MX Linux includes the tools Live-usb maker (see Section 3.2) and the cross-platform utility Unetbootin for this ...

MX-17.1: mx-live-usb-maker produces error while generating MX-17.1 boot stick

@all: Just tried to generate an MX-17.1 boot stick, but mx-live-usb-maker gave me an unspecific error message . Last thing it did before that was copying files to the stick. I had used this stick as a live MX-17.1 stick before, but had generated it from another computer. Unfortunately mx-live-usb-ma...

O.k., will do so. that's what grub does for you. grub is lower level, and can launch the installed system's initramfs or initrd (think ram drive, a compressed filesystem image that can...

MX-17.1 installer: Time options and effects?

@all:
