Sodium Update



  • Ok, after I sign in and go to anything but dashboard, I can't get back to the dashboard from the shortcuts on the left side. I can click any of the other ones, but the dashboard link just flashes the "dashboard" text popup over and over, clicking does nothing.

    Opera 51.0.2830.34, on windows 8.1.

    I'm sorry. I always hated their Metro desktop.



  • @nerdydad once you dump all those stupid tiles, it works fine. Still better than win 10, especially on the vintage Dell workstation I have.

    I actually like Win10, except for they are forcing me to move off of the old Control Panel and to their new Settings Pane. I know that sounds stupid, but that is just my opinion.



  • yea,.. still getting kicked out here. even after reboots..

    I like 10 ok, but it has been terribly unstable on everything I've tried (laptops, new, badass workstations, tablets, you name it). I can't deal with the crashing and freezing and constant driver issues. I've reinstalled it on one desktop here multiple times, as I refuse to spend any time figuring out the problem on a testing system (no user data at all on it). I nuke and pave, they test, then I have to reinstall the nest time they want to test stuff.

    Known issue. I get that, too.

    I have stability issues with Win10, too.



  • Got kicked out of the console after maybe 1.5 hours of inactivity. Tired of resetting my password as my company name is always "incorrect" no matter what I put in (it's a simple name, with or without the hyphen. Not sure what else it would be except the actual company name).

    I did but it was 3+ hours of use, 1.5+ of inactivity.



  • @rojoloco PM me the company name, I'll look it up.

    I don't know what it is, it rejects everything I put in. And our company name is simple and short, I would only put it in one of two ways.



  • Did some work tonight. The big thing that is done tonight is that the Windows installer is a bit more robust now. The key thing is that it now handles automatic generation of a UUID like our UNIX installer has been doing for quite some time. Some Windows pickup issues have been caused by key collision and duplicates getting ignored. This fixes that. The UUID is totally under the hood and you never really need to know about it, but it is an important part of the mechanism and is all there now.

    We will soon be making the UUID visible in the interface labeled as the SodiumID, but that will totally be for troubleshooting and nothing else.



  • Today's work has been almost exclusively in OS detection and deployments. A lot of progress, though. We are able to support several more kinds of OSes today.
