A little data on 32bit vs. 64 bit

One of the features that is often mentioned for a 64 bit system vs. a 32 bit -pae system is that math-intensive projects like video encoded are faster on a 64 bit. I decided to test this the other day as I find myself migrating more toward MX for my day to day rather than my antiX 13.2 install. But ...

Re: What changes would you like to see in Thunar?

That it lacks dual panels/twin panels/split views/dual pane views (whatever it's called) is what keeps me away from Thunar. I'm not holding my breath, seems that the devs don't want to do it. the dev didn't want to add network browsing or tabs for the longest time, but he finally did. we can but sq...

Re: What changes would you like to see in Thunar?

1. Split view option 2. Drag to a different folder and have a create link option like Dolphin rich hit the nail on the head. dual panes, its already got tabs. I like the notion of dragging with the right click instead of the left click and when you drop in the target folder, you get a menu to move/...

Re: Resizing rootfs for multiple computers

antiX (and MX for that matter) has antix-snapshot for creating backup isos and antix2usb for creating bootable antix media. and MX has unetbootin as well. I've left machines running for days off the liveusb, no problems. I've often thought of setting up a box for storage running the OS off the liveu...

Re: Resizing rootfs for multiple computers

[quote]dolphin_oracle: You use root persistence regularly on low-RAM machines or even with plenty of RAM? Hmmmm. I'd decided to avoid that in order to minimize writes to the drive. Maybe I'll rethink that.../[quote] both. I tend to stick with static persistence all the time whether I have plenty of ...

Re: Resizing rootfs for multiple computers

the rootfs file will not change from machine to machine. if you use a ram limited machine, use the static persistence option. with static persistence, the rootfs persistence file will not be loaded into ram. this is actually how I use persistence most of the time.

Re: why mepis/mx instead of debian?

The mepis CR is a huge reason to pick MX over debian stable. my other big reason is the community (I even listed the community as a feature in the intro video). Never mind the mx-tools , which simplify a lot of taskes (mx-user is still my favorite user management app on any distro). don't forget inc...

Re: HBO GO on Mx-14.2?

Then discovered I have forgotten how to download and manage which version I want to install in AntiX, without synaptic being available (getting old quickly). synaptic is available but of course you can't install chrome that way. download the version for your system from the chrome download page.

Re: Netflix now supports Linux (via Google Chrome) - Confirm

I only have 2 gigs of memory DDR 8500 in this system. Guessing I need 4 or more gigs of memory in the tower to run flash sticks Distros. I routinely run with 1 gb of ram both MX and antiX liveUSB. I use static persistence though instead of the other...its slower but uses less ram. Can I create a fl...
