Release Announcements / New ISO suggestions
« on: November 08, 2018, 05:55:07 PM »
I am hoping to release an updated ISO in December. I am going to try a few things and if it works then I am hoping UEFI will work, if not then the release will be an updated version so updates will not take so long. Please add suggestions to this thread on what to include or take out please.

Release Announcements / SuperGamer V4 Release
« on: July 03, 2018, 09:59:17 PM »
We are about to release a new version that has been done a different way. Putting into car terms: it has the look and feel of the old with a new chassis and engine. The iso is going to be 1.2GB in size. It is complete with Gimp 2.10, Timeshift, VLC 3.02 along with some tweaked cairo dock settings (new animated icons) and a fresh look with new wallpaper. Under a normal build the iso would be 1.8GB in size. I test built several iso's with different compressors for the squashfs. I went ahead and did a trade off and compressed the iso as much as I could to save download time and to not have a user need to install a whole lot of other things to use this, as a result, running live does take longer to get to the desktop. This has no effect once it is installed as it runs like a normal linux install.

Release Announcements / BETA ISO

I will be posting a beta test iso based upon Xubuntu 18.04 beta 2 with the Xubuntu stuff taken out. I have not rethemed it yet and it has the old graphics from my SuperGamer series, there is a plan to do a cleaner graphics. Plymouth is messed up, using text mode now, and I fixed the ldconfig.real file that Ubuntu ships with as well as a few other issues that I'm not going to get into. I know on the second reboot from an install it looses resolution from a VirtualBox install and you have to log back into the account manually. I did not include Gimp or OpenJDK. I do not have Firejail installed for a second layer of protection for Chromium and I do not have the check for pepperflash checking everyday for updates. I also used a 3rd party installer that you select an icon from the desktop to install. The iso is 1.3GB in size at this point and may get bigger for some additional software to make a release. I need this tested so I know what is wrong so I can fix things. So please give Feedback. The iso will be posted on Monday as well as on the website. I will post a link here for a direct zipped folder with md5sum a sha256 file.
