Voyage Linux 0.7.0 released

By punkytse - Posted on 09 February 2011

We are proud to present a new Voyage Linux 0.7.0, which includes 2.6.32 kernel and is based on Debian 6.0 "Squeeze", after 12 months of last release.

One of the greatest improvement in this release is the speedup of system start-up which is introduced by Debian Squeeze.

Since this version, we drop the idea of stable/development versions. Instead, all releases on or after 0.7.0 should be considered as beta quality.

Our long term plan is to keeping Voyage Linux as a base distribution and keep up with latest kernel and Debian, while we continue to explore other special purposed editions such as Voyage ONE and Voyage MPD. Next milestone will be including a webgui which could be found now in Voyage MPD.

[2011-02-16 Update]: After the release, some known issues are identified:

  • PXE netboot in Live CD does not work.
  • After using SDK to build Live CD with custom built kernel, missing symlink in /initrd.img and /vmlinuz which make the customized Live CD not installable.

Please also note that there is no official upgrade path for 0.6.5 to 0.7, although it could done manually, in step-by-step manner. We welcome any contribution of the upgrade procedures that had proved to work.
