Version 1.0.1 Released

Version 1.0.1 Released

Version 1.0.1 has been released. This is a maintenance release to fix installation issues with certain drives/hard disks.

There is no other changes, no new features etc. from version 1.0. Just the installer fixes.

If you have downloaded 1.0 already and it installs sucessfully, there is no need to get 1.0.1.

If you are having installation problems, and you don't want to download 1.0.1, you can follow the wiki entitled "Installation Problems?".

The new ISO images are on a newly acquired download server. I purchased some cheap web hosting in the US, so hopefully it serves up the downloads better for most folk.

Please help to seed the new torrents!

    I am running kwheezy from a 16 Gb kingston usb 2 flash drive recorded with unetbootin and 9999 mb for persistence.

    The computer suspended fine but on awakening I am asked for a password (the user is administrator).

    What is it?

    Thanks in advance.

    @dhinds: It's just kwheezy. I recommend you add a regular user using the "Kwheezy Manage Users" utility. It shouldn't take up much extra space.

    Really glad it works with persistence!

    Any plan for small version around 1.4gb just with basic apps ?

  4. euan on 08/11/2013 6 p.m. #

    No plans yet. I've had requests for a XFCE distro, that would be more lightweight.

    Kwheezy is designed to be a fat rich desktop based on KDE. I'm going by the logic that most livecd installers are over 700MB these days. If so, why not fill it up with useful apps etc. Who has < 150GB hard drive these days? The advanced users can either delete the stuff they don't want, or install Debian KDE from netinst and add to taste.

    If I get bored, or run out of stuff to do in the main edition. Maybe I'll consider a 'lite' edition.

    In the meantime, it's really easy to remove the bloat yourself and spin your own using kwheezy-livecd. Just install Kwheezy fresh, then from administrator account run "sudo kwheezy-livecd", burn resulting .iso it to DVD.

    Is it possible to install some part of Kwheezy (i.e. without any office packages)? Or installator writes every bit from DVD and there are no check boxes (install/not install)?

    @Arnoldas: Sorry, that is not possible. What you can do though is respin your own. It's easy. Just install to somewhere, doesn't matter about partitioning. Do the following from Administrator account:

    1) Remove and add the software you want.
    2) from terminal (press F12), run the command kwheezy-livecd .
    3) the resulting iso will be in the /home/kwheezy-livecd directory.
    4) burn it to DVD or dd to USB.

    Then you have your own custom Debian installation. Remember the password you used to install Kwheezy will be the one in your own re-spin.

    @Arnoldas: you are posting on v1.0.1 page. Just to let you know, 1.1 is the latest version. But updating the system after install gets you onto the latest version. The kwheezy-livecd package is also newer in the repository than v1.1 iso.
