Multimedia stuff can be discussed here. And we are not as restrict as aptosid is in this point.

But there are some irc-channels at irc.oftc.net (e.g. #siduction, #siduction-de, #siduction-core, #siduction-dev, #siduction-art, #siduction-doc - all wide open for everyone).


Thanks, that's good to know.:)

I like the comments from devil, cryptosteve etc. For some time, I've used aptosid for installs, then abandoned it for h2's scripts. I'd have enjoyed a closer liaison between the two, but was forced to choose, so aptosid became simply a convenient sid installer.
I did a faultless siduction install on a spare partition yesterday and I like it. Hopefully we've all found a new home at last.
Congratulations, Team!

I use h2's scripts mainly to set up a fresh install quickly and then use apt-get for the dist upgrades and watching what apt says before going on.

Welcome on over paleoflatus...your nick I remember even from the Kanotix days too

Siduction sure is seducing (or is it siducing :D )

Thanks for the welcome. DeepDayze, Kanotix take us back a fair way and it's always been a good ride. After a few days' trial on a spare partition, I formatted my root partition and a full new install of siduction not only went well, but it continues to run perfectly for me. For anyone interested, I left my aptosid/sid home partition intact, which saved a lot of configuration etc. All I had to do was install software for my cheap Ralink USB wifi modem and apt-get update/install a few programmes like iView, Chrome, Luckybackup etc. to join up with their config files in my home directory.
My only glitch was that I forgot to add the boot flag to the new root partition and had to re-run gparted off the DVD to fix it. I wonder whether this could be made to happen automatically when users select their boot partition during an install?

I guess, you installed grub to partition, otherwise there is no need for a bootflag that i know of. We would have to look into the possible disadvantages of a default bootflag.

devil,
It's good to have you there again. Actually, I deleted sda1 and sda2, then combined the space to format a new sda1 with ext4, neglecting to add the boot flag. I may have overlooked something, but I put grub into sda and I thought it landed in the MBR. Anyway, it was easily fixed with the DVD and a quick visit to gparted.
After over 15 years with linux, I'm still a very simple user!

By the way, I forgot to add that I also installed moc. I listen to a lot of music (Der Rosenkavalier and Oscar Peterson yesterday) and it's my favourite ultra-convenient music player.

So far my test siduction install's pretty darn solid...a bit faster than my aptosid install got to say. Going to take the plunge and copy my install over after formatting the aptosid partition plus adjusting fstab and grub.

I can confirm DeepDayze verdict :-)
I am experimenting all evening long now with a notebookinstall, and I am very content!
This release Candidate is already rockstable and runs thanks to towos kernel really fast (KDE install).
I am very happy and grateful! Thanks everybody!

PS: paleoflatus, I remember you too from Kanotix-Days. Welcome back onboard!

Same experience over here. My daughter just visited over the holydays with the usual task of updationg her laptop.

While I am surely not updatimng with the sicduction rc1 I however took the chance to test it with the XFce amd64 dvd.

This laptop (an compag 615) had given me quite an amount of headaches in the past because of its naughty BIOS. I had used Kernels from different sources (aptosid, liquorix and debian-sid) which sometimes worked but some time later didn't.

Last time I reinstalled finally from an debian-netinstall-cd from testing and upgrading the installation afterwards all the way to sid. Aptosid-dvds didn't boot at all.

So now with the siduction rc1 dvd I could choose my country setting and the boot straigth away trough up to the X/XFce--surface.
Feels very rock-solid and promising. Well some little issues are coming up but those are more of the cosmetical type, nor real showstoppers to see.


regards

Reiner

Devil,
My humbles. Come to think of it, I included moc in the list after apt-get install and there was a message about it already being there. Glad you like it too - I worked my way through university many years ago playing jazz piano, after turning down a scholarship in classical piano. for me, moc's all I need for music and I love it.

Lanzi,
I'm flattered to be remembered by all of you old nicks. It's great that we're all still following the same star and you make me feel at home again.

Hello. Really nice to see so many familiar nicks.
 
It had been fun: kanotix, sidux, then finally out.
Like many, I finally left sidux after h2 was banned.
I didn't get banned 'cause I didn't talk about
using sidux as an installer for testing. :)
Bluewater suggested it would probably not go over well.

Downloading now and looking forward to installing
a partition with siduction-xfce.
[Done. Looks very polished. Thanks for a job well done!]

I've been using SalineOS all year. A great way
to run stable. I'll keep it up-to-date as a safety net.

See lots of hits on Distrowatch for the new
RC release. Seems many have been waiting for
a change in the sid tide.

Congratulations siduction team on the new release.

I see many familiar names from my time with kanotix and sidux, whose posts I enjoyed reading and learned a lot from. Greetings to you all.

I left sidux shortly after kde4 came in because I was not happy with the direction sid in general was taking and have used stable as main OS since. What happened to the community side of sidux itself, made absolutely sure I never returned, the scorpion summed it all up quite well.

 I never had actual technical difficulty in the past and always knew some day I would be running sid again. Maybe now is the time. I’m finding xfce lately more than just usable

Here still exists a working system originally installed from kanotix, dist-upgraded to the time I left sidux, which survived numerous changes of hard disk and mainboard.

I have already a persistent siduction xfce on a usb stick and like it to the point that where I go next is under total review. How I did that install (not fll2usb)  is a little unusual and a subject for another time.

I read somewhere, the installer can put grub in PBR (i.e. not trash my current carefully-customised legacy mbr) if that's correct I can go ahead with a proper install (grub2 was one of my past major annoyances with sid)
