easys GNU/Linux 4.1 (Codename: The Landing) released

Filed under
Slack

The included QT based partitioning program 'Disk Manager' can independently be launched as a single-task application from the installation medium and offers a comparable functional range, as for instance, the commercialized software Partition Magic or the OpenSource application gParted.

Meta-Packages can now be installed with help of the graphical 'PkgWizard' within a few clicks. Together with the full featured 'PkgManager', easys GNU/Linux can be extended in a modular manner. Soon Meta-Packages for applications like OpenOffice or programs like Amarok will be available on the easys GNU/Linux Download sites.

Another innovation is the switch to the 2.6 (2.6.24.3) kernel series and the omission of the 2.4 kernel support. X DRI (Direct Rendering Interface) and a modular X.org version provide hardware accelerated 3D display.

easys GNU/Linux 4.1 is 100 % compatibel with Slackware 12.1(rc3), because no modifications of the original package sources have been done. Upgrades to Slackware 'current' are possible when ever you want.

The easys community and forum is friendly and open-minded. Every user is highly appreciated and cordially welcomed! The development is as transparent and open as possible, in order to give users the opportunity to have a look inside and to take part in the whole of the process. Everbody who takes interest in the development of easys or who wants to contribute something, is cordially invited to join us.

ASF publishes long-overdue Code Of Conduct

We pride ourselves at The Apache Software Foundation on our principles of "community over code" and "don't be a jerk". But, alas, we've been slow to codify some of these things in public. Part of this, I'm sure, is that it’s easy to think we all just know how we're supposed to treat people, and so you shouldn't have to say, right? Read more
