Dynebolic: forgotten Rasta Tux

Filed under
Linux

Latest version of Dynebolic 2.5.2 DHORUBA was released in December 2007. History wise, this is just peanuts. But in terms of Linux history, that is “ages ago”.

Maybe that is an issue of Unetbootin, maybe that’s a Dynebolic built-in feature, but start menu is confusing. There are 3 options available: "Default", "Dyne: II DHORUBA" and "Linux". Guess what?

Neither "Default" nor "Dyne: 11 DHORUBA" options work. Only last and less intuitive option ("linux") does work.

Anyway, system is booted from USB. It works extremely fast, as you can expect for USB image.

Dynebolic uses XFCE desktop environment with 6 desktops available. Not sure who needs that much, honestly. But that is easy customizable if you need to.

These include the Linux 4.8 kernel packages and an updated graphics stack based on a newer X.Org Server version and Mesa 3D Graphics Library. Read more
