How do you define a successful release?

Here you can post about what you did to get MEPIS to work right with your computer or if hardware worked right out of the box for you. This is for the computers and/or hardware that is normally hard to get working right in Linux or MEPIS.

How do you define a successful release?

#1 Post by Jerry3904 » Sat May 02, 2015 10:49 am

Maybe like this: over 20,000 downloads (currently about 350/day) with no problems being reported and nothing in Tracker specific to 14.4.

I have been amazed (and pleased) to see the absence of complaint--really mostly hardware-specific questions as far as I can see.
Production: 4.15.0-1-amd64, MX-17.1, AMD FX-4130 Quad-Core, GeForce GT 630/PCIe/SSE2, 8 GB, SSD 120 GB, Data 1TB
Testing: AAO 722: 4.15.0-1-386. MX-17.1, AMD C-60 APU, 4 GB
Personal: XPS 13, 4.18.0-19.3-liquorix, 4 GB

Easy enough for a new comer, whilst being powerful enough for a regular user? :)

Now Jessie is gold, so I presume that MX-15 is next to be issued. Any clue about systemd or ststemd-less?
On my desktop, Jessie64 KDE installed without problems, and works pretty well. But debian lacks the MX flavours...
MX-17.1_x64 / 4.15 / + KDE / MSI A55-G41 / Quad AMD A10-6800K ; APU@ 4.1 GHz + Radeon HD990C / 1920x1080
Net: Ralink RT2561/RT61 (rt61pci); Realtek RTL8111/8168B (r8169) / HDD: 2xWDC_WD10EZRX (2x1 GB) / DVDRAM HL-DT-ST GH22NS50

Nope, not until we see antiX 15 and start MX 15 development.
