DSL 2.1r2 Report

DSL 2.1rc2 was released on the 13th and with it comes a few more enhancements, but still no wireless for srlinuxx. Sad

There didn't seem to be too many changes afoot this release other than a revamped torsmo look. Should I say a much improved torsmo look? This includes the addition of a laptop/noteboot battery monitor and the listing of your ip addy... provided of course you actually get an ip addy.

My wireless netcard was still inoperable here. I was most disappointed. However using the pcmcia tool in the dsl panel allowed easy switching to a wired card that is supported quite well.

In the menu I saw this online dictionary app that I'd never noticed before. That was fairly neato, as well as the ms word document converter and the graphical search tool.

Sorry so short, but that's about it.

The announcement reads:

DSL 2.1 Release Candidate 2 is now available in the download area here

Change log for RC2
1. Updated Calendar - supports year and full page printing Calendar
2. Improved Torsmo display
3. Torsmo now displays IP
4. Fixed boot error when trying to boot dsl embedded via cdrom
5. Fixed Mountpoint function to correctly handle multiple mounts of the same device
6. Fixed umounting UCI type extensions while running Fluxbox.

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.
