Avalie este Post de Blog

o debian sidux é um debian, mas um pouco diferente porque é baseado nos pacotes instáveis do sid. entretanto, o sidux deu uma tremenda estabilidade aos pacotes instáveis do sid e tornando um live cd/live dvd tão amigável como o ubuntu (que se baseia também no sid);basta você dar boot no cd/dvd e clicar f4 para instalar o debian sidux. e o forum de suporte à lingua portuguesa - sidux brasil está fazendo crescer os usuários do sidux no brasil. como o debian sidux também faz parte do contrato social debian (tratando-se praticamente uma distro irmã do debian etch e do lenny) e sei que muitos usuários admiram o debian sidux pela suas facilidades dadas pelos excelente script smxi/sgxi que facilmente qualquer usuário iniciante do gnu linux instala placas de vídeos diversas, plugins do sun java, plugins do flash, atualizam (ou removem) o kernel (mantendo a distro sempre atualizada) alteram os sources.list da distro, atualizam servidores, instalam aplicativos como o navegador opera, o open office, light office, intalam o skype, google earth e muito mais coisas que não daria para comentar aqui.atualmente muitos usuários também são usuários do debian sidux (e/ou do debian sid); e para aqueles que gostam de experimentar uma distro nova, mas com toda estabilidade e segurança do debian, tenho o prazer de noticiar em primeira mão aqui que foi lançado mais uma versão pre do sidux. leiam mais em

After quite some infrastructural changes is sidux 2008-04 "Πόντος" now ready to enter the preview season, available in the following flavours for now:

* KDE-lite, amd64, en/ de, ≈460 MB.
* KDE-lite, i686, en/ de, ≈455 MB.
* XFCE-lite, amd64+i686, ≈685 MB.

Please note this is not the final release, the full featured final release of "Πόντος" will be ready in about 1-2 weeks, further previews might be provided as needed until then.

sidux is a full featured Debian sid based live CD with a special focus on hard disk installations, a clean upgrade path within sid and additional hard- and software support. The ISO is completely based on Debian sid, enriched and stabilized with sidux' own packages and scripts.
Release notes for Πόντος preview 1

"Πόντος" concentrates on integrating the changes caused by kernel 2.6.27, init optimisations accomplished by insserv and in particular overhauling the installer.

While kernel 2.6.27 improves and stabilises hardware support for newer devices, like Intel IPW5xxx and Atheros AR9xxx 802.11 draft-n wlan chipsets, and chipsets significantly, it also splits out a number of binary firmware blobs formerly shipped inside the kernel image. Please attend to non-free sources and Drivers for an overview.

Starting with "Πόντος", sidux is using "insserv" to reorder and optimise the sysv initscripts used during the system boot, this doesn't only improve the boot times, but also allows easier de-/ activating of particular initscripts using standard tools.

Another topic for this release is refactoring and optimising the installer, choosing new internet access tools for handling PPP, in particular GPRS/ UMTS, connections, but also improved support for kvm and other infrastructural changes. Furthermore a large number of individual functionality enhancements and bugfixes have been applied to the full package line up and especially sidux' own packages.

Our special thanks go to the sidux art team and especially all mirror hosters for their efforts regarding sidux.
