Re: rkhunter no long updating under MX Linux

Apparently, it was a change made by the Debian maintainer... I've not got it installed ATM, so I can't check, but try editing the /etc/rkhunter.conf file as follows (you'll need root privileges): Change UPDATE_MIRRORS=0 to UPDATE_MIRRORS=1 MIRRORS_MODE=1 to MIRRORS_MODE=0 WEB_CMD="/bin/false" to WEB...

Re: MX Package Installer not building/rebuilding dkms modules after Kernel install

I can't check this ATM (I'm trying to check different kernels and how they work with my firejail setup, as I think there's compatibility problems with some kernel series), but I think that the /usr/share/mx-packageinstaller-pkglist/rebuild_dkms_packages.sh when it was called, only rebuilt the module...

MX Package Installer not building/rebuilding dkms modules after Kernel install

I mentioned this a while ago, but I seem to remember that it was fixed... but now it's not ;) Example: Already have Kernel 4.9 installed - using MX Package Installer to add Antix kernel... extract from mxpi.log : The following NEW packages will be installed: linux-headers-4.9.91-antix.1-amd64-smp li...

Sorry, I don't have the new version
Just do

Code: Select all

wget -Nc smxi.org/pinxi
in the Terminal, Richard - then run it from that directory so it doesn't affect your installed version

I already posted the result with the 4.9 series Kernel...

Re: Thunar won't let me change folder permissions.

I had a good look around the web a while ago, and this "bug" has persisted for years. It affects every Filemanager - Nautilus and all of it's forks (Nemo, Caja, etc) and Dolphin. It doesn't affect the Terminal, which is why I recommended Midnight Commander (and why pcmanfm was recomended by @kc1di)....

Re: Thunar won't let me change folder permissions.

The easiest/quickest fix (workaround) to USB drives becoming read only is to use Midnight Commander (which is already installed), it's quicker than a reboot... the bug only seems to affect Thunar (and IIRC Nautilus etc)
