MX Linux 21.1
MX Linux team announced the first point release of MX Linux 21 series, i.e. MX Linux 21.1, today with essential updates and changes to this lightweight Linux operating system. Coming after the MX Linux 21 release in October 2021, this version of MX Linux 21.1 is rebased with Debian 11.3 Bullseye.
In addition to that, this release reinstated the disk-manager application in the official ISO images and added
mx-samba-config for those who want to configure Samba and CIFS file share.
Moreover, the Linux Kernel 5.16 is now available in the Advanced Hardware Support ISO image containing the Xfce desktop environment.
“If you are already running MX-21, there is no need to reinstall. Packages are all available thru the regular update channel.” said the team.
So, if you want to install this version in a new system, we recommend you download the proper ISO images (32-bit and 64-bit) for your use case from the below link, including both Xfce and KDE Plasma variants.
If you are already using MX Linux 21.0 series, fire up a terminal and run the below commands to upgrade your system, if not done already.
