With the release of Toorox 01.2010 you can get a 64-bit edition, too. It contains the 2.6.32 kernel and the KDE was updated to version 4.3.4. The Toorox installer is now able to set up your /home folder on another partition and you can install the bootloader into a single partition or a floppy disk. There’s a new entry in Systemconfig – Mobile Broadband, where you can configure your mobile UMTS connection and bring it up. All packages for a PPTP VPN connection were included and you can configure it via NetworkManager and the nm applet. KFTPgrabber was replaced with gFTP and there is a new audio mixer – mixxx.” See the full release announcement for further details.

partedmagicPatrick Verner has announced the release of Parted Magic 4.6, a specialist live CD designed for disk management and data rescue tasks: “Parted Magic 4.6 is a mostly a bug-fix release with some usability improvements. Key changes: many fixes and changes for Netbooks; GNU Parted bug ‘ERROR: Current NTFS volume size is bigger than the device size!’ is fixed; Parted Magic Save Session uses xz instead of 7-zip; ClamAV was added, but you have to download the definitions yourself; Flash Player can be downloaded and installed from the panel’s application launcher; a simple program to change the keyboard layout was added to the desktop; a new program added (lxrandr) to re-size the display while running inside of X.Org; ROXTerm was replaced by an svn build of LXTerminal; Clonezilla was removed from the main Parted Magic image because it’s not possible to make a rescue ISO without downloading a template.” Visit the project’s home page to read the full release announcement. Download (MD5): pmagic-4.6.iso.zip (82.0MB).
