antiX-19 isos available.

antiX-19 Marielle Franco released

antiX-19 is based on Debian Buster and systemd-free.

As usual we offer the following systemd-free flavours for both 32 and 64 bit architecture.

antiX-full (c1.1GB) – 4 windows managers – IceWM (default), fluxbox, jwm and herbstluftwm plus full libreoffice suite.

antiX-base (c700MB so fits on a cd) – 4 windows managers – IceWM (default), fluxbox, jwm and herbstluftwm.

antiX-core (c350MB) – no X, but should support most wireless.

antiX-net (c200MB)- no X. Just enough to get you connected (wired) and ready to build.

The 32 bit version uses a non-pae kernel.

o easy persistence and easy frugal installs
o remasters and respins
o legacy and 32-bit uefi and 64-bit uefi
o encrypted live usb options

Changes from antiX-17:

* connman replaces wicd and is default network manager on full and base editions
ceni (on core and net)is not included on full and base editions since it causes conflict with connman.
This means a faster boot with only a slight increase in RAM.
The connman gui is included in the startup file, but not enabled (to keep RAM usage down).

* More up to date look via a ‘new’ icon them papirus-antix. numix-square is also included.

* Ships with the very latest IceWM (1.5.5), herbstluftwm (0.7.2-1) and gnome-mpv (0.16-1)

* Using the 4.9.193 kernel. Latest 4.19.73 and 5.2.15 kernel versions easily installable.

the live system in legacy mode”.

* Time-saver and assembly line installer changes (thanks to AK-47)
Detaila here: Post-antiX-17.4 installer

* chroot-rescue added (thanks to BitJam)
“These programs are meant to supplement the fehlix live rescue system. The main thing is these allow you to get into a system even if its initrd.img is broken. It also let’s you get into multiple systems without rebooting”.

* isomount options (thanks BitJam)
“These programs are intended mainly for the command line. They make
it extrmely easy to examine antiX and MX iso file as well as iso
files from many other distros”.

* Various rox-filer right-click additions

* screenlight included (thanks to SamK)

* virtualbox-guest apps

* synaptic without zenity dependency

* gksu and gexec included/updated (thanks to skidoo)

* New live boot parameters (thanks BitJam)
========================
mk_swap_file=
Create a swap file at /live/boot-dev/swap-file. Size is in MiB
by default but M and G are also allowed. Creation
can take a long time because swap-file are not allowed to be
sparse. The default is to always use this swap partition unless
the “live_swap=all-off” cheat is used.

live_swap=off
Disable automatically enabling swap partitions. This is now the
default for encyrpted live-usbs. The swwap file above is still
used since it is on the encryped partition.

live_swap=force
Enable swap partitions even when encryption is used.

live_swap=all-off
Disable all swap including the swap file above.

notmptmp
Do not mount /tmp as tmpfs

nosavelogs
Live log files are saved under /root/Live-usb-storage/live-logs.
This parameter disables this feature. This feature is handy
because it automatically preserves the live log files across
reboots and makes them available if you mount the live-usb on a
host system.

nomicrocode
When live-init runs from the intird during a live boot we
automatcally load cpu microdoe from the linuxfs file. You can
also prepend microcode to the live initrd.gz. This wil load it
right at boot time but it makes the iso file larger and makes
the boot slightly slower.

p_static_root
Enable static root persistence. Note “persist_static” now requires
both root and home persistence to be enabled. In the past, home
persistence was optional.

f_static_root
Same as above with frugal enabled as well so it means do a
frugal install with static root persistence.

* persistence sizes increased and the persist menu F5 now includes p_static_root and f_static_root (thanks BitJam)

* tsplash boot splash (live only, for now) (thanks BitJam)
“The boot parameter is splasht=. You can give it these arguments:

aA enable/disable everything
[sf] enable late fbcondecor
bB enable/disable border
vV enable/disable verbose progress
nN enable/disable nav instructions

For example “splasht=fa” would enable late fbcondecor and
would enable all the bells and whistles”.

* New live-usb-maker features (command-line only for now) (thanks BitJam)
=======================================================

–format[=fstype]
Quick and easy way to format a data usb stick

–data-first[=fstype[,size]]
Create a data parition as the first partition on the live-usb.
Typically this will be fat32 or or ntfs for transferring data to
and from Windows.

Cloning with “toram”
You can now clone a live system when the “toram” cheat was used
so you no longer need to have a 2nd usb-stick in order to
upgrade to a full-featured live-usb. You don’t have to do
anything special, just clone as usual and LUM will figure out if
“toram” was used or not and do the right thing. You CANNOT
clone persistence files this way. This only works on
antiX-19.b1 or later. It will also work on MX-19.* when that is
released.

Update initrd on a live-usb
You can also update the live initrd directly from one of my
initrd repos (live-initrd or xlated-initrd) by specifying the
directory as the from parameter:

sudo live-usb-maker –from ../live-initrd/

This is mostly for development.

* Others

Please test and give feedback.

Post bugs here: Bugzilla

Known Issues:

* sis drivers no longer work (we’ll see if we can get it working for later editions)
* Rox and spacefm desktop RAM usage is higher than expected
* connman does not connect to sdio bluetooth controller (rtl8723bs) on Intel Compute Stick STCK1A8LFC
* The presence of /etc/asound.conf causes repeated second long gaps in HDMI sound
* cli-installer needs to be upgraded before use on full and base. (core and net use the latest versions)
* Creating an encrypted live-USB fails unless an older version of Live_USB Maker is used. The version on antiX-17 does create an encrypted Live_USB of antiX-19
* Although the antiX FAQ has been updated, some parts may need further revision

Many thanks to the antiX team, testers, supporters, and translators.
Also many thanks to the MX Linux programmers for various applications ported to antiX.

Enjoy!

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) – no X, but should support most wireless.

antiX-net (c170MB)- no X. Just enough to get you connected (wired) and ready to build.

antiX-17.2 released

antiX-17.2 (Helen Keller) released

This is primarily a point-release upgrade of antiX-17.1 (Heather Heyer) with a new L1TF/Foreshadow and Meltdown/Spectre patched kernel, various bugfixes, updated translations and some upgraded packages.

As usual we offer the following completely systemd-free flavours for both 32 and 64 bit architecture.

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.

antiX-core (c330MB) – no X, but should support most wireless.

antiX-net (c170MB)- no X. Just enough to get you connected (wired) and ready to build.

The 32 bit version uses a non-pae kernel.

So what has changed since antiX-17.1 release?

* new 4.9.126 kernel patched for L1TF/Foreshadow and Meltdown/Spectre exploits
* all packages upgraded to Debian 9.5
* eudev updated to 3.6
* firefox-esr upgraded to 60.2.2 (Quantum)
* our nosystemd version of pulseaudio included
* non free debs moved from main to nonfree in antiX repos
* improved localization
* antiX-full – gz compression is used, which makes the live iso faster to boot, but bigger in size

So, why should I use antiX?

* systemd-free!
* fast
* stable
* flexible
* light on system resources
* Install to harddrive,
* Set up and run live from an encrypted stick with persistence and remaster
* Frugal install on a partition.
* Option to run bleeding edge Debian Testing (buster) or sid.

The choice is yours!

The most extensive live usb on the planet!

So what is included?

Lots! Explore!
