How is changing BIOS settings going to change what Debian gets installed???


It wont, I was referring to the fact that he said he installed the latest link on the sourceforge site (MX Linux 21.2), which would be based on Debian 11. So it kind of shoots the Subject Topic's install guide in the foot from the beginning is all I meant.

Not nice.
Wasn't my intent. I apologize if that is how it came across :-/

I get that (starting on 19.4) , which is the reason I brought it up. On both of my machines, windows and linux it downloads 21.2 no 19.4 even though the file says as much. 
For me this is drinking from the fire hose. I know enough to try, which is not fun at times.

This whole dialect/architecture is very tough to troubleshoot for rookies and I am giving it my all but there is LOTS of struggle. Even following this well thought out and put together guide I am at a less than 50% success rate for each command.

I blew off the Mesa Flash issue (I don't even have a Mesa card to use yet) and moved on to the linuxcnc part which fails again for various reasons.

Where I am currentyl...
GPG error: buildbot.linuxcnc.org buster InRelease: The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY EF1B07FEE0EE663EThe repository 'buildbot.linuxcnc.org buster InRelease' is not signed.

And in the middle somewhere from installing the OS to MX from blank the wifi driver that MX provided did not work correctly, some sites worked but others did not, Linuxcnc.org was one of the "did not".I used a non-free firmware list I found when installing debian 11 that repaired the wifi. It was pretty handy actually.

Last one for the night.
Mesaflash fails here because "pkg-config can't find libmd"

Are you sure you're following my instructions, and not a set from somewhere else?

For the key issue, this is from my install guide (and I 2x checked it works over here):
sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-key EF1B07FEE0EE663E

For the mesa flash issue, looks like they changed a dependency and I missed it.  I am considering just adding a link to their instructions so they stay current, but in the meantime you just need to install the libmd-dev package.  So:
sudo apt install libmd-dev

As for the ISO download, I'm not sure what to say there.  It downloads the correct one over here.  Maybe try going to this link: sourceforge.net/projects/mx-linux/files/Old/  Then click the MX-19.4 folder, then click MX-19.4_x64.iso (it's about 16 lines down).

I am using the guide in the locked thread. I did some research to try and resolve they problem which is why the server is not the same, just suggestions I found on the forum.

I will attempt to download the 19.4 file specifically from your link.

It's all part of the process, these things seem to be so fluid creating a static guide is substantial chore. I do appreciate the work put into it and helping me learn the process.

Well 19.4 sure makes a difference from a following this guide point of view. Basically ZERO issues when starting from the correct OS version.
I am sure there are more hurdles to come but I have QtPlasmac up and running.

After a successful install using this guide. What would be the next steps?

I am trying to get connected to my 7i96S but while I can ping it I don't seem to be able to find it with Mesaflash.

I am not sure where I am at in the process though, if it should work now or do I need to complete other steps.

I can make a new thread but I wanted to exhaust my options first.

Since it’s such a new card, and seems to be outside the scope of the install doc, I’d recommend a new post in the Driver Boards section.  You’ll likely get more attention there and it will probably help someone else out as well.

Hello,

Any tips how can I force cpu governor to "performance" permanently? At the moment after reboot, the system reverts back to "powersave". As I dont know where this is loaded at boot, I would rather not just try a "random" file after googling.
