Re: where is message after bash login defined

Mail message is set up in .bashrc like this: If this parameter is set to a file name and the MAILPATH variable is not set, bash informs the user of the arrival of mail in the specified file. MAILCHECK Specifies how often (in seconds) bash checks for mail. The default is 60 seconds. When it is time t...

Re: Please translate 9 words for gazelle-installer

Yeah... the problems of gendered languages. In Romanian partition is feminin so I used "niciuna", so I recommend "nessuna" for Italian. There might be some words that don't need translation, I might have to mark them as non-translatable, partition types for example, ext2, ext3, btrfs, don't think th...

Re: Auto install updates?

So in a nutshell, the auto update uses apt upgrade, so doing a full-upgrade and/or auto-remove once in a while is necessary. Does the updater notify you of this when the time comes? In the few months since I switched to MX, haven't had one bad update (I do stick to the stable repositories though). ...

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...
