NEWS 190912 about AndEX Pie 9.0 with GAPPS
A new build of AndEX Pie is ready. It has GAPPS (Google Play Store etc), Aurora Store, F-Droid, Netflix and many other apps pre-installed. My new build of Android x86_64 – andex_x86_64-pie-9.0-gapps-netflix-1600mb-190912.iso can be installed to hard drive or on a USB stick. You can also run the system live.

[SOLVED] - it turns out that the driver I thought I needed to use, it8718, was only one of the drivers detected by sensors-detect (or detect-sensors, whatever), other one I've missed was actually called just "coretemp".

"Rofi" seems to be the best alt+f2 / fbrun replacement for Openbox

Not to be confused with ROFL.
Fbrun is quite nice, does what is supposed to, but the history corruption is quite disappointing.
Gmrun looks nice, but is terribly limited, you can't launch a command with any parameter, "foobarizer /path/to/file --foo --bar" becomes just "foobarizer." Yet it seems somewhat noticeably slower than FBrun.

A word on partitioning and permissions (for newbies)

Posted 09-06-2019 at 07:53 AM by zeebra

Unless you are completely new to GNU/Linux and/or have no idea what you are doing, ALWAYS use 1. manual partition setup when installing a distro! If you don't you have absolutely no control over what happens, you learn nothing, you (probably) end up with a bad setup and you can't plan for persistence. Besides that, auto-partitioning will usually whipe your whole disk!

There are other setups as well across various distroes, don't use these! MANUAL PARTITIONING IS WHAT YOU WANT. It's...
