Re: Install a 32 bit rpm package on MX 64 bit

It looks like alien has a "--target=<arch>" option that you might try. $ alien --help Usage: alien [options] ... --target=<arch> Set architecture of the generated package. .... Try adding --target=i386 to the alien command you ran earlier, if it works the way I think it does it will create...

Re: Accessing A shared folder on networked Win7 PC

I don't have an answer but I am chiming in with the same issue. In my case, its a win10 PC with shares. visible but not browseable. and for me its relatively recent . I wonder if the samba upgrade from about two weeks ago caused it? $ apt-history ' samba:' 2016-06-06 08:12:26 upgrade samba:amd64 2:...

Re: problem with the partition

i think your problem might be the same as this here: http://forum.mepiscommunity.org/viewtopic.php?f=92&t=39185#p377049 where the installer doesn't see a eMMC drive (and it's partitions) as something it can install to. After MX-15 was released back in December, I think BitJam & Adrian did so...

Re: alias with parameter (solved)

...also, I did not need anything additional to the command for "acp" to work for me. ... It turns out I didn't need to either after adding it to .bashrc and restarting the terminal. Another question, what file are the aliases in that I highlighted below? I didn't add them and I don't see ...

The md5sum of the new iso, antiX-16-RC1_x64-full.iso, matches the download.tuxfamily.org md5 ( http://download.tuxfamily.org/antix/Testing/...
