Barry Kauler has announced the release of EasyOS 2.9, an updated build of the project’s minimalist Linux distribution with roots in Puppy Linux. This version has been completely recompiled in OpenEmbedded, a build framework for embedded Linux: “There has been a complete recompile in OpenEmbedded, with some package version upgrades. Also, SeaMonkey has been upgraded to 2.53.9 and the Linux kernel to 5.10.61. Release notes: OpenEmbedded project 20210828 uploaded; statically linked packages with musl in OpenEmbedded; OpenEmbedded Dunfell aarch64 rebuild; align Perl utility updated; 807 packages compiled in OpenEmbedded for EasyOS; OpenEmbedded Dunfell updated rebuild. Note, when I do a complete rebuild in OE, I bump the ‘revision number’, in this case from “r3” to “r4” - this is in the package names, note also, ‘nocona’ is the earliest x86_64 instruction set. Changes that usually go unannounced, I sometimes replace Busybox applets with the full versions, from ‘coreutils’ or ‘util-linux’, when I encounter an error due to the Busybox applet not supporting the required commandline options.” See the release announcement and the release notes for more information.
