The 4MLinux 35 series.


This thread is for tracking the development of the 4MLinux 35 series.

4MLinux 35.0 Core BETA released.
This is a core system (only about 10 MB in size) for the 4MLinux 35 series. The system includes: the Linux kernel 5.4.61, GNU C Library 2.32, and BusyBox 1.31.1. The 4MLinux 35 series uses GNU Compiler Collection 10.2.0 to compile programs designed for the x86_64 architecture.

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

Question

Is Firefox no longer available (the default browser is now NetSurf)? Also - where is Notepadd++ (I read that it was supposed to be there by default for v35)? Thank you. :-)

Edit: I got FF (also Pale Moon) & N++ via the Extensions section of the menu. You're done a sterling job with your distro. Kudos!

Hi,

After installing 4MLinux 35.0:
1. Install GRUB (Menu>Maintenance>MiscTools>GNU GRUB).
2. Reboot
After performing these two steps you should have no problem with the "zk update" command.

Best regards,
zk1234

Thank you for your reply!

I have tried several installations, including legacy installs.
The installation and update to 35.1 (and grub) give me no problems but,
when it boots up the script holds for a while at:

Clocksource: switched to clocksource tsc
ata: softreset failed (1st fis failed)

Than the script goes on and stops at

end kernel panic-not syncing
vfs:unable to mount root fs on unknown-block (0,0) ]---

Installing 4mlinux has allways been easy for me, but now I am in the dark.

Hi,

In your first post: you were able to install 35.0 and upgrade to 35.1. The 35.1 system boots to JWM, but it hangs.
In your second post: unable to boot, kernel panic.

These are two totally different scenarios. Which of them is correct? If the second one, then try to set Secure Boot to disabled in your BIOS. If this does not help, then additionally set Legacy Support to enabled. You should find these two options in the advanced BIOS settings.
