Not sure about more point releases, it depends on what the Dev Team thinks as development goes on. Development on MX-15 will start in the Fall, no definite timeline anywhere ATM. I could see having another point release or two. I would hold off any serious development of MX-15 until Jessie gets clo...

From what I'm seeing DM makes changes to the /etc/fstab file without using the "Save" function.

Just checking (or clearing) a checkbox in the "Enable" column causes it to immediately write changes to fstab.

How do I use dd to create a USB? Just bitwise copy the iso file, then syslinux the USB partition (or just mark it bootable in the partitioning software)? The installer creators generally do more than that, don't they? All you need to use is the `dd` command. You don't need to use syslinux on it, or...

so which one is the cfdisk on mx14?
MX-14 uses the cfdisk executable from the gnu-fdisk package.

The cfdisk executable in MX-14 is supplied by the gnu-fdisk package $ dpkg -L gnu-fdisk /. /usr /usr/share /usr/share/info /usr/share/info/cfdisk.info.gz /usr/share/info/fdisk.info.gz /usr/share/man /usr/share/man/man8 /usr/share/man/man8/fdisk.8.gz package diverts others to: /usr/share/man/man8/fdi...

The boot message is "looking for btrfs systems" or words to that effect. Mepis 11/12 does the same, but I suppressed it there by removing the btrfs-tools package. That didn't seem to work on MX, but I didn't pursue it. I first started seeing that message a year or so ago on my sid install...

why did mx decide to go with the btrfs filesystem as opposed to something more main stream like ext4 or ext3? if the answer is that antix choose it does anyone know why they choose it? like, does it store data more compactly? I've not seen btrfs here - I took the default ext4. Early in the bootup o...

Are you still getting the following type of fail message? (it's from one of the images you posted at the Kubuntu forum) Kernel panic - not syncing: No working init found. Try passing init= option to kernel. See Linux Documentation/init.txt for guidance. If so, I found a thread at the Ubuntu forum th...

Silent Observer, this is probably a silly suggestion you've already tried, but instead of manually editing the menu.lst file in your Mepis 11 installation, have you tried just updating grub from Mepis? Maybe Mepis' grub will recognise your Kubuntu partition it in a way that works for legacy grub. A...
