Filed under: Distributions — tuxicity @ 2:00 pm

Yuichiro Nakada has announced a new release of Berry Linux, version 0.78, a Fedora-based live CD with support for 3D desktop with AIGLX and Beryl. The new release uses the Linux kernel 2.6.19.2, compiled with symmetric multi-processing support, udev/ndev and boot splash. The live CD employs the latest Squashfs (version 3.2) and FUSE (version 2.6.1) file systems with full NTFS read and write support via the ntfs-3g driver. On the desktop, Berry Linux 0.78 comes with KDE 3.5.5, OpenOffice.org 2.1.0 and Firefox 1.5.0.9. Among the changes in this release, Beryl has been updated to version 0.1.4, WINE to 0.9.27 and xine-lib to 1.1.3, while Vim 7.0 is a new addition to the live CD. Xgl and DirectFB have been removed from the distribution.
