CALAMARES GOT IMPROVED

Jump in calamares version from 3.2.10 to 3.2.15

CALAMARES IS THE REASON FOR THIS EARLY RELEASE

Thanks to the great support of the Calamares team and Adriaan in particular we can now use the calamares application to get our vmlinux-linux kernel on the iso – the integrated way. This extra functionality is there for any Arch Linux distro out there.

The unpack module of Calamares has been changed so that ArcoLinux can use it to get the linux kernel at the right place, at the right time with the right name.

Changing calamares and its configuration has a huge impact (read workload) on ArcoLinux. At least 34 packages get changed by it.

Carli-2

Customized

Arch

Linux

Iso

Coloring of Carli has a meaning

C = color from ArcoLinux

AR = color from Arch Linux

L = color from the feet of our little linux mascotte called Tux

I = color from an iso – silver/grey

Carli-2
has been created due to the fact that the base group package changed to a metapackage, which had consequences for us all.

 

Dropdown terminal in XFCE4

xfce4-terminal as dropdown on XFCE4

F12 is the keyboard shortcut that sets this terminal.
