Fourth MEPIS 6.0 beta steps up to a 2.6.17 kernel

January 29th, 2007 Comments off

DesktopLinux report that the new MEPIS 6.0 beta has LiveUSB support.

As for the USB key support, the MEPIS System Assistant reportedly can now install either the 32 or 64-bit version from a CD to a USB key. According to Woodford, “it will also reformat the key so it will be properly recognized on any machine that can boot from USB key. This should only be done with a high-speed key. Unfortunately the key is incompatible with MacTel firmware, so this will only work on a PC.”

Unix Review takes a look at SimplyMEPIS 3.4-3, starting with impressions of the LiveCD.

This time around, booting MEPIS was a much better experience. The user login screen was presented quickly, I logged in, and after a few disc whirs the desktop lay before me in all of its glorious KDE beauty and splendor, with stereo sound to boot.

First Look at SimplyMEPIS 3.4-3

March 10th, 2006 Comments off

Mad Penguin has a good review up of SimplyMEPIS 3.4-3. It includes lots of screenshots and even a flash video.

The thing that sets MEPIS apart from many of the live CDs in circulation today is its graphical installer. While I see this becoming more and more common, it’s rare to see an installer as well done as this particular one.
