Re: Can I use snapshots as a backup? [SOLVED]

Can you use a shovel to open a can? Yes. Is that the best tool though? Snapshot (and the name is probably not the best one) is meant for creating new ISOs from a live or installed system, creating your own custom distribution in a sense, it could be used for backup, it could be used for transferring...

Indeed I won't.. I just ordered another SSD (same brand and type) for MX. Should hopefully be here Tuesday ;)


I wonder how fast that is going to run on that....
On my system MX boots from the time it loads the kernel to the time it shows LightDM login prompt in 2-3 seconds.

Re: Distrowatch Ranking

Just consider for a moment. Think about the huge teams, corporations, and finances behind Suse, Fedora, Ubuntu, and even advantages in name recognition like Linux Mint. It's amazing that MX with its small core of devs with a Debian based distro could be at the top of Distrowatch. Incredible folks. ...

I was just there and saw that. MX is far ahead on the 3 month average.
But way *way* behind on 12 months... :bawling:

:number1:
That's OK, by the time we get on top for the 12 month we'll deserve it. :happy:

Re: Live USB with persistance

but the usb stick (32 Gb) is not writable so it asks to me where to save.
