Quirky Pyro64 version 0.2 (alpha)This is the very first release of Quirky built from binary packages compiled from source in OpenEmbedded.
This is not a "final" release, currently considered as alpha quality. Though, you are likely to find it to be pretty good. Feedback is requested, bugs reported, improvement suggestions.
The download file is only 290MB, yet has an incredible collection of applications, including LibreOffice, Kodi, Gimp, Planner, Pidgin, Dia, Xine, SeaMonkey, Gphoto2, Gparted and Grisbi -- plus lots more!
Here are release notes and issues, in no particular order:
InstallationTo install, there are choices:
There is the file 'pyro64-0.2.usfs.xz', which requires a script to install. Scripts to choose from are: 4install-quirky-to-drive-gpt, 4install-quirky-to-drive-mbr, 4install-quirky-to-partition, installquirky.amd64 and installquirky.x86.
The latter two are intended to work on Linux systems that might not have all the pre-requisites for an installation -- note, I haven't tested those last two for a very long time.
If the above is too intimidating, there is a simple flash stick image, for 8GB stick, 'pyro64-0.2-8gb.img.xz'.
