Howto: Popular AppImages one click away

This is the commit number. Imagemagick is in continuous development cycle and it seems they use this versioning convention. Thanks for the info. How does one invoke them without going to the shell? Even more, how does one invoke them going to the shell through the AppImage? How to use it? Quite sim...

(In the age of Corona-Chan global weirdness we all can use a good laugh once in a while) Searching for avai...

[HOWTO] make a xzm module driver for NVIDIA video card

No,you need to downgrade xorg properly. I replaced the xorg.xzm to test if the driver would compile then. I didn't care if something else breaks.(I'm pretty sure it will) Is there a HOWTO for downgrading such an important part of the OS? I know how to remove a single package. But that is not really...

[HOWTO] make a xzm module driver for NVIDIA video card

xorg 1.20 is the show stopper, the kernel not so much. I once made a test using port-5, replaced the xorg.xzm to see if the 304 driver would compile/work, it worked. That means, it would be possible, to e.g. use kernel 5.4.19 or possible a never 5.4.* kernel. And just replace xorg.xzm. Do any of th...

Is dpkg and dpkg-deb needed for deb2xzm ?
nope, only (some of) binutils ... mc has some debian specific builtins...
So I need to have binutils activated?

Since I not use a standard 5.0rc1 but more a 5.0rc1 pre-rc2 is there a newer binutils module?
