 Forum: VMs/Emulators   Topic: Running Mepis on either VirtualBox or VMware Workstation

I'm not aware of any MEPIS VMs that are pre-packaged for VirtualBox or VMware. I'd recommend just installing MEPIS directly from the Live DVD iso file on your HDD. With VirtualBox, this is dead simple. Just set up a blank Linux VM using Debian as the default. Provide about 15GB or so of storage and ...

The package is not useful after MX is installed. So maybe that's why it was marked as auto-removable. Testing: use it to install MX, you could try it in VirtualBox first. I think not-useful package you're referring to the install-mx dummy package. The mx-install package is the actual installer pack...

Yesterday, there was an update to mx-installer (version 0.14-3+2). In Synaptic, this package shows up under the status labeled "Installed (auto removable)". Why is this, and shouldn't it be under "Installed" instead? If so, how can I restore it to that status? Finally, how do I t...

LibreOffice Writer has started mangling my display. Printing is OK. Text has interleaved partial lines from higher in the text. Affects all documents (new and old). I'd post a screen capture (if I knew how do so). Did these problems only start after an upgrade to LibreOffice? Which version of L.O. ...

I installed MX-14 and I've installed all the normal package updates, so I guess you could say I'm running MX-14.2 although I didn't install the latest version per se. I've only had a couple of freeze-ups when trying to use the satellite view on Google Maps, which forced me to reboot. Other than that...

Temporarily enable the testrepo: deb http : //main.mepis-deb.org/mepiscr/testrepo/ mepis12cr test Should probably have Tim move the 0.26.1-1mcr120+1 version yad package to the main repo. Btw the apt-notifier update is for the MX-14.3 upgrade/point_release I temporarily enabled the testrepo and both...

An update to apt-notifier from version 1.09 to 1.13 fails in Synaptic because of a dependency issue. The error message is:

Depends: yad(>=0.26) but 0.25.1-1 is to be installed

The DeVeDe program should do essentially the same thing as QDVDAuthor.

The only other way I have discovered to backup a running system is by using fsarchiver on the command line with the -A option. IIRC fsarchiver utilizes the tar process, so either way should give the same results in about the same length of time. I've always been reluctant to back up a running syste...

Before attempting any doubtful upgrading always backup beforehand. Preferably imaging your system. I acknowledge that regulars to the forum would automatically do this but thought a mention would be worthwhile to those who may rush in. That's great advice. I use imaging software to make backups fai...
