ABOUT PuppEX Focal64 Build 201121
A new PuppEX Focal64 version with kernel 5.9.9 (latest) is ready today. Unfortunately it does not have Nvidiaís Proprietary Graphics driver 450.80.02 installed (as Build 201119 has). I could not find a patch for kernel 5.9. The good news is that this new version has the kernel sources for kernel 5.9.9. This means that VirtualBox Guest Additions can be installed by you.

This report is not meant to be a Deep Dive so much as an I Want It Fixed NOW, How Do I Do It? We may be hearing from my other team members as I go along for more tips.

Cleaning up EFI

After many installations of different distros on my computer, I discovered...

I have not had an entirely stable life of late, with two jobs each not giving me sufficient hours and the uncertainty which goes with that. I did get Distrohoppers' Digest out last week (with Tony Hughes and Dale Miracle), but I think I need to forego mintCast today.

I've had some interesting finds on my multiboot System76 Kudu 3. I currently have 7 distros on it, on a 1 Tb SSD. Manjaro boots only when Manjaro owns GRUB, but otherwise boots to a black screen, no cursor, no way to...
