Re: MX17.1 64bit install crashes at installing grub

We had some issues with the installer, can you please try to update it before installing (apt-get update; apt-get dist-upgrade) and let us know if you still see the problem?

Re: Security Issues While Browsing - Errors Not Previously Experienced Before This Week

As of this afternoon none of my Mx17 computers can click on a county on the map without getting the error on the next page. Could someone else confirm that they get the same result? Maybe it's possi...

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.

The change logs are available on the git repos if nothing else.

Re: Changelog for MX packages?

All the packages got updated translations, there are no new features. I am not sure about Synaptic, it would be nice to display the log I will have to check with other people who know more about Debian repos and logs.
