just saw LIVE USB MAKER in MX linux is it also useful to burn iso's

Live USB Maker creates Live USB thumb drives from MX and antiX isos. It does not usually work for other OS's. That is why dd was added as an option.


dd the CLI package has always been around.

However, the new MX live usb maker has an option to run dd via GUI, which will detect the device number for your USB drive, so that you don't accidentally wipe out your hard drive by naming the wrong device in your dd commands in terminal.

Still looking good. :happy:

RC1 still stable after one and a half days under kernel 4.10 (the antix kernel).
So far encouraging, the 4.13 kernel crashed twice the first day.

Great!

Odd though, file manager shows 19.1G free while conky says 17.7G.

Wonderful looking Conky btw! :)

Re: BCM4356 firmware issue:
Xubuntu, MX & Debian all have exactly the same firmware files for that chipset. There is an extra file, brcmfmac4356-pcie.bin.txt that is used just for some chromebook type computers (including the GPD piwadam has). It is specific to that particular configuration and is not generally applicable to other BCM4356 devices.
It is included with the operating systems that come installed on those notebooks, and in the the GPD specific Ubuntu respins.
Since it would likely cause problems with other, more common, BCM4356 wifi adapters this is not something we should include.

Probably due to Conky showing GiB and Thunar showing GB

Even for MX isos? That surprises me. For other OS's I can understand that unless you use the dd option in the GUI.

Yep. I only make MX isos, don't use anything else (windows at work, but that's it).

I tried the MX 17-rc release and the one big problem I've run into is trying to work with Snap packages. The snapd package is in the repos, but when I install it, Snap fails to work. Any operation (snap find, snap install, etc) results in an error saying the server at a localhost cannot be contacted. Looks like the default Snap repo is probably not enabled.
