These are two totally different scenarios. Which of them is correct? If the second one, then try to set Secure Boot to disabled in your BIOS. If this does not help, then additionally set Legacy Support to enabled. You should find these two options in the advanced BIOS settings.

.
Well, both happened, actually.
Still no succes, also unchecked 'enable ms uefi ca key'
The only option I have is 'legacy support enabled and secure boot disabled'
If I choose 'legacy support disabled and secure boot enabled' or both disabled, things go wrong in the bios.
I then get a message 'start PXE over ipv6' in other words it wants to start from network.
Back to factory settings helped.
But now I read a Bash message during boot, after an eufi install.
-bash: error while loading shared libraries: /lib/libncurses.so.6: file too short
This may be use full.
Always grateful for what you do,
Edward

Hi,

Sorry, but now I understand nothing. If you tried 'legacy support enabled and secure boot disabled' then this was not UEFI install meaning that 4MLinux should use LILO. Was that so? Could you see LILO during the boot?

If you did not see LILO, then set 'legacy support enabled and secure boot disabled' and perform fresh installation.

PS.
"loading shared libraries: /lib/libncurses.so.6: file too short" means read-write errors on your disk.

Hi, sorry for this rather late reply.

I do not understand it neither. I have performed a fresh usb 35.1 install, following your instructions, and the result remains the same.
Weither this is a uefi or a legacy install with LILO.

In order to find out that it is not my shortcomings (I do have them, I admit), I did a upup bionicpup 32-8.0 install and with succes.

I still have a good working 35.0 on my other older HP laptop, but I am a bit reluctant to update.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Kind regards, Edward

I wish DW wasn't so slow with updating their pages. They still don't have v35 on https://distrowatch.com/dwres.php?re...distro=4mlinux. I'd like to leave a review but can't. I messaged them weeks ago but to no avail.

Unhappy

They omit many versions along the way also. That's bad form!

Still no update on DW - oh dear!

I'm currently on v35.1 and want to vote and leave a review but cannot as things stand.

4MLinux 35.2 released.

This is a minor (point) release in the 4MLinux STABLE channel, which comes with the Linux kernel 5.4.91. The 4MLinux Server now includes Apache 2.4.46, MariaDB 10.5.8, and PHP 7.4.14.
You can update your 4MLinux by executing the "zk update" command in your terminal (fully automatic process).

Updated to 35.2 in my AQEMU VM - no issues (apart from having to reset my resolution but that was simple to fix).

Question

Hi Zbigniew.

I'm using 4MLinux 35.2 in virt-manager (I copied the old .img file from my AQEMU folder). On each bootup, the Wbar is off. How can I have it enabled on every log in?

I wonder if it's anything to do with the full screen resolution?

Thanks.

Let's start with reinstalling the jwm package. You'll find it in the /var/4MLinux directory.

Perfect! I went to that folder and ran:
Code:
zx addon_jwm-2.3.7.tar.xz
I did a reboot and had to re-set my resolution back to 1920*1080 from 1024*768. All good now.
