SOFTWARE VERSIONS

  • Ken Bradley

    When will the 64 bit version be released?

    • Starbuck2001

      Hi Ken, we hope to have it ready by the end of the week.

      • Ken Bradley

        Awesome want to try it out.

      • Martyn Lewis

        can’t wait! I tried the 32 bit version and it was AMAZING! – this could well and truly be THE Linux distro, it has everything and is absolutely gorgeous. A very sincere thank you to the team, you guys are truly amazing. I have tried almost every Linux distro, been distro-hopping ever since the first Ubuntu was released and I think I will stop now.

      • Ares Arikitarukimo Andariel

        Hi there, I’m impressed by the job done on this distro… but what I think it lacks is of some devs contacts. There’s this place for comments, but there’s no IRC canal, no mailing list to follow.. I wanted to help you out releasing the 64 bit version earlier but I can’t… dunno even why it takes so long…. still waiting for the release so bad :D !!

  • Flexo

    Why do you use Adwaita gnome theme in KDE?

    • Starbuck2001

      You mean the Adwaita cursor theme? Because its nice and available in multiple sizes…

      • Flexo

        No, the windows borders are from adwaita theme(Gnome).

  • ichigo Reloaded

    so.. netrunner move away from deb based?

    • Starbuck2001

      No. The Standard version (based on Kubuntu/Debian) will continue normally.

  • Adi Iţă

    Will the 64 bit have the preload too?

    • Starbuck2001

      Yes.
      It can also easily be disabled under System Settings -> Startup & Shutdown -> Autostart by unticking preload Enabled.

      • Adi Iţă

        thanks for the reply! I’m really excited about the 64bit release :)

  • Sergio E. Durán

    Hello I like Netrunner Arch only one suggerence use this plasma theme and window style, is Oxygen with its titlebar icon only toolbars and Artic way oxygen cold, my own colour scheme; maybe if the guys of Nitrux make a special icon for Netrunner you should use Nitrux as your default icon theme, finaly you should add Cantata replasing Clementine and repairing the octopi’s theming, with this default configuration Netrunner Arch will look awesome :)

  • BSkeptic

    Any chance for kernel 3.11 any time soon?

    • Starbuck2001

      You can find 3.11, 3.12, 3.13 in the core repo, simply open octopi and search for “linux”.

      • BSkeptic

        Thanks! I haven’t installed it yet – waiting for the 64 bit. I just played around on a virtual machine. I noticed that the snapshot is released with 3.10 and I was wandering whether there is a specific reason for using the older kernel. Anyways, the whole project is awesome and I’ve been looking for something like this for ages.

        • Starbuck2001

          Since we are following Manjaro closely on the core, it seems that their philosophy is to keep the core stable over a longer time period, hence 3.10.34 shows its their 34th update on the 3.10-series. Eventually in the future, Netrunner could deviate from that and try installing latest kernel, but we need more evaluation for this to decide.

          • Martyn Lewis

            hey Starbuck, will the 64 bit version be released this week coming or later? Just wanted to ask because I have been running the 32 bit in a VM and I’m about to blow away my other OS to install Netrunner rolling but don’t want to do it if the 64 bit release is just around the corner

          • Starbuck2001

            Just around the corner… we want to fix as many things reported for the 32bit snapshot as possible and also change artwork again to satisfy ArchLinux.

          • steelmann

            Will the waiting for 64bit version be exciting like for Netrunner 13.12 last year?

          • Starbuck2001

            Well, there are some last issues with sddm and thus installer, both we debug, develop further and merge all changes back into their original repos. Then heartbleed let to certificates being invalid and resulting in memory leakages, that we also intend to fix by updating to the latest certs and make sure, we be able to update again in case should anything be replaced again. All this leads to develop, test, check and if found works, be released.

          • Matthias Schuster Scharmer

            Stay on the most stable Kernel: PLEASE :D

  • Mohammed Magdi

    I wasn’t going to move to LINUX because I own a commercial software company and develop in .Net. Then I tried Netrunner on one machine just for a giggle. Now its all I want to run!!! It is fast. It is beautiful. It is solid.It is very complete right out of the box. It does everything that a first class operating system should do..I am seriously rethinking my long term development strategy.

    • Starbuck2001

      Thanks Sheldon! Linux has come a long way and there are always things to improve, though we are working on it to get closer with each release.
