News Comments Off on PCLinuxOS 2020.01 updated installation media release

The PCLinuxOS Project has announced the release of updated installation media for PCLinuxOS. The new media carries the version number 2020.01 and contains a fully updated system as of January 13, 2020. It is not required to do a clean installation each month since PCLinuxOS is a rolling release. These ISOs are being provided so new users don’t have a large update to perform after installation from a dated ISO. Please note if you plan on booting and/or installing PCLinuxOS 2020.01 in Virtualbox then please use Virtualbox 6.1.0 or better as it has support for the 5.4.x kernels.

XFCE now has Undercover Mode available from the software repository to flip your desktop to look like Windows. The MATE desktop received many package updates. BT mouse and keyboards should pair and work better in this release. Some font corruption affecting a very small number of Intel systems has been mostly resolved. Many udev rules were found scattered in various places have now been consolidated into the proper folders.

The KDE ISOs now come in 3 sizes. The mininalistic Darkstar (1 gb) features the basic Plasma desktop to allow the power user to fill it out with their preferred desktop applications from the software repository. KDE basic (2 gb) provides the Plasma desktop with a set of the most common applications for Internet, Multimedia and Graphics. KDE Magnum (3.6 gb) contains a large assortment of applications with a little more of everything because frankly you deserve it. A great way to showcase what is available in Linux to people who are curious about the operating system.

Scheduled Web Server Maintenance

News Comments Off on Scheduled Web Server Maintenance

On Sunday, Jan 12 2020, we will be doing routine backups of both the PCLinuxOS website and the forum. At that time we will also update the server software to the most current release of Apache and PHP 7

Hopefully any outages that occur will be brief.

This Maintenance will only effect the main PCLinuxOS website and the Forum.   All other services such as PCLOS-Mail, PCLOSCloud, PCLOS-Chat Server, repo, PCLOS Graphic Store and the KnowledgeBase will work as normal.
