PostX Gnu/Linux moves to Fedora

The time has come to leave Debian as a distribution base. My choice is Fedora for the following reasons:

– RPMs are clean and provide a nice structure.
– Latest tools and versions, which is important when coding.
– Systemd that actually works without any weird issues.
– Good package selection and very good driver support.
– Clear standing on free software, which I find to be very good.

PostX 0.4.4. has arrived

PostX Gnu/Linux is built from free software. It uses Debian’s main repository together with Techtimejourney’s repository as software sources. I have added contrib and non-free to the sources list of the iso images – just to make it more easier for the users to install what they might need.

This is the final release with Debian Jessie(now: oldstable). PostX Gnu/Linux uses OpenRC as an init system – this trend will continue.

PostX Gnu/Linux news

PostX Gnu/Linux v. 0.4.4 will arrive within few weeks. It will be still based upon DebIan Jessie. The upgrade will include all the current PostX Gnu/Linux programs. There will also be some new entries. Vlc will return as Veritas Player.  I wrote Vertitas Player to be a Gui for Vlc. Coding has been done with Python. So far, things look good and stable.  The Kernel will also receive an upgrade. I have compiled a 4.9.30 version with a better Wi-Fi and driver support. Currently I am testing the stability of everything. The repositories will likely receive upgrades by the end of this week.

And here is a screenshot of Vertias Player.

Veritas Player is a Gtk3 Gui that will require (at least) vlc-nox package. The design will remain lightweight.
