Re: Stretch Repository Errors

I wonder if this is related somehow Running the updater via synaptic this morning, I was asked if I wanted to replace the Debian list, which, if we take a look at it, will have some ramifications on one of our tools to select the local repo. The sliver of text in the Synaptic window has the followin...

Re: Release file is expired

It is simply stating that the debian.mirror.ac.za mirror you're connecting to is out of sync with the Debian host. Next time it syncs, the issue will be corrected. If you're impatient, or it isn't rectified in a timely manner, you can easily switch to another mirror using Repo Manager inside MX Tools.

Re: Black screen with blinking cursor when installed on Hyper-V

I've had a variety of Linux distros running in Hyper-V and I hated the platform Hyper-V provided for not only MX, but Linux in general. They all felt cludgy for the level of hardware they were installed onto and not at all like a native install. By virtue of Hyper-Vs' design, Linux distros will only...

Crtl + t aprirà un'altra scheda Thunar. Puoi avere tutte le schede che vuoi aperte, ma devi stare attento perché non è sempre chiaro in quale scheda stai operando

Re: MX-17 Release Candidate 1 - Feedback

I still prefer unetbootin because dd mode causes an entire flash drive to become completely useless for any other operation, which is a terrible waste when using 16, 32 & 64GB drives, or when a drive is to be shared across differing operating systems.

Re: MX-17 Release Candidate 1 - Feedback

When the MX installer is told to use the whole drive for installation, it creates the partitions dependent on what type of Live-boot environment it running in, e.g., EFI boot or Legacy boot, and as a part of the process, it marks one partition as bootable and the rest is music to my ears. The same i...

Re: MX-17 Beta 3 Feedback

Just because you have broadband doesn't mean the rest of the world does, so removing gnomeppp woiuld be a foolish move. We aim to have a prepacked distro that has enough of the most commonly required features, tools and recreational assists to make it attractive to the widest audience. Your preferen...

Re: MX-17 Beta 3 Feedback

OK, I've checked the other laptop I test installed onto and there are no partitions marked with the boot flag, yet it still boots. I checked the current installation and sure enough, the / partition had been marked as bootable, so I reset my E330, installed as before to manual partitions and achieve...

Re: MX-17 Beta 3 Feedback

Boot flag should not be necessary with GRUB to MBR as evidenced by my other install tests to different hardware.
