We might have competition, latest PclinuxOs E17

Post by WarraWarra » Thu Apr 02, 2009 16:59

Just bumped into a copy of PcLinuxOs E17 version. It looks nice enough to try out or play with during compile times in Gentoo.

They seem to have a similar desktop color scheme to SL 4 although it feels a bit slow but might just be virtualbox limiting it's performance.
They must have like'd SL 4 appearance or was inspired by it.

Compared the the other stuff out there / Linux distro's this is one of the few that is worth downloading and trying.

It looks good and runs good so for anyone wanting to check it out there is a temporary copy on ibiblio SL under the "other folder" see links below.
Maybe there is some good ideas we can implement in SL who knows.

Just put the iso into the torrent folder IE: start torrent then stop then replace and resume to make sure it is complete + md5 / hash check.
Remember to set the language to US instead of HU and might have to run xorgconfig if no gui runs.

Seems to be a bit difficult to get hold of this version so rsync'd to server. Enjoy.

ISO:
ftp://ftp.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distrib ... h-last.iso
Torrent file:
ftp://ftp.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distrib ... ne.torrent

Is this based on PCLinuxOS 2007 or PCLinuxOS 2009.1? Could you please post the Web link for the page where you found this? Thanks.

PCLinuxOS minime 2008-based on remaster of the Enlightenment E17, use the default graphical desktop KDE instead. Updated! Torrent file!


Stumbled onto this on linux23.com

I found a few things that could need adjusting and the normal control panel missing samba nfs that is not available in their update tree but this is a general bug for a while in most recent versions.
