  1. Hi Sparky Development & Support Team,

    I have tried installing Sparky 5.9, both the LXQT and XFCE versions, and both fail about 85% of the way through the installation with the error message:

    ‘Boost.Python error in job “packages”‘
    ‘Command ‘apt-get update’ returned non-zero exit status 100.’

    I tried re-downloading the iso images several times, but always the installation fails at the same point, with the same error message.

    I am trying to install Sparky 5.9 on a 64-bit desktop system with 32GB of RAM (plenty), and as a VM guest OS under VirtualBox 6.0. The host OS is Mint 19.2. I have other Linux systems running as guests on the same system platform.

    I also tried running the advanced installer from the live images, but it failed as well.

    Any ideas to assist me get Sparky installed properly? I REALLY want to run Sparky as my all-around everyday system, as I love the feel, look, and swiftness of it.
    I appreciate any assistance from your team.

    Thank You All Very Much!
    Sincerely,
    Msebe Kwa-iLanga

  2. Sparkylinux, an excellent distribution, based on Debian. My suggestion is to place the PCManFM File Manager Launcher by default in the application bar, so that when the installation is complete, the PCManFM File Manager Launcher appears in the application bar.

    Sparkylinux, doskonała dystrybucja oparta na Debianie. Moją propozycją jest umieszczenie programu uruchamiającego menedżera plików PCManFM domyślnie w pasku aplikacji, aby po zakończeniu instalacji na pasku aplikacji pojawił się program uruchamiający menedżera plików PCManFM.

  3. I tried to install SparkyLinux 4.8.1 LXDE on a old desktop with less dan 1 GB of RAM (768 MB RAM) and the installer refused to install it for that reason! Please adjust the minimum specs on your website, because that is not correct..

  4. although i was using linux since 5 years, i found debian to be too advanced for me to handle, thus relying on ubuntu, neglecting its downsides.
    When i found Sparky, this was in fact the way to go for me, as it is a managable debian – so to speak.
    And of course, i recommend it to friends ever since. It is unbelievable, that so few devs could do, what the whole debian entourage apparently could not: Your work is appreciated very much! Keep it up!

  5. So, this would be more productive if there was an actual IRC channel.. That .pl one is dead and isnt even in English…

  6. Hi there, I’ll be happy to support SparkyLinux by providing download/repository mirror, don’t know if you need it not not?
