Texstar wrote the other day, "I'm starting an upload of PCLinuxOS 0.92 Test 04 iso in a few minutes and it should be available tomorrow. If there are no big glaring showstoppers then I'm going to simply rename the iso to final over the weekend and add the Nvidia and ATI isos as well.

Thanks to everyone who helped so much getting this release prepared and ready to go."

One tester states, "It is nice to be in a position when the only "bug reports" are cosmetics!"

Another writes, "Tested livecd on both boxes, everything A-OK!

Tested install, first configured my printer and changed a few small configurations. Then added user, changed root password, installed lilo to installs hd, turned on logging. Booted up perfectly with all changes intact, printer working, etc.

Seems like a winner on this end, thanks everyone!"

Although a few little bugs reared up, fixes came fast and furious. According to the following, another upload will probably take place.

Found on the mailing list:

* Fix userdrake to automatically add new user to audio and video group

* Really fix usb sound device from getting first sound device on livecd. Works on hd install without issue.

* Fix redo-lilo script to actually re-write lilo from livecd.

Schedule 0.92 beta release final for Monday Nov 21st.

There's still time to test!

Webconverger 26 Is a Secure Kiosk OS That Doesn't Store Any Data

Webconverger is a distribution designed and developed with a single goal in mind, namely to provide the best Kiosk experience possible. This means that people will be able to use that OS as a regular system, although its functionality will be limited and it will be impossible to install any other apps. This is a very helpful solution if this is a public PC, like in a library or a cafe, and it preserves the quality of the installation for a very long time. Because users can't interact with it on a deeper level, the operating system will remain stable and it will be pretty much the same like in the first day that it was used. Read more
