antiX-19.4 (Grup Yorum) available

All new isos are bug-fix/upgrades/improvements of antiX-19 sysvinit/runit series.

No need to download if using antiX-19(.x).

antiX-19.4 (Grup_Yorum) is based on Debian Buster and is fully systemd-free.

As usual we offer the following systemd-free flavours for both 32 and 64 bit architecture, running sysvinit or runit.

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

antiX-base (<700MB – fits on a cd) – 4 windows managers – IceWM (default), fluxbox, jwm and herbstluftwm.

antiX-core (c400MB) – no X, cli-installer without UEFI support nor encryption, but should support most wireless.

antiX-net (c165MB)- no X, cli-installer without UEFI support nor encryption. Just enough to get you connected (wired) and ready to build.

The 32 bit versions use a non-pae kernel.

Note: runit editions are set up the Debian way, which is different from Void linux and Artix.
Future runit editions will be more similar to the Void/Artix way.

  1. I thought this one booted really fast. Fought the installer and got lost (surely I said, preserve /home…but it was the 10th time tryin’ so…turns with btrfsck are coming.)
    Got this old Turion II to boot UEFI (couldn’t tell if fell back to Legacy mode?! But no secure boot mode to flip myself (of course.)) and to install EFI partitions, but it’s inconsistent as to what it demands and that /boot be in FATxx ….agh.
    Chose defaults, and it smartly picked a nice swap setup and installed well (but I had to go to BIOS and prioritize ‘Expansion Bay (UEFI)’ over ‘OS Boot Selector’) even doing crypto. Wow.
