GoboLinux Knowledge Base

GoboLinux now has a community space in the web: the GoboLinux Knowledge Base is a wiki where users and developers can share thoughts and information in a "less transient" way than in the mailing list. Check it out, enjoy, and contribute. Ultimately, how this space will end up being used is up to you. :)

A new look to welcome GoboLinux 010

A new look for a new era! GoboLinux 010 is out, with lots of improvements over 007. Among the new features are: a new installer, hardware detection, new custom themes. As usual, a number of packages were also upgraded. Some mirrors are still picking it up (check the updated list at the downloads page).

Rsync access

Thanks to our admin Ricardo Sanchez, GoboLinux now offers rsync access to its mirrors. The address is For regular downloads, we still recommend using one of our mirrors, since our server has low bandwidth and more often than not is heavily loaded. If you'd like to provide a mirror for the GoboLinux ISO, don't hesitate in contacting us, and we'll happily list you in the downloads page.

Articles section in Documentation page

Many posts from the mailing list provide valuable information, but usually they end up buried in the list archives. To solve this problem, a new section was added to the Documentation page, featuring those messages from the GoboLinux developers, formatted as informal articles. Three articles from the past month were added, and new ones are expected to pop up there from time to time.

Brazilian mailing list

We are proud to announce the first foreign language (or, better put, native language) mailing list for GoboLinux: gobolinux-br. But don't let the ISO language code deceive you, this is a list for all things GoboLinux in Portuguese. Brazilian users (and Portuguese (Angolan, etc.) users -- do we have any? :-) ) are all welcome at the new list. While GoboLinux devs will be there to answer questions, chit-chat and whatnot, development will continue to happen at the main mailing list.

GoboLinux 010rc1 is ready for a spin

So, GoboLinux 010rc1 is here. Lots of important improvements on this one, including hardware detection based on Kudzu and a graphical installer (which also works in text-mode with a curses interface). As the 'rc1' in the name implies, this is pretty close to a stable version, but it is still a development release. There are a few known issues and new ones may pop in the mailing list before 010 final is out, so, if you want to help us make 010 truly rock, give 010rc1 a spin and report your experiences in the list. We are especially interested in hear about any bugs related to the new features.

And no, we did not bump the version number. Release numbers are octal... they all start with 0, get it? :)

Updated Scripts package

A new release of the Scripts package is available for download here. It fixes an important bug regarding the activation of the sandbox feature. Therefore, the upgrade is highly recommended. Installation of the Scripts package is identical to that of any other package (no special bootstrapping is required).

If you have an 006 based GoboLinux, turn it 007-compatible using the Conversion Script before to install this new version of the Scripts.

• 2004-11-07 00:22 server upgraded

The server is back and received a long needed OS upgrade. Services are still being restored, so we apologize for any inconvenience. Thanks to our brave new admin, Ricardo Sanchez, who has been working hard in the last few days to bring things up to speed.

GoboLinux 007 released

GoboLinux 007 After some weeks of intensive work, GoboLinux 007 final is available for download (download it!). Since 006, there were major improvements all over the system, including the funcionality required to pack "Environment", "Daemons" and "Default Settings" information within packages (using the "Resources" directory). The LiveCD experience was also severely improved: now you can run even KDE and OpenOffice without touching your hard disk. With the use of IsoLinux, most (maybe all) of the compatibility problems experienced when trying to boot the 006 CD on certain machines are solved.

If you have a GoboLinux 006 running, you don't need to reinstall it. Use the GoboLinux006-007 conversion script to turn your system fully compatible with the new scripts and packages.
