antiX-sid iso files available

For those that like to live on the bleeding edge and build upwards from a small base, antiX has made available iso files based on Debian sid.

We offer the following completely systemd-free and elogind-free flavours for both 32 and 64 bit architecture. User can download sysVinit or runit versions.

antiX-core (c460MB) – no X, but should support most wireless (libdbus-1-3 is installed).

antiX-net (c185MB)- no X. Just enough to get you connected (wired) and ready to build (no libdbus-1-3).

The 32 bit version uses a non-pae kernel.

All versions default to using our legacy 4.9.0-294 kernel. 5.10 kernels are available.

Get them here: antiX-sid

Enjoy!

antiX-17.5 is the final point release update of our 17 series based on Debian Stretch.

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

antiX-base (c750MB) – 4 windows managers – IceWM (default), fluxbox, jwm and herbstluftwm.

antiX-core (c360MB) – no X, but should support most wireless.

antiX-net (c165MB)- no X. Just enough to get you connected (wired) and ready to build.

The 32 bit version uses a non-pae kernel.

This is mostly just an update of our last release (17.4.1), but with a newer 4.9.0-294 kernel, latest 2.9.4 IceWM, latest firefox-esr 91.4.1, improved localisation and fixed deb archive keys.
mps-youtube has been removed since it doesn’t seem to work anymore.
NOTE: elogind, libpam-elogind and libelogind0 have also been removed.

Those using previous versions of antiX-17 do not need to download this new version. Simply upgrade via apt or synaptic.
