Liquorix Kernel ISO updated to 3.7.0-4
« on: January 27, 2013, 03:16:36 AM »
I have rebuilt the ISO for the Liquorix kernel which stands now at 3.7.0-4

I have made several cosmetic changes and a new grub menu image and all files are up to todays Sid level

I am still struggling to get this ISO/kernel to compress using xz-comp so the file size remains large

I have tested this on several installs and no longer see the issue of the Installer failing to start

Anyone that can download and test this install, please let me know the results

I appreciate all the help!

I had problems downloading it after 2 partials, I used "wget" - that worked perfect.

The first two attempts (with Iceweasel) stopped at 219MB and 240 MB:

Booting LIVE from the USB I see it's using 103 MB RAM!  EXCUSE ME!  AWESOME!!!!  ???

Now for the REALLY GREAT news - it took me just under 10 minutes to install, but I was going slow on purpose.

Installed:
  • lightdm has a "snowey" background - No Nvidia drivers
  • I saw RAM: 102MB - it climbed to: 130MB - very impressive.

  • ran "up", took a few attempts to get past errors at Debian, but on the 3rd it caught.
  • grabbed 16 packages
  • ran smxi and grabbed NVIDIA driver (current)
  • shut down for a few minutes - the recommended action
  • fired 'er up: SAY WHAT! RAM: 99MB that climbed to 115MB as things loaded.

    Very IMPRESSIVE!

    ... and that's what I've been doing this morning.   8)

Nice testing!  I have fixed the dates on all the downloads, all three have been updated now

Thanks for testing and providing the wget information... That is what I will tell people who are having download issues to use from now on

Well done!   ;D
