How can I download MX16 today? I need it because of the non-pae option.

It should be really easy to create a non-pae respin for 17.1. Let me do that...

Any idea when or if, the 32bit versions of MX will cease to be released?

Thanks Jerry and sorry for hijacking the thread, hopefully the OP had been satisfied with his answer.

Would that be a good addition to the FAQ?

Q: "Lots of other distros are dropping their 32-bit versions. What about MX?"

A: "MX has no plans to discontinue 32-bit releases for the foreseeable future."

BTW, if all I do is switch the kernel to the non-pae 686 version and update all the packages to the current date, would a ISO of that still be unofficial?

That would be a good one. I will modify the wiki and Forum post.

Thought we agreed to just do the Wiki=the master document. I have made some changes there and really want to avoid competing variations.

The next time we are ready to do a new version of the FAQs, Old Giza is going to set it up in Transifex for translation.
