The problem is, that first line. APT doesn't care about the URL/mirror name, it cares about the n=bullseye code-name. It makes all sources named "bullseye" priority 750. Since bullseye-security is priority 500 (as defined in its release file), it is lower priority and bodhi will not get Debian security updates.
A possible quick workaround is to add bullseye-security in the preferences file as 750 or higher also.
The real solution is have the bl6 repo use a code-name other than bullseye (i.e. bullseye-bodhi) so that it is possible to assign higher priority to it than actual bullseye repo without breaking critical security updates. This is important if bodhi repo has any packages with same name as Debian packages.
Alternatively to preferences, if bodhi changes the name (to something like bullseye-bodhi),I think we don't even need to do anything with preferences files. The priority number can be defined in the release file or something... but I didn't follow up on the details of that.
[On a side-note, apparently this is a problem with that Debian multimedia repo i mentioned... they also use code-name bullseye, which annoys Debian users who want to make it lower priority than official repo and only install stuff from it by specifying with -t which is normally required for lower priority repos when same package exists in higher priority repo]
At long last, I am thrilled to announce the BETA release of a 32 bit Debian Bullseye version of Bodhi Linux 6.0. It features the kernel linux-image-5.10.0-8-686, EFL 1.25.1 and of course up to date versions of Moksha and our themes.
Please report any issues or possible improvements to these ISOs here. But try to keep things on topic this time and only post about issues with the ISO or the installation. Moksha, theme, or application issues are a separate matter and should be posted elsewhere.
Thanks and enjoy
EDIT: Only install a PAE kernel if you need more than 4 G memory.
First of all, thank you for this great little distro! This is even usable on old Asus EeePC which I'm now trying to setup for kids as first play around computer... Only problem I have with 6.0 Legacy is, that either one of beta version aren't installable. I mean there's nothing to select at first screen of installer. Would it be possible to include straight install option at menu where to select either starting live or install, or at least classical text based installer?
Hopefully this could be done, thanks anyway!
Edit: Or Could I get 6.0.0 legacy beta by installing 5.1.0 legacy and changing sources, or will it mosy likely brake system if changing from ubuntu base to debian base?
oldtech , is there a reason you can't run the installer after booting the live session? That's how Bodhi is traditionally installed, and I've personally installed the beta isos on real hardware with 512mb RAM using the graphical installer.... so unless you have less ram than that, should be no need for the text installer anyway...
enigma9o7 That machine is Asus EeePC with Intel Atom processor and 1GB of memory. Like said in previous post, there's nothing to select at first screen of installation screen. It just says this will install Bodhil linux, but no option to continue, just that one screen with "dots" at upper right to show at which step of installation you are now.
If I don't remember totally wrong with Bodhi linux 5.1.0 Legacy there was install option straight there at first screen after reboot, so didn't reguire booting to live cd. Also at years of ubuntu, some older but much more cabable machines than EeePC reguired to use alternate installation media, so with Legacy I think that option would have good reasons to be there, at least when booting from usb to select straight install instead of live.
oldtech , You may want to re-write your Bodhi Linux install to your USB.
Team, please will correct me if I'm wrong (and I know you will ), but the USB should boot straight into a live session - Bodhi is designed to be installed from here. If you try other methods you are likely to experience more difficulty or failure.
It was odd to me at first having to run live to install, but it really does run smoothly as enigma9o7 said. We only have two devs, so we unfortunately have to pick our battles and many are ever evolving.
I do not have much experience to comment on the failures of the beta installers beyond check your download and re-write and try again. I have our 6.0 32bit installed on one machine since alpha and it runs flawlessly (IBM T20 Thinkpad). Mileage may vary on betas unfortunately.
oblio Ok, might remember wrong cause tested so many distros at that machine in short time. Now it (EeePC) has Slax on hdd (which was intresting method to do), but it's meant for live-usb usage (doed save intalled apps etc. for next session though. But it's bit pain to try to get it login other than autologin with root which is default...
Now did md5sum test to bodhi-6.0.0-legacy-beta2.iso and everything is ok. Flashing it with etcher and after flash let etcher check writed data against image... Now Booted EeePC from newly written usb, it doesn't boot straight to live but instead there's:
-Start Bodhi Linux -Start Bodhi Linux in compatibility mode -Start with PAE forced -Integrity Check -Hardware Detection -Boot from local drive -Memory test
First option obviously starts live session straight away, but now I first chose Integrity Check which reports Success.
Then reboot and selecting that first option to start live session..
When finally at desktop after selecting language and keyboard layout, everything seems fine.
When starting Install Bodhi Linux window opens and all can be seen is:
Welcome to Bodhi Linux Installer.
This program will ask you some questions and set up Bodhi Linux on your computer.
It doesn't ask anything and there's no way to continue from there...So unfortunately for me it is exactly as "smooth" experience I originally said. Hope there could be some solution though.
It sounds like it's just some sort of screen resolution issue. I wonder if the installer can be set to an even lower resolution or if there is a way to ensure all the needed information for install is displayed in a very compact way? ...hmm. Regardless, that's a bummer - sorry to hear!
I do have an HP netbook from yesteryear hanging around. I just fired it up for the first time in about 4 years this past weekend. It's running either Bodhi Linux 2.x or 3.1. I will have to try installing 6.0 on that an see if I experience any issues with the small screen/resolution.
Nice work with checking and writing the data again - everything so far sounds promising and like you are a few clicks away from having it.
Hopefully someone will have a workaround or has experienced that before. You are really close - I hope someone is able to help. I will continue to search the Wiki and Forum to see if I come across anything helpful.
oblio Thanks for testing too at HP Notebook at some point! I still think easiest solution would be to add Install option to that already quite long menu (so one useful option more wouldn't ruin anything), which would straight launch installer without first starting live mode. It's Ok to keep Live installation method at 64bit editions, but also at there it would just be 1 more menu option. But for Legacy... After all it is older computer which might have issues with live installers, the ones Legacy version is meant for. This was the case also long time ago with some ubuntu versions that one has to use alternate installer media... And seems this is still the case. Sure some EeePC isn't quite useful computer anymore in first case which is why it seems to be the one which brings this issue up. Gotta to check live usb sometime at gnomeboxes too, I bet there will be no problems there.
