Re: MX 15/16 Repository: The Ksnip Thread

MX 16 still has Qt 5 5.3, but 1.4 will only build if you have Qt 5>= 5.4, so that means Stretch/MX 17.

Re: Creeping system failure since update.

Odds are it's particular to your machine, not due to updates that many others have already installed. Can you boot with to a live session and check the health of your hard drive with either smartmontools or gsmartcontrol?

Re: MX-17 Beta 2 Feedback

...main 375.82 Nvidia driver has no problem with the 4.13 kernel Yes. Got no problem with it on 4.13 kernel. Since backported nvidia driver appears to me bit newer I choose the one with 375.82- 8 ~bpo9+1 name. Not from main repo. And what's the difference between those main's and bpo's versions? Gr...
