SMPlayer 18.5.0 (done) for main

Found out that the sources for the Liquorix kernel weren't being uploaded to their Debian repo for the last few releases, so just went to the Liquorix PPA and got them there. Now building 32 and 64-bit MX 15/16 and 17 4.16.10 kernels in four pbuilders at once on the new six-core-12-thread laptop (MSI GP63 with i7-8750H CPU and 16 GB RAM) Kernels don't take much RAM to build, though...probably because they just build a bazillion small drivers instead of big complex monster programs like a browser.

@Stevo, that's really a super building machine in a laptop.
How're the temps holding up?

It will run at 3.9 Ghz if the CPU is cool enough, with one core being able to jump to 4.1 for a time, but it currently is throttling down to 3.2 on sustained long builds and maintains temps of about 175 F (80 C) at that load. There's a button I can press to force the fans to run all out, but it makes a lot more noise than just the 3.2 Ghz sustained load.

Still, that 80°C is reasonably cool for those loads.
And I imagine that is noticeably faster than before.

Transmission 2.9.4. Disabled a patch Debian added upstream to use a new ayatana-appindicator and just built against libappindicator3-dev instead. Has systemd hooks, so if antiX wants it, will have to rebuild without them.
