Re: What's the meaning behind the codenames for MX and antiX?

heh, can't win. Nothing's safe. All the good words are taken (or tainted).
FYI, 'round hereabouts, "bandicoot" matches the top definition found in urbandictionary https://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Bandicoot

Re: API errors

The topic title claim "API errors", but none are evident in the output you've pasted.
You have not indicated that a problem exists on your system.
Nothing to see here, time to move along....

Re: What's the meaning behind the codenames for MX and antiX?

The prior "word" in my train of thought was epiphany (reaction by emigrants from other operating systems). Wikipedia page mentioned the etymology + Paul's post --} ἐπιφάνεια (and also mentioned Eureka) excerpt from the zap2it (Jan 19, 2018): top-rated (most viewed?) friday night TV shows s...

Re: API errors

Within the scrolling text, perhaps what "caught your eye" was a line mentioning A C PI (not "api") or a line, probably red-colored, mentioning cpufreq. Lines shown in red text, or lines mentioning FAIL, don't necessarily indicate a "problem". Toward providing a one-size...

Re: GPS with geological maps

When you websearched "linux gps geological|geologic|topographical| maps", did you notice the funny-named 'spelunkenfiggen' program but ruled it out because it doesn't suit your needs?

Re: Should MX have apparmor installed and configured by default like Ubuntu?

So are Vanilla Debian and MX, etc. secure even if they don't currently use apparmor, selinux, or similar? If I say "yes", will you believe me? It's sad that folks don't recognize the ridiculousness of posting to ask such vague/overarching questions. Raymzap, please websearch and educate y...

Re: Should MX have apparmor installed and configured by default like Ubuntu?

I'm not sure Raymzap, considering that Ubuntu desktop systems are pre-configured to use password-less sudo it's reasonable to expect that sez-on-the-tin "AppArmor inside!" is primarily marketing hype. If the as-shipped default AppArmor configuration is set to learning mode , it will proba...

Re: Suggestions for Future Versions

P.S. [...] could it be done? (rolling release)
That's an unfair question. As you/we know, OF COURSE the answer is yes.
The next step (if you wish to do so) is to make your case, enumerate the benefits of changing the status quo.
