Problem installing desktop LXDE

Post by valdragas »

Good,

I am trying to install the LXDE desktop but there comes a point where it throws me the following error:

Code: Select all

The Pi has URL connectivity:

Hi,

you are running an old DietPi version. Pls update your system as the file the installation is trying to download did not exit anymore.
Pls let us know if a solution is working. This could help others if they hit by similar situation. Your DietPi Team

Good

I would rather not have to update as I updated another PI last week and suffered data corruption.

There is no way to solve it without updating?

Ah yes, we renamed that file and forgot that the old one needs to stay for older versions.

When you face the error prompt, you can select "change command" and replace the file name in the URL with "98-dietpi-disable_dpms.conf". That is how it is called now.

Is that a feature already working in v6.32.2? Honestly I forgot the version we introduced it 😅

It's just an X.org config with the aim to disable display power management, which is not well supported by RPi and most SBCs, e.g. display turns of during video playback, Chromium kiosk, cloudshell/monitoring tools etc.

Ah, true. At least I see a scroll bar in the error paste, so down arrow key would reveal those options.
