Re: Advice needed

I think latest Windows 10 should be able to activate automatically, you can download Windows 10 create the USB bootable medium with MS tool (on a different Windows machine) and re-install it. I think if you logged in with your MS account you should recover your activation -- don't promise that though.

Re: Wow, somebody was busy uploading our ISOs to archive.org

Is there any way to delete from archive an upload or it goes against what archive.org is supposed to be?

Re: Suggestions about USB live Maker

That particular option is not available right now in the GUI program, I will add it after the MX-18 released (not much time now to add the translations).

Re: MX-18 beta 1 feedback

We don't want to shout at people, those are listed in MX Welcome and in manual, if one cannot find those easy options then it's pretty much a lost cause. It might affect some superficial reviewers but I'm not that concerned that our users will miss that if they do minimum due diligence.

Re: MX18b1x64 Boot Options change not sticking? SOLVED

Right fehlix, I remembered now about that submenu issue. It threw me off that this was a reported as a new MX-18 problem when it works (doesn't) exactly the same in MX-17. Not sure how I can parse the grub.conf to get the parent menu ID... I will see what I can do, not my biggest priority at the mom...

How to move the Panel is now the top item in the FAQ list at the top of the new Welcome screen. If they will not bother to look at the FAQs, never mind the Manual, then we can't help them.

Re: Wow, somebody was busy uploading our ISOs to archive.org

Can you regenerate isos from burned CDs? I think I might still have some old MEPIS CDs around here somewhere, like 2003.10 and SimplyMepis2004. You of course you need to simply use dd. dd if=/dev/cdrom of=/path/to/cdcopy.iso (that might copy extra padding so the checksum might differ from the origi...

Re: MX-18 beta 1 feedback

BTW we have copy_initrd_modules and copy-initrd-programs in cli-shell-utils (usr/local/lib/cli-shell-utils/bin) which is a depencency of live-usb-maker so we don't need copy_initrd_modules and copy-initrd-programs in snapshot.
