Sparky news 2021/01

The second monthly Sparky project and donate report of 2021:
– Linux kernel updated up to version 5.10.12 & 5.11-rc5
– added to repos: DeepL-Linux Client, Trible bittorrent client, SteamTinkerLaunch

Do you think about a Sparky repo mirror server in your location?
What you need is:
– a fully managed vps with hard/ssd disk >= 20GB
– RAM >= 512MB
– CPU >= 1
– ssh access
– Debian 9/10 (preferred) or Ubuntu 18.04/20.04 or CentOS 7/8 preinstalled
– monthly bandwidth > 500GB
– one IP4 address
– NS record to redirect a new repo subdomain to
Let me know via the contact form if you could provide a VPS to Sparky repo mirror, please. I could set it up for you.

* Thank all of you very much, but unfortunately we did not found exact amount to the server, as well as to life 🙁
We paid for the server taking missing amount from the life part, which in January is less than half. Now we under a minimum line of we need 🙁
We can not count on subsidies from our countru, because we do not run a business – only in you hope.
Please help us to survive the hard times – Linuxinarze, SparkyLinux, ArchiveOS and SoftMania are only our work and source of income – without you we will not make it.

Don’t forget to send a small tip in February too, please.

* Bardzo dziękujemy wszystkim darczyńcom, ale niestety nie udało nam się uzbierać całej kwoty na serwer, jak również na życie 🙁
Opłaciliśmy serwer dopłacając z pieniądzy na życie, których w styczniu uzbieraliśmy niespełna połowę. Teraz jesteśmy na minusie 🙁
Nie możemy liczyć na dotacje od naszego Państwa, bo nie prowadzimy działalności – jedynie w Was nadzieja.
Pomóżcie przetrwać nam ciężkie czasy – Linuxiarze, SparkyLinux, ArchiveOs oraz SoftMania to nasza jedyna praca i źródło utrzymania – bez Was nie damy rady.
