Re: kernel options

...backporting the 4.17.15 Sid kernel, but I'm not convinced that this new exploit is that much of a threat for desktop Linux users...but it's supposed to be pretty bad for servers.

Re: My PC not booting MX at all (doesn't even get to GRUB)

If those apps save their configuration in your home folder, you can choose to save your home folder if you eventually do chose to do a reinstall. But your error says something about a media error and that you should check the cable--which is weird if you can access your boot drive in a Live session!...

Re: MX 17 Repository: The Backported Debian Kernel Thread

The kernel maintainers issued 4.17.16 and then 4.17.17 in quick succession on Saturday to add some missing code, so we now have updated the backport to the 4.17.17 version in the test repo to include the full mitigation for the newly revealed speculative execution exploits.

Re: MX 17 Repository: The Virtual Box Thread

We now have the latest Virtual Box 5.2.18 packages in the test repo. One improvement that stands out is that guests running the 4.17 kernel are now able to build and use its guest modules successfully.

Re: Opera can't play HTML5 videos on some sites

Nope, and it won't. The solution you pasted comes from an OpenSUSE board, and it looks like OpenSUSE arranges its libs differently than MX. MX doesn't even have a directory called /usr/lib64/, and in /usr/lib/ I find no evidence of a libffmpeg.so. In fact, Catfish found only one libffmpeg.so on my ...

The test indicate that h.264 it is supported, the one not supported is the h.265
Yes, but Firefox doesn't support h.265 either, yet it works there. I don't think many, if any, sites are streaming h.265, and they may never do that if AV1 replaces it as planned.
