antiX-21-beta2 iso files available. (Debian 11 based)

We have 2 versions for experienced users to try. These iso files default to using SysVinit.

antiX-21-b2-x64-full and antiX-21-b2-386-full are beta quality releases for experienced testers of antiX to test and provide feedback before final release.
Do not use this as your main OS, though it *might* be possible to upgrade to final (no promises).

* customized antiX 4.9.0-279 and 5.10.57 kernels on the 64 bit live iso. Please try both in your tests.
* customized antiX 4.9.0-279-486-non-pae kernel on the 32 bit live iso. (pae versions available in the repos)
* grub/UEFI live boot changes. Select live boot options (persistence, etc…) from the boot menu and sub menus rather than using the previous console menus. Please check localisation.
* New installer partition selection area, including some lvm support if lvm volume exists.
* no virtualbox-guest packages so best to test on real hardware – live, frugal or installed.
* added mesa vulkan drivers
* improved localisation of apps and live system

BIG NEWS!

We now include 2 (forked) in house apps provided by antiX user skidoo. (Many thanks).
* zzzFM replaces SpaceFM
* slimski replaces slim login manager.

Please post any feedback at antiX forums and state if you are testing live, frugal, in a virtual machine or on bare metal. We are particularly interested in testing the new UEFI live system boot menus as well as testing the installer. Virtualbox testing is welcome, but we are mainly looking for issues on real hardware(if any).

Known issue(s):

* libreoffice complains about missing java, but it still works ok.

Enjoy!

antiX-bullseye-beta1 iso files available. 64 bit only

We have 2 versions for experienced users to try. One using SysVinit, the other runit.

antiX-bullseye-b1-x64-full is a beta quality release for experienced testers of antiX to test and provide feedback.
Do not use this as your main OS.

* 4.9.0-264 and 5.10.27 kernels on the live iso. Please try both in your tests.
* grub/UEFI live boot changes
* no virtualbox-guest packages

The implementation of runit in this edition is closer to how runit works on Void and Artix linux.
Sysvinit has been replaced with various antiX runit scripts and our much smaller sysvinit package.

Please post any feedback at antiX forums and state if you are testing live, frugal, in a virtual machine or on bare metal.

Edit 11 June 2021 – Note the newly uploaded SysVinit version that fixes a bug in the repos.

antiX-19.4 runit bug and fix

There is a bug in the runit editions of antiX-19.4 (full and base) after installation via the gui installer.
Fix: As root user, remove all /etc/sv/* folders EXCEPT /etc/sv/getty-*

Alternatively, BEFORE installation, change line 25 (as root) of /usr/share/gazelle-installer-data/installer.conf to this:

#ENABLE_SERVICES=anacron,cron,sudo,rpcbind,cpufrequtils,smartmontools,acpi-support,acpid,hddtemp,dbus,gpm,saned,avahi-daemon,irqbalance,loadcpufreq,rmnologin,mdadm,lvm2,wicd,connman,connman-vpn,ofono,dundee,haveged,ssh,openVPN,bluetooth,rsync,cups,cups-browsed

antiX-19.4 (Grup Yorum) available

All new isos are bug-fix/upgrades/improvements of antiX-19 sysvinit/runit series.

No need to download if using antiX-19(.x).

antiX-19.4 (Grup_Yorum) is based on Debian Buster and is fully systemd-free.

As usual we offer the following systemd-free flavours for both 32 and 64 bit architecture, running sysvinit or runit.

antiX-full (c1.2GB) – 4 windows managers – IceWM (default), fluxbox, jwm and herbstluftwm plus full libreoffice suite.

antiX-base (<700MB – fits on a cd) – 4 windows managers – IceWM (default), fluxbox, jwm and herbstluftwm.

antiX-core (c400MB) – no X, cli-installer without UEFI support nor encryption, but should support most wireless.

antiX-net (c165MB)- no X, cli-installer without UEFI support nor encryption. Just enough to get you connected (wired) and ready to build.

The 32 bit versions use a non-pae kernel.

Note: runit editions are set up the Debian way, which is different from Void linux and Artix.
Future runit editions will be more similar to the Void/Artix way.

Changes:

* more options in the installer
* SeaMonkey browser included on full and base editions
* mps-tube removed (it seems to be broken)
* ytfzf included. It opens/downloads YouTube clips using mpv/youtube-dl
* improved and updated localisation
* newer 4.9.0-264 kernel
* firefox-esr (78.10.0esr)
* libreoffice 7.0.4~rc2
* IceWM upgraded to latest upstream version (2.3.4)
* latest firmware backported from Debian sid.
* various upstream Debian security upgrades
* base edition fits on a cd
* iso-snashot-cli replaces iso-snapshot (gui) on base edition
* removed Package Installer from base edition
* removed smtube from base edition
* removed virtualbox-guest apps from base
* frugal install to encrypted partition supported

Known issues:

* After installation, networking may need setting up again and removing/reinstalling resolvconf

Enjoy!

Added: I have also updated the 4.19 kernel versions (full and base, sysvinit and runit, x64 arch only).

New builds of 4.4 and 4.9 kernels

New builds of 4.4 and 4.9 kernels should now be available in the repos.

Newly named to 4.4.0-264 and 4.9.0-264 to avoid the libc6 message ‘Your kernel version indicates a revision number of 255 or greater’
