Re: What init system do you use on MX, the default (sysVinit) or systemd?

Yeah, or "ps -p1" if you see "init" in output it's sysvinit, if you see "systemd" guess what...

I was just there and saw that. MX is far ahead on the 3 month average.
But way *way* behind on 12 months... :bawling:

:number1:
That's OK, by the time we get on top for the 12 month we'll deserve it. :happy:

Re: {Solved} More from Dedo

Since this is solved can this thread be put to rest and concentrate on other things?

Re: Comments on MX-18.2 MX-Tools > Live Usb Maker > Clone running live system

Boot with BIOS-legacy you should see the boot menu that you are used with.

I think you need that small UEFI partition for computers that can boot only UEFI -- it's a feature :cool:

Re: Live USB with persistance

but the usb stick (32 Gb) is not writable so it asks to me where to save.
How did you create the USB stick? Did you use live-usb-maker (or GUI mx-live-usb-maker)? If you used dd or other way to write the stick it might create a useless stick (from the POV of persistency).

Re: Why do most distros use grub(?).

Besides the technical reasons provided about It might also be because GRUB is a GNU project... many distros give GNU programs priority.

Re: Issue with fstab after reinstall

It's not really a boot problem, there could be a "fix_fstab" tool or something like that, but then this can get a bit complicated depending on what you want to fix and configuration (encrypted or not), I think it needs to be fixed with a lower-level, a CLI tool not in a GUI one.

Re: Issue with fstab after reinstall

Your root partition was reformatted and this changed the UUID so /etc/fstab was incorrect.
That's obvious, I don't understand how come /etc/fstab was not changed at reinstall... how did you install? Where did you run this command "mount -o remount,rw /" in recovery mode?

Re: More from Dedo

I agree, but this bugs me a bit.

Even that was true in the past I don't like to over-promise things.
