Major new features

Finnix is back from a 5 year hiatus! Finnix 120 is a complete overhaul, with the following major changes (as well as too many minor changes to enumerate):

  • Finnix 120 is now a native 64-bit amd64 userland and kernel system. For older 586/686/PowerPC support, Finnix 109 is recommended as the last Finnix release which was well-supported on those 32-bit platforms.
  • Both BIOS and UEFI booting are now available, with Secure Boot.
  • Hundreds of new utility packages have been added.
  • Automatic setup attempts of complex block device layouts have been removed, in favor of management via udisksctl with tab-completion.
  • Other legacy features and boot modes have been discontinued or are no longer supported, in favor of core USB/CD booting.
  • ISO size has increased (477 MiB, from 160 MiB), but the goal is to continue to keep it under the size of a CD-R.
  • NEALE, the bespoke build system used by Finnix, has been discontinued. Finnix is now built as a customized system based on the debian-live build software.

Errata

  • No known errata at this time. For general troubleshooting and notes, please see Documentation.

Signature verification

To verify download integrity, please use the provided OpenPGP signature. Download finnix-120.iso (the main file) and finnix-120.iso.gpg (the detached signature), then run:

gpg --recv-keys 867279B83BF8E815A236D39E7D6F85C04356E6C2
gpg --verify finnix-120.iso.gpg finnix-120.iso

The verification output should look similar to below:

gpg: Signature made using RSA key 867279B83BF8E815A236D39E7D6F85C04356E6C2
gpg: Good signature from "Finnix Release Signing Key <keymaster@finnix.org>"

Be sure to explicitly check the reported signature matches Finnix Release Signing Key's OpenPGP signature, 8672 79B8 3BF8 E815 A236 D39E 7D6F 85C0 4356 E6C2.

The following non-signature hashes are also available. While verifying the OpenPGP signature is preferred, these can be used as lower-trust verification, as long as the entire hash is verified.
