Re: MX 17 Repository: The Pale Moon Browser Thread

MX-16_fan - >Master Password and passwords I remember researching this several years ago. (I realize we are discussing Pale Moon ...) Back in the day, one needed a master password to encrypt the passwords. This is from 2009: https://luxsci.com/blog/master-password-encryption-in-firefox-and-thunderbi...

Re: MX Updater: Full vs. Basic Update?

As someone who is still trying to understand the basics, a tooltip would be very helpful. I like the idea of adding "recommended for" (newcomers vs experienced) in the tooltip. [ADDED] An example of the difference: say an installed package ABC has an update to a new version. This new version has new...

Re: MX-17 Live USB unable to create persistence files during boot

Sandisk drives (specifically, "Sandisk Ultra Fit" drives) have been found to be problematic Before starting this process, I had been taking notes from the manual (and antiX's info), this forum and antiX's forum, and dolphin_oracle's excellent videos.

MX-17 Live USB unable to create persistence files during boot

I have MX-17 installed on an old Dell Vostro laptop. (Before I installed MX-17, I had MX-16 installed. The MX-17 was a fresh install.) I decided to try the Live USB feature (something I have wanted to do for awhile). I created a Snapshot of my installation. I chose Preserving accounts. I used Live U...

Re: Would MX-17 be easier on SSD than Windows?

vksan, Yes they are internal drives, but switched. I made wiring harnesses that turn the 5 and 12V (red and yellow) on or off with a key switch which I mounted on the front of the case.

Re: MX-17 and systemd, just curious..

My copy / paste didn't work like I thought it would (I was hoping the columns from the table would be preserved), so I will try again:

Feature 17-beta3
Init Software systemd

Only systemd is listed in Init Software for 17-beta3.
