Re: Why are /home/demo/Live-usb-storage permissions root:root?

I need to make a change in the live initrd to treat ntfs just like I treat fat32 and give demo ownership of the live device then restrict read-write-execute permission on /live to only give root access. If you are comfortable with the command line then you could try the following: sudo su - /live/bi...

Re: I can't copy ISO to USB ! (bootable)

The official gui (dd live-usb) can't see the usb stick either as root or as a user ! We try to be very careful to not normally offer you an option to over-write your system hard drive with the "dd" command. So by default in the dd-live-usb program we only list devices that are reported to...

Re: How system agnostic is MX Snapshot?

For what it's worth, Void devs created iso creation scripts that I have used to create my own custom images. I only went as far as using the options that were available on the surface but I am told there is much more underneath that I could modify and customize even further. ISTM this is a way bett...

Re: How system agnostic is MX Snapshot?

You could try it. It might work on some distros. If you have all of the needed packages/dependencies installed then it will use our (antX/MX) live system for the iso file combined with the kernel and file system for the distro you are running on. I actually think Debian based systems may not work ou...

Re: Merry Christmas

I once spent the holidays in Montreal when the temperature was the same in Fahrenheit and Celsius. We even camped out one night.

Merry Christmas everyone!

Re: MX-17 Live Static Persistence Issues

OK. Here you go. sudo lsblk -o name,size,fstype [...] sdb 119.5G ├─sdb1 119.5G ext4 └─sdb2 50M vfat That looks like a live-usb made with live-usb-maker, not Rufus. The loop devices also make it look like it booted live and persistence is running and working correctly. I would need to see the lsblk ...

Re: MX-17 Live Static Persistence Issues

Apparently I'm not explaining it very well. I'm not trying to make anything other than what is normally done when a live usb with static persistence is created. Nothing more. This works easily with MX-16.1 but for some reason is giving me problems with MX-17 unless I format the stick ext4 and then ...

Re: Superblock last mount time MX17

As you suspected, this is usually due to a problem with the time and timezone configuration. Are you only booting your installed system or are you booting other things (such as Windows or live systems) in between? There is also a surprising feature/bug in the linux kernel which will cause it to auto...

Re: Top 3 at Distrowatch!

it's a sure thing that MX is a silent performer . . . - now will it make No.2 ? now that it's Final Release, perhaps. There is usually an exponential fall off after the release day so today is probably the high water mark for the one-week average. All of the very positive video reviews are encourag...
