Re: Another installation success

I don't know if this is a strict hardware problem or the way linux interacts with the hardware. Most likely hardware, netbooks weren't meant to be worked hard, & every modern browser puts a lot of strain on an Atom. ;) I just put MX on my Acer - Atom 450 - seems to be working OK on it so far. :turt...

Re: Vote

I tend to just use, & promote, my favourite distros - word of mouth - is so much more worthwhile. I don't care if they think *buntu is the greatest distro - it does nothing for me - & that is what matters. I've been using AntiX for a few years now, never had any problems with it, so have always been...

Re: antiX-17 released

Not sure if it's anything to worry about, but I was trying to download today - 64full downloaded quickly enough, but 64base seems to be extremely slow, on several mirrors. (Just for info, mainly.)

Re: antiX16 kernel boot options, want no framebuffer for my nv29 card

AntiX 16 has had all the known bugs sorted out, so either you got a dodgy download, or your disk might be going bad.

(I've installed a few times & never had any problems with any of the official releases, other than a dodgy download, once.)

Re: I want to dump all desktops except one.

Each distro will write its files to your /home directory, so there may be a clash of files, which is where personalised desktop info is kept, that is, your icon preferences are stored in your /home directory. But, I'm just wondering why you are worried by a few MBs of WMs when you say you have 30 DV...
