sidux 2008.02 "erebos" released!

Since yesterday the new sidux release "erebos" is available! As sidux follows a rolling release cycle you can always update your running sidux to the latest release via regular dist-upgrades. erebos comes with kernel 2.6.25.9 and KDE 3.5.9, all software is up to date as of Debian sid on June 25th. You can read the full release notes here.
If you want to use "smxi", the sidux maintenance script, you have to install it manually because it is not part of "sidux-scripts" anymore. Read this post on sidux forum for more info. To install smxi follow h2's advise and run as root:
cd /usr/local/bin; wget techpatterns.com/smxi.zip; unzip smxi.zip
rm /usr/local/bin/smxi.zip



I'd strongly recommend using smxi for updating sidux - it's a lot safer!  ;-)

Installing erebos is as simple as with previous sidux releases: boot the live cd, run the installer and 5-10 minutes later it'll be on your hard disk and greets you with a new elegant art theme:




If you need more infos on how to install sidux, have a look at this post or consult the very good official sidux manual here.

So, if you're interested, download sidux, install it, have fun!
