Re: MX 17 Repository: The Waterfox Thread (64-bit only)

Many thanks Stevo.

antiX uses the Debian stretch version of llvm ie llvm-3.8.
Adding the buster repos to get llvm-7 drags in other apps not in stretch eg gcc-9-base so I'll decline that option.

Waterfox 56.2.13 is now available in our main repo! It also requires a newer version of cargo and rustc than we have in MX18 to build, but I just found how to install the Buster versions on a Stretch base and use them for the build with this one simple trick !

AntixLabs_snapshot-20190427_1616.iso just flushed my tmpfs and took the whole system with it.

Re: unable to grub1 boot new install MX18.

Since you are using legacy grub (you mention menu.lst), you will need to edit the provided grub.entry to make it grub1 compliant.

Maybe it's like Cockney rhyming slang: loo = Waterloo = water, short for water closet.
Not cockney, certainly slang. It is used all over the UK (and as far as I know also in Australia).
