Re: [warn] Not starting NFS kernel daemon: no exports (warning)

yep, its a message by the NFS service that there is nothing for it to do, so its not going to do anything. another one of those lovely messages that you wonder why they are even there.

Re: Live-Usb Gui option 3: Update Mode

update takes an existing live-usb, and updates the antiX directory with new live files. This is most handy when dealing with multiple releases. The main thing I use it for is for preserving the Live-USB-Storage folder between live-USBs. For instance, when going from alpha 5 to b1. "UPDATE"...

Rather than reboot to the 4.14-13 MX kernel, I issued a command to rebuild all dkms packages for all installed package...

I would think that it's ...

Re: Go from Nvidia to Open Source Nouveau Video Driver

we have a function for that. ddm-mx -p nvidia will purge out the nvidia driver and reverse the nouvaue blacklist. also we are updating mx-packageinstaller today with the 4.9.0-5 debian stretch kernel with patches. Its already available in synaptic. I do believe those nvidia 384 driver will build on ...

Re: MX-17 Live USB unable to create persistence files during boot

Ok, I can reproduce the error.

the good news is that an update to mx-iso-template wil probably fix things. the bad news we need to figure out what's wrong with it. I'll update progress on this thread to keep you guys in the loop.

Re: MX-17 Live USB unable to create persistence files during boot

Is the problem only with liveusb made from a snapshot iso? Have kernels been updated and if so to what?

Are there any failures with the release iso?
