Re: MX 18.3 USB boots on Lenovo x200s, but not on x200t

I'm not an expert, but I have had several Thinkpads, the one closest to yours' being the X201 and T410. So I'm interested in your issue. If, as it looks like, you have the GMA X3100 video driver, it is known to have issues with a kernel newer than 4.18: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linu...

Re: I keep gettting "broken packages"error, but have no broken pkgs

If you do a new install, here is a list of spins with the MATE spin: https://forum.mxlinux.org/viewtopic.php?f=100&t=48617&p=486469&hilit=mx+mate+spin#p486469 I would not enable Debian backports unless you have a very good reason to do so. I've broken installs that way even though it should be 'safe...

Re: Can we get a "NEWBIE" section

Perhaps a work-around might be to include 'Newbie' in the title of any query? I've been here a while, but still consider myself at the earliest stages of learning, so would be more inclined to look at a query that I might be able to answer, in a way that someone at my level might understand.

Re: Ubuntu style sudo? One password for login and admin tasks in MX linux

I do use separate passwords for root and user on my server. There are instances where that is a good idea.

Re: Anyone buying the new Rpi 4?

They are very good in that respect; an unexpected use of them is in industrial applications, and they have proved themselves up to the task. One of mine has been on 24/7 for about two years, another for three years. The first is in the open, sat on top of an SSD, the second is in an enclosure just ...

Re: Anyone buying the new Rpi 4?

@KBD, re. their reliability - If I'm using one as a server, then I will have a complete 2nd system laying about. The price point is so low, that I consider this an affordable option. I'd also have a copy of my server system backed up (likely in multiple places, & at least one spare microSD card & p...

I was notified that my 4Gb model was shipped today, as long as the Royal Mail do their job - I hope to get it tomorrow.

I think they are very reliable, they don't have any moving components and usually people leave them on which avoids the power on/off spikes, as long as you keep them cool enough they should work for a looooong time.
Thanks Adrian!

Re: Anyone buying the new Rpi 4?

@KBD, I was initially attracted by the low electricity usage. I think they "can" be a good NAS controller solution. Though I've found the 3B+ to be underpowered for my needs, it looks like the 4 really should be ideal. Beyond that, they are something that is cheap enough to buy, that runs on Linux ...
