Testing PCLinuxOS KDE 2011.6

Filed under
PCLOS

When the first releases of PCLinuxOS 2010.7 were made last fall, the word was that there would be a new "rollup" release every three months. It looked like they might stick to that commitment when that release was followed by 2010.10 and 2010.12 (even a bit ahead of schedule). But things happen, there were some disturbances in the distribution chain, and we missed out on one release. But now they are back on track with this new release, and from what I see in the download directory there is probably more to come in the near future.

Installing this release is essentially the same as with previous releases. Check the PCLinuxOS Web Page for the release announcement, links to download mirrors and torrent sources, and installation tips. As with the previous releases, it is compatible with unetbootin, so it is easy to convert the ISO distribution to a bootable USB stick. The installer itself has been improved a bit since the last release, so it is a little nicer looking in general and it works better on netbooks with limited resolution. The installation process is quite fast. When you reboot the installed system, this is what you get:
