Last Updated on: 20th September 2023, 12:27 pm


New development iso images of Sparky 4.6-dev20170307 MinimalGUI are ready for testing.

– all packages updated from Debian (frozen, but still testing) Stretch repositories as of March 07, 2017;
– Calamares 3.1;
– fixed installation on UEFI machines issue; it installs the efi-grub debs offline (no internet connection needed), in the same way as the Advanced and the present Live Installers do;
– fixed small lightdm related issue, which did not list a target user in the login window;
– cleanup, removed some unnecessary packages, so the iso images are a little smaller then before.

Note: installation on an ecrypted device/partition is not configured properly yet.

The development iso images can be downloaded from the download/development page.

Test it and report on ours forums whatever you find, please.

But cannot find a desent review of this product. As Linux Coord for my Computer Club, it makes it hard to ‘sell’ this great product to some of my ‘mixed’ Seciors where to go next in this IT World.
