2018-01-14 NEWDevelopment Release: Redcore Linux 1801 Beta
Ghiunhan Mamut has announced the availability of a new development version of Redcore Linux, a desktop-oriented distribution based on Gentoo. The new version includes many new packages, new artwork and requires less RAM to install. The installer now supports setting up the distribution with full disk encryption. “It is our pleasure to announce that Redcore Linux 1801 Intercrus beta ISO image is now ready and available for download from the usual place. This cycle we focused mostly on the look’n’feel of the distribution, completely overhauling the artwork. You may notice some rough edges though, as we’re not finished yet. In addition we packed some new features in, and we really hope you will like it. Here is a brief changelog since Redcore Linux 1710: resync with Gentoo portage tree (13.01.2018); Linux kernel LTS 4.14.13 with MuQSS and UKSM enabled by default for maximum desktop performance; Linux kernel LTS 4.9.76 with MuQSS, BFQ and UKSM enabled by default available in the repository; toolchain updated with GCC 6.4.0, Glibc 2.25, Clang 5.0.1; default Python 3 interpreter is now Python 3.5; elogind is now the default session tracker, replacing good old consolekit; the installer will now allow you a true full disk encryption scheme, you can encrypt as many partitions you want; we reduced RAM requirement for installation to 1GB, but we kept the space requirement of 20GB in place; we also tuned some installer parameters, so it will install the system a lot faster than previous releases.” Further details can be found in the project’s release announcement. Download: Redcore.Linux.1801.LXQT.BETA.amd64.iso (2,564MB, SHA256, pkglist).
