Re: mx-17 and mx-18

Actually mx17 upgrades to mx18 automatically. The label on the partition shouldn't change, but that's not how the grub menu is built anyway. No, the partition label does not change. I installed the 18 beta on a test/backup box with 17 on it. Then the 18 rc preserving /home. Next, the 18 release. I ...

Re: Disable system updates? [BRICKED]

Pretty pointless Jerry since computer won't start. I'm answering from a Mint machine. Just a thought. can you use a snapshot of mx, or other, to check using gparted to see where the boot flag is ? (and if data is still there on the drive) Especially if windows is still on the drive (even if not use...

New Discovery

After moving Mepis 12 to another drive for archive successfully, I fired it up today. (after months) To my surprise, I found I had an MX-15 repo. ( non active) Activated the repo & looked at it. Will Those MX-15 snapshots & stuff work with Mepis 12 b2 ?

Re: MX-16.1: Cannot upgrade Liquorix kernel (packages not authenticated)

UPDATE: Just noted something weird about the repo list , don't know if it's related. The MX Repo Manager shows me two test repos: 1) One is in the "mx.list" section. 2) The second one is in a "mxtestrepo.list" section and points to main.mepis-deb.org. Why are there two test repos in the first place...

Re: Firefox options for us Mepis 11 holdouts

Something wrong with your Synaptic settings? I don't know what they'd be. I haven't touched them in ages. Went in a toggled a few things, but it made no difference. It's got me stumped. What's the command for purging the apt cache? UM See if they look like this. (if link works) http://www.mepis.org...
