Re: Distrowatch reveiw grumbles

That is what I got at http://ftp.acc.umu.se/mirror/mxlinux.org/packages/ That's just when those folders were created not when they were updated. I think it's a confusion here, there was another Swedish repo that we dropped http://se.mirror.mxlinux.de/packages the new one the one I linked to should ...

Re: Distrowatch reveiw grumbles

Which Sweden repo? This one should work I think: http://ftp.acc.umu.se/mirror/mxlinux.org/packages that's what we have in MX Repo Manager, let me know if that doesn't work well and we can take it out. The index of that mirror shows nothing later than 2016 Are you sure, I see files updated on 2018-0...

Re: Snapshot mx17

It should come soon as an update from the repo, I already sent it to Tim, the code change is not big and it tested fine.

Re: RIP RobLimo

Rest in peace! My condolences to his family and friends.

Many people here might know about Roblimo because he wrote Point & Click Linux (which included SimpleMEPIS).

Re: Snapshot mx17

ans the below here is not any more default ( old until now) ( I mean within you current program), right?
It should still work because I linked that file to the old location.

Re: Snapshot mx17

The problem if you import an extra list is that it's not overwriting things in the current one, you can add exclusions, but you cannot comment out an exclusion, so I think a better thing would be to have another file that has precedence over /etc/mx-snapshot-exclude.list (this is the new location in...

Re: Snapshot mx17

An alternative approach would be to have a default user-exclude-list definable within mx-snapshot-exclude.list something like ~/.config/mx-snapshot-user-exclude.list. It's a great idea to have a file like that that overrules the /etc/mx-snapshot-user-exclude.list so if one has a ~/.config/mx-snapsh...

Re: Mx Live Usb Maker

No worries... sometimes the terminology gets in the way, it's a problem that "snapshot" might mean many more things, like a btrfs snapshot or screen snapshot... I'm open to suggestions how to make this tool popular. It's not quite cloning, also the tool has the option to generalize the snapshot with...

Re: Snapshot mx17

@Adrian, Would it be possible to include a query about over-writing the exclusion file? Just installed the new build and have to add in all my exclusions, again. I guess I'll learn to make a backup of it. :) Sorry about this. I think the exclusion file should be in /etc so the DPKG would ask you if...
