Re: Semi-Rolling

I don't really consider MX any sort of rolling because the base does not change, and any new packages are not from Debian Testing. MX Test Repo is not Debian Testing. Debian Backports repo is not Debian Testing. Any so-called new packages from upstream, whether they be from Debian Backports or built...

Re: libreoffice

+1 to Eadwine Rose's post. There is nothing stopping any user from making their own minimalist/core version from MX-live by removing and installing whatever you want on the live boot, and then remastering it so that the live USB is now the core version. Using that, one can then install your core ver...

Re: MX-18 RC1 Feedback

Regarding the installer's new interface for the root/home/swap/boot partition settings, I suggest that the "none" option in the swap dropdown menu be changed to "none or use existing" . As I recall, this was the original description in the previous interface, so that users understood that they could...

Re: libreoffice

MX Linux was always meant to be a full-featured OOTB distro. The idea is that upon installation, everyday users should have all the usual sort of programs necessary to carry out regular tasks like viewing, editing and creating documents. It is not meant to be a bare bones distro. In any case, choice...

This morning. You might want to change mirrors, however--have looked at the 70 mirrors listed in Repo Manager? Or, have you used the button to find the fastest repo?
How do you use the Repo Manager to choose a different download mirror for an RC iso found on sourceforge Test folder?

Re: (solved)live-usb-maker does not work for me

Here's the log. COuld it be because there is a space between the 2 words in my folder called "Linux Downloads"? But note that the deprecated live-usb-maker-gui works with this folder. Could you try with the iso in another folder with no spaces and see if it still fails. OK, looks like it works in a...

Re: (solved)live-usb-maker does not work for me

I don't have an antiX installation at the moment, so I don't know. I'm referring to the dd option, by the way. MX-LUM's dd functionality does not work for me, while the dd option in live-usb-maker-gui does, on the same USB stick. That's strange, can you use the new MX-LUM I posted with logging enab...
