Always Current Lineox™ Enterprise Linux 3.0
Introductory price 10 €. CD or DVD download.
Always Current Lineox Enterprise Linux is a
version of Lineox Enterprise Linux 3.0 which is constantly updated
and contains only current versions of program packages. This means
that there is no instant need to download and update the system after
installation and the system is secure right from the start. Lets guess
that you save half an hour. Now ask yourself: is that time more valuable than 15 €?
The current version of Always Current Lineox™ Enterprise Linux is 3.146
and it contains 1330
updated packages totaling 1847.91
Lineox has an automated system running on a cluster which builds new binary rpm packages
as soon as new source code is available. New rpm packages are usually available in less
than 12 hours after source code release. After that
Lineox builds Always Current Lineox™ Enterprise Linux disks automatically,
but because of the time it takes to transfer the disk images to our web server, they
are available from 2 to 12 hours after we release new packages.
Starting from version 3.011, Always Current Lineox Enterprise Linux can be installed
to i586 class machines. Lineox Enterprise Linux 3.0 requires at least Pentium II class
machine. Version 3.011 also contains update 2 (a largish batch of updates).
Version 3.032 was the first version made also for 64-bit AMD processors.
Version 3.037 contains update 3 and the installation environment was rebuilt,
so it has better hardware support. Lineox has avoided respins because they
mean that different versions behave differently and that can cause bigger negative effects than
better hardware support.
Always Current Lineox Enterprise Linux contains only the base distribution, not LIFF,
and the extras directories found on the Lineox Enterprise Linux 3.0 DVD-ROM.
Isn't Always Current Lineox Enterprise Linux untested or unreliable if it is released so often?
Not really. We don't rebuild the installation environment, we just replace the installable packages
with new ones. You can even use same boot floppies or other boot media created for Lineox Enterprise Linux 3.0
to boot Always Current series Lineox Enterprise Linux. So Always Current Lineox Enterprise Linux is as tested
and reliable as a system installed from "base release" and updated later. The only difference really is the
work and time saved and the higher security right from the start.
