            Cant access ftp in zzzfm

            This is a debian issue. The package curlftpfs you need for this functionality in zzzfm is missing in debian bookworm for some strange reason, see , while it is present in bullseye and also in sid.

            Please use gFTP from the antiX main menu, section internet until the situation is resolved by debian. This is present by default in antiX 23.1 full.

            Update: Alternative.

            As reported by this site you can install the old package from bullseye as an alien package on bookworm:

            $ wget
            $ sudo apt install ./curlftpfs_0.9.2-9+b1_amd64.deb

            (In case you have a 32 bit system, select the package download and checksum from )

            Please make sure to check the checksum of the downloaded package against the information found at the bottom of this site: before installing it:

            $ shasum -a256 ./curlftpfs_0.9.2-9+b1_amd64.deb

            which must return the checksum string found on the above page.
            If not, retry the download.

            (Have not tested this workaround myself until now, but I reckon zzzFM will be able to mount remote folders on ftp servers after this again.)

            Tested: This works like a charm on antiX 23.1 full runit 64 bit. Once you have installed this missing package as an alien from the oldstable debian version bullseye, zzzFM connects cleanly to remote ftp and sftp servers, and mounts the folders so you can access the files in them by zzzFM, no need to use gFTP.

            Additional hint: You are expected to enter the credentials along the URL following the pattern in zzzFM:

              Thanks for your help Robin It was really helpful The Only thing stops me right now is mysql i have a question Is mysql is installable and usable in antiX 23.1 runit I tested in Antix 23 Sysvinit and It worked alright but when i tried in antix 23.1 runit live boot during installation an error came “Starting Mysql server… Unable to start mysql server error during installation ” and mysql is imp for me as now it is a subject in semester so Thats the only thing stops me right now


                I have never used mysql, but maybe this could help you to figure how to make it work on a runit based system like antiX :


                It contains the needed runit service script for mariadb, which is a fork of mysql.

                When downloading that package from Artix (sic!) manually and extract it, you’ll get a single script named run to be placed in
                It contains the lines:

                [ ! -d /run/mysqld ] && mkdir -p /run/mysqld
                chown mysql:mysql /run/mysqld
                exec chpst -u mysql:mysql mysqld --user=mysql 2>&1

                I hope you can derive from that what you need to add to your system to make mysql start properly on antiX 23.1 runit.

                P.S.: I’d suggest to place different questions always in separate threads with proper header line so users can find the solutions found by reading the header line later. Also, then you’ll get more answers on the second issue not mentioned by the header line too.

                  Thanks for the Help I will try it
