Audax is a Gnu/Linux distribution based on Debian 7.
If all goes well then the first alpha version should be out 12th of April 2015 (or even sooner).
Link to release notes: www.techtimejourney.net/audax/…
I also have a section called Audax instructions, which addresses all the things I think are important to know - so that you could really harvest all the power of the system: www.techtimejourney.net/catego…
And lastly here is the Audax screenshot gallery: www.techtimejourney.net/audax/…
Audax 0.3 will likely come out as an alpha on the 12th of April. And just to clarify: my idea of alpha is a system that is usable and stable but might still lack some features that I think should be there.
Excuse me if I made some typos in this message, which I wrote in a terrible hurry
P.S. If you use dual screens and you dislike the idea of shortkey instructions being integrated to wallpapers you can install either audax-wallpapers package or calmwaters-wallpapers.
sudo apt-get install audax-wallpapers
sudo apt-get install calmwaters-wallpapers
I must admit that integrating the shortkeys was a bit of a miss. I will return to a more traditional way of doing things on 0.3.
But in any case: if you see anything you feel is off or missing let me know and I will try to fix it.
pcmanfm seems a better option for the regular linux user, in fact it's not very different from my favourite file manager (nemo, which is a fork that brings back all the features missing from nautilus and much more)
and btw what's the linux kernel version? i have a relatively new graphics card and it's only supported in 3.16 and later
it is partially supported and i can play some games with wine on it, but the problem is it doesn't support the VBO feature on blender (it speeds up the 3D viewport up to 10 times ) and everytime i select an object i get a segmentation fault error and blender crashes
i tried to install the open source drivers but they seem to work only for ubuntu 14.04 and not on debian (i haven't tried to compile it from the source code that time, i tried the .deb that was made for ubuntu)
so, what i'm saying is that it works for music, internet, office and everyday use, but for something that requires some more 3D features it will give problems, but most of the users will not need it
btw here's where i get my drivers for ubuntu 14.04, it seems that they moved to 14.10 now 01.org/linuxgraphics/downloads
1. Boot the Audax 0.2. media.
2. Once you are in the Boot menu and you have live (audax) entry selected press the Tab key (↹).
3. Pressing the Tab key shows you the boot parameters of a given menu entry. Now, go and remove the line, which says toram . Now, press the enter key and your system will boot to a regular live-mode, which has the Ramboot feature disabled.
In case you are interested about reading more about ramboot see this: www.techtimejourney.net/the-ca…
If you run the system inside a virtualbox then disabling ramboot might be a good idea - since virtualbox is known to misbehave sometimes.
that's a good idea because i'm not giving it more than 1GB of ram in V-Box, but i might "burn" the iso file directly to a pendrive (or use unetbootin) and run it , in this case i won't need to disable ramboot since i have 4GB of ram
and btw, ram boot loads the squashfs to the ram as it is in the iso (no size change) or unpacks it before?
Just in case you are interested in trying 0.2. here is a link to its sourceforge page: sourceforge.net/projects/audax…
If you have absolutely no idea what is your network card’s name then open a terminal client and type:
The results should be similar to below (where eth0 is the wired network card we are looking for):
lo no wireless extensions.
eth0 no wireless extensions.
iwconfig is usually used when configuring wireless cards but the command can also be used to figure out wired card locations - like above.
