This script provides various fixes for SolydXK systems. The first versions were created to ease processing of the SolydXK Home Editions' July 2014 Update Pack. Descriptions of earlier versions are still available here and here.
With the --help option the script currently shows this list of functions and options:

General options: -h, --help display this text and exit -l open the log in an editor after the action -s FILE use FILE as settings file instead of solydfixes.conf -y use the --yes option with apt-get (see apt-get manpage) -z use zenity to display the README file and exit --remove [+log] remove an installed set, optionally including the log files Arguments with related options (if any): upgrade [TARGET] upgrade a SolydXK system to version 9 (and its Debian base to stretch) or, with stable or testing as target, to (Debian) stable or testing (the latter also upgrades SolydXK to EE) -r OLD_RELEASE specify 8 or ee if a (partial) rerun is required hold do not 'unhold' any held packages vbox switch to VirtualBox's own repository and packages dmo remove deb-multimedia.org (DMO) repository and packages get download the most recent version of this script gksu fix gksu not working because of a limited xhost setting sysgroups fix non-system values of system groups lpadmin and sambashare tmp fix incorrect /tmp to /var/tmp linkage vbox remove superfluous VirtualBox guest addition packages You need to specify one or more arguments.
