SparkyLinux 3.0.1 Ultra update


This is an update of SparkyLinux 3.0.1 Ultra Edition ready for download.
The last system upgrade from Debian “testing” repositories caused an error of “marchobmenu”, which is pre-installed as default with Openbox desktop.
The problematic package of the situation was “python-xdg” – its update from version 0.19-5 to 0.25-3 resulted losing compatibility with the “marchobmenu” (which is not updated for the last three years).

The solution is: downgrade the “python-xdg” package from Debian stable “Wheezy” repository and block it before updating.

The second option might be to replace the “marchobmenu” by the standard Debian menu.
See how to do that: Marchobmenu bug

New iso images of Sparky 3.0.1 Ultra provides (still) “marchobmenu”.
