Re: Use HTTPS

@ NewHere very insightful thought regarding wifi - in my opinion anyways. With every new iteration of hardware there appears to be a SERIOUS lack of attention to personal security. ie: How may ways does your hardware connect?

Re: Compiling the rt2870 driver for chipset

Debian is moving away from building as root

you might want to try changing the build env using fakeroot or fuse,
if that applies to puppy's ramdisk.

Re: failed upgrade stretch -> testing/buster

a lot of times you can work around issues like that using a different install order. above probably sounds like jibberish to anyone who hasn't done it... ie: # uninstall vdpau-va-driver (if you think that is offending packages) # install mesa-va-drivers or mesa-vdpau-drivers or mesa-vulkan-drivers (...

Re: how to slow down SATA drive to 1.5Gb/s ?

The server had a WD10EACS drive with a jumper to slow it to 1.5Gbps. This worked. Now it has a Seagate st2000dm001 which I cannot slow to 1.5Gbps and so it doesn't work well. I think it's because it isn't a "real" SATA port but instead is a PATA / SATA bridge and it only likes SATA versio...

I do like that in Buster the /usr and /lib trees have been simplified. Perhaps that can be expanded to allow for more interaction with other platforms. Can you easily elaborate on your reasons why you like the USR MERGE concept? I say easily here because there are a lot of other posts with clues I ...

an easy way (well easy for me anyways) run a live Debian 9 or install another Debian 9 on an empty partition and see if the same issue show up on either or both the machines in question before you add the recombiled packages to the new install
