    Is this the right forum for AntiX?


    I tried AntiX on an old laptop, and it was one of only 4 that worked with the quirky hardware. I liked it well enough to get rid of the others and install it. Since Anti is based on Mepis, would this be the right forum for AntiX questions if I run into problems?

    Yup. And FYI, if you're googling for solutions to anything you run into, Mepis/Antix are basically Debian and pretty much anything that applies to Debian should apply to them as well.

    For AntiX 8.2 use Debian Lenny.

    For AntiX 8.5 use Debian Squeeze.

    No disrespect intended for this forum or Boston man or the man from Judge Roy Bean County (who seems to be posting in many fora)
