ISO download mirrors

How to use this map

(NB: an alternate method of selecting the ISO you want is to go through the detailed table in the Wiki.)

This is a map of the mirrors of MX Linux ISOs that are known to us. Use the “+/-” buttons or your scroll wheel to enlarge the map and drag it as needed in order to find the mirror that you want, usually the one closest to you. Then click on the marker and a panel will open on the left side.

Panel open showing URLs

Click on the URL for the “ISO Mirror” to see the Index of the mirror. The exact layout of the Index can vary. In the example below, the repo has a top-level directory for “mx-linux” that contains two more directories: MX (shown) and antiX.

Finally, click on the folder you are looking for–usually “Final”–to see the contents.

Contents of the Final directory

The ISOs to download are the biggest in size, and you will want to select according to architecture and version by clicking the link to begin the download. In the example above:

  • “1” = the ISO for 32 bit older systems (386); XFCE/Fluxbox
  • “2” = the ISO for 64 bit standard systems (x64); XFCE/Fluxbox
  • “3” = the ISO for 64 bit advanced hardware systems (x64); XFCE/Fluxbox
  • “4” = the ISO for 64 bit advanced hardware systems (x64); KDE [not shown]

To check the integrity of the downloaded ISO in Linux, click to download the md5 or sha256 file into the same folder where the ISO is, and use the appropriate action below:

  • md5: right-click the downloaded md5 file > Check data integrity.
  • sha256: open a terminal and type: sha256sum <File name of ISO>, then compare with the number above. NOTE: the Snapshots use sha512 instead so change the command accordingly.
  • Consult the Wiki for other options, including signatures.

In MS Windows®, the easiest way to ensure integrity (as well as to create the live USB) is to use the USB formatting utility Rufus, which automatically runs a check.

Mirror status

  • The most recent information can be reviewed in the running list.
  • Mirrors may not yet contain a very recent release, and will show a “404 Not found” until they do.

    • There is a link at the top of the page to use an alternative table-form listing similar to what we had before, so no one is required to go through the map.

      We are experiencing problems with the mirrors, as you point out. But the powerful SourceForge repo (linked form the Download page) and the torrents are working flawlessly and the vast majority of users are following that route without difficulty.

  1. Hi i downloaded the 386 iso for august 2020
    the md5 file does not match nor any of the number files
    md5 58bf8042b2ed596cddeadae35e8097e1 this is what the file reads
    First time trying MX-LINUX

    • If the md5 numbers do not match it most likely means the download file is corrupted. I’ve had this happen to me before, but it’s kind of unusual. What I did was delete the download file and try again. I know it can take a long time to download, especially if you are on dialup or even dsl can take good long time to download. Trust me, you don’t want to try running a corrupted download .iso. It’s doubtful it will even boot. But if it does it won’t work right. Just bite the bullet and try again. Make sure you compare the md5 and the sha256 numbers. I use gtkhash, but I’m already running Linux Mint.
