Distribution Release: Finnix 121

  • Finnix is a small, self-contained, bootable Linux CD distribution for system administrators, based on Debian. The latest release migrates from Debian’s Stable branch to Debian Testing and adds several new packages. "Today marks the release of Finnix 121, the LiveCD for system administrators. This release expands upon Finnix 120, and includes a number of fixes, new packages and new features. From the Finnix 121 release notes: Switched back to building against Debian Testing… This release also removes the LILO boot loader, strips away some unnecessary programs, and fixes a number of bugs: “serial-getty consoles are now usable. Non-zero exit codes are now displayed in PS1. Added ‘0’ command for easier access to keyboard configuration. GRUB is now being used for both BIOS and UEFI booting. Removed GRUB initial boot beep. Re-added shared per-user SSH agents. Fixed SSH remote access. Enabled zram swap compression, 50% of physical RAM.” Further information can be found in the distribution’s release announcement and in the release notes.
