I installed the old T42 with AntiX; AntiX lasted until one of their rolling kernels killed it.

antiX has never had a rolling kernel. User has to upgrade their kernels manually.

Re: More compact but full-featured install? (15 GB too much)

AntiX Core is probably the way to go if you want to roll your own. It has all the utilities you will need already install and set up, plus the x-server and window manager already configured. Kind of gives you a more complete base to build on than Debian Net-Install (though AntiX is built on Debian)...

antiX uses xmms (not xmms2, which is completely different). You could add the antiX repo to your sources list to get it # Use with Debian Stable/stretch repositories. Set as default for antiX-17. Note new repos deb http://repo.antixlinux.com/stretch stretch main then apt-get update apt-get install x...

Re: Installing Mint as dual-boot on old WinXP laptop

AntiX is great and runs amazingly well, considering it has a wealth of software included, maybe the most complete of the minis, however, and that's my gripe with it too; why not offering a 'minimal' antiX if the target are low-spec machines? Stop griping! antiX offers full (700MB), base (520MB), co...

Re: I installed Devuan 1.0 Beta (netinst)...

I liked antiX but the thing that annoyed me was there snapshot tool to convert your HDD install into a live disk. :( Unlike Refracta Tools It doesn't take a true snapshot and excludes things including drivers unless you piddle about with conf files and then it didn't work correctly. What is a true ...

Re: Need Linux distro recommendation

I have two computers here I am preparing for friends of mine. Both of them are old and underpowered. I tried several different distros, and wound up putting Antix MX-14 on both of them. They claim it will run on a Pentium II 266 MHz with 64 megs of RAM. It runs well on both of the computers I insta...

Re: Install Linux Mint on old Laptop...

For such low RAM, use the cli-installer script. It appears as a choice in the boot menu.

BTW Don't expect miracles trying to run a modern OS on a box that is effectively 15 years old.

Re: [SOLVED] This information should be included in everyone

The latest antiX version of inxi-gui uses yad rather than zenity.

Depends: yad, leafpad, gksu, roxterm though you can edit the script to your own choosing of course.

The latest .deb can be downloaded from here.
