Title: VSIDO Debian ISO updated 2013-03-11 14:14 CST
Post by: VastOne on March 11, 2013, 08:33:39 PM
The ISO was updated, built, installed, tested and uploaded with no issues this afternoon.  The primary changes were:

1 - Updated the kernel to the latest Debian Stable kernel of 3.8.2

If you want to update to this kernel just do the following

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get -t experimental install linux-headers-3.8-trunk-all-amd64

sudo apt-get -t experimental install linux-image-3.8-trunk-amd64

then

Code: [Select]
sudo update-grub
In my tests the kernel was running in a lot less ram and cpu usage

When VSIDO ISO came out I was thinking - great the last "install" no more 6 month install cycles.  I was more than 8) with that idea.

Little did I know your were going to pop out ISO faster than Chevy pops out cars from the assembly line.  :D  :D

I just finished downloading

2013-03-10 <<-- about 30 minutes ago.

I don't even know which version I'm currently running.  I just "up" it twice a day and check for/grab the latest liquorix kernel once a week or so.

I don't have FluxBox in my daily version yet, just on the "back 40".  No rush, I'm an OB guy.

What's a guy to do.....  ???  ???  ???

Grabbing 2013-03-11 now .... that's what!

For anyone happy as clams with their installs, there is no need to download and start over...

I have been posting what the changes are and providing either scripts or the process to update manually

Yes, I realize that, but you know me - I gotta test on the back 40.   ;)

VSIDO - more than most other distros; really does work OOTB!
So many others say it but VSIDO lives up to it!

I gotta play/test and see if "maybe" something is broken or if I can break something.

However, it's just too solid.  You realize you're going to get a rep for all this don't you.

The Greatest Little Distro on the Blue Marble!

Besides, someday I'll have to install a new version to my working system to play with FB properly.


To continue:
Less ram & cpu than the liquor{hick}x ?

it is still the old kernel number that shows when downloading the latest iso, am giving it a live spin just for the "fun" of it, wanted to see if the newer kernel should/could give me some problem, so far so good:)
