Re: Installing MX Linux on my laptop

I agree with Stevo and Fehlix...

Here's a suggested partitioning scheme:
128 GB SSD drive:
  • 110 GB for MX-Installer (/, /var, /temp...and the rest )
  • 8 GB SWAP (if you have 8G RAM)

    1 TB HDD drive:
  • 985 GB /home

Re: Wow, somebody was busy uploading our ISOs to archive.org

Is there any way to delete from archive an upload or it goes against what archive.org is supposed to be? I found that I could delete files from an archive and add them, but could not find a way to delete the archive itself. I eventually discovered that this feature does not exist for ordinary users...

Re: MX-18 beta 1 feedback

Paul, So you have total >25 hours with the idle current typical setting with different kernels, and no rcu_nocbs. That is encouraging. I crashed with the antix kernel AND rcu_nocbs, so.... Last night I installed the latest BIOS (4024) and rebooted with the idle current set to typical (default was A...

Are you logging into the xfce GUI as root by any chance? Instead of logging into xfce GUI as a normal user?

Re: MX18b1x64 Boot Options change not sticking? SOLVED

Thanks for report, that's strange though, why would it boot to 4.19.7 if grub.cfg is set to boot 4.19.4 kernel? Is grub.cfg still set to default="gnulinux-4.19.4-antix.1-amd64-smp-advanced-1537137d-e810-4a32-95bb-26644251f5f1"? Yup...definitely weird. Still calling for 4.19.4... set default="gnulin...

Adrian, I can confirm the same...I've been testing a lot of kernels for stability on this new motherboard Example: - Installed new kernel 4.19.7-antix.1-amd64-smp - Ran MX Boot Options and selected "MX Continuum, with Linux 4.19.4-antix.1-amd64-smp" ...Apply - Checked /boot/grub/grub.cfg...set defau...
