Ark Linux H2O - 2007.1

Filed under
Linux

Ark Linux is a distribution whose goal is ease of installation and use for users without prior Linux (or computer) experience while being robust enough to satisfy the needs of advanced users. This distribution is mainly aimed towards desktop use. Two versions are available for download, Ark Linux Home which is a cd for a complete linux desktop and Ark Linux Live, a bootable CD that will launch Ark Linux without the need to install it. Ark also gives us the possibility of installing it from a USB memory stick, but for this review we will use the normal CD installation we just downloaded. If you are interested in installing Ark from a USB stick you can find the instructions at this address.

System requirements:

The minimum system requirements for Ark Linux are:

i586 class processor or superior
at least 64 MB RAM
2.5 GB of free hard disk space.

As we said, these are minimum requirements, at least an i686 class processor with 128 MB RAM are recommended.

Distro Development: Rescatux and Bodhi

  • Rescatux 0.40 beta 9 released
    Many code in the grub side and in the windows registry side has been rewritten so that these new features could be rewritten. As a consequence it will be easier to maintain Rescapp. Finally the chntpw based options which modify the Windows registry now perform a backup of the Windows registry files in the unlikely case you want to undo some of the changes that Rescapp performs. I guess that in the future there will be a feature to be able to restore such backups from Rescapp itself, but, let’s focus on releasing an stable release. It’s been a while since the last one. UEFI feedback is still welcome. Specially if the Debian installation disks work for you but not the Rescatux ones.
  • Bodhi 4.0.0 Updates and July Donation Totals
    Late last month I posted a first alpha look at Bodhi 4.0.0. Work since then has been coming along slowly due to a few unpredictable issues and my own work schedule outside of Bodhi being hectic over the summer. Bodhi 4.0.0 will be happening, but likely not with a stable release until September. I am traveling again this weekend, but am hoping to get out a full alpha release with 32bit and non-PAE discs next week.
