Since I and other members seem to have fits booting the development release kernels on older gear like my IBM T23, IBM M41 Tower.

I had a idea last night. How about using the MX-14 Kernel for the 32 bit Isos?
I mention this because MX-14 32bit will boot on my gear that AntiX 14 32 bit will not.

I have a running MX-14 install going on my IBM M41. It runs OK but would benefit from running a Window Manager (already set up) instead of a XFCE Desktop Environment on its ancient Specs.

Anyways. Just in case it never crossed anyones mind. I figured I'd throw it out there.
As always. No pressure from me. :D

My old ones also are able to boot MX-14 32 bit, and also not able to run antiX 14, but to be honest, as a distro on that hardware, the MX-14 is too slow to work on happily. But, maybe if that kernel would fix the antiX boot problems, easily, it would be worth trying...

I am too clueless to know if that could easily be done or not...

there could be some lib glib type linking issues since the mx kernel is wheezy-backport and I'm sure the antix 14 will need a jessie kernel.

Hmmm, to me that seems odd because Jessie will boot, install and run on the old boxes. But it is very loaded down and slow, so its not reasonably usable...
