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

    BONUS: We now offer versions running the runit init system as well.

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

    NOTE: All base versions are antiX-19.2.1 since I re-uploaded the iso files because there was an issue with connman wifi connection. Apologies to those who downloaded antiX-19.2 base versions.

    antiX-19.2 (Hannie Schaft) 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 (c1.1GB) – 4 windows managers – IceWM (default), fluxbox, jwm and herbstluftwm plus full libreoffice suite.

    antiX-base (c700MB so fits on a cd) – 4 windows managers – IceWM (default), fluxbox, jwm and herbstluftwm.

    antiX-core (c350MB) – no X, cli-installer without UEFI support nor encryption, but should support most wireless.

    antiX-net (c140MB)- no X, cli-installer without UEFI support nor encryption. Just enough to get you connected (wired) and ready to build.

    The 32 bit version uses a non-pae kernel.

    Changes:

    * We believe we have fixed the issue when running (g)ufw firewall
    * apt-notifier included and enabled on full versions for those who prefer update notifications
    * Tray icon manager for IceWM
    * Improved and updated localisation
    * Improved cli-installer – more ‘safety’ checks added
    * nosystemd repo added to antix.list sources
    * Debian buster-backports repository enabled
    * mps-youtube includes fix for apt_key bug
    * A newer 4.9.212 kernel
    * firefox-esr (68.6.0esr)
    * libreoffice 6.4.1
    * IceWM upgraded to latest upstream version (1.6.5)
    * fluxbox upgraded to 1.3.7
    * mtpaint upgraded to version 3.49
    * runit backported from Debian sid
    * links(2) cli browser to latest upstream version (2.20.2)
    * eudev (3.2.9) instead of systemd-udev
    * elogind upgrade to 243.7
    * consolekit2 available
    * ceni network manager included, but connman is default on full and base
    * latest cherrytree (0.3.9) hierarchical note taking application
    * various upstream Debian security upgrades

    See here for full list of what’s included on antiX-19 series.

    Enjoy!

    Thank you!
    Is there any update possible to Hannie Schaft from current fully updated antiX 19/kernel 5.5 to boot as 19.2/Hannie Schaft, without re-install from scratch?
    Thanks and Regards…

    You don’t need to do anything. Just update and upgrade as usual. Install the things that are new using antiX package Installer and that should be it.

    I meant – how can I try runit while using my current antix19? Like safe switch from sysVinit.

    May not be ‘safe’, but this should work

    sudo apt install runit-init runit

    If you are asked ‘Yes do as I say!’, check to see what will be removed before doing so.

    Thanks. By ‘installing the things that are new’ I am not quite clear: Will this include showing antiX version as 19.2, not just 19 and with Hannie Schaft name during boot?

    No it won’t.
    The reason is we think it is better for support if we know what you started with.

    I did it on two systems: antix19 32bit and antx19 64bit. I wasn’t asked anything. It just removed sysV core.
    fgetty” was marked as recommended. I didn’t install it though. (Should I?)
    The rest seems ok so far.
    Init: runit runlevel: 2
