    I just downloaded & installed 16 onto USB. Booted it up. The host HDD is visible through Rox & SpaceFM. The problem seems to be just with 17. Other problems I had with 17 (qjackctl not working & ALSA mixer settings not surviving reboot) have also disappeared. Is there a particular reason to update to 17?

    antiX-16 is based on Debian jessie (initially released on April 26th, 2015 and supported until June 30, 2020), while antiX-17 is based on Debian/stretch (initially released on June 17th, 2017 and is supported until June 2022).

    Hmm iirc
    mkdir /mnt/sda1
    chmod 777 /mnt/sda1
    mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/sda1 (Some options here for user read/write)
    Otherwise without the options the user will likely not be able to view/edit the partition (depending on default mount setting) but root can. I cannot recall the options at the moment though…

    If Antix 16 works for me and has 16 months of life left, I’ll go for it.

    Thanks for the support.

    Hi Zee,

    I understand your reasoning. Sometimes you just need something that works. I’m having some issues with antiX-17 with regards to some video adapters. The video seems to work fine in 16 OOTB but not in 17. I had to do some config changes in 17 to get the same results I was getting OOTB with 16.

    I usually setup at least two partitions, one for 16 and one for 17. Once I sort it out I can use the partition for 16 for something else.

    It’s true, you can stay with 16 for now. But eventually the Debian Jessie base will no longer get support. I figure I need to get 17 working on my machines now so that I can get support after next year.
