Welcome to Parsix GNU/Linux 0.90r0 Release Notes


Parsix GNU/Linux is a GNU/Linux distribution designed for desktop and laptop computers. It can be used as a live CD too. Parsix GNU/Linux is based Debian and derived from KANOTIX. Parsix GNU/Linux contains the most common and needed applications for desktop/laptop users.

What's New in 0.90r0?


0.90r0 release (codename 'Barry') is a brand new version with updated software packages and improved functionality. The most important changes since 0.85.1 are:

Improved installer system The Parsix installer (p-i) now supports fully integrated "Update Installation" mode within the main menu. Users with existing installations can update their system trough the installer in a fully graphical mode.

Other notable changes in the installer system are:

  • lots of clean-ups
  • fixed several minor defects
  • implemented basic functions to support KDE

Updated/Added? Packages All packages have been synchronized with the Parsix and Debian repositories as June 17, 2007. Main changes are:

  • GNOME 2.18.2
  • X.Org 7.2.0
  • GNU Iceweasel 2.0.0.3

Other Notable Changes


Updating Existing Installations


Users with existing Parsix GNU/Linux installations can update their systems using APT or 0.90r0 CD-ROM. Updating with CD-ROM deletes all additional installed packages. So users, who have custom installed packages, should reinstall them after update through updated Parsix on the hard disk. A package diff file is saved to /root/diffpackages-xxxxxxxx-xxxx.txt that can be used to reinstall additional packages. Just use a command like the following to use the diff file:

$ apt-get update && apt-get install `cat /root/diffpackages-xxxxxxxx-xxxx.txt`

If you are planning to update your system using apt, see BarryAptUpgrade here?.

ipw3945d Notice


If you faced to a broken ipw3945d after installation, just run the following command as root user to fix it:

$ dpkg-reconfigure ipw3945d && reboot
