Re: MX-18 beta 1 feedback

I set the timezones, clicked next, and the installer vanished ! (not sure what happened, did I press a wrong button??!!?!?) Possibly an installer crash, it never happened to me at that step though... not sure what's went on. This also happened for me the first time, but I was distracted by conversa...

Re: MX-18 beta 1 feedback

Live usb booted OK and went straight to install on SSD. Halfway through install notifier showed 1 update - mx-welcome. Ignored it. Did not install grub - booted MX-17 to update grub, then booted 18 Beta. Boot failed early. screen messages far more voluble that previously, but the final ones were: Ru...

Re: 32 bit UEFI with 64 bit processor

MX wouldn't recognise the wifi card which card was that? I'm not absolutely sure but I think it was Realtek RTL8723BE. I may be wrong with the final letters. I was never able to get the info in linux - inxi reported 'No network card found'. I eventually found a driver on the Debian site but with a ...

At the time, the MX installer didn't support this but with a lot of help from BitJam I managed to modify the installation to boot successfully. The changes we worked out were subsequently incorporated in the installer, so ...

Re: Nov 10 updates - grub-pc

I also have multiple boot, UEFI grub controlled by the current installation of MX. I chose to keep the existing configuration, but Synaptic appeared to go through the update grub routine anyway. I was bothered (my grub is customised) so I rebooted. I'm glad to say that my grub menu was unchanged.

Re: Invalid partition table!

If your system is running well, I wouldn't bother. My first installation (of Mepis) ran for years without problems on a disk with a misaligned partition.
