Distribution Release: Finnix 123
Distrowatch last edited by
Finnix is a small, self-contained, bootable Linux CD distribution for system administrators, based on Debian. The project’s latest release is Finnix 123 which is based on Debian 11. The new release provides the option of setting OpenSSH credentials at boot time, FTP client packages have been removed, the jove package has been installed, and the command line will now try to suggest available packages the user can install when a command is not found. “Today marks the release of Finnix 123, the LiveCD for system administrators. Expanding on Finnix 122 from six months ago, this release includes a number of fixes, new packages and new features. From the Finnix 123 release notes: Added kernel command line ‘sshd’ and ‘passwd’ options, example: ‘sshd passwd=foo’, ‘sshd passwd=root:foo passwd=finnix:bar’. The machine ID is now, when possible, stable across reboots and being generated from the DMI. This is used for e.g. the DHCP client ID, so multiple reboots should no longer cycle through dynamic IPs on a network. The finnix command now has instructions for how to enable ZFS support. Added a basic command-not-found handler; e.g. trying ftp will point out lftp, and will provide instructions for installing if desired explicitly. Added manpages for Finnix-specific commands (wifi-connect, locale-config, etc). Added packages: jove. Removed packages: ftp, ftp-ssl, zile.” Further information can be found in the project’s release announcement and in the release notes. Download: finnix-123.iso (412MB, torrent, pkglist).
