Re: Not safe.

You too, eh? Even though I'm more disabled than retired. I've seen 4WD trucks with little highway tires before, but not that extreme. Living in Colorado, I never saw the sense of putting highway tires on a 4X4, but then "sense" is getting kinda rare... :rock: :lion: Yes, to make it short. I have ne...

Re: Wow, fancy that. Web ad giant Google to block ad-blockers in Chrome. For safety, apparently

Google is not doing that for safety. Google is doing that because it interferes with it's spying. Google can't be trusted. Google is worse than the NSA with their spying because at least the NSA doesn't sell your data that they stole from you unlike Google who sells people's data.

Re: Could not open \EFI\BOOT\fallback.efi": 14

I suggest you download from one of the mirrors closest to you and make sure you check the checksums and signature afterwards. https://mxlinux.org/wiki/system/iso-download-mirrors

Re: New Linux user, mx good for start?

I actually have poured gasoline on a computer and incinderated it, after bashing it to pieces with a hammer. I was really ticked off that horrible day, when the computer simply refused to do anything I asked. You exist to do what I say, you @#$%ing piece of %$#$@. If you won't do what I say, you ha...

Re: Newbie Here

After trying multiple distros, one of the best things about MX is this forum. Another good forum, which is also low on flaming, is "linuxquestions.org" Beware those forums where they spend most of their time complaining that some body else already posted/answered your question, and don't answer it....

Re: New Linux user, mx good for start?

Well, that is assuming you don't manually enable or disable repositories on your own accord. ;) We also assume you don't pour gasoline over your computer and set it on fire. :hot: No, but it sounds like this person poured gasoline into a diesel computer. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uC68YZ_P9zQ

Re: This is very disturbing - I think? - where to post?

Please be assured if you are using MX linux. MX is the system you can trust. If the post is right it may be due to some additional ppa the user may installed there in ubuntu and as of here in mx you are not to worry about it as mx is not supporting Ubuntu ppas and we at MX always say that to new us...

Re: System freezes - what to do?

Perhaps a silly question: those nvidia cards seem to cause nothing but problems for people - why does anyone use them? Are they that good? Allegedly Nividia is suppose to make the best performing video cards. What good is a video card when it causes more trouble than you can shake a stick at? How c...
