Re: I bricked my system... I think

Did you use efibootmgr command to set MX's bootloader as the first to boot? No point reinstalling MX yet again if SUSE is still set as the first bootloader in the EFI partition. https://linux.die.net/man/8/efibootmgr If you have already installed MX but can't boot into it, run (from live MX USB): su...

Re: I bricked my system... I think

If it's an UEFI machine, perhaps the EFI partition still records POP as the first-to-boot bootloader. I read that on System76's machines, they now use systemd-boot instead of grub, so I have no idea if POP OS when manually installed on other machines does the same thing. You may need to access BIOS ...

Re: Taking 3 to 4 minutes to boot during startup. Help

For older machines, probably makes more sense to use the Debian Stretch default kernel of 4.9.

No point moving to even newer kernels than 4.15.

Re: TAKING 3 TO 4 MINUTES TO BOOT DURING STARTUP. HELP

Just to check, this is install of the whole hard disk on your machine? No dual-boot?

You're not booting into MX using the grub of another distro on the same machine?

Re: Repositories Error (?)

You should not have the backport repo permanently enabled.

Did you do so for a particular reason?

Re: vlc updates today

I'm confused.

You said you did not accept the vlc updates in the first post.

If that is the case, how come the command

sudo apt full-upgrade

does not surface them again as outstanding updates?

Re: vlc updates today

For more details as to what went wrong for GUIGuy, perhaps he can run sudo apt update and then sudo apt full-upgrade in terminal. Since vlc updates are broken on his system, the update won't proceed, but it will display the error messages and list of package conflicts that are stopping the update fr...

Re: Difference between Kernels systemd/nonsystemd

@zimbodel, I've been going through your older posts, and it looks like forum members have tried to explain MX's position on systemd before. https://forum.mxlinux.org/viewtopic.php?p=490530#p490530 I am now wondering what effects your continued attempts to remove packages containing the words "system...
