GentooxAs promised, here are the new versions of Home and Pro editions. You can read about the Home version Here and the Pro edition Here. As usual, you can grab the downloads from Here.

 New release: New Releases!

GentooxWell, it's been about 21 months, but here they are... the "You're still doing this?!" releases. I don't really know if there's any demand for Gentoox anymore, but I figured I'd put these out there just in case people do still use it.

Home edition has been upgraded to v7.0, Pro to v5.0, Resctoox to v6.0 and Sparkle to v4.0. You can grab the downloads from the Downloads section.

The Readme for Home v7.0 can be found here: Home v7.0
The Readme for Pro v5.0 can be found here: Pro v5.0
The Readme for Resctoox v6.0 can be found here: Resctoox v6.0
The Readme for Sparkle v4.0 can be found here: Sparkle v4.0

The major features are:
  • Fully synchronised software (both with magic and portage as of a few days ago).
  • Ditched RAR file format in favour of tbz2 (file sizes are slightly bigger, but it's free!).
  • Nifty installer progress bar.
  • Updated Busybox in all initrds.
  • Ditched KDE, only XFCE is available now (KDE was way too bloated).
  • Upgraded to latest 2.4 series kernel.
  • Switched Home edition to use -Os due to CPU's tiny cache (Pro still uses -O2 as this will give better number-crunching performance)
  • Removed deprecated packages and replaced with modern equivalents (XF4VNC => X11VNC, GAIM => Pidgin).
  • Loads of other tweaks...

But what about MCE v2.0? Well, rather than delay all other releases, I decided to put everything else out while I rework MCE. The new version of MCE will take quite a while to finish (I haven't even started yet), but the main feature will be bringing it inline with the other distributions whereby installation can take place natively or in a loopback FS.

So for now, enjoy these releases. They may take a while to spread to mirrors, so if your download doesn't work initially, please try again later!

 New release: Gentoox Loader v6.07

GentooxI've released Gentoox Loader v6.07. This is just a maintenance release - it compiles with GCC 4.1.1 and has had the TCP timer tweaked (it seems to accept uploads faster and more reliably now).

Included in the download are the full sources now. This isn't an admission of defeat, I'm just using a different clause in the GPL now (either I have to provide the sources on demand for up to 3 years or I have to provide them with the download - It's easier for me to just provide them with the download now).

Anyway, you can download the package from here.

 New release: Long time, no update!

GentooxSorry! Work is really taking up all of my time. A small update has been made to shallaxs_i2c_stuff (accessible via the xbox-linux CVS and from the Magic developer section). The change allows it to be compiled on more systems (it compiled on my Mac Mini!). It also makes every tool check for both /dev/i2c/0 and /dev/i2c-0 (devfs and non-devfs device nodes).

Since I don't have an Xbox set up at the moment, I'd be grateful if people could try it out and let me know if it works. The static-bins.tbz2 file has been updated with the latest version of the binaries, so you don't even need to compile it to test.

 New release: Gentoox Home v6.1

GentooxHere's the new version of Gentoox Home, as promised! This has the cleaner baselayout and fixes the xterm and hopefully the Gaim problems people have been reporting. Grab a copy from here!

 New release: Gentoox Pro v4.1

GentooxFully sync'ed with magic and fully updated as of today... here is Gentoox Pro v4.1. The main reason for this release was to integrate the latest Gentoo baselayout, which gets rid of the messy reboot (lots of warnings/ errors). There should only be one "[ !! ]" on shutting down now, and thats to do with deactivating swap - its not harmful in the least so just ignore it. The way Gentoox enables swap is rather unorthodox, but it makes managing native, E and F installations easier - unfortunately it causes the shutdown scripts to be unable to disable the swap.

Anyway, grab the download from here. Enjoy!

(Home v6.1 is scheduled for release later this week - I'm still working on it!)

 New release: Gentoox Pro v4.0b

GentooxThis release hopefully fixes the native installation bug whereby checkroot would say that it could not check the filesystem as it was mounted read-write.

You can grab the download from here. Feed back would be appreciated.

I am aware that this bug also exists in Home v6.0a but I dont want to make a new release of Home until I know this bug is solved... so the quicker I get feedback, the better ;)
