^ 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

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

Re: How To: smxi Install and Setup

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

Re: How To: smxi Install and Setup

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

@ 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

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.
