I have tried to download this ( MX16_KDE_added.zip ) but for some reason the unzipped file is only 3.4MiB. See attached screenshot. :bawling:

Where can I download the correct file?

Finally my 'best half' allowed me to update her PC. As she was writing a book -now luckyly finished- the chance of any problem during the upgrade scared her. But finally her old MX-14 KDE could be upgraded to MX-16. For this purpose I used Stevo's unofficial remaster. As I did the upgrade of my own computer before this remaster was issued, my PC had been hacked to KDE the 'Joany way' (thanks again, Joany).

And wow, what a difference! not sure if Stevo's remaster has kept more or less Xfce packets that mine (I have a wider set of applications, so a comparison of used space can't be done), but this is a lot more effective and polished than mine. Of course, I had to prune many applications in the menu, and hide them on suitable folders, but this was a well deserved task.

So, once again I can say Kudos for your work, Stevo! and my sincere thanks to you and all the team.

Eduard.

I downloaded mine in March, and the size of the downloaded -und unzipped- file was 1 437 597 696 byte (circa 1,5 GB).

Mine was downloaded from http://mxrepo.com/snapshots/Community_Respins/ (MX16_KDE_added.zip) and, once unzipped its MD5sum was f74fecc2240629c8df8c0a86f175871b .

Thats where I was trying but for some reason it just wasn't downloading correctly. After 4 attempts I managed to get the complete file.

Added a 32-bit version with all the updates up to yesterday, it also has a zync file which can greatly reduce what you have to download if you already have an older ISO file. For example, using Adrian's March 2017 updated respin as the ISO to start with:

Code: Select all

zsync -i MX-16_March_386.iso http://iso.mxrepo.com/Snapshots/Community_Respins/MX16-386_KDE_added_April_2017.iso.zsync


It will compare the two and only download what's different between them --for that March ISO, it will start out at 62.3% already downloaded! This is really nice, since it will reduce both your downloaded total and the total load on the server--a win-win.
