Re: The old ones are the best ;)

Yeah, I used to like Jasper Carrot. Although rather unfashionable in these times of "Political correctness", I also liked Bernard Manning, not a "nice" man, but could make me cry with laughter. (I won't post any links, as most of my favourite jokes are not for the young or faint-hearted ;))

Re: Magazine's approval!

Onwards and upwards... Although I'd probably favour Antix over MX for limited hardware; I see no reason MX shouldn't be up in the "Beginner" category as well. And thinking about it... the way the devs "work their socks off" keeping packages up-to-date (backporting from Buster etc), it could probably...

Re: The old ones are the best ;)

OK, I thought maybe others would add a few jokes... I was wrong ;) I'll add one more oldie and I'll quit: ------------------------------------------------------ I saw this very elderly man sitting by the side of the road, crying. "What's wrong, mate; are you OK?", I asked. He shook his head. "Nowher...

The old ones are the best ;)

This may not work, but I had 10 minutes to waste ;) I was at the Airport when I saw this man struggling with two huge suitcases... dragging them behind him, each arm dragging a suitcase. But he seemed happy enough, and I wanted to know the time... so I asked him. He stopped - tapped his Watch - said...

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
