Thanks Stevo, I thought it was something complex like that.

I am often wondering how to see which actual kernel.org version these derivatives are based on. So for Liquorix, the source link will have the actual kernel version.
MX and antix, I am still not clear where I can find the actual kernel.org version. I think the latest MX kernel is the 4.15.3 or .4.

antiX is easy - it is the same as the version from kernel.org e.g. the one you are currently using, 4.15.5-antix.1, is compiled from kernel.org's 4.15.5
Soon to hit the repos will be antiX kernel 4.15.9-antix.1, built on ... I'm sure you can work out which kernel.org version.

For the Liquorix kernels, the number that reflect what version of the vanilla kernel it's based on is set in the abi line in /debian/config/defines, which is 9.1 in the 4.15-4 Liquorix kernel. The ".1" means that it's the first version based on that particular 4.15.9 kernel patch. The "4.15-4" comes from the versioning in /debian/changelog.

Now updated to 4.15-5 (4.15-10.1) which incorporates the vanilla 4.15.10 patch as well as 4.15-11 rc1.

That's weird...the missing file is in libgtk3-perl, but we never needed that before. But I remember seeing stuff like that before, which I remember were just warnings that it couldn't find that file, and that it was going to fall back to readline.

The installation went successfully after that, right?

My 64 bit build system also does a lot better with libgtk3-perl onboard. What do you think, a +2 with it added to the depends?

installation is ok, no problem.
did a search "unable to initialize frontend", found similar bug in this forum couple years back.
