Re: ISO snapshot to launch antix linux 17.3.1

Post the output of sudo iso-snapshot in a terminal

Any reason why you are using 17.3.1 and not 17.4.1 (or is it a typo error?)

Doesn't MX compile their own kernel versions?

If so then "upstream" is kernel.org rather than Debian.
The issue is with the 4.19 MX kernel, not Debian's nor kernel.org's
We own it.
...and (just as importantly) we can fix it too!

Not advised since there are bound to be changes that will not be seen via dist-upgrade eg changes to user config files (since we do not touch the user directory when upgardig via apt).
