I am pleased to announce an update for my 3 x personal MX-Base respin ISO’s, plus a new 64-bit Fluxbox ISO !
MX-19.3_base_386 (Xfce only)
MX-19.3_base_x64 (Xfce only)
MX-19.3_flux_base_386 (Fluxbox + Xfce)
MX-19.3_flux_base_x64 (Fluxbox + Xfce) ! New !
All ISO’s are current through to 1st December 2020 and include all the fixes, enhancements and upgrades available through the MX repositories. The Xfce ISO’s do not come with Fluxbox preloaded.
MX Base ISO’s are designed to provide a clean, clutter free MX-Linux Base system that includes all of the goodness of MX Linux while excluding 150+ packages, and their dependencies, at the build stage. These are perfect to use as a base for your next project, whether it’s File Server, Dev box, TV Box, Media Server, Print server or whatever you heart desires.
MX Base is not to be confused with a “Lite system”. The startup RAM usage for the Xfce ISO’s is only marginally lower than our regular Xfce ISO, while the Fluxbox ISO uses only 260MB RAM at startup, easier on older systems, but equally as good on modern processors (64-bit version for EFI boot).
The Fluxbox ISO’s have received the biggest overhaul, the Desktop now defaults to using the Tint2 toolbar. Users not familiar with the standard Fluxbox toolbar will feel right at home with Tint2, which works like the toolbars found on the majority of OS’s used around the globe.
All ISO’s are multi-lingual, users can choose from 60 languages through the Live ISO GRUB menu, a feature common to all MX ISO’s. For Classic Boot, use F2 to set the language, and F3 to set the Locale. For EFI Boot, use the Customize Boot (text menus) option, and choose your language and country using the number values that represent your choice as you go through the first few text screens. Your choices will transfer over to a fixed disk install should you wish to do so, eliminating the need to set languages post installation.
All ISO’s are signed with gpg so you can verify their authenticity after downloading the ISO and its accompanying .sig file. You’ll need to add my public key from a keyserver first to complete the verification. Open a terminal and paste the following to import my public key.
gpg --keyserver hkps://keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 409C71B3BCFDED0A
You can then verify the authenticity of an ISO by issuing a command like the one below in a terminal, opened to the same folder as the downloads.
gpg --verify <name-of-file.iso.sig>
