Re: MX Linux & antiX aren't that good of distros

Have to agree, the future looks bright.

MX-19 with buster and the new XFCE will be awesome.

The beta of antiX 19, already buster, is looking great and bodes well for the MX instantiation.

Re: Taking 3 to 4 minutes to boot during startup. Help

Have you looked into the hard disk model and specs? You can run hdparm -T hdparm -t and see the speed of the drive and the bus it is hooked to. I may be an old crappy 5400 RPM drive, and they can be slow. What about looking in the BIOS for any settings for the drive, there are often options AHCI (?)...

Re: (solved) Recomendation for instalation - new member

There is a difference between suspend and hibernate. I suspend (to RAM) every day, it works well, and resumes fast (4-7 seconds). Hibernate (to disk) is not well supported in MX linux, so there might be problems depending on your hardware and configuration. So, go with suspend to RAM. BTW, I still h...

Re: when will Antix 19 stable get released?

Squirrell, No, I put data on a separate disk and partition all together. Separating the data from the OS makes back-ups easy. I back-up the data drive to a different off line drive, and put an image or snapshot of the MX or antiX install on the data drive. I don't put much in /home. Home gets used a...

Re: when will Antix 19 stable get released?

AntiX 19 is based on debian Buster, it is a very different base. Going from 17 to 19 would be very difficult, not recommended. If you are an expert, and don't mind lots of work, it might be possible with risk of total destruction. It is so easy to install fresh if your data is structured off on a di...

Re: Poll - What kernel are you running?

I am not sure what to put down. The real answer to what kernel are you running is System: Host: Ryzen Kernel: 4.19.18-antix.1-amd64-smp x86_64 bits: 64 Desktop: Xfce 4.12.3 Distro: MX-18.3_x64 Continuum Dec 20 2018 I have the antix 19 beta2 on my testing partition, 5.1.5 from the antiX repo. Just so...

Re: Thunar open as root

As D_O wrote above please remember that antiX uses the user's "sudo" password for most admin tasks instead of the root password like MX. so make sure you are using the correct password. Is there a way to change this so it is the same as MX? The separate root PW is my preference....I know the debates...

Re: Is safe to purge this list of program?

shaunusa3,

Why remove them?
Are you short of disk space?

Many of these programs are small. Maybe gimp is large, but many would take hardly any disk space at all like htop or gcalculator.

namida, I posted my "fix" over at the antiX forum. https://www.antixforum.com/forums/topic/antix-19-b2-full-64-and-32-bit-available/page/10/#post-25073 I installed the beta three times. On the third, I made sure the sound worked live. For my sound chip, and similar to your setup, your video has a so...
