Re: Systemd free MX19?

My opinion only.

My bet is that the vast majority of existing MX users do not need to boot into systemd for their needs. (MX-18)
A sysvinit MX 'buster' will also work just fine for the vast majority of MX users.

I guess Devuan will have the same problem as MX if/when it tries to use Buster.
No it won't because it has never used the systemd-shim (for systemd apps to 'work').

My fear is that if MX remains a systemd holdout, eventually the rest of Linuxdom will move on and MX will become a marginalized niche distro with a dwindling user based and eventually dwindling contingent of developers.
This may happen if MX fully adopts systemd

On my MX install ceni was not installed by default and needed to be installed.
On antiX Ceni is installed by default. I was just wondering how to launch it.
It's in the control centre, under Network

By the way:
Who is the project leader for the MATE DE in MX Linux?
Is there planned to publish a flavor/spin of MX Linux with MATE?
There isn't one.
No there isn't.

Re: Recommended way to disable/enable services?

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,...

Re: Just saw dolphin's blog post on systemd-shim

There seems to be some misconceptions about Devuan.
For those that do not know, Devuan uses the Debian repos as its MAIN repo (but they hide it), just like MX and antiX do.

Re: Just saw dolphin's blog post on systemd-shim

Same as KBD. I hope MX can keep both sysvinit and systemd in same iso. Not only for user choice, but also as security option. There are/were cases when either one fails during booting. In my case with earlier kernel version running in Dell inspiron 5567. If it turns out to be impossible to use the ...

antiX-19-a2_x64.iso xdelta patch

I have uploaded an xdelta patch here: https://sourceforge.net/projects/antix-linux/files/Testing/ To use this patch, you will need the antiX-19.a1_x64.iso and the patch in the same directory. In a user terminal: xdelta3 -d -s antiX-19.a1_x64-full.iso antiX-19-a1_a2_x64.xdelta antiX-19.a2_x64-full.is...
