PostX 0.5 has now been released. The size of the iso image is about 634 megabytes. This release is also SystemD free and uses SysVinit. Desktop is Openbox and display manager is Slim. This release is also using Debian´s kernel rather than providing its own.

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.
– Dependencies are managed better and more robustly in the RPM world. Continue reading
In the upcoming week I will make some updates to PostX Gnu/Linux repositories. Power-Manager will upgrade to QT5 and it will contain some Openbox integration in it. Likewise, PostX-Calendar will upgrade to QT5. I will also build new Linux kernels, headers and source packages for both i386 and amd64. All this should be done before the late Friday. The actual upgrade schedule might be a lot faster but Friday is the deadline. Continue reading
PostX Gnu/Linux 0.4 has arrived as 32-bit and 64-bit releases. If you are using the older PostX 0.3 release I will recommend that you do a fresh install to 0.4. Changes made are quite considerable when it comes to optimizations and general stability. 32 bit image size is about:559 megabytes and 64 bit size is about: 545 megabytes.
This is also a transitional release, which means that in most scenarious the 0.4 release should survive migration to Debian Testing or even to Debian Sid base. PostX 0.4 repository along with sources and few extra programs will be uploaded within a few days. 0.4 repository will replace the older 0.3 repository. Continue reading
