EasyOS Kirkstone-series version 5.4.10 released

August 08, 2023 — BarryK

Great changes since 5.4.9! Look at the release notes:

Yes, Flowblade video editor is now builtin. I'm really doing that for myself, as intending to get into creating videos for YouTube and would like the convenience of inbuilt video editor.

I clicked on the "kirkstone" icon then started Flowblade in the container -- looks like it runs OK in a container also.

If you are new to EasyOS, please read the version 5.4 announcement:

The update from 5.4.9 is 142MB download, a bit bigger than usual, mostly due to the bump of Chromium version.

I have taken out both KeePassXC and FPM2. I posted recently that was changing to have FPM2 password manager builtin; however, most unfortunately, it segfaults when use the "-t" commandline option -- versions 0.79 and 0.90 both crash.

So, two possibilities. Either I write my own password manager, or trace FPM2 find where it is crashing and hopefully fix it. There is also a fundamental problem with how FPM2 is designed -- first time it is run, it won't go into the tray until a database has been created. You create the database, then have to exit and restart it to make it go into the tray -- even after the database exists, the fpm.ini file can specify that it start in the tray, but it will popup a window immediately, won't just startup minimized. It will start minimized if the "-t" option is used, but then it segfaults -- strangely, not always.

Intend to have the password manager sorted for the next release of Easy.

Have fun!
