Check their site for a statement. If there is no statement then contact the site Admin. They go down occasionally.

For those running Mepis 11 the BASH update came from the LTS repo. I was surprised it didn't come from the security one.

Would just like to note that though it sounds simple the results from the above only fix the first found one. In light of the information released from the first bug there have been several others discovered over the past few days since the first. I had another bash upgrade since the first. Yesterd...

Hate to ruin the fun, but Mepis is 92nd on the 6 month Distrowatch list. And still my Daily Driver/Production Machine. Might be a couple of years before I have to get serious about using anything else. And MX (with XFCE or KDE) is already ready for prime time it seems to me.

This capability is the direct result of the Police getting into people's phones without a Search Warrant. Or surreptitiously. But it also is a protection for the phones owners from thieves using that information. SCOTUS already protects the information on the phones unless there's a Warrant. (all ri...

Following the MX Documentation to convert MX14.x to KDE4-Standard is simple and straightforward. There were no 'gotcha's' noted here. Not even when I did it a little differently on another installation. I boot into MX14 with KDE about half the time so I can keep up to speed with the interface. It's ...

An MX14 install has MX Package Manager. Open it and click on Window Manager. Choose KDE4-standard. This will install the current Stable version of KDE4. (If you want Testing you'll need to change the repositories. I find Stable does everything I need without any hassles.) There is a guide for doing ...
