PostX 0.3. repository is Online with upgrades

PostX Gnu/Linux 0.3. series repository is Online now.

Note. During apt-get update you will get error saying something like:

Cannot fetch https://techtimejourney.net/postx-current/dists/audax/main/i18n/Translation-en; remote end closed connection.

E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead. The error is because there is no translation files on my repository and thus apt-get complains. The error is non-fatal and repository should work normally – so no worries.

How to apply all changes: Continue reading

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.

Download PostX 0.3. beta from my Sourceforge.net page

If you have comments about the PostX 0.3 beta navigate this Deviantart entry and drop a comment.

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 Continue reading
