    I recently installed and updated Antix 17. I don’t usually use GUI but sometimes it is handy. When I do none of the browsers installed work (save for Links2 and Dillo). With Midori and Pale moon I get “illigal instruction” with Firefox just a crach window. Any ideas?

    Thanks,

    Odisej

    If Dillo works, that means X windows is probably ok. For someone to diagnose I would start with what kind of machine is it and how much memory and swap is available, etc.

    from a root terminal run, copy and paste the results of:

    inxi -Fxz

    and

    ps_mem.py

    If you have an old P4 PIII etc remove adobe-flashplugin

    Philosophers have interpreted the world in many ways; the point is to change it.

    antiX with runit - leaner and meaner.

    Anticapitalista, thank you. Firefox is working now. Like you said I had to uninstall flash. Pale moon is still not working though but I don’t really need it now.

    Midori and Qupzilla crashing on !SSE2 CPU

    So, “solved”, in the sense that the reported problem is a “known issue”.
