LXDE (LXDE)

LXQT (LXQT) — New addition with Fedora 26, additional/heavy testing requested.

Updated Fedora Lives Available (4.10.16-200) Memorial Weekend Run

 

We in the Respins SIG are pleased to mention the latest series of Updated Live Respins carrying the 4.10.16-200 Kernel.  These respins use the livemedia-creator tool packaged in the default Fedora repo and following the guide here as well as using the scripts located here.

As Always  there are available @  http://tinyurl.com/live-respins2

For those needing a non-shortened url that expands to https://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/alt/live-respins/

This round will be noticeably missing from it’s usual gpg clearsigned CHECKSUM|HASHSUM files hosted on https://community.ameridea.net due to a key cycling operation.  This post will be updated with the  new KeyID|Fingerprint next week however, next run will be the first run with that key in play.

 

F24 Updated ISOs available. (Kernel with Dirty Cow Patched)

It is with great pleasure to announce that the Community run respin team has yet another Updated ISO round.  This round carries the 4.7.9-200 kernel along with over 800 MB of updates (avg,  some Desktop Environments more, some less) since the Gold release back in June.

Torrents will be available at the same link as usual alongside the .iso files.

You have heard about this nasty privilege escalation bug called ‘Dirty Cow’ , well rest assured the infected farm and farmer have been found and the vaccine has been applied to the kernel in these updates. More info on ‘Dirty Cow’  on my blog post on it here.
