Re: MX Linux vs Debian

I've always loved Debian, especially for servers, but it's difficult to run on a desktop really. Thanks rootetsy, for confirming the difficulties with Debian. First I thought its something "wrong with me" :(, though I have been using Linux since 1996. But now what you are saying, confirms when Debi...

Re: Major installation issue

Point taken.
Another question: what format does MX installer use (1) same format as existing partition such as reiser4, xfs, fat32, etc. or (2) ext4. If former, could it be that installer doesn't recognise Captain Brillo's partition format?

Re: Major installation issue

Sounds like hard disk problem. Error checking takes time but formatting is fast.

As a point, why the formatting option is not there. Many do partitioning and formatting with Gparted, why formatting again when installing. Most distros have this option not to format.

Re: MX Gnome 3.30 buster Respin (v.05)

Thank you for taking interest in this respin. For some reasons, the frequent downloads or whatever, deleted everything. The website is up again but not the iso. I have updated to version 0.6, which work well. I will upload to another site soon.

PS.
In 80Mb were games and few unrelated tools.
