Hi missing friend... thanks for the heads up
Edit: well when I try make download the ISO appear as option via torrent so as I have installed QBittorrent here normally Firefox open link to QBittorrent but this time my beloved application Adguard Premium warn to me this
Indeed, this website asks you if you wanna give some of your processing power to help them, that's why i never download torrents because of this, and that's pretty weird
It's how they make something for the download, I stopped using torrents years ago. If it isn't http I won't touch it!
I'm sad to see Ikey has left the Solus project he is an amazing person and a great dev, I wish him all the very best for the future.
My problem with Solus, is the way if forces you to install the kernel files inside the ESP partition. No other distro that I've used does it that way.
Complains that my partition is too small. Which I'm not about to increase. My only thought of a solution, is to backup ESP, then clean if out.
Install Solus. Then move all the kernel files back to where they belong; inside "/boot".
Then reinstall my original ESP partition. From Xubuntu grub.cfg point it to correct Solus linux files.
The only foreseeable problem is on kernel updates, then I would have to do it all over again. Not worth the effort.
The systemd-boot is not what I want. Tried it on a Arch Linux install. When back to grub.
This distro has severely dropped in QoS regarding updates. They only have an edu mirror (so only one) since Fastly isn't there anymore (which was Ikey thing IIRC)
Sometimes it simply stops and returns an error telling that "edu mirror doesnt have this file" , pretty much random too (and it's not my network as I got no problems with any other distros).
I wouldn't recommend it for a beginner either, to be frank, Debian has became easier to install and is WAY more of a solid choice than Solus.
I used to love Solus but it's now a win-or-lose situation updating wise.
I use debian, ive tried various "based on" distros. If there is a bug in debian you have to wait for that to be fixed then for it to trickle down to your distro. Stuff that, straight to the source and even as far back as Etch debian was easy to install and i did it without any problems and iknew a lot less back then.
Even their "expert install" is quite easy to follow if you read everything, like no excuses lol
Recently tried Fedora too and it's beginner proof, it has a similar "installing updates" interface to windows 10 when you reboot, and i love how simple they make their verification guide with only 3 commands and one file.
Debian is a little bit more complicated as you have to catch the full URL linking to the ISO, removing the ISO name then browsing until you get SHA512 (so far the only distro i saw using it along with gparted live CD) so yeah, i'd prob recommend Fedora more because of that, more accessible.
Debian for me too, easy to install and setup, loads of software no bugs. I am on Lubuntu at the mo because I am having to use a very low spec machine, its the best option I could find for my present situation, in fairness it is very good.
bogus is not for me...oops my bad...solus is not for me.
any os that shoves libre office down my throat i would not touch with a barge pole.
get kde neon.
Most come with Libre office, its easy to replace with Freeoffice or similar.
may i ask why?
these do not : debian xfce, fedora silverblue, kde neon, ubuntu minimal
even mycrowsoft does not shove mycrowsoft office down my throat.
who decides if i have a necessity for office or not?
replace office with office...nice.
install the os & then right away start uninstalling bloatware...precisely why i dumped windoors. why would i want a linux distro that makes me go through the same?
No idea why, they just do.
if you want a distro minus all the pre-installed crap :
kde neon = kde desktop environment minimal install only
xfce debian = xfce desktop environment minimal install only
ubuntu = gnome desktop environment full / minimal you can choose during installation
fedora silverblue = gnome desktop environment minimal install with ostree
it is your computer so you decide what software you need.
The list of distros that have a core minimal install release is a lot bigger than that. I don't really see what your point is, there are Linux distributions with all the bells and whistles and there are others with a lot less or nothing, isn't that a good thing? Plenty of choice. I don't particularly like Solus but the package contains a well balanced assortment of software that will suit most people. Don't like it? Fine, find/use something else. There were a few releases that had a tick box selection process on installation that allowed you to choose what software you wanted to add but that hasn't caught on, that was the perfect solution.
please do share the ones you know other than the ones i have mentioned.
there are innumerable distros but only a few are well maintained with regular updates & new releases. plenty of choice yes but pointless.
i guess i am not in the most people league.
precisely what i am doing...am just stating my dislike, nothing personal.
perfect solution...no, because for those you have to be online during installation.
