      Hey Rok: re. “Blew away the antX install with operator error.”
      Do you still have the physical space and partition available to
      install an antiX instance alongside MX Linux or did you overwrite
      the entire system with that “Blew away…” moment?

      I usually have multiple distributions, at least on my 2-3 newest
      systems, though I do single boot a few of the old ones; almost always
      have antiX on those, but I have found through experimentation that
      MX Linux also works on a lot of old hardware too.

        I do have 39 gig of space for it. Been busy with computers not turning on .
        Life sux lately. At least the shop replacement is staying together.
        It is what I get for running on older gear and power dips around here locally lately.
        My IBM desktop went down today. It had antiX 23 on it. It quit turning on.
        NUCs I bought seem worthless with the breakage on those lately. Both quit turning on.
        My laptops are all that is working.

        Sometimes I drive a crooked road to get my mind straight.
        I don't suffer from insanity. I enjoy every minute off it.
        Motorcycle racing is rocket science.

          Do you have any power surge/power cord extensions that moderate those power fluctuations?
          I usually power down completely if I’m expecting bad weather.
          One time many years ago when I still lived in Concord, NH we had
          an electrical storm. I *think* my neighbor across the street had a
          lightning strike in their back yard. I lost a power supply on a
          computer that was plugged in, but I don’t think it was physically
          powered on, so that electrical surge actually damaged a LOT of
          things in the area. I know this because the next day I strolled
          into nearby Grolen Communications, where I’d previously purchased
          power supplies and other computer electrical parts.

          They were ALSO affected, their POS terminals were damaged so it
          was either cash or buy later. They GAVE me a power supply at no
          charge that day as a good will gesture and as a repeat customer.
          Needless to say they had an insurance loss and loss of business
          for a day or two until their equipment could be replaced; showing
          good will to the customers who did show up that day undoubtedly
          improved their local reputation and guys like me remember it MANY
          years later.

            The stores in Concord, NH and Portsmouth, NH were later closed so the small company could
            focus their energy in their primary area of expertise – “by Y2K it was time for GroLen to downsize or face the extinction that many computer companies faced during those trying times. GroLen decided to become more efficient and to concentrate on computer repair, network integration and service. Concord,Portsmouth and the school house closed. … “Only the most proficient employees remained and GroLen retooled itself into becoming truly the area’s most expert at troubleshooting computer problems, protecting and removing spyware and basic affordable web page development and hosting.”

                Notice the subtle difference between this and my previous entry, almost, but not quite the exact same configuration.
                I have multiple instances installed, so I’m free to experiment as much as I desire or as little as I desire, and I still have more options and choices available, including USB instances with ALMOST a complete system, just maybe not always 100% up-to-date.

                    The post https://www.antixforum.com/forums/topic/on-occasion-no-internet-at-startup/#post-123921 seems to be helpful in the startup and general reliability of the Connman network manager approach. For those where this IS NOT the case, I recommend using antix-wifi-switch or configure your system explicitly to use our Ceni network manager. Other choices are possible, but these two options are still supported and avoid bringing in systemd services, hence they are recommended in order to keep the software systemd free.

                      For NFL fans in Michigan – the Detroit Lions defeated the Chicago Bears this afternoon to continue their position as a top five
                      team in the NFL – a HUGE change for a team which last won an NFL title in 1957 – so of the original NFL teams they have gone
                      the longest without a championship; meanwhile all of the other Detroit teams, the Red Wings (hockey), the Tigers (baseball),
                      and the Pistons (basketball) have all won multiple championships over the past 50 years but NOT Detroit’s professional
                      football team. They may not win it all this year either, but they do have a good chance to enter the postseason playoff
                      picture, where anything is then possible.

                      From the previous post, those changes to the Connman startup, opening up the network manager before the graphical user
                      interface is initializezd has been working out well here; implemented it on all three of my antiX instances on my HP-14
                      and so far it has been a success!

                        One of the other places I have worked is Boston and the Boston Celtics defeated the Memphis Grizzlies in a close game, 102-100.

                        Continued success with the Connman change mentioned earlier.

                                Running on a new USB Flash Drive with a remastered instance of antiX 23 Live.
                                Works great!

                                  Since having the excellent results with a Live antiX 23 environment, I tried running Live multiple ways.
                                  The method that’s been working out best for my particular scenarios has been to use an installed instance,
                                  put whatever software configuration I want, update not only packages, but also self-installed
                                  versions of Web browsers in my own private directory.

                                  For this configuration, taking an installed instance and running ISO Snapshot, then Live USB Maker
                                  creates a USB Flash Drive that is the functional equivalent of the installed version.

                                  I’ve had less success, some at times, with Frugal persistence; however if I remaster my configuration,
                                  I’m having issues obtaining the results I’m expecting, so undoubtedly I am combining features that
                                  appear to compete with one another, either overwriting stuff or consuming too much space.

                                  So my advice to would be experimenters – go with one approach or another – mixing them will only
                                  work if you use one specific method and stick with it for that live image. I suppose if you have
                                  intimate knowledge of every step it will be possible to use that knowledge to your advantage;
                                  otherwise keep it simple; use one thing and decide whether to continue to use it or another
                                  method; if you change approaches, I recommend rewriting a known working ISO image and proceed
                                  from it.
