Now that aptosid has opened its gates, we have the pleasure to announce the immediate availability of the aptosid 2010-02 "Κῆρες" release. Aptosid is created by the same team of volunteers developing software under the Debian Free Software Guidelines and continues what has been started in November 2006 under the name "sidux". This release is shipping in the following flavours:

  • KDE-lite, amd64, en/ de, ≈600 MB.
  • KDE-lite, i686, en/ de, ≈595 MB.
  • KDE-full, amd64+i686, en/ de (el, es, fr, hr, it, ja, nl, pt, pt_BR, ro, ru through liveapt) ≈2.2 GB.
  • XFCE, amd64, en/ de, ≈490 MB.
  • XFCE, i686, en/ de, ≈480 MB.

aptosid is a full featured Debian sid based live CD with a special focus on hard disk installations, a clean upgrade path within sid and additional hardware and software support. The ISO is completely based on Debian sid, enriched and stabilized with aptosid' own packages and scripts.

A bug has been found in the installer, which accidentally removes /etc/apt/sources.list.d/aptosid.list if adding non-free Firmwares gets selected. Not selecting this option avoids this bug and allows adapting /etc/apt/sources.list.d/debian.list afterwards, in order to install firmware or other non-free packages.

Today aptosid opens its gates to continue the distribution previously known as "sidux", created by the same team of volunteers developing software under the Debian Free Software Guidelines. A seamless crossgrade path from sidux to aptosid will be provided until the end of 2010. However a quick change is suggested because of potential issues outside of our influence.

Aptosid is a full featured Debian sid based live CD with a special focus on hard disk installations, a clean upgrade path within sid and additional hardware and software support. The ISO is completely based on the free main component of Debian sid, enriched and stabilised with aptosid's own packages and scripts.

Aptosid 2010-02 "Κῆρες", based on Debian sid, kernel 2.6.35 and KDE 4.4.5 will be released shortly.
