PostX 0.3. beta1 is finally here (Release notes and must read information)

After very long and careful fine-tuning I am proud to release PostX 0.3 first beta.

Some general questions and answers about the beta:

Q: Is it unstable to use?

A: It should not be. However, there might be some minor errors since 0.3. marks a major transition in PostX Gnu/Linux.

Q: Are the packages compatible with Debian Jessie?

A: Yes. Do not upgrade the base-files package though and do not install the apt-configs package if using Debian. The packages in question might break things or alter them in a ways you may not desire.

Q: How final is this the beta version?

A: General outlines are in place. The next beta will be more about fine-tuning things further and upgrading some old dusty things and building more optimized packages. Since the 0.3. beta is a moving target I will release upgrades via techtimejourney’s software channel and build a meta package, which pulls in all the latest things when they appear.

Q: Does the beta fit to a cd?

A: The iso size is about 764 megabytes. The release got bigger due the appearance of Libreoffice and likes. You should get a dvd or an usb stick. Burn image to usb stick like this:

sudo dd bs=4M if=Audax-0.2.iso of=/dev/sdb && sync

The beta user name is: audax and the password is live

Extra note (16th of August): to installthe beta to hd open a terminal client and type sudo live-installer during the live-mode. To switch between opened windows within openbox press ALT + TAB Read more →

PostX 0.3 beta status and update

PostX 0.3 beta’s original release date was supposed to be today. Unfortunately, I have not been able to finalize things due to an injury, which took place during Monday. Due to this unfortunate event I have been quite off from computer during the last few days. Rest assured PostX 0.3 is soon complete. Since I have been able to pick up some slack now I am quite sure that the beta will arrive within seven days. The current target date is around 5th of August -or even sooner if everything goes really well.

Here are the features, which will appear on PostX 0.3. beta Read more →

PostX 0.3 first beta release date and timetable

As I am currently working towards making the next PostX release, which will have some extensive changes, I am pleased to announce that the first beta release will become available on Monday 31st of August. Before the given date I will try to push all the remaining things, which came with the previous PostX version, to my website for a larger public. I will also do some updates to the PostX 0.2.5 base, which will include at least:

A more recent kernel, a more recent audax-programs package and possibly some artwork tune-ups. The plan is to do a more robust kernel, which will be included to both PostX 0.2.5 and 0.3 versions. The audax-programs package will also continue be as identical as possible between the releases. Also, the plan is to continue maintaining a more active approach to kernel building once PostX 0.3. is released. I will try to find time during the next weekend to build a new kernel, which I will then push to both current and beta repositories of PostX

The schedule looks like this now. Read more →
