Quirky 7.1.93 (7.2beta)

October 01, 2015 — BarryK
THIS RELEASE HAS BEEN WITHDRAWN
I AM WORKING ON ANOTHER, PLEASE WATCH THIS BLOG FOR NEWS IN A FEW DAYS


This is an experimental beta-quality build of Quirky, using a 64-bit kernel with 32-bit apps, an architecture that I have nicknamed "neo64".

Introduction and installation notes here:

I currently have a short todo list:

1. Drive image, fix 2nd-GPT not at end of drive.
2. SeaMonkey 1st startup, not my Jumping Off page.
3. Samba SSM, change default /root to /file.
4. Tidy up 'mount' script.
5. SNS sometimes does not connect.
6. Need a new theme.


Comments

A clarification:

This build is not x32, it is normal x86 (ia32) packages running with a 64-bit kernel.

I am currently exploring a recompile in T2 to build a true x32 system, to get the speed benefits.

1. Drive image, fix 2nd-GPT not at end of drive.
2. SeaMonkey 1st startup, not my Jumping Off page. DONE
3. Samba SSM, change default /root to /file. DONE
4. Tidy up 'mount' script.
5. SNS sometimes does not connect.
6. Need a new theme.
7. Popup remains after MoManager quits.


I think that number 7 was reported by xanad.
