Re: MX 18 Does not shutdown/reboot

I suspect you have seriously damaged your installation.
Suggest that you make a backup of data you wish to keep and reinstall.

MX is designed to use SysVinit by default; running systemd puts you into experimental territory.

My MX-18_amd64 install starts fast and shuts down even faster.

"Authentication needed to run `/bin/sh' as super user" RESOLVED

I get this message at boot time on the T430. Not really sure why or what it is for. Details Action: org.freedesktop.policykit.exec Vendor: The PolicyKit Project Could it be from trials and removing unused apps? I'll keep running without Authentication and see if I get others. Just noticed this morni...

Re: MX18 Continuum (Minimal) Release

I ran it on both 32 & 64 bit installs without exploding.
Everything seems fine.
Snapshot on 32 bit down to 1.18 GB from 1.4 GB.
Will see how the 64 bit does. (MX-18 now creates a snapshot in about 20 minutes.)

Re: MX18 Continuum (Minimal) Release

Here's my final, I hope, modification of your script to reduce the size and configure my installs. Perhaps it is just a base install for my use; although, others might find it helpful. #!/bin/bash # MX-Minimal-base-7.sh # from @manyroads original MX-Minimal-script.sh, dated: 2019 Jan 19 # mods by Ri...

Re: MX18 Continuum (Minimal) Release

Thanks, Mark. Internet down --using cell phone hotspot. I'm finding the script to be of great service in creating my ideal of a smaller install for 32 bit. I also apply a modified version to my installed 64 bit to reduce the size of the snapshot --I can keep all my additions while building a smaller...

Re: MX Distro for "not new" users

I understand the frustration of the command line from my first days with a Commodore64. Even took it back to the store because I thought I'd broken it. :) It took a while but I did learn how to get things started, slowly. Went to a C64 Users Group meeting where I got a pile of utilities to do the si...

Re: When you have 2 partitions or drives

Perhaps, use gksudo and enter your user password to login.
I've had problems that seem to be caused by using su instead of sudo; gksu instead of gksudo.
YMMV. I have never used RAIDs.
