Re: can't play dvd video_TS.BUP in VLC

Probably.

Use mx-codecs. It will install the dvd decryption library.

Re: Snapshot and Live USB Maker

Thanks D.O. for the info. I'm writing this on a live USB session from a snapshot I created this morning. I had no idea it could be so smooth and fast. once you learn the ins and outs of the antiX live-USB system, its tough to use anything else. I often run live w/ persistence, install all my apps a...

If I burn my snapshot to a flashdrive with Live USB Maker, and choose the writable option, will I still be able to boot and restore my snapshot with it?

Re: mx-17.1 - no boot disk has been detected

For what its worth, I didn...

Re: Our Rock Star is at it again

Hey guys!

It was fun. And I tried to throw out as many mentions for everyone as I could.

As to the lag...my Internet connection is famous for being lousy so that plays a lot into it. Matt did the recording so he only got what I could send!

Now that newer versions of Firefox can't be built as genuine MX Linux packages any more: Is that any better in Brave? Just curious.

Re: How do they know?

Not a serious subject, and I've no idea if this applies to other countries, but it certainly applies here in the UK: Erm, lets restrict this to potato products for now - potato chips/fries/crips, not silicon chips ;) If there's a new flavour/style of chips out, and you buy a bag, that first bag is ...
