for this unique Linux distro!
Fastest booting ever from HDD..
Stable, easy to use, rich documented. Installation went like a charm, and, as me guilty pleasure, conky.
My system is (for now) an Acer Swift 3, pre-installed Win10 on SSD, dual booting a HDD with MX as primary OS.
Coming from OpenSUSE, this distro is a relief! Loads of software works out-of-box, like N'flix.

Welcome to MX and to the forum!

One of the advantage of MX is the small friendly community and your chance to influence things. If you are using a "big" distro good luck asking for custom things.

Question on update mirror(s)


Post by Bouffski » Sat Aug 03, 2019 10:35 am

Hallo all!

As a question: How can I change from local mirrors to some specified mirror for my updates upgrades?
The silly thing is that I encountered this very question some years ago, as at that time I found an answer...
