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
