For those using antiX-13 series with the 3.7.10 kernel, you should update the latest in the antiX stable repositories.
The updated kernel fixes the bug of building applications that need to be built with Wheezy's libs and gcc.

Without going into the details, if you want to run antiX-13 series tied to Wheezy and want to install for example Virtualbox and nvidia drivers, you MUST install the latest 3.7.10.antix.7 kernel for your architecture.

If you are running Testing or Sid repos, it is not needed. Users can also install much more up to date kernels. 3.11.5 is available and 3.12.0 is being worked on.

The kernel must be installed 'man'ually.

Here is the way to do it in a root terminal.

You antix.list in etc/apt/sources.d should look like this:
Code:

# Use with Debian Wheezy repository. Set as default for antiX-13.2.
deb http://antix.daveserver.info/stable stable main 
# Use with Debian Testing (or Sid) repositories.
#deb http://antix.daveserver.info/testing testing main


32 bit:
Code:
apt-get update && apt-get install linux-image-3.7.10-antix.7-486-smp linux-headers-3.7.10-antix.7-486-smp


64 bit:
Code:
apt-get update && apt-get install linux-image-3.7.10-antix.7-amd64-smp linux-headers-3.7.10-antix.7-amd64-smp


Then you will need to update the grub menu. This is if using default antiX grub.
Code:
update-grub


For a gui way to do this using synaptic, see the post by pcpavnz here:

Note, post upgrade, check your /boot/grub/menu.lst

On mine, update-grub only added the entry for the later kernel, it was not set as the default boot option, which turned out OK for me because I was able to test it first, found my ATI graphics failed, but had to keep on working, so I simply rebooted into the older kernel and will address the issue when I have time.


Code:
timeout 5

foreground ffffff

On mine. I simply erase the top stanza (left click, highlight, and click)
Code:
title  antiX at sda1, kernel 3.7.10-antix.5-amd64-smp
root   (hd0,0)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-3.7.10-antix.5-amd64-smp root=/dev/sda1 quiet
initrd /boot/initrd.img-3.7.10-antix.5-amd64-smp
boot
and that way when I upgrade the kernel. My newest just shows at the top of the list automagically.

After a install. The first thing I do as root in terminal is

Code:
apt-get update


See what happens after that.

If you don't like all the extra scrolling output at boottime, add the "quiet" cheat code to your kernel boot line.
