it's an update tat fix a few bugs, why not.
kernel update r more critical than apps.
i'm using the latest update liquorix-amd64_4.14-8.
not able to install header due to gcc-7 dependencies.
it run a lot better/smoother/faster than 4.13.13(eol) like new engine powerup my old pc.

There are supposedly lots of Ryzen AMD code added, including CPU temperature monitoring.
The 4.13 is unstable (maybe) on this hardware, and 4.14 might be better.

But I am testing the antix 4.10 kernel on MX-17 RC1 for stability currently. If that is stable, I can stay on that for quite a while.
antiX 4.14.5 kernel should hit the repos very soon.

Edit - Whoops, I misread - ignore.

So install 14.4-7 (14.4-4.3) from the test repo then, don't need to be using 4.13. You will also be able to install the headers then since Stevo recompiles them using Stretches gcc-6 so there will not be the dependency on gcc-7.

Kinda busy helping get MX 17 out now, but there's always my Liquorix openSUSE build service repo that builds the kernels much, much faster on their farm than I can on my laptop. I'll get 5.1 loaded it into it right now.

See https://techpatterns.com/forums/about2615.html

Though I now only do Debian 8, 9, and Ubuntu 14.04 versions now that Liquorix does the other Ubuntus in a PPA. Also I make much fewer changes to the files when backporting them than we used to...makes it much easier on my part.

Edit: Loaded, you can check on build progress here: https://build.opensuse.org/package/show ... uorix-4.14 You have to refresh the page to keep up to date on the progress.

"Upgrading" those two critical system libraries very probably means your system is now broken and insane, and you will have trouble installing applications in the future. That's why we go to all the trouble of backporting and making sure our builds won't do that. Why didn't you follow that simple recipe in the thread I linked to add my OBS repo?

Just restore from the system backup...right?

At least MX is a lot faster to do a full reinstall than Debian, too.

....System restore from backup and reinstalling speed....

Yup, MX 17 is great. I just did a snapshot this afternoon, second time I used this feature, I love seeing top showing 1180% CPU !
And the apttik utility makes it easy to keep your installed applications.

Yes, installing from usb is very fast, for me three or four minutes. I used to burn DVDs, no more.

I never saw a big problem with a reinstall if you structure your data right. I have one disk with partitions for two OS versions, and I have a separate larger disk for data, the videos, music, pictures, documents, etc. With the data separate, changing the OS or programs is an easy task. I like a MX and an antix installation, with the antix one available to test new versions, like the next antix, maybe a different kernel when 4.15 comes out. And the new snapshot iso which goes on the data drive makes it easy.
