MX Linux sources

 

Current release: MX-15

Two different ISOs are available (see installation NOTES at bottom of page). As of March 16, 2016, these ISOs have been signed by the Lead Developer which gives users an extra level of security; see the Wiki for details on how to use.

  • MX-15.01_386, containing two 32 bit kernels.
    • PAE, for most recent systems
    • non-PAE, for older systems that don't support PAE
  • MX-15_x64, with a single 64 bit PAE kernel.

The ISOs can be downloaded as a current monthly update or original release.

I. Monthly update/upgrade

These monthly ISOs are created from the original release using MX Snapshot. They include all upgrades since the original release, and thus remove the necessity of downloading a large number of files after creating a new installation. They also enable users to run Live with the most recent version of the programs.

II. Original release

Direct download

Please use the server closest to your location. It may take a while for a new release to upload and propagate to the mirrors completely.

Notes

1. Need installation help? See the Users Manual.

2. If you want to create a USB on a Windows base, we suggest you use Rufus, which supports our bootloader.

3. If on a Linux base, be sure to upgrade unetbootin, syslinux, and extlinux to the most recent versions.

4. If your USB starts but leaves you with an error message: "gfxboot.c32: not a COM32R image" you need to type the word live at the prompt in the next line in order to boot. Reformatting the USB and reinstalling the ISO should remove the error. If not, try a different USB.

5. If the graphic USB creators fail, use one of the command line options below. Let us assume your USB is identified as sde, then copy and paste this line for the 32 bit kernels:
dd bs=4M if=MX-15_386.iso of=/dev/sde && sync
and this one for the 64 bit one:
dd bs=4M if=MX-15_x64.iso of=/dev/sde && sync
Make sure to change the identifier of your USB stick if necessary (e.g., sde to sdb)

6. If you are in doubt about which version you need, please see this page. The non-PAE kernel is exactly the same as the PAE one with one exception: it uses a 586 kernel instead of the 686 one. Note that the non-pae i386 kernel does not support SMP
