    Our third beta build of the upcoming antiX-19 release, based on Debian Buster and systemd-free.

    Main changes since beta2.

    * 4.9.189 ‘swapgs mitigations’ patched kernel
    * qpdfview replaces evince
    * A bit more polish added
    * Various bugfixes.

    Known issues (reported):

    * sisimedia driver for SiS video cards do not work
    * connman does not connect to sdio bluetooth controller (rtl8723bs) on Intel Compute Stick STCK1A8LFC
    * The presence of /etc/asound.conf causes repeated second long gaps in HDMI sound.

    Hopefully, users will be able to upgrade from this beta to full.

    For a full list of what is on antiX-19, see this post.

    Hello anticapitalista
    Marielle Franco 19.b3_64-full the download was flyin’! md5sum check good. b3. perception is that it is quicker to startup; to run; to install.

    live-usb-maker to usb2. First boot is into space-fluxbox. conky not On by default.
    disable automount. open antiX Linux Installer- that looks like a title change on the gui. running space-fluxbox when open the installer from fluxbox menu the desktop icons disappear. Does that mean spacefm turned off? -Yes. ps_mem.py does not list spacefm, with installer running checked this. It is at 132.5MiB. No spacefm is on the list. refresh of conky still reports space-fluxbox.
    Install to usb2-32G entire device. Success. heremfb3. Installer completed And spacefm popped back On. ps_mem.py @ 184.1MiB with spacefm listed.

    reboot. to installed system. Default rox-icewm. conky On by default.
    conky shows 181M. ps_mem.py shows 160.1MiB.
    Adjust the dual displays. Switch to space-fluxbox. The rox panel toggle is visible. ps_mem.py shows 156.6MiB.

    inxi shows the latest kernel! great stuff. Thanks.

    Downloaded the 64 bit full, md5 was good, so burned to usb with the MX USB Creator tool.
    Boots fast. Everything worked live, including sound after using the sound card chooser.

    Anyway, it was a 5 minute install.
    Booted fine and started the usual configuration, 165 packages mostly dependancies and libraries etc,
    Added some more kernels.

    So I rebooted into the 5.2.8….

    All seems to be working with this very recent kernel and buster. I am impressed.

    Graphics are OK under the nouveau, but the card runs 5-10 degrees hotter.
    So, if I run the NVIDIA installer, will it build against this 5.2.8 kernel?

    Should I try it?

    Hello anticapitalista
    19.b3 on space-fluxbox on 1440X900.
    using fluxbox menu to bring up Applications >antiX >Command Line Control Centre
    the contents of the window seemed clipped on the right side.
    widened the window screen. the window contents has five instead of started with two of the menus. Without changing the size it has two menu. Change window size geometry now five Main Menu. two of the five Main Menu are interacting with keyboard.

    yes, to prevent automounting, its necessary to kill the spacefm desktop while the instlaler is running. Its a little heavy handed, and maybe I can refine it a little, but it was the solution I knew would work.

    Wow Excited about what you all are doing. Has anyone thought of doing this for an educational system. I am considering this but want to see if anyone else has done or interested. I know I must wait till release but want to test things now. I will teach our school first Linux class. Thinking of starting with the kids learning to build a custom antiX for education. Any thoughts suggestions are welcome. (these are middle school kids, my son has a head start – dont know why???) Thanks to the AntiX team as well as those helping MX linux (what I used for school computers)

    1. Changing Grub background doesn’t work.
    Neither from the Control Centre, nor by adding it manually in /etc/default/grub (incl. update-grub).
    See screenshots 0 & 1. It doesn’t even give back the original preinstalled image, but only the default.

    2. You shouldn’t be using “Timeshift” icon for “Snapshot”. That’s confusing.
    See screenshot 2.

    3. Problems with copying to VBox shared folder.
    Files get copied though, but the error shouldn’t be there if you’re providing extensions OOTB.
    See screenshots 3 & 4.

    4. New antiX Start Menu button looks … hmmm … little bit “suboptimal”.
    See last screenshot.

    I’d like to suggest removing all JVM preinstalled themes, except for:

    1. clearlooks
    2. gold
    3. pastel

    Some of the others could be repaired, most are simply junk.

    Here only some highlights:
    See screenshots 0, 1, 2.

    I’ll not analyze and explain one by one …

    Attached are 2 JWM themes that’ll much better fit the look and feel of antiX 19.

    So no luck with the nvidia installer from the control center.

    So, if I run the NVIDIA installer, will it build against this 5.2.8 kernel?

    I ran the nvidia installer in the control center and got a failure. I tried the backports option, but under the 5.2.8 kernel, there was a “dependency problem, errors were encountered while processing nvidia-persistenced, nvidia-kernek-dkms, and nvidia driver. FAIL Failed startpar: service(s) returned failure nvidia-persistance”

    BTW it tried to install the 418.74-1 driver.

    So, I reinstalled, updated grub in my MX-18.3, and am now back in the beta3 with the default kernel 4.9.189.


    So for now, no nvidia. Should I try under a different kernel?

    @ noClue
    My favorite jwm theme is coffee_cream. It is pleasant to read, not dark and low on blue light – very friendly to the eyes.
    I have tested it on antiX-19-b3 32 bit in VirtualBox. Everything seems to work fine.

    What, do you think, needs to be repaired on it?

    I’m loving beta 3.
    I hope you don’t get rid of JWM’s black theme – it’s the only one I use.
    I noticed that synaptic is gone. But I rarely use it anymore, so I don’t mind.
    I’m very excited on how it’s coming together!
    Thank you so much!

    synaptic is still there.
    It is in the control center under system.

    OK, my reinstallation using the stock 4.9.189 works after the nvidia installation. (418.74).

    So, I tried adding the 4.19 kernel with the package installer, though it seems to work, upon reboot, it is not there ?!?!?!

    @entropyfoe – I’m not too surprised that nvidia fails to build on the 5.2.8 kernel.
    Have you tried with the sgfxi script?
