Re: Full upgrade

Just as a general question, with updates on MX 17, I always do the full upgrade which I guess is equivalent to the terminal command 'sudo apt upgrade'. No problem but why would it be recommended in this Debian based distro when it's definitely not recommended in Mint which uses Ubuntu? They claim i...

Auto updating is a scary proposition, even for a distro built on Debian Stable. There is always the odd chance an update will remove something important and bork your system.
apt-get upgrade never removes or adds packages, that's only apt-get dist-upgrade and we don't run that by default.

Re: Monthly snapshot announcement

I built the zsync, it's really easy, you just run "zsyncmake -e filename" and it takes seconds... you just need the server to support fragment downloading (I think mxrepo.com doesn't) I would really like to take Fehlix script and modify it a bit make it more general and put in the download folder of...

Re: World Cup 2018

This was a fun World Cup, I thoroughly enjoyed it, I'm so happy the final didn't end to be a terse boring 1-0 with a team scoring from a dubious offside position or getting a goal when the ball didn't cross the goal line or if it was pushed in the net with the hand...

Re: Solved - Are there still monthly updated releases?

No problem, it will come probably tomorrow or the day after, I'm waiting for some translations in MX-Packageinstaller (categories and package descriptions will get translations).

Re: Are there still monthly updated releases?

It's never been an antiX monthly snapshot as far as I know, I do the monthly MX snapshots (one is coming tomorrow with Debian 9.5 updates). It's not really an effort, I started the monthly snapshot as a showcase of how easy is to take snapshots in MX. AntiX people should be able to do something simi...

Re: Debian 9.5 updates coming in today...

The easiest way to fix this is to reboot the machine once the installation has finished.
So, did it work after a reboot?

Re: Screen times out after 10minutes

Go to Settings, search for Screensaver select Disable Screensaver or change the time options there, I think that's where it comes from.

Re: truncated test repo

I doesn't look like it's a problem with the program itself, this is the list in mxrepo.com http://mxrepo.com/mx/testrepo/dists/str ... 4/Packages
EDIT: I see Tim's on it. We'll have to wait a bit.
