    antiX is predominantly a distro for old boxes.
    However, it also runs well on the latest and greatest.
    I’m not a gamer (apart from supertuxkart and torcs), so those of you that are, how well does antiX fare?
    Particularly in relation to games via steam. (or how about playonlinux?)
    Is steam easy to install on antiX?
    Does it work (well)?
    How can we improve the gaming experience for those that want it on antiX?
    Thanks

    Steam installed and runs no problem for me. Though I have yet to run a game in it… The tux games also seem to work just fine. (supertux, supertuxkart, extremetuxracer). Minecraft also appears to run well. Playonlinux seems to install and run as well though I do not use it to run games. I am by no means heavy into gaming so my run well could be terrible performance from a “gamer” perspective but they do install without issue and are usable from my perspective.

    installed retropie (RetroPie allows you to turn your Raspberry Pi or PC into a retro-gaming machine) following the instructions for a Debian based distro

    https://github.com/retropie/retropie-setup/wiki/Debian

    which appeared to be successful, but when starting setup – message said unsupported OS.

    Did you try to make the changes under “SteamOS hack to allow installation” ?
    __os_debian_ver=”9″ for stretch maybe

    Dont copy and paste it from here, because quotation marks are malformed through forum-software

    neglected to make that change, thanks caprea.

    setup then continued to the ‘basic install’, I selected this and it began installing further, but then seemed to get caught in a loop ?
    kept it running for 10 mins, whilst all that time my cpu was at 100%. So I assumed something was wrong and had to reboot.
