Re: MX Snappshot tool - create a small ISO -file

The size of the ISO is nowhere near as important as the running OS's active memory footprint, which we all know, MX does significantly better than Windows did. With the added benefit Linux is less prone to the malware types Windows is subject to, so has less need of real-time active antivirus to slo...

Re: MX Snappshot tool - create a small ISO -file

Did you think of removing unwanted locales and support files. If you're intending to redistributing it to any and all, then removing the locales is not a smart option, but if you intend to use it as a personal tool, then go ahead and remove the locales and their support files, it should make a nice ...

Re: Teamviewer 13

No machine used to be the best all round remote desktop system for Linux based machines. That was before they chose to change their product on offer for personal use some 5 years ago. I hated what they did becauseitI compressed the living daylights out of video and made it just pathetic. I gave it a...

Re: Teamviewer 13

Teamviewer records your network devices hardware address (MAC Address) and if their servers detect you have made connections to a number of different computers, they deem your usage to be a commercial use case. I don't know how long their servers retain your MAC Address, but they can't hold it forev...

Re: Good lord, does anybody have a working smb.conf?

It's unnecessary. Syslog is one of a number of backend logging tools that can be used by samba. The value of 0 means the log will only receive critical faults. Syslog, while standardised, has had many implementations from different vendors over the many years it's been in used, so it's my reckoning ...

Re: Good lord, does anybody have a working smb.conf?

Here's an original smb.conf file that's has all the annotations removed so you can see the clean portion where the configuration is done. I took a standard smb.conf from MX17.1, used testparm to remove all the annotations and this is the result. # Global parameters [global] log file = /var/log/samba...

Re: Snapshots

The installer runs a S.M.A.R.T. status check before it writes anything to the hard disk. It's not a full check, but it's a whole lot better than nothing.

Re: Snapshots

I just revisited this thread and realised I'd missed the 3 beeps in your first post. On your laptop, the 3 beeps are typically related to a memory failure, so at the least, you should try removing your RAM modules and re-seating or replacing them, dependent on how many you have installed and while y...
