Re: 2.4 ghz router issues

Radio interference is a pain to locate. I'm a Ham Operator and have to deal with it from internally and externally (neighbors). A bad fan motor in your house or on someone's vehicle can send weird radio signals. Even a bad motor on a ceiling fan can cause interference. You simply have to go piece by...

Re: How many people using Windows 10 in here?

My wife's laptop has Win 8.1, and my main AMD desktop has Win 7. But those are kept because of proprietary programs that have to have windoze. And with no Linux version available, you are stuck. But my laptop has Antix-16 and MX-16 as dual-boot as so does my main AMD desktop. From what I had read ab...

Re: Fuzzy Wallpaper

I too have experienced the Fuzzy Wallpaper at times. I traced it down to the resolution and size the picture was originally saved. [I do some photography and tend to save my photos as RAW, which gives me HUGH files. Then I name and re-save at a size I can use, like 1024 x 683.] JPGs saved at 600 dpi...

Re: antiX alpha 2 net images 'stretch' versions available

Dolphin does an excellent job of telling you how to do it. It is one thing to say do this, then this, then this. But Dolphin explains what and why so it makes sense.

Re: Will there ever be a systemd free MX linux ?

@roky---Hope you get better soon. I'm fighting this crud too here in Cajun Land. I've been one of those distro hoppers, installing as many as 8 different distros on my MSI machine. When systemd decides to break, it's BROKE. Whereas with AntiX and MX-Linux, they simply work all the time. I must spend...

Re: Make forum HTTPS-only

I've been using HTTPS for years and have found that some websites do require a fresh login (even after saving the link after I originally logged in). I think that part of this is from the website itself being set up as a security measure. I haven't researched to find out why. I just put up with it.

Re: BIOS update allows Linux install on Lenovo Yoga 900

We all know the "Big Boys" just want their OS and software to be used. But there are still people who can figure out how to bypass the hardware confines. These people are the heroes of today.
