MX15 and MX16 are End of Life

MX15 and MX16 are now at End of Life and support for those versions is ceasing.

This coincides with the End of Life for Debian Jessie.

Sometime in the next couple of weeks, there will be updates to the apt-mx and mx-repo-list packages that will provide a “mxXX-archive.list” file with archived repository information. The MX and antiX repositories in other locations, including the main servers and the mirrors, may vanish at anytime. The archive repositories will remain, but they will no longer be updated.

No new packages will be built for MX15 or MX16.

If you are still using Debian Jessie, or MX15/16, then its time to update to a more current release.

Thank you for the support.

  1. Sorry, I was wrong, my version is already MX19.1.

    But it would be nice to always keep old versions for old PCs especially from AntixLinux

  2. “then its time to update to a more current release”
    For people who may not know, there is no smooth way to “update” MX Linux, as it’s involving a new install.
    I believe that I took the right choice not to have installed MX Linux on my parents computer, as we are living on different side of the world. Helping someone installing any linux system remotely is like asking someone to drive with blindfolded eyes, and ask them to trust your guidance. I did not say that it’s impossible, just that it will be very challenging.

  3. I enjoyed the heck of MX15 guys. Rock solid, sleek and beautiful to boot. Ran it for ages 4(5?) years and still going strong.

    Huge thanks to all the devs/maintainers out there. The No1 position on distrowatch is truly well deserved.
    I have to be honest and say i’m not looking forward to an update/re-install but that’s only because I’ve got my system setup exactly as I like it. Mind you it probably is time for a spring clean.

    Do you have any links to resources showing how to update easily? It might be an idea to put them on here if you do.

    Thanks again guys.
