hi,

I change kdm theme to aptosid and remove sidux theme. But in the aptosid theme, it's "aptosid welcome to sidux"? Is it just me or everyone else?

in my terminal, it's administrator@sidux and root@sidux (administrator is my username). How to change @sidux to @aptosid?

Thanx.

You called your computer "sidux" when you installed (hostname) - this can be changed in /etc/hostname

People usually call their computers something memorable from a tv shows/books/games etc. As an example, I name my computers after Cowboy Bebop characters (spike, vicious, ed, ein, faye etc)

Or something less creative, like laptop/desktop/server etc

It's up to you to decide what you call it, I'd probably recommend against aptosid just to avoid this type of confusion in future Smile

The kdm theme pulls the hostname variable.

Change your hostname, and kdm will say "Welcome to Carmen Electra" Smile

Please take care that the hostname needs to be changed (at least) at three different places:
- /etc/hostname
- /etc/mailname
- /etc/hosts

followed by a reboot (or "hostname -F /etc/hostname" as root).

Also take care that there are strict syntax requirements for valid hostnames, using invalid characters (or even worse, whitespace) will break a number of essential packages in non-trivial to subtile ways.

2 types of installs completed.
The most clean was the new aptosid system and a flawless dis-upgrade as soon as installation complete.

I did the upgrade from sidux to aptosid on the main computer I use. its OK but reasonably speaking... it is hybridized now and I expect it to become slowly diminished over time... so I am going to rebuild it very soon after I get what I need to migrate to a new fresh install. I think that would be best.

what do you mean with "hybridized", and what you mean with "slowly diminished over time"?

the aptosid system, which is transitioned from sidux system by the sidux.com's script, is a
wholly complete aptosid system, and supported here. It is rolling release, and sidux is
still rolling in the new name.

Would this be why I still have :

in your case 'sidux 2009-04 Μόρος - kde-full - (200912310312)' is from /etc/sidux-version and should not be changed.
it can be helpful for support to determine what the base install was.
