Debian Wheezy no longer supported.

#1 Post by Jerry3904 » Thu May 31, 2018 7:48 pm

Long Term Support for Debian Wheezy ends today. As MX-14 is based on Wheezy, its official support also ends as planned.

The MX-14 repositories will remain available indefinitely at http://archive.mxrepo.com (and for the near term at mxrepo.com and it.mxrepo.com) but they will soon no longer be officially mirrored elsewhere.

We encourage any remaining MX-14 users to update to MX-17 so they can continue receiving regular & security updates.
Those whose computers have insufficient specifications to handle MX-17 should consider antiX 17 which handles those machine limitations better.

This is also an appropriate moment for us to archive the MEPIS subforum--may it Rest In Peace.
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

Jerry, although I doubt there are any MX-14 users who also use our Facebook page, I will post this information there.
