MEPIS 7.0 Beta4: It's all Coming Together

Filed under
Linux

The 4th Beta of SimplyMEPIS 7.0 has been released by Warren Woodford. The isos and beta3-beta4 iso deltas for 32 and 64 bit processors are available from the testing directory at the MEPIS subscriber site and public mirrors.

The kernel in Beta4 is version 2.6.22.6 which contains more patches from the Kernel Development Team. The MEPIS kernel was tweaked to eliminate some boot time warning messages. The fglrx ATI video driver was updated to eliminate an annoying AMD watermark bug.

Wireless-tools and wpasupplicant were updated. Configurations were adjusted to improve k3b, wireless networking, keyboard and language support, video defaults and boot options.

In the MEPIS pools gnome-games, sylpheed-claws, evolution, and gtk-qt-engine were updated in response to user requests. The MEPIS OSX Assistant was recompiled and tested for OSX Leopard and to use the 0.10 version of rEFIt.

Linux 4.2 is out

So judging by how little happened this week, it wouldn't have been a mistake to release 4.2 last week after all, but hey, there's certainly a few fixes here, and it's not like delaying 4.2 for a week should have caused any problems either. So here it is, and the merge window for 4.3 is now open. I already have a few pending early pull requests, but as usual I'll start processing them tomorrow and give the release some time to actually sit. The shortlog from rc8 is tiny, and appended. The patch is pretty tiny too. Go get it, Linus Read more
