The 4MLinux 39 series.


This thread is for tracking the development of the 4MLinux 39 series.

4MLinux 39.0 Core BETA released.
This is a core system (only about 15 MB in size) for the 4MLinux 39 series. The system includes: the Linux kernel 5.10.79, GNU C Library 2.34, and BusyBox 1.33.2. The 4MLinux 38 series uses GNU Compiler Collection 11.2.0 to compile programs designed for the x86_64 architecture.

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

Hi,

I was able to upgrade from 34 to 39 using the "zk update" command on my PC (it uses BIOS, not UEFI).
