Re: Good MX review

I think MX is still largely unknown by the general public, actually that's what increases the number of clicks on DistroWatch. Ubuntu and Debian and the like are well known so people go directly to their sites, no need to search for them on Distrowatch.

Re: LiveCDs and HDDs

You can probably install iotop and run it when this happens and see what is using the HDD. However it might be something else, because it's about 15 to 30 min. and it happens for other distros I wonder if it's not something related to actually stopping the HDD. Also, what do you have on that HDD, do...

Re: MX-19 and systemd

I'm glad we are not ideological driven like antiX and we offer choices to people. In the small poll I created I see that about 10% percent of our users do make use of systemd in one way or another, I'm glad we'll not let them down.

Re: Question about snapshots, persistence, and updates...

Or update and take another snapshot, you can take snapshots from Live environment. MX Live USB Maker (and live-usb-maker CLI tool) actually can clone the USB to another USB flashdrive.

Re: Please DON'T UPDATE

People should update, what they don't need to do is muck up with their sources. Then the Debian warranty applies "if you break it, you get to keep the two pieces" -- which is not that bad as it sounds it's a re-install with preserving the /home so at most a 20-30 min. affair but again, not recommend...

Re: Setting a mountpoint is not possible

I have an existing partion with data on it. I will never ever delete this partion or format it. the partion hast to get the mountpoint /home. Another easier option would be to just mount it in /home/data or something like that (or just create a symlink /home/data to whatever mountpoint you use for ...
