Wheezy will be the "oldstable" release for approximately a year before LTS kicks in. That will probably be until April or May of 2016.

Now that Jessie is the current Debian-stable, do we need to change our Wheezy repository lists?

I installed MX-14 about a year ago. Since that time a number of newer releases have come out, I believe 14.4 is the latest. I've been applying all package updates through the normal AntiX and community repositories, but haven't explicitly done anything that would qualify as an "upgrade" or...

Smtube from the test repo still works with vevo, though.

Not only that, but SMTube lets you download the video as well.

The MX User Manager will fix this error. I had a VM install tell me that it was not or could not setup a User. I booted the installation as root and used the User Manager to create my User and it's /home. (I thought this was an error that I may have caused.) This seems like a pretty serious error. ...

Taking over a minute or tow to completely boot Windows is not uncommon. (Seeing a desktop appear on the monitor doesn't mean the system has finished booting. It still takes additional time after that before you can actually start programs running.) It does seem that every Windows installation gets s...

It is the database nepomuk creates for file name and content searches. It is a common complaint that the db grows eating space. You can turn it off in System settings.

My my /home directory was growing quite large over time. Using K4DirStat, I was able to identify a large file ~/.kde/share/apps/nepomuk/repository/main/data/vituosobackend/soprano-virtuoso.db that was buried on the HDD. After deleting that file and restarting the system, my /home directory was reduc...

The 3.12 series wheezy-backports kernel that the original MX-14 release used is no longer in the repos (wheezy-backports or CR repos). Also the 3.14 kernel that MX-14.3 that uses is no longer in the wheezy-backports repo, but Tim got the 3.14 kernel packages from the and added t...
