Re: acpi fan issues, no fan and overheating = 3.13+ kernel b

Wait a minute! You mean that sim re-published the instructions on how to build alphaos from scratch! :o
I hadn't noticed that. That's more than halfway through to make alpha a free&open OS again.
Sim, don't you think this deserves a wiki? :D

Re: FireFox alternatives in GTK3?

Browser-testing day, here. I'm really sad to say that I don't see alternatives to Firefox. Chrome/chromium come from google which is a company that I would never use products on a permanent daily basis. Opera seems to be almost dead and if not it's going through a big change which makes it highly un...

Re: {New User}: How to Force savefile save

I want to use it when for some reason I don't have a save file (I do that a lot because I install everything with makesb) and I create one just to save some settings on my profile. Like I just installed my web browser using makesb name_of_the_browser and I want to save my preferences so that they ar...

Re: {New User}: How to Force savefile save

So, does that mean that as soon as I run save-session alphaos mounts changes.fs4 and writes any changes to the file?

Re: Firewall on 15.x - where is it

Yep, I'm behind a router. I do have a 4G pendisk but I don't know how to set it up with connman. BTW, today I had some 6 or 7 connman failures. It simply segfaults on me. The guys down at #connman irc channel asked me to get some logs. I did but the logs aren't clear why it fails. Then they told me ...

Re: {New User}: How to Force savefile save

Scooby wrote:Yes save-session does that. Only thing is you probably shouldn't run it the first time you create savefile.
After one reboot it is safe!

Could you please explain why it's not safe to run it before 1st reboot? Because that's exactly the moment when it would come more handy...

Re: FireFox alternatives in GTK3?

:roll:
I just installed and used midori-gtk3 for about 30 minutes and had it crash on me 5 times.
Just try to open youtube.com or rdio.com (both should work with html5) and you'll see what I mean.
Too bad because it seems to be thought/developed with care.
Impossible to use as an alternative.

Re: Firewall on 15.x - where is it

Sure, but it shouldn't be difficult, right?
It's just a matter of enabling the firewall and then from another PC on the same subnet try to open a port that we know for sure that it's closed on alphaos, right?

Re: Firewall on 15.x - where is it

Sorry mate, I don't keep older versions of alphaos/archpup.
No way for me to test it so we better forget about it.
But we should think/come up with an alternative. Linux is pretty strong but there's nothing like having a firewall.
