I think this is pin worthy news...

Like I needed more Champagne...

Congrats guys! Thanks to all who pushed a piece of code!


I would personally like to give huge thanks to the relentless testers. Platypus-man most especially. Without he and bongowongo tirelessly downloading new snaps and finding bugs/maintaining the snapshot page, this would have taken MUCH longer than it already did. Bushtech, Seth, jamo, DragonK... RayBe who would test/break his system at the drop of a hat, and provided artwork and that very pretty bluecrystal UI... and Armor Gnome most recently... many many thanks.

The list is far and wide... these are the ones that come to mind that were kind enough to deal with me.

Thanks to Merkur2k for always having time to find/fix things that knocked through roadblocks I encountered. Tschak for being generally brilliant and always available to explain the deep dark inner workings.

I would like to thank posde specifically for making this all possible and working fairly tirelessly on this project.
I never quit... I just ping out.

Anyone mind if I update the main wiki page to reflect the change of status?


PS: Done,... There goes my ADHD again... The wiki now reflects the beta release status and the 1004 install page now references the beta release, gives the link to the releases and also still references the snapshots page info...

Thank you JaseP

In today's world, if you don't have ADHD... you aren't paying attention.

Heck, Yeah! I know its been a long time since my last post back in 7.10. I am running 8.10 now and so much more stable. So much has been addressed to things I said where problems as in the mythtv not recording in the right directories. Now works as it was designed. Great work!!! I am now working on figuring the QT out so I can possibly contribute to the great lmce it is meant to be. No more static now dynamic!

Congrats to all involved, great team work.

I am now downloading 1004 for testing and I notice the size is smaller than usual snapshots (2.54GB), Is this correct?

Yes. There was a lot of multiplicity in the /var/cache/apt/archives directory we now delete.

Those trying 1004 for the first time, please be aware of the fact that on the snapshots, you do NOT need to run Diskless_CreateTBZ.sh as it is embedded. Network installs will still require it. From snap install you just have to plug an MD in and roll.

A big congratulation to all who are involved,

thanks for all their effort, time invested, code added and patience while giving support.

i would personally wanna thank: L3mce for his contribution, insights and user-support; Tschak for his deep knowledge, user-support and explanations; Foxi352 for doing RoamingOrb, Asterix and user-support; posde for his huge knowledge, never ending contribution to the system and user-support; Hari for his never ending additions to the device-database and user-support and Golgoj4 for his qOrbiter and user-support.

Thanks for making this such a great project.

Great news!  This will make setup sooo much easier for people!
