EasyOS 32-bit Dunfell-series version 4.3.1

August 02, 2022 — BarryK

Bumped to version

This has bumped Limine from 3.12.1 to 3.14
ROX-Filer now works properly.

You can update, however, a full image download and write to usb-stick is required to update the bootloader.

Here it is (v4.3.1):

The version numbering is for the EasyOS infrastructure, not a measure of 32-bit compatibility.
I have only tested on one old 32-bit laptop, works fine, but there could be issues on other old computers.
This is released with "minimal support", as I don't want to be distracted too much from the main thrust, which is for 64-bit computers.

If you don't know how to write an image file to a usb-stick, see here:

I did also test it on my modern Lenovo desktop PC, and Xorg defaulted to the 'fbdev' driver. Ran xorgwizard and chose 'intel' driver and that worked. Posted yesterday about testing on an old 2005-vintage laptop:

One issue: ROX-Filer in file text-display mode, shows incorrect file sizes. I vaguely recall seeing that many years ago, but cannot recall the cause.

Forum feedback welcome here:

It has Firefox, not SeaMonkey. However, if there is demand for the SM suite, I can include it in the next release 9as well as FF).
