Re: New Mirror in Mainland China!

Thanks, good thoughts. Short email to an admin would likely work. We tried in the past to do that, but often get no response at all. Might be time to try again, though. There's usually only one person working in that area, though, so we would appreciate any help. I did this before the summer and wa...

Once you get there with your GitHub login, just click like under my request, or write a comment that you would wish this mirror to be made. These 2 mirrors are pretty popular (Tuna in Beijing, USTC in Shanghai) with as it seems every major distro mirrored except ours.
Done! ... and thanks again.

Re: Installer difficulty using two drives.

Progress report:- The installer would not allow me to install on sda - insisted on sdb - so It is now on sdb and I am posting from it now. Two snags so far: first there is only about 3GB free space on my home, and second I don't know how to turn off the b****y "tap to click" in AntiX. No doubt more...

Re: MX and Devuan?

The issue is whether antiX is systemd free or not. It is as shipped. Understood. antiX is systemd-free "as shipped," okay. systemd-free out-of-the-box. But antiX does ship with those repos enabled. 'Nuff said. @manyroads - I don't think your question was "dumb" at all. The part about "or optional b...

Re: MX and Devuan?

It's very simple. Don't install gnome as it is totally entwined with systemd - same with budgie desktop. Do you know a way to install gnome on a debian base without libsystemd0? Added: If we know which app or set of apps install libsystemd0 when doing apt-get install gnome, then we might be able to ...

Re: MX and Devuan?

Antix is not sytemd-free, it has packages that are dependant on libsystemd0. Open the terminal and run on new install apt update && apt install systemd I think that sytemd-free is when all the dependancies from libsystemd0 are removed from the packages. Anticapitalista probably thinks libsystemd is...
