The 4MLinux 29 series.
 
This thread is for tracking the development of the 4MLinux 29 series.

4MLinux 29.0 Core BETA released.

This is a core system (only about 10 MB in size) for the 4MLinux 29 series. The system includes: the Linux kernel 4.19.19, GNU C Library 2.28, and BusyBox 1.30.1. The 4MLinux 29 series uses GNU Compiler Collection 8.2.0 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.

how do I Start the desktop for that flavor
I boot 4MLinux from and .iso into VM but after bootup its says changing password for root, new password in command session but no desktop session started I'm using v29 or release 29. I'm trying to bootup to research if I can use it's netfilter or firewall as virtual firewall for multiple IP prefix while running dhcp with static lease for some MACs within the virtual environment.

LiveCD (or LiveUSB) should start a Xorg/JWM session automatically (no action required from your side).
Please give us a more detailed description of your problem.

oops my bad, I didn't notice core system involves only console or terminal version and not Desktop mode :) Still i'm wondering if 10 OS can have Desktop mode

I believe it can (small Linux kernel with minimal functionality, Xvesa display server, ...). However, even if it works, this would be a proof of concept rather than a real operating system.

4MLinux is just getting better and better. :-)

Hey Zbigniew. Quick question. Why does 4MLinux run as root user by default? I know Puppy Linux does the same (can't think of any other distro that does this). But isn't this potentially dangerous instead of having a user drop to a sudo prompt like in Debian/Ubuntu?

Mainly because it's based on BusyBox.
