The 4MLinux 38 series.


This thread is for tracking the development of the 4MLinux 38 series.

4MLinux 38.0 Core BETA released.
This is a core system (only about 15 MB in size) for the 4MLinux 38 series. The system includes: the Linux kernel 5.10.47, GNU C Library 2.33, and BusyBox 1.33.1. The 4MLinux 38 series uses GNU Compiler Collection 10.3.0 to compile programs designed for the x86_64 architecture.

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