The 4MLinux 20.0 series


This thread is for tracking the development of the 4MLinux 20.0 series.

4MLinux 20.0 Core BETA released.
This is a core system (only a few MB in size) for the 4MLinux 20.0 series. The system includes: the Linux kernel 4.4.17, GNU C Library 2.23, and BusyBox 1.25.0. The 4MLinux 20.0 series uses GNU Compiler Collection 6.1.0 to compile programs designed for the i686 architecture.
This is the first 4MLinux live CD, which can be run on UEFI machines (with both 32-bit and 64-bit firmware !).

4MLinux 20.0 BETA released.

This is the 20th release, so it should be something special. And it is! The 4MLinux live CD can now be run (and installed to a hard disk drive) on the following configurations: BIOS with 32 bit CPU, BIOS with 64 bit CPU, UEFI with 32 bit firmware, and UEFI with 64 bit firmware. All these possibilities are handled by the same Linux kernel and initrd. It is even more interesting because 4MLinux is still a 32 bit system (both user-land and kernel). AFAIK 4MLinux is the only GNU Linux offering this kind of functionality.
The final (stable) version should be released on the 1st of November 2016.

4MLinux 20.1 released.



This is a minor maintenance release in the 4MLinux STABLE channel. The release ships with the Linux kernel 4.4.34, which restores PAE support that "magically" disappeared in 4MLinux 20.0 (sorry :-). Additionally, some popular programs (Double Commander, Dropbox, Firefox, Java RE, Opera, PeaZip, Thunderbird, Wine, Java RE) have been updated, too.

Please note that 4MLinux can be run a semi-rolling distro (no need to install it from scratch again and again). Just execute the "zk update" command in your terminal to update your 4MLinux to its latest stable version (20.1). This is a fully automatic process.
