Toorox 01.2013 "KDE"


Toorox 01.2013 "KDE" has been finished and you can download it as 32bit or 64bit
image. This release bases on the latest Linux Kernel 3.7.1. All packages have been
updated. KDE has been updated to the latest version 4.9.4. Also containing:
Xorg-Server 1.13.0, LibreOffice, Chromium 24.0.1312.45, VLC 2.0.5,
Wine 1.5.20, Gimp 2.8.2 ...
With this release, Toorox make use of UUID's instead of simple devicenames in the
fstab file. So a ramdisk (initramfs) is now necessary after the installation for booting
the system from hard disk. The HD-Installer has been enhanced as to that.

Have fun with Toorox ...

Small bug: desktop doesn't load with Radeon HD graphics

Details Update: The current versions have been fixed now.

There's a small bug in the recent 08.2012 release: If your system is
powered with a Radeon HD graphics, the desktop doesn't load and
the boot process ends with the text konsole. Tomorrow i will upload
and exchange the fixed versions. If you are an owner of such a card,
please wait till tomorrow. If you still have downloaded 08.2012, you
can fix it by yourself - it's simple:


login: root
passwort: root
mcedit /etc/modprobe.d/radeon.conf
options radeon modeset=1
F10 save & exit
rmmod radeon
modprobe radeon

That's it.

I will leave a message here, when i've exchanged the .isos
