/X11/xorg....

Re: Package update (Telegram 2.3)

Add buster-backports to your sources and install telegram-desktop from there. The buster version is positively ancient. Backports currently has v2.6.1 which is the same version I have in Bullseye and it's working fine. https://packages.debian.org/search?keywords=telegram-desktop And for future refer...

Re: Remove automatically installed dependency cycles

I wasn't sure what you meant by cycles in your first post, but it seems you mean dependencies. If you install a metapackage it will install a collection of dependencies. When you remove it, the dependencies don't get removed. So say you want to remove just one package dependency, first remove the me...

Re: RTL8723DE wi-fi adapter drops connection randomly

The part "firmware=N/A" sounds strange, but I am not really knowledgeable in this. Then I listed the modules and looked for the rtw modules: Do you have the package firmware-realtek installed? lsmod shows kernel driver modules ie. for the system. Firmware is a different thing, it is a tin...

I just had another look at your photos and now look ok. Maybe just Google Photos being a pain earlier.

I use it regularly without issue, but have bailed out maybe twice ever due to unsafe looking remove proposals.
