Major new features

New Linux kernel

Linux 2.6.30 is included with Finnix 93.0. SquashFS is now included with upstream kernels, so the only patch required for Finnix is now UnionFS.

Changes

92.1 -> 93.0

  • dist-upgrade
  • Upgraded kernels to 2.6.30 (Debian 2.6.30-5).
  • Upgraded Memtest86+ to 2.11.
  • Reordered main menu (x86).
  • Several fixes related to Debian and Linux upgrades.
  • Removed: evms (unmaintained upstream, obsolete, low penetration), unionfs-tools (incompatible with current UnionFS), cramfsprogs (not used by Finnix, low need outside Finnix), ftp (use lftp instead).
