New Users / Re: Aditional drivers problem (Solved)

Hi rayzor,

might help fix your issue.

The Poster isnt saying he is having an "issue" that needs fixing, He is just confused by the message in "additional drivers".

So in my personal opinion, if he is connecting to the ouside world with no problems, he does not need to do anything here.

All that needs to be done is nothing, just leave it to say "do not use this device".

No problem, No fix. He just needed an answer to avoid confusion so he does not mess up his puter, lol.

Regards,

The Omen

@manyroads....I agree with you.. infact in my tests of course, nearly everything does carry over... I heard better to go with openrc if we going based on Devuan...

On the Debian side I would use the bullseye repos just for the newer packages though. For instance there is a big difference between xfce4.12 and 4.14. ;)

Not too sure if Devuan has a testing repo like that...know what I mean.

just curious anyone  interested in a Debian base or a non systemd peppermint?  :-\

FWIW: You could accomplish both by using Devuan as a base variant. It could make an excellent stable and unique platform option.

So if I understand it correctly 2 Peppermints? One based on Ubuntu and one based on Debian? I know nothing about development. I'm just a user.

@johan.....no body said systemd is getting dropped  ;) only adding more choices instead of straight Ubu....
Besides My day job is a .net core developer and MSFT is jumping on the systemd bus ...... personally systemd is here to stay for the corporate world  .... 8)

@johan most of the pep way of things are finished. I.e most of the skinned stuff you see in pep 10 is finished.

Hmmm, in the beginning alot of folks stood up to help, but I guess with life and stuff not a lot of that came to fruition.  So only a very few actual devs stuck around. And between full-time work and free time I suppose is one big reason, things take time plus creating base line documents as we go through the process to have a sound foundation for future peps... ;).

Calamares actually has better documentation.... That's why... Ubiquity although easy enough to configure...it was the lack of documentation, at first...then the other thing, being dependent on Ubuntu...once we broke from that ubiquity was not needed. Now instead of casper etc the Debian live build  / wrapper tools are used.

Mint-update.....hmmmm this is an odd thing isn't it.... Pep 10 is based on Ubuntu but depends on Linux mint to categorize, it's updates...now you're dependent on. Two distros for something not just one  ???..... If any of those two change something it most definitely will affect peppermintOS.

I dunno it doesn't really leave much wiggle room for pep to make its own development decisions...

I think the idea is........ instead of being a skinned Ubuntu basically, getting pep less dependent on things will help innovation and give it..... it's own ground to stand on.

All in all building a pathway to give an option to get away from the Ubuntu eco system I guess you could say adds to the time as well.  ;)

Hope this help you  ;D
Yes it did thanks. To be honest that is the biggest downside of Peppermint. And now that Mark Greaves is gone developement takes even longer now. Personal live should always come first I know. I don't know if I go with something else yet because time is a factor, not only now, but also for further releases. But for now Pepp 10 is still supported till 2023.

@darknet: If they dump systemD you can't play certain games because they depend on system according to English Bob :-\
