The ExTiX distribution has published a new release. The new version, ExTiX 22.1, features the Deepin desktop environment and can be run from RAM. The project’s release announcement reports: “I’ve released a new version of ExTiX Deepin today (220114). This ExTiX Build is based on Deepin 20.3 released by Deepin Technology 211123. New functions: 1. You can run ExTiX from RAM. Use boot alternative 2 (load to RAM) or Advanced. A wonderful way to run Linux if you have enough RAM. Everything will be super fast. When ExTiX has booted up you can remove the DVD or USB stick. 2. You will have the opportunity to choose language before you enter the Deepin 20.3 Desktop. All main languages are supported. 3. I have replaced Deepin Installer with the Reborn version of Deepin Installer. Works better in every way. 4. I have replaced kernel 5.14.2-exton with kernel 5.16.0-exton. Corresponding the latest available stable kernel from Kernel.org. 5. Spotify and Skype are pre-installed…” Download: extix-22.1-64bit-deepin-20.3-live-3010mb-220114.iso (3,180MB, MD5, pkglist).The Slackware Linux distribution has been slowly gearing up toward a new stable release for a while now, gradually releasing new development snapshots over the past eleven months. The project has announced a new (and final) release candidate, tagged Slackware Linux 15.0 RC3. “Good hello, and welcome to the third and final release candidate for Slackware 15.0. We’re 99% frozen at this point and are mostly looking for regression or other bug reports that might be able to be addressed before this goes stable. Of course, the management here reserves the right to make exceptions… that 5.15.15 kernel version has a nice ring to it. If your requests didn’t make it into this iteration, perhaps we will revisit them for the next -current cycle. Some were just a little too late but will more than likely be needed next time (I’m looking at Didier’s grubconfig), while others are just out of scope for the main tree where I like to abide by YAGNI as much as possible. Anyway, let’s get some testing done and we’ll be there soon. Enjoy!” People wishing to test the upcoming Slackware release can try out the unofficial install media (MD5 slackware64-current-install-dvd.iso (3,489MB), slackware64-current-mini-install.iso (128MB).Patrick d’Emmabuntüs has announced the release of an updated build of Emmabuntüs, a Debian-based desktop Linux distribution designed primarily for old older and reconditioned computers donated to humanitarian organisations. Besides shipping with an updated base system, the new version also adds the Ventoy utility, an open-source tool for creating bootable USB drives from ISO image files: “The Emmabuntüs Collective is happy to announce the release of the Emmabuntüs ‘Debian’ Edition 4 1.01 update (32-bit and 64-bit), based on the Debian 11.2 ‘Bullseye’ distribution and supporting both Xfce and LXQt desktop environments. This new update of our distribution brings the addition of the Ventoy utility as part of our re-use campaign launched in early September 2020 in collaboration with our friends from Debian-Facile and Tugaleres.com in France, as well as Blabla Linux in Belgium, as we have just put online a second version of our refurbishing USB flash drive now based on Ventoy. The advantage of using Ventoy instead of MultiSystem is that it allows the creation of this key on GNU/Linux and Windows.” Read the rest of the release announcement for further details and screenshots.
