Re: md5sum /var/lib/apt/lists/*** high system HDD usage spikes

The apt-notifier gets a hash (md5sum) of the /var/lib/apt/lists/* files every couple minutes and compares them to a previous hash to see if it needs to do some further checking if updates are available. I could probably have it compare hashes of directory listings instead of hashing individual file...

Re: Canonical Extends Ubuntu Support

Why not, Adrian? If it's awesome, safe, and up-to-date, I wouldn't change anything for 10 years, maybe longer. Because users care about newer software, especially browsers, and in general things that change a lot, a "supported" release for 10 years means that you get the security updates but not mu...

Re: MX and Devuan?

I don't think MX devs in general see systemd as the devil, we actually offer a choice to boot either to sysV init and to systemd, I personally have no interest in Devuan. Seems to me like a wrong idea and wrong execution. I suggest people who have strong opinions about systemd use Devuan instead of ...

Re: MX Cleanup

Good point, I have made a modification, added "Don't empty" option for Trash, logs, and apt cache. I will push it once I get the translations updated.

Re: No swap => needed to reset computer

but in my case mkswap /dev/sda4 shown me different UUID than blkid /dev/sda4 , so unsure which one to use.
You don't have to use UUID you can use /dev/sd4 in place of UUID like this:

Code: Select all

/dev/sda4 swap     swap     defaults     0 0
Or find out the UUID with "blkid" command.
