Updates most system packages
Jörn Lindau announced today the release of Toorox 02.2009 Linux distribution. Apparently, the latest version of the K Desktop Environment was a success, as more and more distributions are rushing to include it as the default option. Such is the case of Toorox, which features KDE 4.2.0 on top of a 2.6.28-gentoo-r1 Linux kernel and the latest Xorg-Server 1.5.3
Almost all system packages were updated to their most recent versions. The net-config file was added to /usr/sbin and can be edited to configure the available LAN and WLAN devices. Toorox 02.2009 also has added support for writing to NTFS partitions through the implementation of NTFS-3G driver and support for USB optical drives.
Other highlights of Toorox 02.2009:
· "xmodule=" cheatcode;
· IcedTea6 Java JDK;
· The stable version of Firefox was replaced by a Minefield release;
· Toorox Installer extensions;
· OpenOffice 3.0.1 is the default office suite;
· Thunderbird 22.214.171.124 as the default mail client;
· K3b 1.0.5 for burning CDs/DVDs;
· Gnu Image Manipulation Program (GIMP) 2.6.4;
· Wine 1.1.14;
· Audacious 1.5.1;
· Ardour 2.7.1;
· Kino 1.3.1;
· Cinelerra-20090210 for video editing;
· ext2 and ext3 inode size issue was fixed to better interact with preinstalled bootloaders;
· Fixed a bug that prevented using the correct VGA driver;
· The set correct modes in xorg.conf was fixed.
The developer also decided to remove some packages: compiz, kwlan and desktop-effects-overlay are no longer part of the distribution.
Toorox is a Genoo-based Linux Live DVD, thus it can run without touching existing partitions (users still have the option to install it permanently). Toorox 02.2009 can be used for tasks like data backup or secure Internet browsing and also provides Linux newcomers with an intuitive look and feel.
