You should be able to run the fsck command that Tim posted from the M8.5 USB (LiveUSB ?).

The only problem I can think of would be if the sda1 partition is using a ext4 filesystem. Ext4 might not yet have been fully supported in M8.5/Lenny (I don't remember if it was or not).

A "can't write" message is (usually) an indication that the disk partition is full, is mounted read-only, or is somehow damaged. I would run fsck on /dev/sda1 from your sda4 install, making sure sda1 is unmounted. If that comes up clean, mount sda1 and run df to see how full it is. If it'...

Anticapitalista has both systemd & sysvinit versions of antiX-14R alpha3 (http://forum.mepiscommunity.org/viewtopic.php?p=349339#p349339). The only one I've looked at so far is the 64bit systemd version (antiX-14-a3-RD_x64-full). I wonder what he's doing with the sysvinit version to keep it from...

Re: Bash command history in the terminal How do you show that? I'm assuming he's talking about the history you get when pressing the up arrow key (goes back in history), or down arrow key (goes forward). The ~/.bash_history file contains the full history. You can also search your bash history using...

I'm pretty sure that someone (kmathern maybe) posted steps to convert a 32 bit OS to 64 bit. Not sure if it dealt with MX14 specifically or not. I made a couple posts about converting a MX-14.2 install to 64bit in a "64-bit rules?" thread, starting with this post here: http://forum.mepisc...

I think you should remove the "<" and ">>" angle brackets surrounding your username. So it becomes this: #!/bin/sh -e # # rc.local # # This script is executed at the end of each multiuser runlevel. # Make sure that the script will "exit 0" on success or any other # valu...

I think you need to add the lines: chown <your user name> /sys/kernel/debug/vgaswitcheroo/switch echo OFF > /sys/kernel/debug/vgaswitcheroo/switch to the /etc/rc.local file instead of /etc/rc.d/rc.local A /etc/rc.local file does exist on my MX-14 install, I think it has always been there, I don't re...

It may also have something to do with apt preferences, as far as I know, the MX version should be seen as a higher version, as the tilde character "~" is seen as lower than any of the numbers or alphabetical characters. So... 0.8.3-2~bpo should be lower than 0.8.3-2mx142. Until five or si...

Sort of related. Does anyone know what will happen to the wheezy-backports once Jessie is frozen (as Testing)? Looking at the debian-backports-changes mail list during the period that Wheezy (testing) was frozen, it looks like there was quite a bit of activity in the squeeze-backports repo: https:/...
