I built the zsync, it's really easy, you just run "zsyncmake -e filename" and it takes seconds... you just need the server to support fragment downloading (I think mxrepo.com doesn't)

I would really like to take Fehlix script and modify it a bit make it more general and put in the download folder of Snapshots on Sourceforge.

My desired features:
- remove "doit" because it's not something that everybody has, it's not installed by default on MX I think. What does it actually do, I'm not familiar with it?
- use a generic name for the script "downloadMXsnapshot.sh" and pull the name of the last snapshot from Sourceforge
- maybe use a switch/option for 32bit instead of relying on the file name, so by default it would download 64bit and then if you run "donwloadMXsnapshot.sh -32" it would get the 32bit...
- get the signature keys only if they are not already installed
- generalize a bit the input file try to use all the older .isos of the same arch, then try the most recent of a different arch, even if you download 32 bit and use 64 bit ISO as input you still get a considerable saving in terms of bandwidth.

Can a script wizard take a look at this?
Thanks. I will have a look and do adjust accordingly :puppy:

i installed mx in a usb stick by using the july snapshot (using snapshots is very convenient, thank you adrian), but when i opened thunderbird the message about the old icedove profile appeared. if someone installs mx for the first tme and sees that message, this might not give a good impression, i think.

IIRC, the only tool which created an empty .icedove folder we have seen so far was firejail. If you have firejail, you might adjust firejail conf
to exclude .icedove, as it will otherwise create an empty .icedove folder, which results in the thunderbird complaining message.

Thanks for the report, can you please post a screenshot because I am not sure what you are talking about, I just installed it the snapshot in VBox and I don't see any message when I start Thunderbird. Have you reused /home by any chance?

EDIT: oh, Fehlix solves the mystery one more time :happy:

Did you mean Adobe Reader?

On a test install, I also experienced the same failures. See attached for details.

I think the problem is libfontconfig1 library. which recently updated, and then was scaled back. the problem is the 32 bit version of the library, which adobe-reader (acroread) requires is conflicting with the 64 bit version (the 32 bit library and the 64 bit library versions need to match).

at least I think that's the problem.

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