    Hi,

    I have SOLVED it completely. After anticapitalista tested I looked deeply into the packages :

    cpp and gcc versions in 64bits and 32bits were different.

    First I did a “diff -aur > newfile.txt” on both package lists

    Second I managed to add or remove to the 32bits packages that were present or not present in 64bits

    At each step I rebuilt the ISO and tested (short and fast) in Virtualbox.

    Then I reverted all the packages and reinstalled them : after deactivating the backports. Of course then the packages could not be reinstalled so I either forced the versions using Synaptic or removed the packages and reinstalled them right after, using aptitude.

    At the beginning I had trouble with the cpp package, so I made one from the core antix distro using dpkg-repack and installed it using dpkg.

    Once all finished (2 or 3 evenings), I did a new ISO, tested, next updated iso-snapshot-antix, did a new ISO, tested, and the final : A MOMENT AGO, I updated antix-installer and redid the ISO.

    I didn’t believe it but IT WORKED!!!

    Here a screenshot. Next I’ll install to bare metal asap, to test deeper!

    I am happy I didn’t try to rebuild it from the antiX official again, because I would not have found what caused the issue. Guessing it came from my use of backports is something I will keep in mind from now on.

    Congrats on finding a solution and thanks for following up to describe the solution.

    will the “on hold” on antix-installer and iso-snapshot-antix stick in the next builds ?

    I would expect that the list of holds “sticks” (is preserved) when a live-remaster operation or iso-snapshot operation is performed. I have not checked whether the install-to-disk operation resets//clears the markings; you can verify the status of current markings, post-install, using the command “apt-mark showhold”
