antiX-19.5 point release update

antiX-19.5 is a point release update of our 19 series based on Debian buster.

As usual we offer the following completely systemd-free (and for this particular upgrade – elogind-free) flavours for both 32 and 64 bit architecture. Available iso files for sysVinit or runit.

antiX-full (c1.2GB) – 4 windows managers – IceWM (default), fluxbox, jwm and herbstluftwm plus full libreoffice suite.

antiX-base (c700MB) – 4 windows managers – IceWM (default), fluxbox, jwm and herbstluftwm.

antiX-core (c455MB) – no X, but should support most wireless.

antiX-net (c170MB)- no X. Just enough to get you connected (wired) and ready to build.

The 32 bit version uses a non-pae kernel.

This is predominantly an update of our last release (19.4), but with a newer 4.9.0-294 kernel, latest 2.9.5 IceWM, latest firefox-esr 91.5 (full), seamonkey 2.53.10.2 (base), improved localisation and fixed deb archive keys.
mps-youtube has been removed since it doesn’t seem to work anymore.
Sakis3G replaces modem-manager(gui).
NOTE: elogind, libpam-elogind and libelogind0 have also been removed.
Instead we use seatd and consolekit.
Many upstream core Debian packages have been rebuilt to remove a hard dependency on libsystemd0/libelogind0
These include apt, cups, dbus, gvfs, openssh, policykit-1, procps, pulseaudio, rpcbind, rsyslog, samba, sane-backends, udisks2, util-linux, webkit2gtk and xorg-server

Those using previous versions of antiX-19 do not need to download this new version. Simply upgrade via apt or synaptic.
