Trying to upgrade from beta2 (21) to final release while saving my live changes did not work for me in the way I had hoped. I tried making a new live usb of the final version and then copied my old rootfs and homefs files from the beta usb to the final version usb. While the home directory contents were preserved, the new usb would not load the rootfs persistence files. It threw an error message about not being able to mount the root persistence file. So, I generated a list of all files I installed via apt on the beta usb and used that to re-install on the final version which I had installed on my hard drive. Since my home directory changes had been preserved, I only had to make a few minor changes once all my packages were installed in the final version. Happy to provide details if anyone is interested.November 20, 2021 at 7:02 pm #71300ModeratorBrian Masinick::
I am VERY HAPPY to report that I have my Thinkpad X201 back; I had loaned it to my son for a couple of months until he could obtain appropriate equipment for completing his education.
While he had it, he picked up an SSD and put it in here (temporarily) and installed Windows 10 or 11 on it and this box was QUICK with the faster drive.
He put that on another system, but I may decide to put one of them in here and see if it’ll work with antiX on this hardware.
Anyway, since my newest hardware is still struggling to run antiX and MX in default forms (must require the newer “Advanced Hardware Support), a.k.a. AHS; that does work with an older AVL/MXE 19, updated, upgraded to “21” by changing repos to “Bullseye”.
Meanwhile, my Dell Inspiron 5558 and this Thinkpad X201 work GREAT with either antiX 19, antiX 21 or MX Linux; this particular X201 is now devoted EXCLUSIVELY to antiX 21 with runit and it works GREAT!
Before loaning this system to my son, I had been testing antiX 21 B2 and it worked well; I’m happy to also report that this same machine is even better with the released software and several of the “minor” defects that were still in the last Beta have since been solved in the release as I’ve been able to personally test, both with this hardware and with the Dell Inspiron 5558. Another system where I can still use one of my long time favorite distributions!

Congratulations! I’ll install it on the SSD that arrives tomorrow 🙂 thanks team and all !!!November 24, 2021 at 10:37 pm #71690ModeratorBrian Masinick::
I have ANOTHER old laptop; this one is an older HP, circa 2008:
It WORKS, but it’s not fast; those THREE YEARS between the Thinkpad X201 and this model make a HUGE difference and so does the hardware.
I’m not sure that I’d run too many things OTHER than antiX on this box:

That Thinkpad is pretty good; the HP desktop I was running the other day works well with antiX 21 too, so I think I have FOUR pieces of hardware, including the Dell Inspiron 5558 that now have antiX 21 installed. I have the Base runit on at least 3 of ’em; that’s my current favorite.
