The 4MLinux 27 series.
 
This thread is for tracking the development of the 4MLinux 27 series.

4MLinux 27.0 Core BETA released.

This is a core system (only about 10 MB in size) for the 4MLinux 27 series. The system includes: the Linux kernel 4.14.64, GNU C Library 2.27, and BusyBox 1.28.4. The 4MLinux 27 series uses GNU Compiler Collection 8.1.0 to compile programs designed for the i686 architecture.

Despite its extremely small size, 4MLinux Core supports all possible boot options: BIOS with 32-bit CPU, BIOS with 64-bit CPU, UEFI with 32-bit firmware, and UEFI with 64-bit firmware.

4MLinux 27.0 STABLE released.
 
The status of the 4MLinux 27.0 series has been changed to STABLE. Edit your documents with LibreOffice 6.1.3.2 and GNOME Office (AbiWord 3.0.2, GIMP 2.10.8, Gnumeric 1.12.43), share your files using DropBox 61.4.95, surf the Internet with Firefox 63.0.3 and Chromium 70.0.3538.67, stay in touch with your friends via Thunderbird 60.3.2 and Skype for Web, enjoy your music collection with Audacious 3.10, watch your favorite videos with VLC 3.0.4 and mpv 0.28.2, play games powered by Mesa 18.1.4 and Wine 3.20. You can also setup the 4MLinux LAMP Server (Linux 4.14.80, Apache 2.4.37, MariaDB 10.3.10, PHP 5.6.38 and PHP 7.2.12). Perl 5.26.2, Python 2.7.15, and Python 3.6.5 are also available.

As always, the new major release has some new features: optional support for AV1 video coding (encoding via FFmpeg and decoding via VLC and mpv), an option to disable PulseAudio with one click (important for those who use 4MLinux to play classic video games such as DOOM), better support for display drivers when 4MLinux is running in KVM (important for those who use a VNC client to manage 4MServer). LazPaint (small yet powerfull raster image editor with layers) and Blender (professional 3D computer graphics software) have been added as downloadable extensions. Additionally, some good news for gamers: more engines available for XBoard (GNU Chess, GNU Shogi, Fairy-Max) as well as more video games to play (Duke3D, Liero, Strifle). A few small terminal-based games have been added, too.

Hey Zbigniew. I'm currently seeding the '4MLinux-27.0-32bit.iso' file via https://linuxtracker.org/index.php?p...ory=0&active=1. Would you consider putting a torrent link on your website? I got and verified the checksums from SourceForcge via your download links.

Hi Zbigniew. Smooth update as usual. Is it possible to have Firefox in 4MLinux? Could you have it installed by default or give a link to download? Or am I best just to download it from the Mozilla website?

zk1234 01-06-2019 01:07 PM

Hi,

Menu > Extensions > NetApps > Mozilla > Firefox

Thanks. I should have looked around more. It's been a while since I fired up my 4MLinux VM and I'm a little rusty with it.

Can I uninstall Chromium?

zk1234 01-06-2019 01:59 PM

Quite easily:
Code:

rm -fr /opt/chromium
This is somewhat brutal but effective :-)


When you install a new web browser in 4MLinux, it will be automatically setup as the default one.
You can also use this: Menu > Settings > DefaultApps > Browser

Hi Zbigniew. Smooth update as usual.

I notice that when I go to 'Firefox' >> 'Help' >> 'About Firefox', then it downloads the newest Firefox that it does not restart. Also it won't launch from the wbar. The only fix I found was to remove FF and reinstall. Why was FF not updated to the latest version with 'zk update'?

4MLinux updates the contents of the /opt directory only for major releases (26.0, 27.0, 28.0, ...)

It looks that the newest Firefox is not fully compatible with the 4MLinux 27 series. You must wait till the next major 4MLinux release, which will fix that (at least I hope so :-). In the meantime you should disable automatic updates of Firefox:

Unfortunately the FF issue persists. I ran the code from https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...nux-4175647554. I installed Chromium and it works fine but I much prefer FF. As it stands, I cannot launch FF.

1) Restore the default version:
Code:

4mlinuX getfirefox
2) Now run the code:
