Ugrades in antiX stretch

There will be some upgrades in the stretch antiX repositories that users should note.

smxi-inxi-antix – inxi now uses perl rather than bash so should run faster. Also, there is now an /etc/inxi.conf file that has inxi -U upgrade disabled (set to false).

remaster-antix scripts – new default option when remastering set to lz4 compression. This makes the remaster process much faster and cooler. However, the final linuxfs file is much bigger than one created by xz or gzip (c66% larger).
Users can still choose gzip, xz for their compression.

Note: Running frugal install on my laptop (i5 6GB RAM, ssd hard drive), lz4 is fantastic. xz is much better though when running live from a small (4GB), slow usb stick (usb2 – no usb3 on this old laptop).

Upgrades in antiX testing and sid repos

There has been upgrades to slim and eudev that will soon hit the repositories.

With slim upgrade, you *should* be prompted to keep your existing sim.conf. You should do so by continuing via Enter key, as the default is to keep your version of slim.conf. Otherwise, if you have set autologin, you will have to do it again.

Since eudev replaces udev, all *should* be ok, but check before blindly upgrading.

Post on the forums if there are any issues or queries.
