Re: MX16 install fails to boot

That has clarified things considerably. I had already disabled secure boot previously, so that wasn't a problem. I tried disabling UEFI boot and choosing the alternative (legacy) boot instead. That worked, so out of interest I tried reinstalling with GRUB to esp and enabling UEFI in the bios. That ...

Re: MX16 install fails to boot

The next thing to check double is your system settings and make sure that secure boot is turned off. its probably somewhere in your UEFI settings in your "bios". the live system can boot with secure boot enabled, but the installed system can't. its a design "feature" of Secure Bo...

Re: Compositor Vs Compton ??

as with all things...depends on the hardware. I tend to use the xfce compositor. however, if you want to try compton, may I suggest our MX-Compton utility, which takes some of the busy work out of compton for you. and enables a nice easy way to enable and disable compton and autostart compton if you...

Re: MX Freezing a lot

I have not install that much just . . . systemd-logind obeid, please read MX Linux Wiki : systemd @MX devs: please (re)consider pinning systemd* packages to preclude accidental/unwitting installation. its not a mistake. mx installs systemd by default. we just don't use it for init, largely to maint...

Re: RAID 0

at this time you cannot install onto a raid 0 array even if you configure it in a live session before launching the installer. the installer (actually a sub-app called partition-info) doesn't give md0p1 devices as an option. md* device names don't make it past the filter in partition-info, and thus...

Re: help with decision

I am concerned about whether my laptop has enough room to accommodate MX since it only has a 20 GB Hard Drive. Approximately, how much space does MX take on the hard drive? I haven't been able to find the system requirements on the website. Thanks you can install on 6gb drive. after that its whatev...
