MX-17.1 installation: No "badblocks" checking possible unless file system is ext*?

@all: I still had a note here that I took when working on an MX-17.1 test installation. I noted that in the installer, step 2b. Preferences , "☐ Check for badblocks (takes longer)" was an unavailable option unless an ext* file system had been chosen. Anyone who can confirm this? Greetings, Joe

MX-17.1: No check of boot partition's file system integrity when file system was btrfs

@all: Some time ago, I had to hard-reset a test machine, on which MX-17.1 was installed and where btrfs was used as the file system for the boot partition (main partition). Seemed to me that after a new start, there was no automatic check of the file system then. Has anyone seen anything similar on ...

Re: MX-18.2 package request: "LAN-Share" (cross-platform tool for simple LAN transfer of files)

@Stevo: (...) In either direction, the file generation and modification times and dates are changed to download times and dates . In a professional workflow this is like to generate confusion. Would this have to be improved in LAN-Share itself? (...) Is that how they appear in LAN-Share itself, or i...

Re: MX-18.1 package request: "Tribler"

@Stevo, @devos50, @timkb4cq: Just saw that Tribler is now available for further testing via the MX Test Repo . Thanks so much for your help. @devos50: I just noticed that Tribler doesn't get a proper icon in the xfce4-panel (tested on MX-17.1 ). Maybe this is due to the issue with the deprecated men...

Gammu needs a new maintainer (or its current maintainer would have to be convinced to stay)

@all: Gammu is a command line utility for mobile phones, originally code-based on Gnokii , and later on MyGnokii . Gammu was once called MyGnokii2 , and it is the basis for the Wammu phone management GUI . The Wammu-Gammu- combination AFAIK currently is the only solution in the Free/Libre Open Sourc...

@Stevo: Just noticed that Tribler is now available for further testing via the MX Test Repo . Are you sure that you uploaded the latest version you had built?
