The developers of the MX Linux distribution have been released today version 19.1. Of course, as with every new version of the distribution, iGuRu.gr releases a custom iso that aims to make your life easier. The new version supports the installation of Linux Kernel 5.4, but will not install it by default.
The ISO that you will find below, along with all the other plugins, also has the Linux Kernel 5.4 which will be installed by default on your system.
A few words about MX Linux
MX Linux, a Linux distribution based on the Debian stable, and as you may know, is one of the distributions we recommend for everyone, experienced or beginner. The distribution came from a collaboration between its communities antiX and MEPIS Linux that has ceased to grow.
It uses Xfce as the default desktop, and is an operating system that combines an elegant and efficient desktop with simple settings, high stability, stable performance and minimal footprint.
In short, it's a fairly light distribution that does not sacrifice quality.
Distribution offers a feature that allows you to create an ISO snapshot.
What is this;
Add your operating system along with all of its settings to an ISO image that can be transferred to a DVD or USB drive to reinstall this system!
Yes, another kind of backup.
For those who did not try the distribution, there is a custom ISO below, from the system I use.
It contains several pre-installed applications but also different DEs (KDE, Xfce) so you don't have to worry about formatting a new installation.
In the additional applications to mention the latest Google Chrome, Opera, Brave, Filezilla, Firefox (64), Pinta, qBittorrent, Nvidia drivers, MX codecs and much more so that the distribution works flawlessly and with many additional applications immediately after installation.
Other key features:
The system is fully updated with the latest packages in the distribution repositories, and ISO can also be used as Live ISO.
Let me mention that the official ISO is at 1GB, while the custom I uploaded to Google Drive reaches 4,0 GiB (4.245.684.224)
ISO and md5 for file verification come as a .zip package.
Live ISO screen:
Contains additional files without personal settings and my accounts have been removed for obvious reasons. So after installation with a few clicks you will be able to have a ready system with pre-installed almost everything you need.
As you can see in the image below, ISO will install Linux Kernel 5.4 by default for better support for new hardware.
