Release Announcement

Hot on the heels of our 1.0.6 32bit pae release, due to popular demand we are releasing our first ever 64bit version of Linux Lite. Enjoy all the features of our 32bit pae version, now in 64bit. In an effort to keep the final iso size to a minimum we have provided a one click Steam installer due to the ia32-libs and additional dependencies that Steam requires on a 64bit operating system. Thank you to everyone who contributed ideas, code and their support. There is no update process from the beta version.

If you haven't already, please consider 'liking' our Facebook page - https://www.facebook.com/pages/Linuxlite/572323192787066 and help spread the word to people who may not have heard of linux operating systems before.

Live USB/DVD/VirtualBox/Vmware: Login is automatic, no credentials required.
The image can be written to a 2gb or larger USB stick, or a writable DVD.
Alternatively, you can use the dd command: sudo dd if=linux-lite-1.0.6-64bit.iso of=/dev/sdx bs=4M where 'x' is the letter of your usb stick.
In linux to find out the letter of your usb stick, open a terminal and type: df -h It is usually listed as 'media' or similar.
Please see the built in Help & Support manual if you require a more detailed explanation of this procedure.

Recommended Hardware/Minimal System requirements:

A 64bit capable cpu processor.
512 MiB RAM+
5 GB of hard-drive space+
VGA capable of 1024x768 screen resolution
Either a DVD drive or a USB port for the iso

Login to the live desktop is automatic.

Using this architecture also means 64bit will idle with more ram than the 32bit version (around 220mb for 64bit vs 140mb for the 32bit version from a cold boot). This is why for so long I have been such a staunch advocate of 32bit pae operating systems, but I am nonetheless happy to provide a 64bit version for those who require one. The end user benefits from the overall performance of a 64bit operating system.

In 1.0.8 the pae kernel will be dropped, but will still be available via an install script for those that want it. This is good news for those with older hardware and allows us to cover the maximun possible spectrum of personal computers within the 3.2 kernel.





Features/Fixes:

Exact same features as our 32bit pae version.
Kernel 3.2.0.48
Updated Help Manual.
2 new install scripts, Install ia32-libs and Install Steam.
Steam installer now in Install Additional Software (to save on iso size)
Custom installation slides should now work in all languages.
Fixed Firefox opening files dialogue.
All custom scripts now also work via the Desktop right click (thanks to rattatoue and SoulSpire)
