A video of the GoboLinux 015 installation and desktop

Portuguese blogger Marcelo Salvador of RibaLinux posted a nice video showcasing the GoboLinux 015 installation and desktop. Check it out! He runs the installer and graphic desktop through a virtual machine, as a window inside another distro, so we recommend enabling full-screen and HD when watching.

Introducing GoboLinux 015

We are pleased to introduce GoboLinux 015, the new major release of GoboLinux, the Linux distribution featuring a rethought file system structure. This is the first full-system image release in a number of years, after a long period in which we kept only updating compilation recipes. Packages were built using both ALFS (Automated Linux from Scratch) and our custom dynamically-generated sandboxed environment which insulates the source code and its dependencies during compilation. Major upgrades include the Enlightenment 18 desktop and kernel version 3.14.2, as well as new versions of the GoboLinux management tools. Please check the Release Notes for details and download instructions.

GoboLinux 015 beta-3

We are pleased to announce the release of GoboLinux 015 beta3. We have had several updates on this snapshot that include changes to the desktop environment: for the first time, we're shipping the ISO with Enlightenment as a default desktop.

We have also completed the transition from /System/Links to /System/Index.

This snapshot also introduces a number of new packages that should enrich the desktop experience. We have fixed all issues that have been reported since beta2 and worked hard to make this release as polished and close to final as possible.

The ISO can be downloaded here:

Please test it and give us your feedback. You can always reach us on the mailing lists or at the #gobolinux channel on irc.freenode.net!

Announcing GoboWing: GoboLinux for Cygwin

Fabio Mierlo announced today a new project called GoboWing. It is a port of the GoboLinux tools to Cygwin, allowing them to be used on top of Windows. It is currently based on Rootless and aims to become a full Gobo-ified Cygwin distro. The first public release is GoboWing 0.0.4 and it is now available -- the installation instructions guide you through the installation of Cygwin and the application of the GoboWing modifications.

Gobolinux.org back up

The main gobolinux.org website is now back up, after being taken down for inspection once a security breach was detected. All main services provided by the website should be up again by now, except for a few administrative features. Sorry about the inconvenience and thanks to everyone who worked on getting things back on track. If anything is still broken, be sure to let us know through the mailing lists.

Status update and we got a blog!

It has been a while since last news post, but that doesn't mean that development has stopped or even stagnated. A lot has happened under the surface and those that follow mailing lists, forums, hang out in IRC or just subscribe to the recipe RSS feed can see that we have not been lazy. What can be said is that we could use more manpower to move faster, because there is no lack of ideas or goals within the project. Besides that our tools are always evolving, we now have a simple but powerful use flag implementation and with a new simpler recipe API coming in next release, our package/recipe repository is continuously growing and is kept up to date, with for example KDE 4.2.0 and GCC 4.3.3.

To get more continuity in our communication and to get better information flow to our users and fans we have finally started a blog. Here we will make small (and sometimes big) notes, that do not warrant their own news post, about what is currently happening within development of GoboLinux.

And stay tuned for a new release of Scripts and Compile soon...
