Mageia 6 LTM released

Following several delays during the development cycle, the Mageia project has announced the release of Mageia 6. The new version includes the KDE Plasma 5 desktop environment, the DNF package manager is now available alongside urpmi and Mageia 6 includes live test media for the Xfce desktop environment: “The extra time that has gone into this release has allowed for many exciting additions, here are a few of the major additions and key features of Mageia 6: KDE Plasma 5 replaces the previous KDE SC 4 desktop environment. The new package manager DNF is provided as an alternative to urpmi, enabling a great packaging ecosystem: Support for AppStream and thus GNOME Software and Plasma Discover; support for Fedora COPR and openSUSE Build Service to provide third-party packages for Mageia 6 and later; dnfdragora, a new GUI tool for package management inspired from rpmdrake. Brand new icon theme for all Mageia tools, notably the Mageia Control Center. Successful integration of the ARM port (ARMv5 and ARMv7) in the build system, allowing to setup ARM chroots. Installation images are not available yet but will come in the future. GRUB2 as the default bootloader. New Xfce Live images to test Mageia with a lighter weight environment.

OpenSUSE Tumbleweed for x86 32 bit

After the team’s decision does not want to support the x86 32 bit architecture for OpenSUSE Leap, many users today are at the mercy of the waves. The least painful solution concerns the unstable branch of the distribution.  Ladies and gentlemen, you have the possibility to use OpenSUSE tumbleweed even on computers that have the x86 32-bit processors.

Download DVD Installation – i586

Download Network Installation – i586

Download GNOME Live CD -i686

Download KDE Live CD – i686

Download Rescue CD – i686

As a starting base, Tumbleweed is not suitable for professional use, being a rolling release. With some passage we could choose the most coherent way to have a stability similar to leap, transforming the system into a rolling half-release. So to realize the transformation, I am happy to introduce you two really interesting steps to be able to configure the system in a more stable way.
Launching from the terminal under root the command:
# zypper al ´kernel-version´
You will have the possibility to block the specific package you want, in our example a specific version of the kernel, then instead of version we will write the correct version of the kernel.                                                                   From this moment on, any future updates will not change the current version of your kernel. Obviously never forgetting that using tumbleweed we would always have a system that requires so many upgrades.                    If we choose to block the kernel, we can proceed with the recommended package updates for packages already installed in the system by launching from the terminal under root the command:
# zypper inr
In this way we will always be able to update the system with an effective method, keeping the system lean, clean and very stable like a rock solid.
If not, we will not have to launch the two commands previously illustrated but it will be enough to launch the command under root:
# zypper dup
And we will perform the classic upgrade of the distribution, will update all the packages of the system, including the kernel, and in this way we the full potentials of the rolling release.

Happy GNU/Linux  😀

Mageia 5.1 released!

mageia5

03 December 2016 – Donald Stewart has announced the release of Mageia 5.1, an updated build of the distribution current stable branch. This unscheduled version was put together due to delays delivering the upcoming Mageia 6 which is currently in development. From the release announcement: “We are very pleased to announce the release of Mageia 5.1. This release is a respin of the Mageia 5 installation and live ISO images, based on the Mageia 5 repository and incorporating all updates to allow for an up-to-date installation without the need to install almost a year-and-a-half worth of updates. It is therefore recommended for new installations and upgrades from Mageia 4. If you are currently running Mageia 5 then there is no need to install Mageia 5.1 as it is the same as your system, provided that updates have been installed. Mageia 5.1 ships with many updated packages, including LibreOffice 4.4.7, Linux kernel 4.4.32, KDE4 4.14.5, GNOME 3.14.3 and countless other updates.

Slackware Linux 14.2 – It’s released without systemd ;)

slackpenguinlogo

The complete multitasking UNIX-like system.

01/07/2016 – The Slackware project has announced a new stable release of the world’s oldest surviving Linux distribution. The new version, Slackware Linux 14.2, ships with Linux kernel version 4.4, KDE 4.14, Xfce 4.12 and the 64-bit build of Slackware supports booting on UEFI-enabled hardware. “Slackware 14.2 brings many updates and enhancements, among which you’ll find two of the most advanced desktop environments available today: Xfce 4.12.1, a fast and lightweight but visually appealing and easy to use desktop environment, and KDE 4.14.21 (KDE 4.14.3 with kdelibs 4.14.21) a stable release of the 4.14.x series of the award-winning KDE desktop environment. These desktops use eudev, udisks, and udisks2, and many of the specifications from freedesktop.org which allow the system administrator to grant use of various hardware devices according to users’ group membership so that they will be able to use items such as USB flash sticks, USB cameras that appear like USB storage, portable hard drives, CD and DVD media, MP3 players, and more, all without requiring sudo, the mount or umount command.

Additional information can be found in the project’s detailed release announcement.

OpenIndiana Hipster 2016.04 and illumos – OpenSolaris

OpenIndiana

22/04/2016 – The OpenIndiana project, which is a continuation of OpenSolaris, has released a new version of the community-maintained operating system. The new release offers a number of improvements to package management and includes several package updates to such desktop applications as Firefox, Thunderbird and VLC. “New nlipkg zone brand was introduced, which behaves like old ipkg brand (i.e. it doesn’t check child and parent images for consistency). It’s possible to convert ipkg zone to nlipkg one. To do so, install system/zones/brand/nlipkg, change zone’s brand to nlipkg and remove /var/pkg/linked inside zone. Closed sysidtool which could be used to set initial system parameters on first boot and initialize zone’s configuration was replaced with sysding. All other packages from closed admin incorporation were also removed…

Kali Linux Release 2016.1- Rolling Edition

kali-rolling

Kali Linux is a Debian-based distribution that ships with a collection of security and forensics utilities. The distribution recently shifted from issuing fixed releases to a rolling release model. The project has announced the launch of Kali Linux 2016.1, the first version of the distribution’s new rolling release series. “Today marks an important milestone for us with the first public release of our Kali Linux rolling distribution. Kali switched to a rolling release model back when we hit version 2.0 (codename `sana’), however the rolling release was only available via an upgrade from 2.0 to kali-rolling for a select brave group. After five months of testing our rolling distribution (and its supporting infrastructure), we’re confident in its reliability – giving our users the best of all worlds – the stability of Debian, together with the latest versions of the many outstanding penetration testing tools created and shared by the information security community.

Kali Linux 2.0 Now is a Rolling Distribution

kali-linux-2-0-released

The developers of Kali Linux, a forensics and security distribution based on Debian, have released Kali Linux 2.0. One of the big changes in the latest version of Kali is that the distribution has shifted to a rolling release model. “One of the biggest moves we’ve taken to keep Kali 2.0 up-to-date in a global, continuous manner, is transforming Kali into a rolling distribution. What this means is that we are pulling our packages continuously from Debian Testing (after making sure that all packages are installable) — essentially upgrading the Kali core system, while allowing us to take advantage of newer Debian packages as they roll out. This move is where our choice in Debian as a base system really pays off — we get to enjoy the stability of Debian, while still remaining on the cutting edge.” The new release of Kali Linux is available in 32-bit and 64-bit x86 builds as well ARM builds.

How Do I Upgrade to Kali 2.0?

Yes, you can upgrade Kali 1.x to Kali 2.0! To do this, you will need to edit your source.list entries, and run a dist-upgrade as shown below. If you have been using incorrect or extraneous Kali repositories or otherwise manually installed or overwritten Kali packages outside of apt, your upgrade to Kali 2.0 may fail. This includes scripts like lazykali.sh, PTF, manual git clones in incorrect directories, etc. – All of these will clobber existing files on the filesystem and result in a failed upgrade. If this is the case for you, you’re better off reinstalling your OS from scratch.
Otherwise, feel free to:
cat << EOF > /etc/apt/sources.list
deb http://http.kali.org/kali sana main non-free contrib
deb http://security.kali.org/kali-security/ sana/updates main contrib non-free
EOF

apt-get update
apt-get dist-upgrade # get a coffee, or 10.
reboot

Mageia 5 finally is here! Change your perspective..

mageia5

Rémi Verschelde has announced the release of Mageia 5. Mageia is a community distribution which started as a fork of the Mandriva project, but which now operates as an independent distribution. The new release features UEFI support (though not Secure Boot), version 3.19 of the Linux kernel, KDE 4.14 and GNOME 3.14. Cinnamon, MATE, Plasma, LXQt and Xfce desktop are also available. The installation on UEFI machines is now supported out of the box, grub2 (optional and not the default) should now work better out of the box, detect other installed operating systems and add them to grub2 boot menu, Lots of bug fixes in the installer and the control center, including bugs dating back from before the Mageia fork that the work on UEFI support made prominent.                                               Btrfs is now supported as a primary filesystem, though ext4 remains the default – when selecting it for /boot (or / without a separate /boot partition) grub2 will be automatically chosen and configured. We now use the standard Adwaita theme instead of Oxygen-gtk, as the latter is broken with gtk+-3.14.
Packaging:
  • We now use the new standard for weak dependencies.
  • Our packages’ spec files use the new standard for dependencies exclusion (making them more similar to Fedora/Suse/etc. packages).
Installation media, live discs and a network install ISO are offered as download options. More information on the new version of Mageia can be found in the project’s release announcement
