antiX 17 Linux Operating System Gets New Alpha Build, Now Uses Kernel 4.9.6

antiX 17 Linux Alpha 2 is here a little over two weeks since the release of the first Alpha build, and it looks like it rebases the kernel packages on Linux 4.9.6, which has been customized the development team with extra drivers, etc. The Linux kernel headers are included as well, but please note that this is not a Linux-libre kernel. Also included in the second Alpha images of antiX 17 Linux are a bunch of tools that some of you might find useful. For example, there’s a command-line remastering utility for creating your own antiX Live system, a command-line installer, as well as live-usb-maker tool for creating Live USB sticks with antiX or other distros.
