Re: MX17, upgrades (did debian take over the numberings again?)

This update adds retpoline support to the compiler. https://lists.debian.org/debian-security-announce/2018/msg00045.html It's also now in Jessie's gcc-4.9. Retpoline is a hardening technique against Spectre variant 2, so it's possible that our kernel would show better hardening results if we recomp...

Re: can you check the hw components for dell inspiron n7110, and see if mx linux would not have any problems on it?

Try Gentoo or Arch Linux, just make sure you demand the same answers on their forums. The users are much more sweet-natured than us nasty MXers. BTW, Linux usually has less trouble on older machines like a 2011 laptop than a bleeding-edge new one. Where on earth are you getting this information, any...

Re: kernel options

Thanks for the info. It turns out not to be very difficult to set up a pbuilder environment and build something like the Liquorix kernel from the debianized sources with the number of threads that you specify, and even cross-compile (i386 packages on amd64). That's how I'm building Liquorix for our ...

Re: kernel options

How many cores do you have on your Ryzen? How long does it take to build a kernel if you use all of them?

Re: aptx support

Could you explain a bit more about what it is, and what you have already tried to get it working? Also, is it aptx or apx?

Re: MX 15/16 Repository: The OBS Studio Thread

Debian Sid had the latest 21.0.2, so I backported that to the test repository. I also decided to drop the deb-multimedia epoch "1:" at the start of the version to get back in sync with Debian, which means it won't be seen as an upgrade. Users should remove obs-studio, obs-plugins, and libo...
