Re: Noob suggestions for sizes of rootfs and homefs?

For home think how much data you'll need to save, that's pretty much your space and your decision 1GB might be enough, root has to account for package updates and new packages you install. 2GB should probably be fine -- again depending on what you want to install.

Re: Changelog for MX packages?

Re: MX-Cleanup won't run twice

qdirstat is very nice if we get more testing we should move it from test repo to regular mx repo. I like the idea to give people option to use the tool they prefer. I also like ncdu but it's a terminal app that doesn't really fit with the GUI we try to build (it might be a better choice for antiX fo...

Re: World Cup 2018

The Germany-Mexico game was awful. While Mexico did play well, I don't know why Germany even bothered to show up for the game with how poorly they played. That's how it looks when you meet a better team, or a team that has a style that can annihilate your style, sometimes is luck -- I don't count G...

Re: Stevo's MX16-KDE: strange issue with root password
