Someone like me wink

Anyway you're explanation is really fine (although the script already by itself is nicely structured and comes with good explanations). Just a question: I didn't see an option to automatically do (by smxi) upgrades (?)

And then, is it that way, that once you ran the script 'sudo apt-get install && apt-get upgrade' refers to the settings set by smxi?

TIA for your patience.

PS. I've some issues with the graphics driver (fglrx vs radeon) so i skipped the graphics section for fear to break something (will ask that in a proper thread).

Re: How To: smxi Install and Setup

^ You don't ever really want a system to do automatic upgrades I think, in case it removes/installs packages you don't want it to.

Re: How To: smxi Install and Setup

This was awesome! Thank you!

I used the first two lines and then was able to figure out the rest on my own. At the end, I compared what I did to the rest of this guide, and it turns out I did pretty much the same thing.

Cheers!  big_smile

EDIT: I'm one of those new users... When I was going by the guide, I stopped at

1) yes-add-liquorix-sources

because this part wasn't there. The script went straight from

1) continue-no-change

to

1) apt-get

Re: How To: smxi Install and Setup

Hi VastOne,

Thanks for this great how to.

As I will never remember all the steps I have just printed this how to out. I hope to make use of it shortly as the Wife is getting a laptop so I will be able to delete windows from my desktop and use to partition to try and install waldorf and convert it to sid. That is if that is the way to do it, anyway I will try it. If it fails I can always ask  smile


Cheers smile smile

Great howto, although I thought the documentation on how to install and use it from the official website was very strightforward and simple.

I'm sure it is sunfizz, what's wonderful about what Vastone and others are doing here is making fairly new Linux users aware that such a utility exists, along with fascilitating their installation.

Smxi is useful, enabled me to go past the bork issue I encountered when installing liquorix manually.

Re: How To: smxi Install and Setup

@ VastOne
Thanks for the great How To, I've been running liquorix for several months this makes it so much easier to test new kernels.

I run Liquorix also and love the ease of smxi, especially the nVidia installs to the kernel

Re: How To: smxi Install and Setup

Just treated myself to the best hardware I could afford, for graphics/3D rendering, which included an NVIDIA card (which is the only one at the moment to support GPU rendering in Blender afaik). I knew that I would have issues with it, but I expected that the excellent hand-holding here would be sufficient. So after innumerable installing/reading/borkage/reinstalling efforts, I gathered the courage to try smxi, before resorting to asking you guys.

Wonderful immediate success installing the latest experimental driver! Yaay!

Thanks Santa (and all the smxi elves smile )

Re: How To: smxi Install and Setup

Wow, thanks. Nice and simple, great post, I'll definitely give it a try; on my list TO DO's.
A have a question: I never heard about Liquorix before, you think it's better overall than the original Linux Kernel, for a laptop, I mean?
I looked around a little bit and found this; I don't see that much of a difference overall.
I do get (sometimes) some audio problems though.
I have a vaio amd (cpu & graphics) and audio Intel HDA (nee ATI SBx00 Azalia).
Thanks again for the post and for sharing your knowledge. big_smile

Re: How To: smxi Install and Setup

I have been wondering this for a while,
Does smxi setup the 32bit and 64bit nvidia drivers on a 64bit system or just the 64bit ones?
I need this kind of mulitarch setup for some programs on my system and I can't find anything about this in the documentation.
