Bluewhite64 12.1 is Released


I am pleased to announce the availability of the Bluewhite64 Linux 12.1!

Among the many program updates and distribution enhancements, you'll find better support for RAID, LVM, and cryptsetup; a network capable (FTP and HTTP, not only NFS) installer; two of the most advanced desktop environments available today: KDE 3.5.9, the latest version of the award-winning K Desktop Environment, and Xfce 4.4.2, a fast and lightweight but visually appealing and easy to use desktop environment; SMP Linux Kernel 2.6.24.5 and 2.6.25.1 (for testing) with advanced features and performance; Fuse 2.7.3 and ntfs-3g 1.2310 read/write NTFS driver; SCIM 1.4.7 (Smart Common Input Method); an updated IA32 Emulation (run 32-bit programs) in the EXTRA software series, and may more improved and upgraded packages. Read the Official Announcement for more details.

Please consider purchasing the Bluewhite64 Linux 12.1 DVD directly from the following stores: store.bin-sh.ro (RO) and on-disk.com (USA) and you'll be helping to support the continued development of Bluewhite64 Linux!

The Bluewhite64 Linux 12.1 CDs and DVD ISO can be downloaded from the primary mirror located in Austria, or any other additional mirror sites near you. Also, the ISOs are available for download via BitTorrent.

Special thanks to Patrick J. Volkerding, for creating and keeping alive Slackware Linux, to Lucian for providing xServers mirror, to Peter Polonkai for the deval.hu mirrors, to the people from the Bluewhite64 Linux forum and all others who are using Bluewhite64 Linux! Thank You and I hope that you will enjoy this new release!

Thank you fot this great work, I'm a user of Slackware Linux and I've tested bluewhite64 12.1. It's a really great Slackware port for AMD64, it looks like a real Slackware and that's fantastic.

How can I support bluewhite64?

Best Regards
Christian

OK, buying a bluewhite64 DVD can be a way, bur it can take time, because I've bought a Slackware 12.1 CD Set some days ago to support Slackware and I haven't got much money.
But I'm going to install a bluewhite64-current, so I'll make beta tests for bluewhite.

BTW: I've read, that you included ALICE in your Live DVD, have you contact to Darkstarlinux? I'm a developer of easys GNU/Linux and we are working together with "Darth Vader" from the Darkstar-Team. We included ALICE in our distribution, too.
I'm going to port easys to the AMD64 architecture; I'll use bluewhite as a basis, but I think, its bad to get things from bluewhite64 without giving something back. So, I like to help you with tests of bluewhite64 or building packages (but not to much, because I've got a slow internet connection). If you need help of this type, feel free to ask me. I can be your partner, not only a user, who uses your work for his project.

Best Regards
Christian

"Darth Vader" wrote the ALICE and YALI for BW64EL, so, I'm in contact with him every day .

Yes, the testing will be a great help!

BW64 is a great distro.
Slack core in 64bit flavor, w00t \o/

I installed Slackware, Debian, Ubuntu, SuSE, Red Hat, etc... Only Slack answered my needs. But still missing a detail, the architecture.

Now I can enjoy a 64-bit operating system stable, simple and fast. What more could I ask?

Tanks for the hard work.
