Re: could MX safely use multiple repositories enabled at different priorities ?

duly noted. No biggie. As i mentioned wrt systemd i do not care much myself for discussions that go nowhere, but this was a genuine question and i had missed any similar older thread as i only visit the forum occasionally.I thought it was worth discussing now that buster is nearing and a major MX r...

Re: Please recommend a Rufus alternative for Linux that ACTUALLY works like Rufus

What i've done in the past (for a MBR-partitioned, fat32-formatted stick), is extract the MX ISO content to the root of the stick, then install syslinux to the stick. This way you do not end with a read-only stick as you would with "dd". Works for me as an installer or rescue tool. If you are going ...

Re: could MX safely use multiple repositories enabled at different priorities ?

@skidoo: that was a bit curt, especially without pointers to said previous discussions. @head-on-a-stick: i think you're right, on debian i only had backports permanently enabled. I do not see where backports is being set to a lower priority in MX, though (i thought that should be in /ertc/apt/prefe...

could MX safely use multiple repositories enabled at different priorities ?

I am no apt guru, but i like the command line, and was wondering about the following : could the stable, testing and backports repositories remain enabled permanently, but each with decreasing priority ? this way one can "apt search" from any repo, and "apt install -t stretch-backports libreoffice" ...

Re: Ubuntu style sudo? One password for login and admin tasks in MX linux

MX is debian-compatible - not just debian-derived like ubuntu - so it makes sense for it to behave like debian (which does neither encourage nor forbid sudo)

Re: Keyboard not recognised

Does the keyboard (arrows) work in the BIOS and on the grub menu ? If yes, can you select a previous kernel from the "advanced" submenu and see if it works - perhaps the latest kernel upgrade broke your USB support or something ...

Re: Help needed with NFS share

Can MX mount that windows NFS share - that would establish you have a working NFS client.

As to nfs-server, i cannot remember if i installed this aftewards, but i see I have nfs-kernel-server installed.
Wat does 'dpkg -l '*nfs*' report on your MX system ?

Re: Help needed with NFS share

In the exports file I share the folder with /dev/sdb1 /home/admin/EDrive/ ntfs nls-utf8,umask-0775,uid-1000,gid-1000,**rw** 0 0 This does not look like a line from /etc/exports but rather from /etc/fstab Are you sure your filesystem is writable on the server ? It seems you are using the ntfs driver...
