Re: MX 17/18 Repository: The Spectre-Meltdown-Checker Thread

If "uname -a" shows kernel version 4.19.0-1 (4.19.5) or earlier, use MX Package Installer to reinstall or install the 4.19 kernel, which will update to the current 4.19.0-5 (4.19.37) MX kernel. Great! Thank you so much Stevo. Following your advice on updating the kernel, all is green here: SUMMARY:...

Re: Iridium browser workaround: putting security at risk?

I can run it with the Liquorix kernel without disabling the sandboxing. I think that's a common issue with Chromium-based browsers like Iridium and the Debian kernels. Thank you so much Stevo for your kind advice and I do apologize for my late response. Since my OP I have had to redo my MX Linux in...

Re: Iridium browser workaround: putting security at risk?

Hi all, I'm still a bit preoccupied by this issue. I have used Iridium since I got it installed but if it would mean a decrease in the security of the system for having enabled kernel.unprivileged_userns_clone then I think I would give up on Iridium and revert the changes. I would really appreciate ...

After the command "sudo mount -a" the disk is mounted without errors.
Do you have r/w access to the device now?

Re: external hard disk NTFS not automatically mounted

Make a backup of your current fstab first: sudo cp /etc/fstab /etc/fstab.bckp Unmount the device from file manager if it is mounted. Then change the following line in fstab: UUID=605EC5CC11E45BE6 /mnt/backup auto nosuid,nodev,nofail,x-gvfs-show,x-gvfs-name=backup,users,noatime,ntfs-3g 0 0 to UUID=60...
