@colin_b

That is probably the case. You need to exclude them in the snapshot configuration. I have done the that so timeshift snapshots are not copied to MX Sanpshot. There are a lot of bytes there especially if you keep 3 Timeshift snaps.

BitJam beat me to it.

Are timeshifts kept in a standard location? If so then maybe we can exclude that location by default.

This is what makes this group of developers so great. BJ sees how the software can catch people unawares, and proactively suggests a fix, that he himself would be responsible for implementing.

The default location is /timeshift/snapshots/.

After numerous attempts at modifying the exclusion list I found home/timeshift/snapshots* prevented the Timeshift snapshots from being added to MX Snapshot.

Hopefully this is of help.

MX is finally on my PC.

Everything was working OK until I modified the Plymouth setting to give me a different boot animation. I changed it to percentage, and when I rebooted the PC shows the full animation and then locks with the following:

Code: Select all

[0.630585] amd vi: unable to write to iommuperf counter
[1.361396] [drm:construct [amdgpu]] *error* construct: invalid connector obj ectid from adaptor service for connector index:2! type 0 expected 3
Another line follows this, but it took me ages to copy the above so I gave up.

Any ideas?

Doh!

It would be useful if posts could be deleted.

Absolutely none, as we lack your Quick System Info. Can you boot into your Live USB, run MX Boot Options, and undo your change?
Please read How To Ask For Help and How to Break Your System.
MX User Manual: hold down ALT and press F1. Further information may be found in the MX Wiki.
