Re: MX-Linux 17 release

The release notes mention "persistence (up to 20GB!)". in an earlier reference I had read "up to 6GB".

Is the 20GB cap due to technical (squashfs?) limitation, or does it just represent the largest choice offered via the app's gui?

Re: MX-17 Release Candidate 1 - Feedback

Live USB Maker creates Live USB thumb drives from MX and antiX isos. It does not usually work for other OS's About a year ago, my testing indicated otherwise. For isohybrid ISOs distributed by other distros, Live USB Maker created a bootable pendrive for all except one (11of12 tested? or 9of10?). F...

Re: MX-17 Release Candidate 1 - Feedback

(ties up) an entire flash drive This overlaps the pain point I mentioned regarding mxsnapshot. A live user winds up needing an extra, separate, device (linuxfs + rootfs + apt upgrade = too large to fit in RAM, so cannot "toram" then unmount and repartition the boot device) edit: Zzzzz, Re...

Re: "man init" reports that MX init is systemd?

instead of chasing blame, howabout fix0r in /etc/skel/.bashrc and put it to bed

Code: Select all

man() {
    if [[ $@ == "init" ]]; then
        command man telinit
    else
        command ls "$@"
    fi

Re: Transferring photos via camera better than directly from CF card?

meaning, e.g., that photo software would get, for example, additional information from the camera itself which is not stored in the files on the CF card. Either method yields an identical result. There's no "additional information" to be had ~~ the metadata is contained within the header ...
