draklive 0.3

Filed under
MDV

Here comes a new draklive release, it's been a long time since the previous pre-2007.0 release. Developping Mandriva Flash required some new features, but also helped to stabilize my (precious) live creation tool.

There has been a bunch of changes, to sum up:

  • easier to create 32 bits live systems from x86_64 host
  • improve writable loopbacks reliability on USB devices, by doing an early fsck check from initrd
