Changes since the last release:

  • Many bug fixes
  • Added missing packages
  • Firstboot now works, this version gives sudo access to the first user created
  • All application launchers that need root priviledges now use sudo
  • Removed duplicate application launchers

There is a problem in the installation that prevents a few packages from getting installed. Here are the steps:

Boot after install, don’t login. Switch to a console (ctrl-alt-f2) and login as root.

conary update sudo
conary update firstboot
conary update sound-juicer
conary update a2ps
conary update beagle

Then reboot. You will be greeted with firstboot, follow the wizard. The user that gets created here gets sudo access now.
