Hello Everyone,

I'm curious to know what happens with existing versions of antix 15.1 & antix 16 when a new version of antix is released. Are the existing versions still receiving support? Just curious as I'm still using antix 16 and it's working great. :)

luckily for you antiX-16 is the latest.

as far as security upgrades and such, as long as the debian repos in use are maintained, you should be good. for instance, if you are using the "stable" repos, you will received security upgrades as long as debian provides them, which currently is looking like a pretty long time.

Hello dolphin_oracle,

That is great news to hear about Antix 16 which is my favorite lightweight distro.
Works well on my 10 year old Dell Precision 380 with it's "flamethrower" Pentium D 820 Smithfield processor.

Thanks

Oh yeah, I know that one. I had the 3.2 ghz version in a dell dimension, along with an nvidia graphics card. Played tie fighter like a son-of-a-gun, and also made my feat sweat.

Yup that's the one and fortunately dell put a big ole heat sink and 120mm fan on it so it does actually run very cool by touch.
Where I used to work we retired several of these so naturally I had to save them from the dumpster minus hard drives.

Year born 04/18/2006 check out the graphics card NVIDIA NV44 [Quadro NVS 285]. :lol:
For what it is it, runs great with Antix 16 and also MX-16. :)

Anyway they run great with Antix either flavor. :D
Long Live Antix and old computers and old computer hardware. :wink:

I probably , besides Anti. Hold the record here for running my installs into the ground. I ran AntiX 11 for years.

how-to-break-your-antix-11-install-t4637.html

dpkg-error-processing-var-cache-apt-archives-tzdatasolved-t3100.html

halevt-sub-process-usr-bin-dpkg-returned-an-error-code-1-t2995.html

The only reason I re-installed to version 15. I wanted the new antixcc. Which changed paths in the script from 11 to 15.

I saw Anti post once though with a AntiX 6 desktop with a 4.x liqourix or debian kernel.

Debian and AntiX are brothers from different mothers. One can shoe horn Debian into staying current. Same goes for AntiX.
It just takes some skill, patience, stubborness, and time. Oh yeah. Lot's of band width.
