Re: Firefox ESR anyone ?

yeah - do use the FF ESR on certain PCs,
even though it's not as easy to install an *.deb file would be.
- do have the Install / Upgrade done pat, though.

Re: Dual boot, Re-installing Win7 but keeping MX linux

it is really that simple, but what's the reason that you need to re-install win-7 ?.
& you really should, think about shifting to win-10, if you must use the Windows System.

Re: antiX

both the MX project and the anti-X project, do use the xfce desktop, by default.

both are also independent of each other, although there is some cross- collaboration being used.
& thus they are both another Linux-distribution like Ubuntu, Knoppix are also.

Re: LiveCDs and HDDs

it may just be swapping out some memory, to your drive,
since this seems to happen after any period of web surfing.

Re: it stops updating, for some reason.

it seems to be the line starting with http://security.debian.org/
as that line always Failed, where the others were not.

although, now, an hour after changing the Mirror(s) - it's seems ok.

Re: 32 bit library installation?

mainly because JMaxwell asked this question "can you provide a nice simple explanation of the method you used?"

& there was no question asked about the MX multi-arch support. .. .

whilst it is true, that the MX system often does have multi-arch support - - that was not asked about.
:eek:

Re: 32 bit library installation?

one of the most common examples, is for the ./wine project, & as the ./wine project is still an 32 bit project & that you now have an 64 bit machine, sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386; sudo apt-get update from here https://www.codeweavers.com/support/wiki/linux/faq/Ubuntu in the Dependency Help sect...
