Re: I just updated my system & it completely removed my PIA-VPN install

@1john8989, I've used Air VPN for years, & then moved to PIA, which I think is of the highest quality (even better than Air) so, as far as I'm concerned, I'm not using a poor quality VPN. Re. dissing MX. If you read my posts, I never did. I made it quite clear that I wasn't. So there. [edit:] Beyond...

Re: Debt Free

@Eadwine Rose, it is often VERY windy here. The view out over a lot of water (no wind break) on the windward side, really lets the strong winds that happen around here come roaring in. My caravan is an old piece of junk, that could well do with having its guts ripped out, & being relined, re-floored...

Re: I just updated my system & it completely removed my PIA-VPN install

@fehlix, thanks for your posts, the last one made my PIA-VPN function again after a reboot. :) Re. my move back to Arch we'll see. I've downloaded ArchBang, as it is a whole lot quicker & easier to install Arch that way than the standard method, & it gives you the basics from which to carry on from....

Re: Debt Free

After a complicated story that one of the MX staff said sounded like the story in a country & western song. lol I eventually bought a permanent site with a caravan & a substantial annex (sandwitched polystyrene job) with a bathroom & laundry. With a beautiful river being <20 meters from my front doo...

Re: I just updated my system & it completely removed my PIA-VPN install

@Eadwine Rose, I heard you the first time. & I'll say it again: If I have to use systemd, then I'll use the build it yourself distro of choice, which I consider to be Arch Linux. As the MX system that I use is nothing like the MX system that comes out of the box. OK? I also said that MX is great & t...

Re: I just updated my system & it completely removed my PIA-VPN install

Thanks for your distro & community guys. Both have been very enjoyable & comfortable. :) If I have to go to systemd to get reliability in the crucial software that I use, then I'll go back Arch. The MX system that I use is nothing like your standard install, so I may as well go back to the build it ...

[Solved] I just updated my system & it completely removed my PIA-VPN install

Sorry guys, but I can't handle that. I think I'm going to have to move elsewhere.

I'd rather put up with the unknowns of systemd, than have my VPN removed on me without my permission.
