NTFS Bug in 02.2009_1 fixed

Details There is a small bug in Toorox 02.2009 which disallow NTFS partiton mount via a mouse click on the desktop. I have fixed that issue and released an updated version
(Toorox 02.2009_1). If you have already downloaded 02.2009, the issue can be solved with only one command:
- Click on Konsole and type in:
- sudo chmod 4755 /bin/ntfs-3g


Toorox 02.2009 released!

Details Toorox 02.2009 has finished and ready to download from Toorox Downloads.
Toorox KDE3 has come to an end and the last available version is 10.2008,
which contains KDE 3.5.10. There is no collateral development of Toorox with
KDE3 and so - Toorox 02.2009-KDE4 is Toorox 02.2009 (no suffix not anymore).

Main Components:
  • Kernel 2.6.28-gentoo-r1
  • Xorg-Server-1.5.3
  • KDE 4.2.0
  • OpenOffice 3.0.1
  • Kontact 1.4
  • Minefield 3.0.6
  • Kmail 1.11.0
  • Thunderbird
  • Vlc 0.9.8a
  • Cinelerra 20090210
  • Ardour 2.7.1
Nearly all packages were upgraded. As working environment KDE 4.2.0 is there for you.
Now booting from an optical USB drive is possible. Since some people had problems with
the driver for their VGA card (black screen after booting), you can now use the cheatcode
"xmodule" out of the bootmenu by pressing on the TAB key and attach it at the end of the line
(e.g. xmodule=vesa). I have written a small script that removes kwlan to configure your network
card (LAN+WLAN). You can now mount your NTFS partitions using the ntfs-3g driver (read-
write). Compiz has removed, cause Kwin does the compositing desktop effects now.
activation of these effects happens automatically when you have installed the binary driver for
your graphics card. There are some extensions in the Toorox Installer, so now you have
an option to create a new Linux partition from the device selection box. You have also the
option to choose between Toorox and Windows as your default operating system, when you
have installed the bootmanager.

More changes are listed in the Changelog ...
I hope you like it and wish you much fun with Toorox 02.2009.
