Re: Running MX USBw/persistence from Virtualbox - Like DolphinOracle does in the videos

You will need both an iso and the matching usb.

Boot the iso. Use the “from=usb” boot code and make sure the usb is available to virtual box. The iso will start the boot then hand off to the usb.

Re: This is Weird

I would guess that its not actually a priority but actually some kind of short in the wiring. I had to disconnect the usb2 ports on my desktop PC because if I brushed up against them the machine would reboot. I've got a laptop where the center usb3 port doesn't work but the ports on either side do.

Re: Upgrade from terminal 19.4 to 21 grub issue

its just string. the name is set by /etc/default/grub based on what's in /etc/lsb-release.

which I just realized I haven't sent the updated mx-system that changes those strings...silly me.

Re: MX-21 "ahs" (Xfce) RC1 feedback

@davemx what kernel did you upgrade to.

I think when the display driver crashes, lightdm reverts to resolutions provided by the framebuffer of the hardware. On my laptop, that is a fairly low resolution and lightdm shows up larger than the available display, so most of my items push off screen.

Re: Virtualbox Hangs at 20% Loading

the virtualbox module might not like that rt kernel you have. that's a guess.
