Re: MX-18

Yep, that was my proposal, the only downside that I could think of: it might be confusing to have the same major version like 19.3 and 19.12 for example based on different Debian bases (and also having a string of different major release numbers 17.x, 18.x, 19.x all based on Stretch). No if you hav...

Re: Love MX but it freezes to often

Can't find secure boot in Bios I've added a swap, i just put it at the end of the hard drive, does it correlate with the distro automatically. No You have to modify your /etc/fstab file, and add: Check before the UUID of the swap: blkid ... /dev/sda5: LABEL="SWAP" UUID="999-888-777-666" TYPE="swap"...

Re: MX-18

I agree that numbering using calendar base is more informative. 18.11, 18.12, etc just seems simpler and you don't have to wonder when was it released. For example, 17.1 could have been 18.3_Horizon. It's just numbers. :) But people remember them. Yes, why not: MX18.03_Horizon (like Ubuntu versioni...

Re: F2FS filesystem performance. Improve read speed.

I agree fio is not so easy to use, but it still interesting in some cases (benchmarks) ... fio needs to be used into a quiet system, without some heavy background process like clamd antivirus deamon in use, synaptic xapian index in use, etc...

...But the read test results are laughably incorrect.
Do you have tryed with : " --fsync=10000" (or buffered=0) ?

Re: F2FS filesystem performance. Improve read speed.

As a suggestion: Maybe some accurate tests should be more pertinents (spectrum 4k to 1M) ... with fio Seen here: https://askubuntu.com/questions/87035/how-to-check-hard-disk-performance ....If you want accuracy, you should use fio. It requires reading the manual (man fio) but it will give you accura...

Yes, but Into the top level "What is it" item (it's the first item, and often the only one that people like me read in a first step, and the "Features" item too)

Re: Help with Grub Customizer not Saving Configurations Correctly

... Not at all. When there is a kernel update in main distro, it will generate a new /boot/grub/grub.cfg file. But /boot/grub/ custom .cfg file does not change. And I don't need to change custom.cfg file in my main distro, since the entries in my custom.cfg file are made up only of chainloaders or ...

Re: Help with Grub Customizer not Saving Configurations Correctly

... Nope, custom.cfg is totally not affected by updates to grub.cfg via update-grub. It exists outside of the grub.cfg menu items and I don't edit grub.cfg at all. Ah Ok, then sorry for the mistake. But if a kernel update is applied into your main distrib, you have to modify by hand your custom file?
