Ladies and Gents!
Glad to announce the update of unofficial Enlightenment LiveCD based on OpenSUSE-11.0.
Please visit the download page to see the details and try the mirror provided by Yandex.ru – a leading Russian internet and technology company. We’ve got this mirror in September’08 because our server was loaded ‘over the top’. Please, read the Welcome.pdf before you pop the disk into the PC/Qemu/etc.
Here’s some download statistics data excluding the mirror and excluding the torrents:
|Month||Monthly Totals KBytes||Average shipped Qty of images|
The data is slightly rounded/diminished, but tiny 50k from a single server is the result no one expected. Thank you very much!
All components of this LiveCD are available for the ordinary openSUSE Users. Some of our improvements/modifications are outlined in the ‘Welcome.pdf’. We’re cooking now the simple package to make the Enlightenment LiveCD with a ‘single click’. Anyone could install that package, read instructions, add the drivers/packages/components we had missed and “pull the trigger”. It means that you can add there the beloved NVIDIA drivers, remove OpenOffice, add more themes, wallpapers, games etc.
The brief changelog comparing to the old ‘release’:
- create_xconf service is modified and used instead of ‘traditional’ xdm to launch the GUI. If you decide to install the system to the disk – create_xconf will also help you there. A simple check of your video card/cards is added and ‘Sax2’ will be started on boot if your saved hardware configuration is altered (should we check the Monitor+Video Card configuration? should we modify the xdm service for better compatibility/integration?).
- fonts are displayed with 96.0 ‘standard’ DPI despite on selected/chosen screen resolutions. It’s easy to change this value if 66.0 DPI or 130.0 DPI is your favorite Xft setup but… 96.0 is the value which is used mostly .
- Enlightenment OBS repositories for openSUSE 10.2-11.0/Factory are updated to the current state. E-svn snapshot date is 20080924.
- custom kernel from Jan Engelhardt repository replaced the default one. Thanks!
- OpenOffice suite now uses the default/selected gtk-2.0 theme to display interface elements.
- Tk package is removed and aria2c lost the tk gui. BitTorrent client is added. Anyway aria2c is best when used in CLI.
- English thesaurus is removed from OpenOffice suite along with OpenOffice-Base. Sorry for the inconvenience caused.
- 23Oz theme for E17 and ETK is updated. Glowing scrollbars and sliders – useless feature but looks nice.
- sources of ATI fglrx drivers (without precompiled kernel module) are added, instruction for those who is not happy with radeon/ati opensource drivers are on the page 4 of Welcome.pdf
- several .desktop files are improved (thanks to the Ariszló)
- option to select the default login manager on first boot (‘Entrance‘ or ‘gdm‘) is added (though only ‘entrance’ works here).
- a lot of components are added to provide better support of various equipment ‘out-from-the-box’ (like webcams, eeepc and so on)
- other miscellaneous fixes and updates…
We will be glad to receive your feedback.
