The 4MLinux 33 series.


This thread is for tracking the development of the 4MLinux 33 series.

4MLinux 33.0 Core BETA released.
This is a core system (only about 10 MB in size) for the 4MLinux 33 series. The system includes: the Linux kernel 5.4.17, GNU C Library 2.31, and BusyBox 1.31.1. The 4MLinux 33 series uses GNU Compiler Collection 9.2.0 to compile programs designed for the x86_64 architecture.

Despite its extremely small size, 4MLinux Core supports both BIOS and UEFI boot modes.
