      antiX-21 (Grup_Yorum) is based on Debian Bullseye 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. The 32 bit versions use a non-pae kernel.

      antiX-full (c1.4GB) – 4 windows managers – IceWM (default), fluxbox, jwm and herbstluftwm plus full libreoffice suite. x64 versions come with 2 kernels. Legacy 4.9 and Modern 5.10

      antiX-base (<<800MB – fits on 800MB cd) – 4 windows managers – IceWM (default), fluxbox, jwm and herbstluftwm.

      antiX-core (c440MB) – no X, cli-installer without encryption, but should support most wireless.

      antiX-net (c180MB)- no X, cli-installer without encryption. Just enough to get you connected (wired) and ready to build. For experts.

      Note 1: runit editions now set up in a similar way to Void/Artix.
      Users should be prepared to familiarize themselves with how runit services work

      Note 2: After installation of antiX-21_x64-full editions, the default kernel will be the Modern 5.10 one even if Legacy 4.9 was booted during the live boot.

                    The best antiX ever, antiX21 runit rocks!
                    Thank you all contributors for the most significant advancement of antiX technology…
                    and ευχαριστώ αντικαπιταλιστα…

                    Just noticed: When I dumped the above Greek version of ‘thank you anticapitalista’ (ευχαριστώ αντικαπιταλιστα) into Google Translate, to translate back into English, Google decided to translate it as ‘thank you capitalist’!
                    Apparently Google decided that the prefix ‘anti’ must have been a sure mistake…

                    Live antiX Boot Options (Previously posted by Xecure):


                      Thanks everyone for great work on antiX-21. I downloaded both 32-bit and 64-bit runit core
                      to try out later tonight and tomorrow.
                      Btw olsztyn, the deepl translator gets it right back and forth.


                        Many thanks to anticapitalista & all involved.
                        I remember that a fresh re-installation of the OS was not always necessary for the new version to be installed. Running “update” & “dist-upgrade” was enough. This time, it’s not the case?


                          I just realized that runit version works better on VirtualBox than sysvinit version 😮

                          Runit for the win!

                            RTWH Aachen is set as default repo. Download gave 0 bytes after 10 minutes, Cologne was finished in less than 3.
                            To avoid frustrating new users be nice to have a change of default. The Aachen repo has been patchy for months.

                            Runit 64 Bit installed and mostly setup, autostarting applications just copied over from 19.4, had to change some versions otherwise works

                            First boot and login to 185 MB Ram, very low for this quad core i5. Customised desktop with standard background and while writing this
                            in ungoogled-chromium maxing at 545 MB that is with tor daemonised and running.

                            To avoid frustrating new users be better to change the default

                            Regarding google translate from English to german and back it is hair raising, occasionaly reads as if trained by goebbels in person.
                            My lady friend in Vietnam is also horrified by the results English or German to Vietnamese and back. She says for HK Chinese it is useless.

                            Linuxdaddy, Have also found deepl to be the best option for the languages I am really conversant with.

                                Package installer didn’t get much testing so I’m not surprised some apps fail to install.
                                At least we can update it.
                                Shame about the RTWH Aachen repo – it used to be very reliable (pre-Covid).
