PCLinuxOS 2020.01 updated installation media release
« on: January 14, 2020, 06:35:09 AM »
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.

Download link: http://ftp.nluug.nl/pub/os/Linux/distr/pclinuxos/pclinuxos/live-cd/64bit/
Torrent Links:  https://bit.ly/2TlHOSI

Major changes: The kernel has been updated to 5.4.11. KDE has been updated: Frameworks 5.66, Plasma Desktop 5.17.5 and Applications 19.12.1. XFCE desktop updated to 4.14.2. XFCE now has Undercover Mode available from the software repository to flip your desktop to look like Windows. A fun way to fool your Window friends. 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.

It should be noted that users of PCLinuxOS have the following services available: Cloud storage, Email, Graphic Image Hosting, and Chat messenger. Forum members can sign up at:

That is it for this month! Have fun and thank you for using PCLinuxOS.

It's funny how you can think of additional things to add after you've already uploaded the ISO. LOL

Isn't that the truth lol. I'm having "issues" which I don't understand, built an ISO, transferred to usb, test using vbox test media, no issues, try on metal, fails to mount squashfs... thought it was the size, so removed a couple of programs, tried again, same thing. tested on 2 machines same result. kind of slowed my release, oh tested in both efi and bios mode on metal. this is Trinity not your ISO which just worked, dagnabbit :D

I have had a few occasions where I get a failed to mount sqfs file, but usually a reboot worked for me.
I wondered if it was the USB device or the burn, because the ISOs it happened on worked on most of the time.

Sometimes a complete shutdown, then plug in the usb stick and booting it works.
