antiX upgrades that affect MX

#1 Post by anticapitalista » Thu Mar 22, 2018 10:17 am

There will be some upgrades in the stretch antiX repositories that users should note.

smxi-inxi-antix – inxi now uses perl rather than bash so should run faster. Also, there is now an /etc/inxi.conf file that has inxi -U upgrade disabled (set to false).

remaster-antix scripts – new default option when remastering set to lz4 compression. This makes the remaster process much faster and cooler. However, the final linuxfs file is much bigger than one created by xz or gzip (c66% larger).
Users can still choose gzip, xz for their compression.

I haven't paid much attention, but does the inxi still use the same cli switches?

I'll have to rebuild the remaster deb for mx. While the remaster scripts themselves are the same, there are a couple of support files that are different for mx, so there is sep. package for those. Thanks for the heads up!

FYI: mx "test" repo is not the same thing as debian testing repo.

I'll just update the remaster-antix git repo

Cool, nice that you added the lz4 compression option.
