Re: Gone

Hey, MX could probably have destroyed his system with that command even faster! We don't block it. The *nix philosophy is to give the root user all the rope they need to hang themselves, no questions asked. It may be too late for the poor guy to use extundelete, too. I wonder if a GUI for extundele...

Re: Please translate new app mx-test-repo-installer

@Jerry, I simply wrote in [ca] line instead of [de] by mistake and I recommend in this case not to translate any words for the name.

Re: antix 16 core xfce

You can create it yourself. Or install from antix-base, or remove the other desktops.
Otherwise MX15 is the Xfce distro par exellence.

Re: MX 15 Repository: The linux-liquorix kernel thread

Refering to my previous post, FPU Raytracing on 4.5-1-liquorix takes the same 68 seconds as on the previous liquorix and antix kernels.
Everything works however.

Re: Can anyone recommend an ultrabook that works well with M

Sorry for not being able to tell you a specific model, but I would recommend a different approach. Find a model you like a search ('linux+<model_name>') for confirmation that any Linux distro is running on it. Then you can look for issues and if they aren't overwhelming, buy the notebook. There shou...

Re: Can anyone recommend an ultrabook that works well with M

If you choose too new hardware (Intel Skylake) you might need a very recent kernel.
Is MX good with Skylakes? 4.2.0-0.bpo.1-amd64 might be already too old...

Re: MX 15 Repository: The linux-liquorix kernel thread

I "measured" a strange "performance boost" with 4.5 series kernel on my Intel Atom 230 nettop. The FPU Raytracing benchmark was consistently (I ran 4 tests for each kernel) aroung 37 seconds while on other kenrels it was around 47 or 54 or 68. I didn't realise any improvement in everyday usage, howe...

I can't stand that reviewer and will neither cheer about a positive review nor whine about a negative one.

Re: New app mx-system-sounds requires translations

Transifex is done. I will look what else to do there.
Edit: Everything translated, only unplug-drive.sh doesn't let me do anything.
