Re: Multi-boot of Encrypted distros

I think ESP needs to be a FAT partition with the ESP flag set up.

Re: MX-18.1 live?

Re: MX Linux on Surface Pro 2

Not sure if you can install it and boot from Surface Pro, can you disable the secure boot? You can try the LiveUSB and see how it works I guess and you can continue to run from USB since persistency/remastering tools are some of the best, but you might not be able to boot once installer if you canno...

Re: How to Recover Encrypted Home Directory

Re: Reduce locales so update speeds up!

Re: Reduce locales so update speeds up!

What about an one liner to comment all the locales that are not the default ones? Back up /etc/locale.gen because I am not sure it works for any LANG settings (it worked for me for en_US.UTF-8 but if it doesn't find your LANG in the file it will comment out all the locales) -- first line makes a cop...

Re: Steam not working / Uploads not working

I think you get post notifications if you "subscribe" to the post, otherwise you don't get it by default. Or it might be a setting in your profile that you need to tick (not sure I don't need that). As for the issue, I want to understand something, if you boot MX live, the original release do you ha...
