mkswap in nutyx-setup changes uuid of all swaps
« on: Wed Sep 13 20:58:07 2017 »
Can nutyx team change the mkswap behaviour of nutyx-setup, not to mkswap on already activasted swaps of other linuxes? How about a check of valid swaps and then a simple swapon on already used swaps? Or to let choose to use an active swap or when not available to create one and then to mkswap on selected partition?!
I always use uuid's because of usb attached hdd on an notebook.
All other things on system are O.K. ... Sometimes cards tell me .../filelist? not found than i have to cvopy the backup to filelist. System is very fast, only problems with japanese fonts on kde xfce.
Hope you stay as simple ...
Mikke

Hello Mikke,

Welcome to NuTyX community. Thanks a lot for your comment about the installer.

It would be possible, but I would like to know why you don't want that setup-nutyx automaticaly (re)format swap partitions?

This would need more inputs from you... I'm lost here.

I might be wrong but for the moment KDE or Xfce on NutyX do not support Japanese fonts. Nevertheless, it should be possible to install some with minor effort.

Regards

How long have we not been able to help with this interesting issue? I'm very surprised and happy to discuss it.
