Version 140131 of LFA (Linux for All), 13.10, 64 bit, with Mate and four other Desktop Environments, is ready!

NEWS about LFA version 140131
1. The LFA ISO is now a ISO-hybrid, which means that it can very easily be transferred (copied) to a USB pen drive. You can then even run LFA from the USB stick and save all your system changes on the stick. I.e. you will enjoy persistence! I’ve found two scripts which make the installation to USB very simple. The scripts are quite ingenious. Unfortunately, it is not me who have created them. I found the scripts on Kanotix website. There was no direct indication of how good the scripts were, but my tests show that they work flawlessly on USB installations of all normal Ubuntu systems. Read my INSTRUCTION how to use the scripts: http://lfa.exton.net/lfa-usb-persistent/
2. Another big improvement is that LFA now can run from RAM. Use Boot alternative 2 (Copy to RAM). It will look like this. When the system has booted up you can remove the disc (DVD) or USB stick. You’ll need at least 2 GB RAM to run LFA that way.
3. LFA is now more stable than ever. All packages have been upgraded to the latest version by 140131. To make it possible to run LFA from RAM I have uninstalled three big packages; LibreOffice, Google Earth and Google Chrome.
4. Kernel 3.12.0-2-exton is replaced by kernel 3.13.0-6-exton.
