Re: The end of spinning rust...

For me the best combination is a fast SSD (NVMe PCIE please!)for boot and programs, a large SSD (1TB Samsung SATA) for data, so aside from fans during normal operation there is no spinning to wear bearings and make noise But SSD for back-up, no way, there is an issue with data persistence when power...

Re: Change kernel from default 4.15 to Liquorix 4.17

IANAKE I am not a kernel expert....but using the MX package installer should get you all the packages you need. [edit...oops, I noticed you are not using grub2.

Re: MX-17 package update request: Xfburn

Steveo,

Wow you are an expert, able to dig into the debian stuff and the translation strings.

Re: youtube-dl [SOLVED]

I have to agree with nathan2423, the terminal is so easy, I have a terminal tab open with youtube-dl at the prompt. I find a video I like, I copy and paste the url after a space into the terminal, hit enter, and it's done.
The downloaded file is in my /home directory.

I think there is also a heritage from Mepis and Warren, he was noted for stability, like MX/antiX, the betas are more reliable than a lot of released versions.

Re: new linux mint, behind in xfce compared to MX

I did not mean to say the new mint is bad. I am thankful for those that responded with first hand experience with the new versions. Sounds good, though I have not much time for distro hopping now. My trials of mint were long ago when they first overtook Ubuntu on distro watch. I had problems with th...

Re: hello every one

I knew you would write that Jerry.

And to that I would add, the MX manual (in synergy with this forum) is one of the secret weapons that makes MX linux so powerful.
