I have made available 4.3 kernels for those that want/need them.
They have been built with gcc5

Find them in the antiX testing repo

or am I using the wrong search phrase for apt. The reason I am asking

Code:
$ linuxinfo
Linux biker 4.2.1-antix.2-686-pae #7 SMP PREEMPT Fri Oct 2 00:01:14 EEST 2015
Four Intel Unknown 1466MHz processors, 19157.56 total bogomips, 8027M RAM
System library 2.19.0


As you can see. I am running 32 bit AntiX

Code:
$ inxi -S
System:    Host: biker Kernel: 4.2.1-antix.2-686-pae i686 (32 bit)
           Desktop: Fluxbox 1.3.5
           Distro: antiX-15-V_386-full Killah P 30 June 2015


on 8 gig of ram. So the i486 4.3 will be passed by without pae support by me. I did not see any 64 bit 4.3 ones either but maybe my search term sux.
Edit: just a double check
Code:
$ apt search linux-image-4.3.0

linux-image-4.3.0-gnu-antix.2-486-smp/testing 4.3.0-gnu-antix.2-486-smp-2 i386
  Linux kernel, version 4.3.0-gnu-antix.2-486-smp


So I guess that is it for now. Just added info for the thread I guess.

I have antiX kernels running on one of my instances and Liquorix kernels on another one. Both seem to be running well. I don't believe I've installed the antiX 4.3 kernel anywhere yet. Next time I update one of my systems I'll look into it.

Both antiX 15 and MX are running well. I have one antiX 15 running from Stable, another one running against Testing, and I have an instance of MX-14.4 on one system and a test version of MX-15 on another. I also have a few "Frugal" instances out there somewhere.

I really have not been experimenting with them very much, though I do periodically oscillate between them. Both of my laptops are pre-2010 (I believe they are 2007-2008 vintage in terms of their engineering). Both are mechanically sound and have not had a single hardware issue yet. Neither of them runs full featured desktops like GNOME or KDE very well, though they can handle them at this point. I typically use Xfce as my default desktop, but more and more I'm reverting to using IceWM or fvwm-crystal because I simply do not need much desktop integration for my primarily Web-based activities.

So I haven't done a lot of heavy testing recently; I have a good job which keeps me busy and an active personal family life.

What I can tell you with certainty is that both antiX and MX-1x are perfect for my needs. Both are easy to install and use, flexible enough that when the "geek in me" wants to come out, I can experiment to my heart's content, but stable enough that I can pretty much leave them alone when I'm busy. I usually do a dist-upgrade any time I run a particular distribution unless it is going through a transition period like Sid does occasionally; then I leave them alone.

Debian Sid, antiX-15, and MX-14 and 15 are my main distributions; I have all of them humming very smoothly right now.
