Re: MX-18_January_x64 ISO issues

This may take a little while to sort out. I'm glad it installed eventually, even if it was a little ugly...

OK. Thanks, and will do.
as a bonus, and since the Live-USB-Storage folder sits outside the home persistence file, its also accessible from any system that can read the USB.

Re: MX-18_January_x64 ISO issues

Just to make certain there was no problem with the ISO, I downloaded it and did a test install successfully. Chris we've encountered a problem in 2 spots. 1 is at the grub install screen, where for some reason the installer crashes before grub install is finished. we had this very early in mx18 dev...

Re: Home size on persistent live usb

I suggest moving any mass storage needs into the "Live-USB-Storage" folder inside the home folder, which is actually a bind-mount that accesses the rest of the USB storage.

Re: No sound from Firefox after installing mx18

pulseaudio can do this stuff on an app by app basis.

Is there a way to enable nvenc on OBS because from default I can only select x264
I don't know much about OBS, but have you installed the nvidia drivers? the nvnenc libraries should be installed automatically if you use our nvidia-installer tool (ddm-mx)
