Re: AMD 7680 does not boot MX-18.1 March snapshot

MX-15_386_CORE_Nov_2016_v2 from mxrepo.com was also fully installed last month to the AMD Carrizo 7680 desktop. Am standing by for MX-19 hoping it is a compatible replacement. After following the instruction for the MX-15_16 Expired Key issue, I was able to obtain VLC 2.2.7 for the Pentium M (USB fl...

Re: Stranger Things fans around?

The fabulous 1980s. MX was a military program for moving ICBMs underground. There have only been good reviews for this show.

Re: Who runs MX from USB and why?

Unable to replace bad EIDE hdd on old laptop. Used its CD drive to install MX-15-Core-32 on the root partition of a USB 2 flash. Operates better than the hdd and boots on all computers it's been tried on.

Re: AMD 7680 does not boot MX-18.1 March snapshot

I installed as a full system the MX-15 Core (CD) respin on the USB-2 stick that had AntiX-17 Base on duty on a Pentium M-Dothan laptop for more than two years. This was done on an AMD Kabini desktop and right after that it was plugged to the laptop to see old Linux 3.16.0-4-686-pae work its magic. S...

Re: Lubuntu vs antiX: what is the best lightweight distribution?

I have just downloaded MX-15 Core-32 for trial on the Pentium M-Dothan and to test another machine. 15 was the system before the now rare EIDE drive gave up and when I shifted to 16-USB it crawled/froze. AntiX-17 Base-32 solved that. I suspect MX-16 signified the jump from the lightweight division t...

Re: Lubuntu vs antiX: what is the best lightweight distribution?

Pentium M 1.6 GHz, 2x512mb DDR2-533, dead drive.

Would have been scrapped if not for AntiX-17 32-bit Base on USB2 flash. Palemoon is good up to four tabs only. Apache Open Office is just fine. Native media also good enough. Specs higher than this point to the latest MX.

Re: AMD 7680 does not boot MX-18.1 March snapshot

I could borrow a Radeon 6570 from another unit to prove j2mcgreg right more than a week from now. The APU has theoretically stronger graphics than the proven Kaveri A8-7600, all at a lower TDP of 45 watts, which discourages me from resorting to a permanent discrete solution. But there will be a way....

Re: AMD 7680 does not boot MX-18.1 March snapshot

I have several old installation CDs from my bygone distro hopping years so I tried spinning a handful on the Carrizo 7680. Partition Magic halted booting on a video mode issue while Simplicity-Puppy went all the way. MX-16 ended up just like MX-18.1 did last March. AntiX-17 Base got to the desktop (...

Re: Minimum system specs and maxi

On the subject of processors, I've had MX-15 resuscitate a non-hyperthreaded Pentium 4 and Pentium M-Dothan. Though the latter is a laptop that could not handle MX-16 (Firefox froze a lot) so its USB stick system became AntiX plus Palemoon while the latter quit POSTing long ago. Back when it still h...

Re: AMD 7680 does not boot MX-18.1 March snapshot

Being bandwidth-thrifty I use mxrepo.com/snapshots/?C=M;O=D to select the most recent iso and also because I am hopeful there might be a tinier Core or Base respin inside. I see in another thread that Stevo has Liquorix 5.0.7 up but I think the fixes are limited to Nvidia graphics. Carrizo-7680 star...
