    Heloo friends,

    Im need antiX linux to run DNS-Sinkhole.

    It will be installed in virtual machine or separate device, I did not decide yet, but Im having some troubles with version. On my job I installed antix 17.4 ( Dont remember is it: net, core, base or full ). Im not sure but I think that it is base version since I dont have LibreOffice, and with gui it uses between 90 and 110 MB of RAM. Today I tested 17.4.1.net version and noticed that commands like: ping, curl, htop, top… simply dont work ( WHAT? Ping dont work ??? ). Is there any comparasion table of versions? I need CURL command for pi-hole package install. Whatis wrong with “net” version why there is no ping command and many other? If Im using base or full on my job, how to stop GUI, I dont need them. after configuration SSH is enough. At all what is difference between core and net and between base and full? Thank you

    Sounds like you want to use core, it’s a base command line version, whereas net is just enough to get you online so that you can build your own system. 🙂

    Hello, worker0

    I would highly recommend you use the search function in the forum (at least for future queries). For this time, I will help you out, but please know that the answers to your questions have already been answer at some point in time:

    At all what is difference between core and net and between base and full?

    https://www.antixforum.com/forums/topic/boot-process-does-not-result-in-starting-x-a-window-manager/#post-24021

    The following completely systemd-free flavours for both 32 and 64 bit architecture are offered:

    antiX-full (c1GB) – 4 windows managers – IceWM (default), fluxbox, jwm and herbstluftwm, plus full libreoffice suite
    antiX-base (c680MB so fits on a cd) – 4 windows managers – IceWM (default), fluxbox, jwm and herbstluftwm
    _______________________________________________________________________________

    Also, for expert users (who are comfortable with building up a customized debian-based linux system):

    antiX-core (c330MB) systemd-free – no X, but should support most wireless
    antiX-net (c170MB) systemd-free – no X. Just enough to get you connected (wired) and ready to build.

    Today I tested 17.4.1.net version and noticed that commands like: ping, curl, htop, top… simply dont work ( WHAT? Ping dont work ??? ). Is there any comparasion table of versions? I need CURL command for pi-hole package install. Whatis wrong with “net” version why there is no ping command and many other?

    Net contains the minimum to start installing and building the linux system yourself (not to use out of the box). Nothing else. Core has more things installed, so use it instead of NET.

    After plugging in the ethernet cable and establishing a network connection… (yes I know, how do you test without the tools…)

    apt-get update && apt-get -f install iputils-ping curl htop top ntop netstat iputils-traceroute ETC ETC

    Thank you my friends. I installed successfully pi-hole DNS blocker, and it works like charm. I get 2 errors on boot, but everything work fine so I dont think that I need to explore thesee errors.

    To dont open new topc,

    What I need to do to allow connecting to antiX-Base 17.4 via SSH from my W10 Laptop? Thanks my friends

    Now, I search for SSH

    And in the first page I find this answer:

    antiX provides an app named SSH-Conduit which does a lot of what you want and much more.

    Im confused. It is harder to setup on core version without GUI. I allready installed ssh-conduit-antix. What next 🙁 please…

    Thanks

    PS I checked https://download.tuxfamily.org/antix/docs-antiX-17/FAQ/ssh-conduit.html but it seems confusing.
    What to do to allow connections after installation to core ssh-conduit-antix? Im dont say that there is no explanation. But it seems that all explanations is for GUI.

    Thanks agains

    You may find it easier (at first) to start with the Full implementation of antiX, or at least the Base implementation until you are familiar with the specific packages you want to use to handle the tasks you are interested in. The Core release is certainly capable of doing whatever you need, but it’s called “Core” because it provides only core software, not a complete system full of applications, though the recent version includes a wireless interface. The “Net” version of antiX is even more pared down. It provides only a system core that must be customized manually using a wired network interface.

    Though antiX Full and antiX Base may not have every single application you want to use pre-installed, both of them offer a GUI-based user experience. With a knowledge of available Debian-based software (or other Linux software that can be built through tar, bz2, or other formats) you can customize any of our distributions to your heart’s content, provided you understand what to do and the implications of the software and tools chosen.

    I hope that at least points you toward an answer. Feel free to ask more specific questions and perhaps someone else can provide a more specific solution or suggestion for you. Best wishes! Brian

    Thank you, I meet Base and Full through VM. Core is enough for DNS server. Only stay unclear how to SSH into it after installing ssh-conduit-antix. On W10 OS I use Putty but it can not connect. It is much simplier to setup VNC or RDP on GUI but I dont need gui for “server”, so can you please apoint me where Im making mistakes? Thank you

    ssh-conduit-antix is a gui app so it not what you want.

    OK I realise that. I installed “openssh-server”.
    when enter command: “sudo systemctl status ssh”, I get replay: “Command not systemctl found/recognised”

    Please, what to do?

    I’m no expert but I believe systemctl is a systemd command for managing systemd services. Given there is no systemd on antiX, you should look for a systemd-free equivalent application.

    I did “sudo passwd -u root”
    then type password/new password

    then edited /etc/ssh/sshd_config line to PermitRootLogin yes

    try again as root from putty and get “Access denied”

    login as: root
    root@192.168.100.123‘s password:
    Access denied

    What Im doing wrong???

    Should be it as far as I remember.

    As root (you can use “su” to switch to the root user)
    apt-get update && apt-get -f install ssh
    nano /etc/ssh/sshd_config
    Change /add
    PermitRootLogin yes
    Ctrl+x -> y -> enter to save and exit (should show you in the bottom.)
    service sshd restart
    ifconfig (to get your machines ip address)

    Then on the other machine use port 22 and the ip with the root user specified. From another terminal (in antiX for example) the string would be
    ssh 192.168.0.101 -p 22 -l root
    Of course substitute the ip for the one of the server found via ifconfig earlier.

    A place to look beyond that may be a firewall configuration if you have one installed on the core server or setup in your router or what have you.
