New Refracta Isos

Postby fsmithred » December 26th, 2017, 6:27 pm

I've uploaded new refracta-9 no-X isos:
https://sourceforge.net/projects/refrac ... s/testing/

Based on Devuan-2.0 ASCII (pre-beta by probably a few days)

No-X does not mean minimal. It's crammed with a lot of extra utilities, as usual.

login:password user:user root:root

No refracta9 desktop isos yet. I might upload ones made from systems upgraded from jessie, but they are bigger than CD size. I haven't decided yet how to get them down to CD size. I'll take suggestions on what packages to leave out.

Update (2017-12-30): Newer installer fixes some bugs. Also includes partial German translation.
https://sourceforge.net/projects/refrac … b/download
* select_grub_dev if grub-pc is copied to /target and installed. (Fixes no bootloader installed on bios system)
* Fixed disable autologin when sudo is default.
* Include preliminary (partial) German translation file. refractainstaller-base (9.3.2)


I'll update the isos with the new installer some time soon. Until then you'll have to copy the new package into the live session and install it before running the installer. sftp works.

Thanks fsmithred.

Can one consider [Refracta8.3_xfce_amd64] as minimal or out-dated?

refracta 8.3 is jessie, which is old but still supported. I wouldn't call it minimal, but it is somewhat lean - no-recommends is the default setting for apt.
