I'm using MX-14 on a refurbed Win 8 machine and UEFI boot it, though not directly, I chainload it from a Xubuntu 14.04-64bit install.

Refind will also UEFI boot it if you install a -amd64 kernel (such as: linux-image-3.16-0.bpo.3-amd64)

I think you can use apt-mark to set it's status to manual and the "Installed (auto removable)" will go away.
Code:
apt-mark manual mx-installer


Btw, I'm not able to simulate this. The installer-mx package is the one that I think would be classified as autoremovable instead of mx-installer.

build-essential comes pre-installed in MX. module-assistant is also preinstalled. But my point was that build-essential doesn't do anything as far as making sure that the kernel headers are installed. I think build-essential makes sure the following are installed $ cat /usr/share/build-essential/es...

Installing build-essential won't install the headers. Module-assistant's `m-a prepare` command will install headers and also install build-essential, and a few other things: Here's a snippet of the module-assistant manpage man module-assistant ... prepare Tries to determine the name of the required ...

I don't remember for sure, I think I had to manually remove the docs-mx & installer-mx packages.

I hadn't noticed that it wasn't set at dist-upgrade. The settings in Synaptic don't carry over I guess. Going all the way back to the original version of the apt-notifier that was first used with Mepis 8.5, it's default has always been to do a `apt-get upgrade`. The upgrade method is easily configu...

Two of the packages (docs-mx & installer-mx) are being held back because they are now transitional/dummy packages. They have dependencies that require new packages to be installed (mx-docs & mx-installer). The apt-notifier's default behaviour is to do a 'apt-get upgrade' which doesn't allow ...

I've added all the translations that people have posted so far to the apt-notifier.py script. Thanks all for your help.

Still need the el (Greek) & nl (Dutch) translations.
