Merry Christmas to all, and a Happy New Year. And many thanks to the Development Team for the Christmas present of MX17. :cool: It is a balmy 37 degrees here in Eastern Alabama.

Re: MX Linux rising fast on Distrowatch

Thank you, AntiX and MX Developers and Testers. Without you we would still be an offshoot of AntiX. I have been using MX since the first release. I see no reason to change except, for updates. MX 16.1 will be my daily driver until MX-17 comes out. Jim205

Re: Installation woes and a GRUB headache - Part 2

Your inxi -Fxxx post indicates you only boot MX-16 as necessary to run commands. Please scroll up to the top of the page and on the right side at the top you will find Manuals. Click on Manuals on the page, click on MX-16 PDF or HTML. Scroll down to section 3.2. After you read this section, go to se...

Re: Installation woes and a GRUB headache - Part 2

There is no problem with the MX-16 installer. It will install the OP any place you tell it to. Please post the output of inxi -Fxxx, on your running copy of MX-16. This will explain a lot. Jim205 Registered Linux User 423183

Re: Installation woes and a GRUB headache - Part 2

Please compare post #35 and post #36, to see the difference in F-stab. Post #35 indicates that NTFS-3G file system is the first to get loaded. MX-16 wants ext 4 to be loaded first. The simplyeist way to correct your problem is, as I see it, to download a new fresh copy of MX-16, or if you prefer, MX...

Re: Installing on separate HDD - where to put GRUB? Still unresolved!

1. With a live session of MX-16 running, insert usb you want to write to 2. Go to MX tools, and click on live usb maker. 3. When session starts, make sure correct usb is selected as target to write to. 4. Carefully read section 6.6.2 to 6.6.4 of the users man. If still unsure, watch D. O.s Videos on...

Re: Installing on separate HDD - where to put GRUB? Still unresolved!

Have you tried MX tools snapshot maker? This makes a live snapshot of you running system. It sets all boot flags. Then select boot from USB in bios. Then you are all set. Jim205

Re: How can one trust a Linux distribution?

@kindlight, are you currently using any distro regularly? If yes, which one? If it's not Debian or Ubuntu or a derivative of either, why do you prefer it to Debian/Ubuntu? If no, what OS do you use? Why do you use it rather than a Linux distro? Does it satisfy your trust/safety/security concerns? I...
