Yes, it's with a snapshot ISO as I make a lot of changes after installation as I use different software from what's included on the default ISO (as I assume many folks do). I'm running the 4.14 debian kernel...

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.

FYI: mx "test" repo is not the same thing as debian testing repo.

Thank you.

I hadn't tried with a release ISO. Tried with two snapshot ISOs.

Kernel: 4.13.0-1-amd64 x86_64.

just giving you guys an update. we are testing new snapshot code now.

Thanks for pointing this stuff out. it affected both MX and antiX, so two bugs for the price of one.

I always do a test boot with a Live USB without persistence, then use the GUI Remaster tool to create the desired partitions. It also provides some feedback that the partitions are being created and an opportunity to select rootfs and homefs sizes and how saves are made eg 1. Automatic...

Then I reboot and use F-5/all-persist, being asked to set root and user passwords... as I recall offhand...

I regularly use a 4GB Scandisk USB with a swing cover and blinky blue light for installs, and a slimmer 16GB of same brand for running Live with persistence. The same process above is how I would set up a snapshot btw.

I've possibly formatted the 4GB USB with Gparted once or twice....also finding a USB stick will somehow 'resist' the Live USB maker or similar applications from properly creating the file system as needed was probably the reason so worth trying to break the USB out of some glitch?

I would try a reformat of one USB and then booting live, then creating the file system and restarting, rather than the 'express' option via the command via the Live bootloader, as this always seems reliable for me over many USB installs and live running systems as backup.
Thank you, that worked perfectly for me.
