    I was unprepared for repo manager defaulting to vietnam servers though. So switched to LA in USA instead.

    How to Search for AntiX solutions to your problems


    As the war moves fronts so do mirrors.


    After replacing my video card with a Radeon, I decided to upgrade with the guide listed here and apart from a few packages which I had to reinstall manually things went smoother than I thought it would. I’ve had some nightmare upgrades in the past with Linux so I was on the edge of my seat with the reboot :-). I also had to manually edit /etc/lsb-release too…. I’ve added the edit below for easy copy/paste for anyone else who upgrades. Cheers!
