Informacja o wydaniu w języku polskim ->

I am pleased to inform that we have started working with SparkyLinux 2.
The effect of our work is the first testing release alpha1 code name “Eris”.

Eris is a planet in the Solar System. It was discovered in January 2005 by a Palomar Observatory-based team led by Mike Brown.

SparkyLinux 2.0 alpha1 “Eris” has been completely built from scratch using Debian testing “Wheezy” packages and is 100% compatible with it. This alpha release will demonstrate the look and feel of the new version of the system.

Live system works quite well with no big problems.
If you have to restart X server and log in back, use:
user: live
password: live

Live installer has been removed from the menu – it needs to be improved.

SparkyLinux 2.0 alpha1 featuring packages such as :
– Linux kernel 3.2.21-3
– e17 0.16.999.70492-2
– Xorg 7.7+1
– alsa-base 1.0.23
– pulseaudio 2.0.-3
– PCManFM 0.9.10-3
– GNOME-MPlayer 1.0.6-1
– MPlayer 2.0~git20120707
– LXmusic 0.4.4+git20100802
– Iceweasel 10.0.6esr-1
– Network-Manager

Remember that the system does not have all applications (similar to SparkyLinux 1.0 Full) but has only several apps. Bigger number of apps take the work with new iso much longer.

Your suggestions and bugs can be report at our forum (in Polish) :,32.0.html

or at Sourceforge ticket’s system (in English):

New ISO image is ready for download from our download page.
