Boot-Up Manager is a bit dated, but as far as I can tell it's fully functional. I hope MX devs package Boot-Up Manager for a Debian Buster based release. Since it's based on sysvinit and not systemd it's unlikely that BUM would suddenly stop working due to low-level breaking changes.
Unfortunately, bum is not in the Debian buster or sid repos, so MX would have to provide its own package.

Code: Select all

Philosophers have interpreted the world in many ways; the point is to change it.

I forgot all about BUM. I remember *buntu used to have it but they dropped it for some reason. It might not be supported any longer. It's in the MXPI under stable.

Another service I don't need or want that I left out of my list was rpcbind.
